Introduction to P2TM RP
Author Credit: Sentinel XV, Euroslavia | Some Sections Taken From: Welcome to Portal to the Multiverse
Back To Top


The Creation of P2TM
After some discussion in the background between moderators, Max, and [violet], there was a decision to create a new RP forum for ones that were being placed into Forum 7. The amount of RP's there was severely underestimated and has grown into what we believe to be a community that deserves it's own forum. And so, lo' and behold, we were granted Portal to the Multiverse. The name itself was suggested by Reploid Productions, the creator of the original Forum 7. This is our new home.


P2TM Overview
Every RP thread that doesn't involve your own NS nation belongs here. As with the other forums, the same etiquette and rules apply here. Moderators themselves do not get involved in policing roleplay. Thread ownership applies here. If there's someone you don't want to be involved in your RP, you may ask them to leave or ask the mods to remove their posts if they refuse your initial attempt to tell them to stop. One of the main reasons for the split from F7 is that P2TM does not have an auto-prune, meaning that your roleplays are safe from being deleted due to inactivity.


P2TM, A World of Opportunities
Or: What To Do In P2TM?
The sky is truly the limit for P2TM. Roleplay has many facets, and with literally no restrictions placed upon content (other than subjects which might violate the Rules) the possibilities are bounded only by your own imagination. Do you want to create an RP in which an amalgam universe meshes together other fictional universes? You can do that here. Do you want to create a character-driven sports RP? You can do that here. Do you want to make a superhero RP? You can do that here. So go out, have fun, and always remember to bring your towel.

Introduction to P2TM Roleplaying Threads
Author Credit: Transnapastain | Taken From: A Hitchhiker's Guide to F7
Back To Top


Roleplaying threads operate in much the same way here as they do in International Incidents and NationStates. Where Portal To The Multiverse (P2TM) Roleplay differentiates itself is that these threads do not directly involve your nation. RPs in P2TM tend to move beyond the game of NationStates and back into the real world, or shoot further into the realms of fantasy. Common themes include alternate history, various war reenactments and spin offs, franchise based RPs (such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, etc.), fantasy and sci-fi, and Zombies, just to name a few. In truth, your imagination is the limit, as far as RP topics and content goes.

Threads tend to be divided into the categories of “out of character” interest threads and sign-ups, and “in character” story threads. The difference is easy to tell. Just like on NS or II, “out of character” threads will generally be denoted with the (OOC) tags in the title, with “in character” threads will sport the (IC) tags. Remember that thread ownership does apply to roleplays, and that, if the original poster (OP) asks you to stop posting in his/her thread, it's advisable (read: mandatory) that you heed that request, regardless of the reason, or lack thereof, and quietly leave, dignity intact. The only thing worse than a dingbat domineering a thread is two dingbats fighting in a thread.

If a roleplay thread interests you, and the IC thread proclaims it an “open” RP, in general, you can feel free to post relevant content in that thread. As with II and NS, one line posts with little to no detail or description are frowned upon. If the thread is closed, seek out its OOC counterpart, or, failing that, telegram the OP. Please do not post in the thread until speaking with the creator, that's just common courtesy

Remember, roleplaying is about telling a story, not idly chatting with friends. Threads that involve only idle banter amongst the players may be subject to closure, and we don’t want that, do we?

Past roleplay examples:


Have a great idea for a roleplay?

Post it! Outline your idea in an OOC thread and what you expect from payers joining, and see if anyone is interested. Please refrain from unwarranted or repeated “bumping” of posts, it looks tackier than an emo Hallmark card. Trust me when I say, if people are attracted to the idea, they’ll post. If your idea flops, don’t be discouraged! Not every idea is a winner, but, in general, the P2TM RPing crowd is diverse enough that nearly any idea will find a fan or two. And, hey, maybe it just wasn't the right time for your Magnum Opus. Let is simmer, let it grow, bring some friends along, and try again in a few months. It might be better for it!

P2TM FAQ
Author Credit: Sentinel XV
Back To Top


What are the rules of P2TM?
All of the normal rules of NationStates (as found in the One Stop Rules Shop) apply in the Portal to the Multiverse. There really aren't any other concrete rules for P2TM, other than limiting posted threads solely to OOC or IC threads. There are a few other unwritten rules, though, namely: don't be a dick, try your best to use proper grammar/spelling, and have fun.


