For anyone who's been bopping around here lately, you probably heard that I was looking to create a Brutal Legend centric roleplay forum, but didn't want to get it started until I was sure there would be people actually interested in participating.
I am exceedingly happy to announce that In The Age Of Metal
has officially gotten off the ground, and while I am still working out some bugs and getting down the hardcore basics (like the rules and character application forms), the site is now open for registration should anyone care to pop in a poke around. I also have created a dedicated tumblr
for any questions or suggestions involving the site, and I'm also using it as an update platform to document my progress on things.
Right at the moment, I'm working out how to add in a chat widget so people can get talking about possible plot and ideas as well as general meet and greet, and then I'll be focusing on getting up a 'welcome' page for first time visitors. Since Brutal Legend is a mature level game and the forum is going to continue in that vein, I've decided that it should be Adults Only, which pretty much means age of consent or older (18+). With all the swearing and gratuitous violence likely to crop up, I'd much prefer to cover my ass there cause I haven't the money for a lawsuit. I'd like the site to open with one of those pages with the 'WARNING: The following site is Adult Only' with buttons for 'I'm 18+' and 'I'm not 18+', but I have no idea how to make that work, so I'm having to fumble around (if anybody has any pointers I'd be really happy with the help, I'm using phpBB as the main forum software).
But yeah, that's the big update! Spread the word, the most heavy metal of all forum roleplays is coming soon!
