WELCOME TO DETHRONED GODS, AN ANIMANGA MYTHOLOGY INSPIRED ROLEPLAY THAT TAKES PLACE IN THE YEAR 2017. THE SITE BEGINS WITH THE WHOLE WORLD LEFT CONFUSED BECAUSE OF THE ABRUPT DISAPPEARANCE OF 30% OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION; PRECISELY 2,250,000,000 INDIVIDUALS HAVE COMPLETELY VANISHED WITHOUT EXPLANATION. THOUGH IT MAY BE UNBEKNOWNST TO THE MASSES, THOSE 2,250,000,000 INDIVIDUALS HAVE GONE TO THE MYTHOLOGICAL REALM (WORLD OF MYTHOLOGY), A PLACE THAT HAS EXPOSED TO THEM THEIR TRUE PURPOSE AND POTENTIAL IN LIFE. HANG ON TIGHT BECAUSE IT ALL BEGINS HERE.
07/14 – AS ALWAYS I TAKE A YEAR AND A HALF TO UPDATE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT BOX WE HAVE, BUT THAT'S BESIDE THE POINT. FIRST, THE RIGHTS REVIEW IS ALMOST NEAR COMPLETION, AND AS WE DRAW CLOSER TO ITS END, THE STAFF TEAM SINCERELY HOPES THAT WE MADE MEMBERS HAPPY WITH THE NEEDED CHANGES. SECOND, A SITE-WIDE EVENT IS IN THE WORKS AND MAY TAKE A LITTLE TIME TO BE ESTABLISHED FULLY. THOUGH, THIS DOESN'T MEAN A FEW CONTESTS OR MINI-EVENTS (OOC/IC) WON'T BE POPPING UP SHORTLY. AND LASTLY, WE HAVE SEEN SOME NEW FACES AND WOULD LOVE TO WELCOME YOU ALL TO THIS CRAZY SITE!
Skin specially made by VON for LORE. Dethroned Gods is an original roleplay which has been inspired by Mythology itself.

WELCOME FRIEND! TRUE TO ITS NAME, THE BEGINNER'S GUIDE BOARD CONTAINS EVERYTHING A NEW MEMBER NEEDS TO JOIN AND ROLEPLAY ON THE SITE. HERE, YOU'LL FIND THE RULES, HOW TO JOIN, AND INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE SITE'S PLOT, REALM, AND SYSTEMS. PLEASE READ THROUGH EVERYTHING CAREFULLY TO AVOID CREATING ADDITIONAL WORK FOR THE STAFF. THAT SAID, ENJOY! WE LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING YOU.
Important and noteworthy announcements regarding to the site shall be found here. Normally announcements range from monthly activity checks to new site contests. Either way, the board is designed to keep members in the loop at all times. Please make sure to take the time to check up on this board, you might end up missing something significant if you don't.
This board is dedicated to members and providing them with any help they may require. If you would like to give site feedback, get assistance with graphics, or move an old thread to the archives area, this is the area for it all. Both established members and staff themselves will help you if any questions arise.
A SITE IS NOTHING WITHOUT ITS COMMUNITY. THE COMMUNITY BOARD IS AN AREA WHERE MEMBERS CAN INTRODUCE THEMSELVES TO EVERYONE, NOTIFY THEIR FELLOW ROLEPLAYERS OF ABSENCES OR DEPARTURES, DISPLAY THEIR ARTISTIC SKILLS OR CODING SKILLS, AND PLAY OOC/IC GAMES WITH ONE ANOTHER.
WE'RE GLAD THAT YOU HAVE DECIDED TO CREATE A CHARACTER THAT WILL ENTER THIS CRAZY WORLD OF MYTHOLOGY. HOWEVER, BEFORE MAKING YOUR INTERESTING AND DYNAMIC DEMI-GOD, PLEASE TAKE TIME TO READ THE APPLICATION GUIDE. BY TAKING THE TIME TO DO SUCH, YOU NOT ONLY HELP THE STAFF OUT, BUT ALSO AID YOURSELF IN GETTING APPROVED IN A TIMELY FASHION BY AVOIDING COMMON MISTAKES.
ALL APPROVED DEMI-GODS THAT ARE READY TO STEP INTO THE WORLD OF MYTHOLOGY ARE LOCATED HERE. IF YOUR APPLICATION IS HERE, YOU ARE FREE TO ROLEPLAY ON THE SITE. HOWEVER, BEFORE DOING SO, WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU TAKE THE TIME TO CREATE A PLOT PAGE. APPLICATIONS ARE NOT LOCKED SO YOU CAN MAKE MINOR EDITS, BUT NOT YOUR FACE-CLAIM OR GOD-PARENT.
