The world of Araevis has seen many catastrophes, but the most recent was nearly its end. The Cataclysm struck with little warning, beginning with the eruption of the monolithic volcano in the center of Secare, which triggered a chain reaction of eruptions, earthquakes, and avalanches throughout the world. The very structure of the planet was shaken to its core.
The peoples of Araevis -- the Laicar, the Velen, and the Enlil -- were led to build a stronghold in a forgotten city in the far northwest, sheltered on three sides by towering mountains. Before the end, even that bastion had suffered great damage, with parts of the mountains themselves crumbling before the onslaught. The stronghold survived, as did its refugees. Following the Cataclysm, a previously unknown race was discovered in the city beneath the stronghold: the Demvir.
Gradually the stronghold grew to become a city, and over the following centuries, the world began to recover. The face of the planet was reshaped, but not utterly destroyed. Though it did not hold the only survivors, the city was remembered for being the one bastion where peoples of all races and countries gathered together for common survival. For its part in averting their end, the city was named Terminus.
Post Terminus is a role-playing game where players create their own characters and stories within the world, and grow stronger based on those stories. Somewhere between a tabletop game, an MMO, and simple post-by-post RPing, Post Terminus was created to be a unique, original world full of possibility for people to shape their own stories as well as the world itself, and have a real impact on the fate of that world.
If you're an aspiring writer: Post Terminus is a community where you'll be able to express your creativity and draw upon the experience of a writing community that has been growing and thriving for nearly ten years.
If you're an active role-player: Post Terminus is, at the core, the same experience you've had in post-by-post or instant message roleplays, only with a stronger sense of structure. When you take action, it has an effect on the world and the people in that world. You can build lasting relationships and rivalries with your fellow players or other characters, becoming involved in their plot and weaving them into your own narrative.
If you're a gaming enthusiast: Post Terminus is built upon the fanboy and fangirl in all of us when we play a game, watch a movie, or read a book and think, "Wouldn't it be cool if..?" Maybe you want to be the hero, the wise sage, the kind healer, or even the villain. Whatever the case may be, Post Terminus was likely shaped by those same wants, and there's a whole community here of like-minded individuals.
