IWAKU SPRING NEWSLETTER 2024


GREETINGS MINIONS! ⊙◇⊙

Spring has sprung! Everyone with the Winter SADs are coming out of hibernation while us Sun Haters are screeching at the sky and skuttling into our burrows. We had a lovely winter season with the Secret Santa, the return of WARP, and a blast with the Love Festival and Fundraiser. While our spring season tends to be a bit on the chill side, you can expect a return of Mermay along with some great content in the form of challenges, prompts, and fun roleplays!

As a little bonus fun, this month only we have SHOWERS VS FLOWERS REACT IMAGES! Get enough and earn a trophy! :D

UPDATE DAY WILL BE APRIL 8TH!
THAT'S RIGHT! THE DAY THE FORUM GETS TURNED OFF AND EVERYONE IS SHUFFLED ONTO DISCORD AS A SCREAMING MASS OF BORED FERAL WILDLINGS! This will be a software update that shouldn't come with any massive changes. We'll certainly find out if there's any surprises. Discord will be open for all, and maybe you can hop into one of the Roleplay Channels while you're waiting! Whatever you do, don't play he Iwaku Update Day Drinking Game.

BE SAFE ON THE INTERNET - DON'T CLICK WEIRD SHIT AND CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS REGULARLY!
There's been some hacker accounts and stuff going around on Discord again, and it'll often be someone that sends you a DM out of nowhere with a strange link. NEVER click links from people you do not know or from urls you do not recognize! You can view the announcement for other tips on having safe internet habits.


GROUP ROLEPLAYS ON THE SCENE


Group roleplays can be intimidating if you're used to playing with a single partner - but they can be super fun with new kinds of dynamics and twists! If you've never tried a group roleplay before, consider starting off easy and small with a One Liner roleplay like This Goofyass Thing. OR if you can grab two or three friends and start a tiny group rp!

Here are some of our latest group RPs that are seeing players:

Camp Oasis by @The_Queer_Alien might be right up your alley if you're into summer camps for supernatural youth!

They Go In Wild by @AshenAngel features Firefighters just doing their jobs in this really cool setting!

The 1st Annual Multiversal Hunger Games by @LuckycoolHawk9 gives you a new fandom multiverse setting to explore characters in!

And as always, CHAT ROLEPLAYS are scheduled regularly, featured here in the Iwaku Chats AND on our Official Discord server!

THE ROLEPLAY REALMS IN ACTION


The WARP competition got a ton of fantastic entries this year! And while we're having some delays with judging this season, you can still join and check out our currently active realms!

@Kuno posted up The Persian Review to give updates and upcoming news for Pearls of Persia with rumors of a special event in the future!

Did you know that @rissa 's Fallout: Requiem gives you space to make your own rps and one on ones inside the setting? Both within the canon or fandom style!

If you're into Multiverse settings, @Wade Von Doom 's The Evrensel Conflict has been running diligently for years and well worth the joining.

Meanwhile @MaryGold and @wren. with The Circle have provided a setting where the supernatural is well known, in a very popular sandbox style!

Finally, @firejay1 is saying goodbye to The Regency Index. Players will be able to continue their active rps in the normal roleplay forums.

EXPAND YOUR CHARACTERS AND WORLDS WITH THE ROLEPLAY GUIDES


Did you know that ANY MEMBER can post up guides, workshops, and prompts in Roleplay Help to help inspire each other for all of our delicious roleplay creations? This is a shout out! Share your cool resources and knowledge! Even if there's already something up similar to your idea - different opinions and perspectives are always welcome. <3

In the meantime, maybe you should try our Diana's Character Style Profile exercise or @Dusk 's cool Love Exercise Prompt and see what sort of ideas turn up.


SHOWCASING IWAKU


Roleplayers be creative as hell, y'all and we need places to express it. We have lots of sections, from Showcasing itself where you will find people's stories, poetry, and art to sections where people make art and a graphics FOR YOU like the Media Shops! Check out some of these stellar threads!






ACTION IN GENERAL CHATTING


When you're not roleplaying or making roleplay accessories, sometimes it's fun to chill with your fellow members and get to know each other. there's no better place to do that than in General Chatting, where you'll get fantastic discussion topics, spammy game threads, and very silly polls.


CLOSING STATEMENTS


And that brings us to a close! Remember that Iwaku can't be the awesome community that it is without YOU the members, spending all your time here chilling with friends and writing them roleplays. <3 Get out there and have some fun.

MAY THE MUSE BE WITH YOU. Ó◇Ò