THE INVENTORY BOARD HELPS MEMBERS KEEP TRACK OF EACH OF THEIR CHARACTERS' RIGHTS, WEAPONS, AND MYTHICAL BEASTS. MEMBERS ARE EXPECTED TO POST AN INITIAL THREAD FOR EACH CHARACTER BEFORE POSTING IN THE INVENTORY NOTIFICATION THREAD. STAFF WILL THEN CLOSE IT AND EDIT IT FROM THAT POINT FORWARD TO REFLECT THE CONTENTS OF THE CHARACTER'S INVENTORY AS ITEMS, BEASTS, AND RIGHTS ARE GAINED AND LEVELED.
PLOTTING WITH YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS IS ESSENTIAL TO MAKING YOUR STAY HERE A FUN ONE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE UNIQUE IDEAS THAT YOU FEEL COULD BOOST THE OVERALL ENJOYMENT OF THE SITE. THIS BOARD WAS CREATED TO GIVE YOU A PLATFORM WHERE YOU CAN CREATE A PLOT PAGE, WANTED AD, THREAD TRACKER, DEVELOPMENT BOARD, AND ETC. ALL THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO TRULY EXPRESS YOUR IDEAS FREELY.
A DEVELOPMENT BOARD SERVES AS AN AREA WHERE MEMBERS CAN POST WHATEVER THEY WANT FOR THEIR CHARACTERS: PERSONAL CODES, THREAD TRACKERS, PLAYLISTS, IN-CHARACTER JOURNAL ENTRIES, GIFS, RANDOM FACTS, AND SO MUCH MORE. JUST POST IN THE DEVELOPMENT SIGN UP TO GET YOUR OWN.
Communication threads are essential to creating plots that can truly blossom. Established as an in-character board, members can create threads where their characters are texting, calling, video calling, and etc. between one another. Members can rapid-fire their threads without worrying. Please remember, this board is in-character so anything discussed will now be considered canon.
Expeditions play a significant role in the site’s plot and opening of new worlds. By participating and completing each new expedition created; a new board will be opened to the masses. Expeditions can only be created by staff; however, this does not take away from the importance and fun that these threads can be. Similar to the announcements, keep an eye open for this board.
MISSIONS ARE A GREAT WAY OF HAVING YOUR CHARACTERS PARTICIPATE IN PUSHING FORWARD THE SITE'S PLOT. PARTAKING IN A MISSION WILL NOT ONLY EARN YOUR CHARACTER COINS, BUT IT'LL ALSO GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO MEET AND COLLABORATE WITH OTHER DEMIGODS. PLOT OPPORTUNITIES, ANYONE? MAKE SURE TO CHECK BACK EVERY SO OFTEN FOR NEW LISTINGS.
All demi-gods will appear here when arriving at the Mythological Realm. The Pantheon is a large marble structure designed to house and provide for the 30%. Noritaka and Iseret created the structure with the intent of providing for the demi-gods; food, water, clothes, and etc. Outside of the demi-gods and the council, Jinns can be seen walking about ensuring that all household tasks are being attended to (cleaning, washing, serving food, and etc).
STEPPING OUTSIDE THE PANTHEON WILL REVEAL AN EVERLASTING FIELD OF GRASS THAT DOESN'T CRUSH BENEATH ONE'S FEET. WITH THE COUNCIL TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION THAT THE DEMI-GODS MAY WANT TO STRETCH THEIR FEET OUTSIDE OF THE PANTHEON; THE DECISION OF CREATING THE GROUNDS CAME ABOUT. THE FIELD OF GRASS IS SEEMINGLY ENDLESS, EVEN THOSE SECTIONS THAT LEAD TO OTHER PARTS OF THE LARGE AREA STRETCH FAR INTO THE HORIZON.
EBRAXAS IS A DIVERSE AND POPULOUS METROPOLIS. AT THE HEART OF THE CITY LIES PLAZA DEL MONDE, THE ECONOMIC CENTER AROUND WHICH THE CITY WAS BUILT. TO THE NORTH, PAST BLOCKS OF INCREASINGLY LUXURIOUS BOUTIQUES, IS CLEARVIEW, WHERE THE RICH WINE AND DINE AMONGST THEMSELVES. THE ENTIRE EAST SECTOR OF EBRAXAS WAS AT ONE POINT SWALLOWED UP BY RISING TIDES; AS SUCH, THIS WATERY DISTRICT HAS BEEN CLAIMED BY THE MERPEOPLE AND DUBBED THE MIRIN QUARTER. AS ONE TRAVELS OUTWARD FROM THE PLAZA EITHER SOUTH OR WEST, BUILDINGS BECOME PROGRESSIVELY SHABBIER. WHILE NOT MARKED BY A CLEAR BOUNDARY, THE SLICE OF CITY AT THE OUTER SOUTHWESTERN FRINGES OF EBRAXAS IS KNOWN AS CRESTFALL - 'WHERE THE POOR COME TO SUFFER AND CRIMINALS COME TO GO UNDER,' OR SO THE SAYING GOES.
