This is a very large, all encompassing guide. Its purpose is to help you, the Game Master, to create and develop your Universe. While this guide might not suit everyone's needs, it is here to assist you in starting up your roleplay, and is written by people who have started up roleplays.
This is a guide for Roleplayers, made by fellow Roleplayers, so if you have suggestions or feedback, then please send either @Neptune or @Temaelrinan EcchiText with comments, as we’re always open to it. We know we’re not perfect, and if you have some criticism then by all means share it. If you’re new to the whole scene and don’t know what roleplaying is (welcome to the club by the way), then you may like to get a basic crash course; please see our Introductions: Crash Course in Roleplaying guide. If you wish to read a crash course on how to create your own club roleplay, then please read our Club Roleplaying and You guide which will give you a step-by-step guide on how to set everything up.
Assuming you know the basic premise of a roleplay, or you’ve read the above mentioned guide, then this guide will get you started on nearly every aspect you might be thinking about for creating your Universe, and might include some points for you to think about for your own creation.
Remember! How much detail you go into is completely up to you. We recommend keeping it concise and as simple as possible to understand, but not all roleplays can do this. Also the first post in your roleplay is a doorway into your Universe; it needs to be attractive and have links to the relevant information topics, character ID topics and out of character topics if you have any.
