    Upcoming RP's just waiting for you!



    The apocalypse was dubbed “World War Z". Rumours of survivors have reached your safehouse or camp. You have volunteered to be trained to be part of a group that will specialize in planting new colonies and strengthening (and innoculating) existing ones that have escaped the zombies so far. The assignment is potentially fatal - there are also rumors that some zombies are attacking even inoculated survivors. But the colonists must be saved if the planet is to recover. Good luck.

    Hall of Fame Spotlight
    by G

    The hallways were filled with the distant echo of lazy footsteps. A teenager was roaming down them with his hands slid into the leather pocket of his dark jacket. His eyes looked through the dark shades in curiosity as he took in the tiles of the ground and the odd silence that surrounded him. This was such an enormous school, but where were the other students?
    Blake let a small sigh escape him as he came to a full stop in the middle of a hallway. Maybe if he just paused there for a minute then he would be able to hear something interesting. Like rats singing opera? He thought to himself with a chuckle. No, rats didn't sing. Silly him. It was even more unnerving for him to think that if rats had gotten inside of this school then that meant they would have found a way in. A way in, meant a way out. Or did it?
    When they woke up this morning, Blake and the other students of Orchara Highschool are ready for another average day... but what they are about to experience is far from mundane. When the faculty disappear without a trace, and the students find themselves trapped inside their school, who will buckle under the pressure... and who will have what it takes to survive? This beginning chapter of the multi-part series Gm'd by Peacedoom promises excitement, mystery and mayhem...

    so Don't Count Yourself Out.

    And back in school we are gang, reporting in from Travincal: The RPA University!

    This time we are heading for the Inn The Tavern: The Character Interaction guide. You are to be instructed by the lovely Mysteria & G into the basic steps of creating situations.

    You are to be joined into a place where mistakes are allowed, and any kind of interactions are okay to go (unless the RPA rules say otherwise). This section is set up to help those just starting out in roleplaying to learn how to play in a more relaxed setting.

    The setting is a never changing place, where the characters are design to come and go as they please, while being treated by the kind druidess Ta`Khara Vantagi and Jesabelle Raine, Tavern co-owner.

    So join and learn more about these two and maybe other players as well, for The Tavern is a place where people of all worlds, races, and creeds meet up to chill, hang out, rest awhile, learn from one another and revel in the usually peaceful and awesome nature of those whom grace this place with their presence.

    Not only will you enjoy your time, you might even learn and grow a bit along the way.

    In this new segment of the Tribune, I will be sharing some of my favorite signatures made this month by the lovely Request Shop Row artists! Thank you artists for putting so much work and effort into making beautiful sets for our members. While each set is special and beautiful, these were some of the signatures that stood out this month.

    Recipe time!!

    Presenting Kris's Nutella Mug Cake



    Well, we don't always have time to make fancy stuff that requires us to spend much time at the kitchen. Because of that I decided to look for something sweet and easy

    I tried it at home and it was delicious!!!


    INGREDIENTS
    4 tablespoons self-rising flour
    4 tablespoons sugar
    1 egg
    3 tablespoons cocoa powder
    3 tablespoons Nutella
    3 tablespoons milk
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil (not a must. I was fine without using it)


    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Combine all ingredients in a large coffee mug.
    2. Whisk well with a fork until smooth.
    3. Microwave on high for 1˝– 3 minutes. (Time depends on microwave)
    4. Top Mug Cakes with whipped cream and a little chocolate sauce, if desired. (I used cup of Ice-cream).