"Axis Mundi, the Connection between Heaven & Hell," is a bustling city which serves as a place for all mythological entities to gather peacefully. At every corner, a tree can be seen planted near a shop or in the middle of the square. The city is full to brim with shops, inns, bars, restaurants, parks, and etc. It's the closest thing to what a mortal may call "the city" in the Human Realm. Nevertheless, though quite populated with all types of stable mythological creatures, Axis Mundi is mainly run by the Ratatoskr who own 98% of the businesses.
"NIFLHEIM, THE ABODE OF MIST" ONCE LOST TO BEASTS AND HORRIFIC WEATHER, THE DEMIGODS HAVE CLEARED THE WAY AND THE LAND IS NOW MOSTLY STABLE. THERE EXISTS A MASSIVE, CIRCULAR CITY AT THE CORE OF THE LAND, BORDERED BY A CRESCENT SHAPED LAKE. SNOW STILL FALLS CONSISTENTLY OUTSIDE OF THE CITY WALLS BUT WITHIN, THE TEMPERATURE IS MUCH MORE TOLERABLE. BEYOND SNOWHAVEN, THE ARCTIC CLIMATE STRETCHES INTO INFINITY, SO BE CAREFUL NOT TO WANDER TOO FAR FROM CIVILIZATION.
"THEMISCYRA, HOME OF THE AMAZONS," OR "THEMISCYRA, PARADISE ISLAND" NO LONGER SEEMS LIKE PARADISE. LOCATED ON THE FAR LEFT OF THE SMALL ISLE AND THROUGH ITS DENSE FOREST, ONE WOULD DISCOVER "THEMISCYRA." CONTRARY TO BELIEF, THEMISCYRA IS NOT THE ISLAND ITSELF, BUT A SPECIFIC LOCATION ON THE ISLAND. NONETHELESS, WHEN SEARCHING FOR SAID LOCATION, NUMEROUS MARBLE STRUCTURES INFLUENCED BY GREEK MYTHOLOGY CAN BE ENCOUNTERED ALONG THE WAY. THE "ISLAND" IS KNOWN FOR HOUSING ONLY FEMALES. [DEATH-ENABLED]
"Atlantis, The sunken city." Hidden at the deepest part of the grand ocean that connects all realms lies the remains of a once thriving metropolis. Gone are its shining walls and powerful warding technology, stripped away when the gods vanished. The dark waters rushed in and all manner of aquatic creature has made the ruins their home. Even watery denizens were forced to flee, so terrible were the monsters and poison. To venture to Atlantis is to welcome an unforgiving death.
"EL DORADO, THE CITY OF GOLD" IS EXACTLY THAT— A CITY COMPLETELY MADE UP OF GOLD. HALF OF THE CITY IS SUBMERGED IN WATER WHICH HAS A CURRENT THAT IS CONTINUOUSLY EBBING AND FLOWING; THE OTHER HALF IS EXCEEDINGLY INFESTED BY MYTHOLOGICAL CREATURES. STRUCTURES ARE STILL ACCESSIBLE; HOWEVER, THE RISKS OF BEING ATTACKED BY THE UNKNOWN ARE EXTREMELY HIGH IN AN AREA LIKE THIS. MOST OF THE TIME, ONE MUST HAVE A BOAT AND A PADDLE TO TRAVEL THROUGHOUT THE CITY. ALTHOUGH, THE OPTION OF SWIMMING IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO THOSE BOLD ENOUGH TO CHANCE IT. [DEATH-ENABLED]
Maybe you want to go back in time, fast-forward to an even further future, or role-play out a universe different from the site’s setting? The alternate universe board is where that can happen; a board that welcomes writers to scratch that “different setting/timeline itch" that has been getting to them for quite some time. Threads placed in this area do not affect the setting of the site, nor are they viewed as canon.
Threads that have gone inactive— no matter the type will be placed in this board. Dead threads are organized based on their type (applications, plot pages, and etc.), making it quite easy to find a thread placed in this area. If for some valid reason you may want a thread to be moved out of the archives, take the time to send a staff member a private message so they can place it back in its respective board.
