Hullo, @Cystal_Dreadscope (pretty name), and WELCOME TO THE AETHERLIGHT FORUMS!!
Well, I'll do my best to help you feel a little less lost.
Can't get enough randomness or crazyness? Or have something random of your own to say? Look no further than Random Anything! (Note: DON'T read through all of it. That would take forever.)
(It's called "Version 2" because it's actually a second Random Anything topic. The first one ran out of room. It's that popular! )
If you like polls (I certainly do), then the Polls topic is the place for you! You can, obviously, vote on polls and make your own, too. (Again, don't read it all.)
As for roleplays, you're right. There are SOOOOO many amazing roleplays out there, it is hard to keep track. I'll give you a couple classics.
This here is The Elderfun Chronicles written by Jacoby Elderfun. It began pretty early on, in fact, as far as I can tell, it's one of the first roleplays ever written. And he's still writing it today! It's action-packed, creative, suspenseful and just plain EPIC.
Now for one of my personal favorites, AETHERLIGHT: Origins written by Xonos Darkgrate. Set in a time before Alexander formed the Resistance, this roleplay is teeming with drama, action, and raw AWESOMENESS. Seriously, check it out. Xonos is one of the best writers I've ever known.
The most trendy roleplay right now is probably Mountain Peak, formulated by Vytanni Throttlenight. This roleplay is about the adventures and mishaps of a sanctuary for "Wynged" people, that is, people who have sprouted wings. This is a free roleplay which means for than one person have contributed to it. (I'm one of them.) Anyway, enough talk, here is the roleplay.
If you want more roleplay ideas, or need help navigating the forums, please don't be afraid to speak up! We'd love to help. Enjoy your stay. Beware the craziness.
Please tell me this isn't another double......
