February 8, 2023 00:07: Upcoming Scheduled Lockdowns

As a refresher, since the date for the last lockdown was incorrect in the list, we've gone through to make sure the rest of the dates were correct, and they are. The next lockdown will begin in just under a week, on February 13th.

As always, lockdowns are every fifth week; four weeks of Marosia, one week off.

13 Feb - 20 Feb
20 Mar - 27 Mar
24 Apr - 1 May
29 May - 5 Jun
January 27, 2023 09:06: Reminder on Rule 18

Hi guys. I would like to remind everybody of Rule 18, and in particular the limitations on roleplay for characters who are under the age of 18. Any characters under the age of 18 are not allowed to engage in relationships, flirting, or sexual roleplay of any kind - including revealing clothing or lingerie.

Staff understand that in real life it is common for teenagers to explore things, but Marosia is strictly only available to adults, and when it becomes adults roleplaying teenagers exploring their sexuality - then it becomes decidedly icky.

Please refrain from the above roleplay because even first time offenders are likely to receive a hefty suspension if not a ban.

If you witness other players breaking this rule then you must put in a report on it and stop engaging in the roleplay. We understand that it might be nerve wracking, but not putting in a report could result in your account being penalised as well.

If you have any questions about the above then please put in an in-game report or ask in the Discord.
January 24, 2023 01:28: Art Author Credit

Artists can now be credited separately from descriptions!

Enter the details in the new box beneath where you would upload the image. This will then cause a small 'i' to appear over the art which can be clicked to view the credit to the artist.

It has a 100 char limit and does not allow links or individual words over 25 chars in length. New art does not need to be uploaded to edit the credit.
January 15, 2023 17:20: AI Art Decision

Hi all. The subject of AI art has been increasingly controversial the more mainstream it has become. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the discussion within the server, which was an almost exact 50/50 split based on people who chose to contribute.

It has not been an easy decision, but we have opted to continue to allow AI art to be used within Marosia due to how difficult it would be for mods to enforce disallowing it.

I understand this is going to be disappointing to many artists within the community, so we had a talk about if there was more we could be doing to support you and have come up with some changes. Please join the Discord server for more information.

Rule 6 will also be adjusted to clearly forbid images using stolen art as a prompt for AI generators without the consent from the original artist, as well as breaches of copyright by approximation (mimicking styles, characters or content). Please do report when you come across suspicious art.
January 12, 2023 11:42: Staff Changes

Quite a few staff changes over this lockdown!

@Lonnie and @MissVal will be joining Tali and I as admins. @EmteeOh, @trina, and @Akki will be moving up as loremasters. @Syzygygy and @the are also joining us as lorelings after barely missing out last time. Congratulations to all of you and another HUGE thanks from me for all the time and energy you put into the game. It simply wouldn't be possible to keep it going otherwise.

We will also be doing another round of recruiting for mods - so have a think about if this is something you might be interested in and keep an eye open for further applications. Anybody with even a bit of time to spare, who is willing to look at the facts rather than be led by their feelings, and who has the patience to help out fellow players would be more than welcome!

The free-to-play collaborative story.

Marosia is a free text based roleplaying game. It is an RPG in a fantasy setting with open world society simulation mechanics. The player can create a character through instant spawning, or through the family system with a selection of different races. Once your character steps into the world, what you do is up to you, as the freedom to play whatever sort of character you want allows infinite possibilities.

Experience the excitement of playing out a character's entire life, and living through their moments. Understand the world around you within a text based environment, where words will sweep you into a new land of imagination and possibility. Feel the pleasures of your character's new discoveries; weapons, armor, tools, and resources are waiting to be used and created for your character's agendas.

Fall in love, start a family, raise an empire, begin a business, create a religion, discover treasure, lead a colony, create a government, plan a plot, become a thief, and change the world. It's up to you. The world is full of magic, surprises, gods, and demons. Where will your character fit within it?
