Please respect all members of board staff at all times. Also please remember to respect other players!
Long centuries ago the Gods dwelt on Earth. They commanded their mighty magics and called their chosen people to their sides, creating mighty empires that spread out across the surface of the Earth, each ruling in their own era. For awhile each of the Mighty Gods was content with their Earthly Empire, but one by one they slowly lost interest. Earth, even with it's varied peoples, simply couldn't hold their attention.

As their interest waned, one by one the Old Gods abandoned Earth and their Empires faded and crumbled leaving behind only Myth, Legend, and the ruins and artifacts that have so enriched our histories. But the Old Gods did not simply vanish into obscurity.

Each and every one of the Gods sung about in Earth's Mythologies was driven to seek out a new world, one that held the excitement they had been unable to maintain on Earth. They were successful in their search, each setting their sights on a planet that held an abundance not only of varied peoples, but of magical power as well. Each God was thrilled to find the exact object of their wildest dreams! Imagine their horror and disappointment when they realized each and every one of their fellows who had once inhabited the Earth had made the same discovery, and each and every one had the same wish; to command the full power of all the world's people and magic.

Terrible was the war they wrought upon each other, each faction set against all the others with no less than absolute victory their only goal. Alliances were made and broken. But in the end no one faction could win out above all the others. In their immortal power, the Gods found themselves equals, unable to slay the armies of their enemies, unable to claim the greatest treasure that ever they had beheld.

And so the Old Gods of Earth turned their eyes on this new planet, dividing amongst themselves the people, drawing as many as they could to their worship and rebuilding their empires of old. A new war was about to begin, fought not by the Gods themselves but by the worshipers they ensnared.

Welcome to Lands of Myth and Magic, a world of danger and excitement in which the myths of old come to life once again. Kingdoms ruled by different Gods stand on the verge of war, alliances, betrayals and secret plots run rampant. Heathens that refuse to answer to any one God roam the lands stirring up trouble. No one can be certain what the next day will bring. There is adventure to be found for any who go in search of it!
The Rules:

1) Respect! Please respect other players, please respect the Staff/GMs! Everyone is welcome in Lands of Myth and Magic. If you have an outside problem with someone I ask that you please leave it at the door when you enter. The goal here is for everyone to have FUN!

2) No Godmoding! Lands of Myth and Magic defines Godmoding as any In Character (IC) action that puts another player at an unfair disadvantage and/or seizes control of a character that does not belong to the player making the action. Only a character’s creator can declare their character dead! There will be no forced PC deaths in Lands of Myth and Magic!

3) Plagiarism will not be tolerated. All characters must be originals.

4) Please post a character bio for all characters you wish to make PCs. For more information please read the rules for character creation. Please submit your character in the folder for the section to which you wish them to belong (EG: Norse characters are submitted in the Norse section). Character bios for PCs require approval for continuous play; however, you can begin playing a character while awaiting approval (GMs will try to be prompt). Play testing of a character before writing a bio is welcome. Once a character is approved for the section to which they belong, they are not limited to play in that section only. Characters may travel between the sections. Character approval for the home section stands for all sections of play.

5) Lands of Myth and Magic has a PG 13 rating. Swearing, within moderation, is fine. Due to the PG 13 rating and the terms of service for Invision boards, scenes of sexually explicit nature are not allowed to be posted on the boards. Please use good judgment when it comes to blood and gore; if you aren't sure, post a warning as a subtitle to the thread title.

6) No Spamming and no Flooding. Only regulars have standing permission to share links.

Discipline:
I'm a big fan of the Three Strikes System when it comes to rule breaking. You will receive ONE warning only. Please be aware that the GMs of each individual section reserve the right to make decisions that will affect their section. If my name is not listed as the GM of a section, I will NOT over-rule the section GM, so don't bother asking.

Please remember to have FUN! ^_^

Songs and Sagas
The exploits of great men and women are forever remembered in the songs of skalds and in the ancient sagas. Perhaps, if you are strong enough and brave enough, your deeds will be recorded for all time as well.

The Hall of Heroes
Lo, there do I see my father, there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers,
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning,
Lo, they do call to me and bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave may live forever.

The Well of Urd
Deep under the earth, in the domain of the Norns, flows the wellspring of all life and death: the Well of Urd. It is said in the old songs that any being who drinks of its waters shall gain all the knowledge of the past, present and future. What the songs don't mention, however, is the price of such wisdom...

Epikos Mythos
Poets recite tales at the fireside and thespians dramatize story in the theater, songs of heroes and gods and monsters. Some say the only true way to immortality is through the tale. Not even the gods know who will bring about the composition of the next great epic and perhaps find their likenesses set among the stars themselves.

The Totalis Regesta
A pair of scrolls residing in Olympus itself. Every god and mortal, human and nonhuman are set down at their birth upon the first scroll and moved to the second upon death. Created and maintained by the goddess of childbirth and the god of death, the register is never truly complete.

The Templum Archivum
Immaculate, revered, sacred. All knowledge of the Hellenic past and present is gathered in the great archives. Patroned by the goddess of wisdom, many have found themselves willingly lost among the shelves. Each new ruler tends to its growth and health as they would a living being. For what is a land and people without a history?

Forgotten Tales
Those not of the Gods have few halls in which to tell their tales, and appear in few scrolls reserved for the keeping of tales of their own people. There are those, however, who bow to no God who have made names for themselves by accomplishing impossible tasks and mighty deeds. Here then, are their tales.
