The Tragalbury A place of dreams and fantasy, a realm of community and open doors of opportunity for all manner and form of excitement, fun and joy. Welcome to the Tragalbury - the Non-Star Wars Role Playing Forum's very own, very first social community centre! Here we welcome you, as people--members of the Role Playing Forums--and as players--through the many characters that you create. That's right, the Tragalbury welcomes you all, with your aliases and alter-egos and socks and puppets. Established at the dawn of this great forum's creation, the Tragalbury boasts some of the finest amenities and accomodations this side of the known universe and beyond. This tremendous estate is comprised not only of a funky, brand-spanking-new nightclub, with an open dancefloor, three bars, and an underground gaming room; several balcony levels, lounge areas and separate themed rooms, all with comfortable seating; and, several swimming pools, with adjacent spas and open fountains. Freedom and security are never an issue in the Tragalbury. All are welcome; checks for weapons, poisons and other items of contraband are conducted well before entry. Security staff are polite, prompt and vigilant. Staff are well-versed in biological and electronic agents of chaos, harm and destruction, particularly those tending the alien bars, and those employed as keepers of the peace. [hr] Method of Participation Since members are encouraged to participate through their characters, any posting within the Tragalbury would be conducted through original characters. Posts should be clearly distinguished between in- and out-of-character actions. And, while this is not a formal role-playing game, the opening post and set of guidelines are enforceable by Tragalbury staff. More formal than a social thread, and incporporating heavy use of role playing skill and technique, the Tragalbury is intended to act as a social centre for all interested members of the forum to visit and contribute to, as they would any other social or community thread, or game. [hr] The Opening A smartly dressed man announces the opening of the mysterious, yet terribly promising Tragalbury for all to enter. Drinks are free on opening night, and special performances from some of the universe's greatest magicians and musicians have been arranged. So, what're you waiting for? Come on in! Remember to leave your weapons and poisons at home. Danger and excitement enough will find you once you're inside; you'll never want to leave.
