about the Diligent

introduction

What is this?

The Diligent is a text based role-playing game and collaborative writing experience, also known as a sim, simm, or simming. We're an online role-playing game in which players interact with each other and a predefined environment through text. We're a freeform game and don't follow an RPG ruleset.

Where do I begin?

First, check out our forums. Read through current posts of active members of the crew. Take a look at our mission archives to see firsthand what our posting is like. Then, if you're still interested, look through the crew manifest for an open position that interests you and start dreaming up your character. Once you're ready just fill out our application. We'll review your character and may suggest changes or for you to expand upon a couple of things, but it's a quick process!

How do we play this RPG?

As a member of the crew you'll be able to add posts to our current active mission thread. There, you'll post in story-format; that is, your writing will resemble that of a book. You'll utilize your own character and a myriad of NPC's for this, while tagging in other players to bring their own characters into the story with you. By posting back and forth in this way we're able to create deep and interesting stories from the perspective of many writers working gether in tandem.

What is Bravo Fleet?

The Diligent is part of a larger simming organization known as Bravo Fleet. Being a part of a larger fleet gives us access to a huge pool of potential members as well as a larger organized canon that we can utilize to build our own stories along with major story arcs that span across numerous other sims.
