Roleplaying games on OngoingWorlds based in fictional TV/Movie universes

Basing a roleplaying game in an existing world from a TV or movie franchise is a great idea because it gives everyone easy access to a world they’ve already seen.

July the 1st is Moderator Appreciation Day!

July the 1st is Moderator Appreciation Day! Please let the moderator of your game know you appreciate them by sending them a message!

If you’ve never heard of moderator appreciation day, there’s an article here, and a good video with Kim from RP Repository explaining it here.

I would like to thank the moderators of OngoingWorlds for making it a creative, engaging place for many different types of roleplaying games!

If you’d like to become the moderator of your own game (of any genre), you can create a game here.

Latest sponsors

Each month, the OngoingWorlds website has hosting costs that are in part covered by our Hero Members. However, we currently don’t have enough Hero Members to cover the entire month’s hosting, so it’s always nice to receive a whole month’s hosting up front (there’s an option here).

Our latest sponsors are:

Mario Gomez aka Hextor312 and J Conrad Quinn.

Thanks very much to both!

If you’d like to donate to our ongoing costs, you could donate regularly and become an OngoingWorlds Hero Member (which shows on each of your posts), or donate for a month up front, which I’d be totally grateful for!

See our donation page here: http://www.ongoingworlds.com/blog/donate/

Become a patreon & get Hero Membership

Hero membership

You might have noticed some users on OngoingWorlds have their avatars displayed on their posts, while others don’t.

That’s because some users are Hero Members, which means they are super special and donate monthly to the upkeep of OngoingWorlds (our hosting costs money, which is paid for by members).

Displaying an avatar on a post looks something like this:

User with Hero membership

Without Hero Members donating to the monthly hosting, there wouldn’t even be an OngoingWorlds, so we should be eternally grateful to them!

Become a Hero!

You can become a Hero by donating $2 per month – You can cancel whenever you want. You’ve got 2 different options to donate:

Paypal

Click the “Subscribe” button on the Donation page. It’ll take you to a Paypal donation form with $2 pre-filled.

Patreon

Patreon is a service to allow communities like ours get paid, it’s a great option because it’s an easy way to donate, plus it’s a bit more visible and lets others know about us.

To donate through Patreon, click this link. Then click “Become a Patreon”.

The great OngoingWorlds outage of March 2019

Yesterday we had quite a large problem with the server, with the website being down for about 16 hours. This was caused by an unexpected server migration by our hosting provider, which lead to the database being out of date. I had to keep the website offline for longer than expected, to wrestle with the company’s technical support and get them to send the latest copy of the database. I wanted to make sure absolutely no data had been lost, because I know how important each and every post is to you guys!
