Nothing is too silly; we want you guys to be able to feel comfortable here at DF. So if something is puzzling you please let us know by commenting on the FAQ.

 

We hope the FAQ is useful and helps shed some light on the inner works on DF.

Mini RPGs!

Announcements and Updates 09 Apr 2014

Mini RPGs are now open!

The past few months the staff have been reviewing our RP realm here at DF and put into action some major changes to it. Namely, we've removed RP events and added Mini-RPGs. While we loved the idea of RP Events they were not working as well as intended and we realised we wanted to do more with the RP Realm.

 

What are Mini-RPGs?

 

A Mini-RPG is a RPG a fully fledged RP forum right here on DF. It's a great way to play an RP idea out or reopen a past game without the hassle of putting a full sized site together. There is no restriction on maturity or type of RP but there are a few things required to get them setup. You'll have your own sub-forum and moderating privileges, as well as control over every aspect of the game.
 
To create a Mini-RPG we have set up a petition process; complete a form and meet the requirements and voilà you have your Mini-RPG!

 

The requirements are:

  • Two completed threads in the setting with 5 posts each.
  • 2 people willing to join in the game and sign the petition.

 

You can read more about Mini-RPGs and find out all the details about applying for one in this topic.

 

We've also added OOC Planning sub-forums to each RP category a sub-forum for listing thread trackers, templates and the like.

 

We hope you find these new additions useful but most of all have fun! The staff can't wait to see what you guys come up with :)

Help make DF a community for all roleplayers

Announcements and Updates 09 Jan 2014

A Community for All

It has always been my desire to have DF open to all formats of online role play and all genres. The world of role playing online is massive and you can find rpg resources in all formats. While we are a forum, we want to help spread the word that DF isn't just for forum rpgs. We want to encourage role players form other formats and in other languages to connect with each other, using DF as a conduit.

 

How can you help?

There are several different ways to help with this mission.

 

1. Do you rp outside of forums and/or the popular forum hosts (jcink, invisionfree, proboards etc.)?

  • We want you to help us spread the word that DF isn't cliquey or just for certain hosts or formats.
  • We would also love for you to help us put together guides for other formats, such as journal based rpgs, twitter, chat, play by email and so forth.
  • Tell us what we're missing! Do you use particular resources? Let us know!
  • Share resources for particular hosts and fandoms.

2. Is English your second language?

  • Help us write messages in other languages so we can approach non-english rpgs.

 

 

Banners

Here are some banners and adverts you can use to help highlight the idea of an rpg community for everyone.

Growing pains

Announcements and Updates 13 Mar 2014

Growing Pains

Hey everyone,

Sorry about all the issues. I'm still working out the kinks in the server configuration. Shouldn't be much longer before it's all fixed. I'm working with my host to get it optimized.

Thank you for your patience.

It was a lot faster then I'd even imagined. While there still may be DNS issues for the next few days, the site you are seeing is the correct one and you are free to post again as normal.

 

Any login or other issues please clear your cached files and cookies before posting in the Staff Contact Forum.

 

Thanks for your patience and understanding!

Server Downtime 3/9/14

Announcements and Updates 10 Mar 2014

Server Downtime 3/9/14

Hey everyone. I apologize for the down time yesterday. There is a long story that I won't bore you with but this is why we are moving. This down time will be moving up my time line for all of this.

 

Apologies, we will be up on our new server by the end of the week.

Server Move

Announcements and Updates 09 Mar 2014

Changing Hosts

As some have noticed the current host that DF is on is unstable and goes down rather randomly for 5-10 minutes. While it's up it runs just fine but after trying to resolve issues we have given up on trying to fix a problem that they can't even find.

 

That being said DF will be moving to a new host in the next week.

 

We appreciate your understanding.

 

What does this mean?

It means that when the new server is up all sites that are on Morrgasm hosting will be going down for about 3-4 days while we transfer the domains and current information to the new host. During this period we will be shutting DF offline so that we don't lose any of your content.

 

There will only be a short warning before we start this process as we want to mitigate down time to as short as possible.

 

Anything I should know?

Login issues may return so it would be advisable that if you get to the new host and you aren't able to login, to clear your cached files and cookies.

 

Is this better?

Absolutely! Morrgasm will be moving to a dedicated server instead of a VPS, this means we aren't sharing anymore. This also means increased server capacity (Hard drive, RAM, bandwidth and CPU usage). All around this will be the best.

 

Only downfall is that it means the server is more expensive so any help that you can provide by donating is always welcome but necessary.

 

Will I get updates?

You will get updates from my Twitter @CaptainMorrigan or the DF Community Twitter @DFantasies_Com

New Feature: Buddy System & Character Exchange

Announcements and Updates 09 Mar 2014

Announcement

Distant Fantasies is proud to reveal two new databases! Roleplayers can now submit themselves to the DF Buddy System, but that is not all - you can also use our unique Character Exchange!




The Buddy System

As a directory and resource site we feel it is important to offer services that cover as many things involved in roleplaying as possible. Thus we present to you our revamped Buddy System! This is a database, but instead of listing your site, you list yourself! Sometimes we are not always looking for games, but rather people to RP with. Maybe you want something 1x1 and/or over email or google drive? Well, this is the directory for you then? Simply list yourself and also browse through the other listings. You can be as detailed or brief as you like, the form is flexible.



Character Exchange


In addition to the Buddy System we have developed something unique to Distant Fantasies, the Character Exchange! This initiative has taken "wanted roles" and advertising to a new level. The Exchange is a service where you offer a wanted character or role for another player to claim and play for you and in return you play a character for them. This is like for like, and a fair system, but the terms are between the members involved in the Exchange. Basically, it is an excellent way to network, meet new people and make new friends and expand into a new game by taking a role that is already tied to plots. You will also have someone to play with instantly and whose characters will more than likely be linked to your own. So, rather than simply posting a topic where you state what you want people to play, you also make an offer to play something for them.
