Announcing the 2014 SciWorld Online Convention

Remember last year's SciWorld?Hello, role-playing and simming community!

I hope this is not a horribly late timing (yes, I know it really is though), but here it is: 2014 SciWorld Online Conventionthe convention every role-player or simmer, including you, must have visited at least once in their life! With the merge between SimEnc and RPWiki in November of 2013, this edition’s being organized by RPWiki, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be any less spectacular 🙂


2014 SciWorld has had a vote running for some weeks, and the weekend of May 1st to May 4th came out as #1 option. That means we’ve got two more weeks to go! Plenty of time, you think? No, only a quarter (6 out of 20) of the available times for events have a host yet. That means we need you, your friends and/or your role-playing colleagues to join us.

How to join

2014 SciWorld is here!I wanted to join as a host… but how? That answer is simple!

  1. Go to User:Yatalu:SciWorld on RPWiki
  2. Click “edit” (top of the page)
  3. Choose the slot you want to host your event in and replace the text by your name, community and the event you’re hosting.
  4. Click “publish” (right side)

That’s all you really need! If you did this without a Wikia account however, it’s also strongly advised to send an email at so no identities are mistaken later on.

Can’t host yourself? No problem! Just tweet, share on facebook, email all your friends, … you can even hand flyers to random strangers, I don’t care! The more the word is spread, the better!


But where is it taking place? There are two IRC channels set up for SciWorld, which will be free for random chat whenever no event is taking place. You can tune in there already to take a peek or to claim an IRC nickname, if you’d like!

Additionally, the RPWiki’s chat will also be available for free chat even when both IRC channels have ongoing events. Because this however requires a Wikia account, we have decided not to hold any events here.


Any questions left? You can email those at, tweet them to @Tsuyua, post them on my user talk page or ask them here, directly in the comments.

Looking forward to seeing you guys around! 🙂
