Like many things, Iwaku needs regular updates in order to function properly and be its best. As part of the ongoing work to keep Iwaku running smoothly (as well as the neverending hunting of bugs), the site is going to need to be taken down to have some updates run. This will hopefully jumpstart anything that should have been working but was being a little strange, as well as maintain everything else.

This isn't a massive update like the one done in September but it is badly needed and while the initial projection for the timeframe to do the update is measured in hours, things always crop up and take longer than expected. On that note, we're going to estimate nearly an entire day for the update to be run and if we finish early, lovely! If not, at least we planned ahead with the time and nobody made hot roleplay plans that they can't fulfill.

As usual, during updates the Discord server will still be active and those not assisting in updating the site will be around helping to entertain and supervise what is typically an increased number of active members on the server. If you're unfamiliar with Iwaku's Discord but want in on the action, take a peek here to prepare for Update Day.

The projected downtime for the site will be from 16:00 UTC (or 11:00 CDT) May 13, 2019 to 00:00 May 14, 2019 (or 19:00 CDT May 13, 2019).

Thanks in advance for being good while we give Iwaku a facelift and if you have any questions, let us know!

On the aggressive side, but I prefer to write with players who are also aggressive.

Hard sci-fi I guess. Anything very combat oriented. Less interested in strict modern role-plays with some exceptions.

WOW!! I missed the withdrawal symptoms!! Not sure a ER visit and a fall in the driveway ... in the rain ... in 37 degree windy conditions is the best way to go about that but hey...it worked!!

I play what's needed, but I do like to take the lead. In my one-on-ones, I often like being the "Game Master" in the sense of creating the setting, controlling NPCs, and steering the plot. But I still like input and collaboration from my partners. In group games, I prefer to be the GM or to play a leading or mentor role.
Favorite Genres
I love a little bit of everything. My top choices would be Horror, Modern Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Magical Realism, Noir, Steampunk, Cyberpunk, Splatterpunk, Post-Apocalyptic, Historical, Mystery, old-school High Fantasy, and Sci-Fi (especially Spacesagas). I'd love to do some occasional Clockpunk or Weird West or Wuxia or Dieselpunk, too.
Genre You DON'T Like
I guess the only thing I don't particularly care for is high school drama, and even that can be fun with a good hook.
