If you enjoy the bizzare, the twisted, and the unexpected, I invite you to join kronosphere.

Could you . . . elaborate?

Well, I don't want to spoil the fun, but I can tell you any class/race is allowed. Also, it is going to start off like an average/normal D&D campaign and then... Well, things are just going to get wierd. LOL

Well, I've gleaned that this community involves a roleplay, I assume of the play-by-post type. This is information that would've been useful to start.

What I'm saying is I, and I suspect others, are going to need a little more information to be sold on this. What is my incentive to check it out? I really don't know. Lots of D&D games are weird, D&D's a little weird by its nature. It feels like it's all supposed to be a big surprise to know what you're even talking about.

BWAHAH! Ok... First off, I am not trying to 'sell' anyone on anything. If what I said intrigues you, by all means, join! If not, this campaign is not for you. That said, I will give part of the write up I did for people on my own friends list below. Part of the plot is that the characters are in the dark. Giving anymore away will be spoiling all the fun. BTW, we currently have 3 members.

"It is going to be very strange, with a very odd storyline, strange monsters and odd races, and it will mix a lot of fantasy and sci-fi with a smattering of horror elements. It already has 2 members, but I will take up to 8. Anyone on my friends list who is interested is invited, but it is first come first serve."

By inviting others to join, you are selling it. I don't need to hear all about the plot, but you could at least mention that it would be a PBP game with six open slots, might have a bit of an untraditional bent and would be using 3.5 rules. As if stands you might as well have been offering me a chance for a free iPod. Details aren't necessary, but nouns are helpful.

I didn't answer it that way because you didn't ask for that specific information. Maybe I am being overly technical, sorry, I'm not trying to start any arguements.

I guess all I am trying to say is that if it sounds interesting to you, you really have nothing to lose. Join the community, and if you don't like what you see, leave. No harm done. We aren't starting until we either have 8 PC's or Monday (whichever ends up coming first) anyway. =)

Agreed. You don't need an explanation of the plot. You need an explanation of the style. (eg: Game setting: medieval fantasy, high magic, futuristic, combination of the previously mentioned; Playing style: run by a DM or a story run by everyone involved; as Nviiibrown said, what kind of rules are you using? Time: How often will people suppose to post, is there a minimum on how long posts should be, what requirements will be enforced so that people know how serious or laid-back your game is; etc)

Well, since you put it that way... *grinz*

The setting is a combo of fantasy, sci-fi, and horror, run by a DM (me), we are using D&D 3.5e, and I expect at least 1 post/day (although depending on circumstances (such as holidays) there may be none or (in the case of everyone being at the computer at the same time) a whole session/day.

Posts can be of any length so long as they are coherent, and are placed behind an Lj-cut if more than a paragraph or so.

I am not big on rules. My players have a lot of freedom. The mood is fairly laid back. The only way I am going to get on someones ass is if they are repeatedly being an idiot (urinating on the altar of a powerful god, swimming in a pool of acid, etc.), or are disrupting the flow of the game (posting SPAM, repeatedly arguing with me over interpretation of minor rules, etc).

Of coarse, most of that was already clearly stated in my other posts... =)

Not really. ^.^; "a lot of fantasy and sci-fi with a smattering of horror" and "D&D" doesn't really explain anything other than barely a general theme and that it's not Whitewolf. ^.~ Besides, in general, most people will not search through multiple posts for information. Better off just editing your initial entry.

Well, that and the rules version is right there in the community profile. How many times do I have to post something? If someone can't read, that is their problem not mine. Anyway, it's not worth arguing about.

For future recommendation, it's generally common courtesy if you post the information in your posts letting people know about your group instead of making people look through your own site (no matter how large or small it is). The general conception is that if you don't take time/effort to make a description, why should people put in time/effort in looking for the information themselves. You will lure more people who may actually may be interested, because the information will be right there and easy to find. Less of a chance that an individual will pass it up due to lack of information. Understand where I'm coming from, at least from the reader's point of view?

As to how many times do you need to post something? Actually it's rather simple. Just type up a description in Word or whatever typing program you may have, save the file, and cut and paste it when you want to post somewhere letting people know about your group. (Just remember to Lj cut if it gets lengthy.)

Alright, you have a point. =)