How do I come up with an idea for an RP?
Anything that has ever interested you can be fuel for an RP. Say you like dinosaurs: why not make an RP about dinosaurs? There's really no limit on what you can do and what you can make in P2TM, and chances are that others will share your interests. Additionally, you might check out the Roleplay Resources section for information and ideas.


Why won't people join my RP?
Maybe there's not enough interest in the topic. Maybe they're too busy with others RPs. Maybe they don't like the style (character vs. nation, etc). Maybe they just don't plain like you. There are a plethora of reasons that some RPs flunk and others soar, but remember to not take things too seriously: just because your wonderful RP idea didn't make it off the ground doesn't mean that people don't like you, and it doesn't mean that you're terrible at creating RPs.


What sort of thread goes in P2TM?
Any and all threads that are roleplay threads (both their OOC and IC aspects) that do not explicitly deal with your NationStates nation. For example, an RP about Nazi Space Dinosaurs would belong in P2MG, while a thread about a summit conference of NS Nations would not.


Why was P2TM split from F7?
I quote Euroslavia on this:
Euroslavia wrote:After some discussion in the background between moderators, Max, and [violet], there was a decision to create a new RP forum for ones that were being placed into Forum 7. The amount of RP's there were severely underestimated and has grown into what we believe to be a community that deserves it's own forum.


How do I get my RP selected as the "Roleplay of the Week"?
The Roleplay of the Week is "featured content". Essentially, you submit your RP by posting your intentions, and your RP will be added to a numbered list. A random number generator will be used to produce a number, and the RP with that number will be selected as the "Roleplay of the Week". There is no secret method to becoming the Roleplay of the Week short of somehow manipulating the random number generator, and good luck trying to do that.

Roleplay Resources

Back To Top


Below are resources for you to use in crafting a lore- or canon-based RP's. While it is not necessary to use these, if you are planning on making an RP set in a particular fantasy universe it would be wise to make sure that the information, technology, species, and cultures that are present in your RP are concurrent with those in the fantasy universe you chose.


Real World resources:

Encyclopedia of Nations
The World Factbook

This is an excellent resource, but, as expected for what you yourself call a placeholder, is somewhat light.

A few suggestions:
Merge the Marvel and Superpower sections of Roleplay resources.
Add links to DC Comics Wiki and the Wikipedia list of superpowers, which I always find useful in picking superpowers.

Link to either this guid or this one in the Roleplay Etiquette section, at least until a P2TM User Written version is ready to go there.

Just a note, Skyrim is a game/chapter in the Elder scrolls and it's also a province of the fictional continent of Tamriel. Due to this I suggest you either put Skyrim in brackets (and thus also add Oblivion and Morrowind) or remove it from the title. Additionally your second link directs viewers directly to the Skyrim Page. This is a link to the wiki in General. This is another great wiki I suggest you add.


Overall good job, I suggest you look to the many guides and stickies in II for inspiration.

@Sentinel XV: I'm honored to have Convergence listed as an RP example, for what it's worth. Might I ask, what gave you the idea to use it for an example?
The Ascendancy of Cártána
Any and all dates I use in MT and PMT RPs on the Diplomacy forums are on the Cártányne calendar. See this factbook for details.
I return at long last to P2TM: At the Gates of Elysium, the first part of a new planned series titled The Elysium Variations developed in collaboration with Zarkenis Ultima & Sovreignry, is open now!

It came to mind when I was thinking of RP's, and the whole "amalgam universe" topic is a popular one for RP's.

[spoiler=About Me]Based on the United Kingdom, but enlarged version with alternate history.
On IIWiki
I have multiple puppets here; only a select few are used to represent the continent of Astholm; others used represent Westholme, and do not artificially boost my nation's statistics.Previously i used puppets with nation names that did not identify as Astholm (e.g. Australis Australia; now all new puppets use ASTHLM, NORTHLM, SOUTHLM, WESTHLM (HLM denoting The Holmes.
NOTE: Other uses of Astholm here have a different continuity and refer to work created by the user Astholm, not the nation

If the RP calls for it, yes. You could find an alternate-history Earth RP to join, or you could create your own.
