NaNoWriMo ZoneJoin my Community... NOW!Nedstat Basic - Free web site statisticsThe project "MYRA" (.myra// ?) is the idea to create one shared fantasy world together with an unlimited number of people (over 1000 up to now) over an unlimited number of years (over 20 up to now). This world is used as a background for D20 fantasy roleplaying campaigns (open gaming) both offline and diceless online. Myra-D20 modules can be published, too. It is used as the background for a plethora of stories and poems and even full-fledged printed novels are possible, will happen thanks to nanowrimo and will be published, if good enough, with royalties to the author where applicable.Check out our Frappr!

We welcome any creative talent, poets, writers, artists with anime-sketches or full-blown paintbrush pictures, drawing with pencils or using photoshop or terragen for breathtaking raytraced landscapes.

How can you contribute? You can just contribute some product of your creativity here - and it will be attributed to a certain place and time in the global frame of this fantasy world. You don't have to "dig" this world or in fact roleplaying (or complex boardgame-like Play-By-Email scenarios) or even gaming at all to contribute - just be creative and submit something that could at least *also* be set in our fantasy world.

Or you can 'adopt' a small part of this world in time and space which is and will stay yours to add to as long as that is your wish. That can be a person or group, a county or country, or even a continent. Yours to add to and moderate, with friends if you wish to do so.
If you're just looking for a background for your stories, your pictures or your D20 campaign, feel free to lurk and read and snatch -and contribute- what you like. If it doesn't work on Myra, we'll let you know.

Creative Commons - Learn more about the Copyright licenseAny submission absolutely has to be free of copyright issues by third parties and can be published by us (if no other copyright or copyleft notice is given) based on the CreativeCommons CC-license, where you will be credited, but anything you enter can and will be openly used.

The LJ-Community is not a mailing list - so we've got this as well, as an extra layer of communication with database, photos, polls, calendar and more. Feel free (but not obliged) to join there as well.
If, however, for any reason you'd prefer not to have or get a Yahoo-ID at all, you can of course still join the mailing list that Y!Group provides, with no strings attached. For the moment you won't be missing much, as all the extras on top of the mailing list have yet to be put to full use. All that would need is entering your email-adress in the "subscribe to myraworld" field and a click.
Any concerns that this might divert attention away from the LJ-community myraworld is unfounded, it will just be an extra layer of depth and an extra means for communication, in which I don't expect high mmail frequency any time soon (and if there were, there's always the daily-digest option). So if it's just the mailinglist you want to join (and I invite you to join either the group or the list), do this down here:
