    Story Night When: Saturday August 5, 2017 from 2pm-5pm EDT Where: Axel’s in Agartha, around the fire pit. What it’s about: Hello and welcome all SWL players and roleplayers! This will be the first of a monthly recurring event to encourage new roleplayers and the rp-curious and allow people who want to share short vignettes, poems, cautionary tales, original works, et cetera. A long time ago, a friend named Shaw introduced me to roleplaying in a video game by hosting a recurring Story Night, where people would gather and take turns telling short stories and tales of their adventures! People came and went and either listened respectfully or told a story to the assembled. We even had theme nights for tales of love, horror, poetry nights, etc. It was a lot of fun. I’d like to honor his legacy by starting this event in SWL. My goal is to continue to have both SWL and the wonderful roleplaying community thrive and grow, as well as have fun telling and listening to stories. I look forward to having theme nights in the months to come if this first one is a success! September should be a Lore...ahem, Legendary tale night and October will of course be tales of terror. There are only a few rules for story night: Be respectful of the speaker who currently has the floor. Be respectful of the listeners who are trying to enjoy the speakers. The gathering is a peaceful one. There should be no open hostility. We’re all there for the same purpose. The host is there to facilitate the gathering. The speaker will change as the host gives them charge of the gathering. If you have a story to share: Try to post it in digestible blocks, about a sentence or two at a time to simulate storytelling. Give room for feedback. People like to interact in between parts of a story. Keep your story to about 10-15 minutes maximum! That way we can get several people up to speak. Remember to signal the end of the story and then please go take your seat so the Host can pick the next storyteller. I am looking forward to this gathering and I hope to see you all there! Thank you! PS- Filler picture until I get a better poster made!

    We recently upgraded our forum software from IPS 4.0.13 to 4.1. This was a relatively major upgrade, and so I've had to discard the previous theme and make a new one from scratch. I've come pretty far along already as you can probably see, although I'm not completely done yet. There are some minor inconsistencies and weirdnesses yet, and I have not yet styled the editor, but that will come. I hope you like it! Also, the forum update comes with many interesting new features. Here are some of the biggest ones: Activity Streams. Very flexible streams that can show every bit of activity within the community or whatever you choose to show. Here are some of them: All Activity, Unread Content, Content I Started. You can even make your own streams. Improved notifications. The update comes with instant push-notifications and browser notifications. This means that you'll get your notifications without having to refresh the page, and you can be notified even when you're not browsing the forums. This makes sure that you're immediately alerted to updates in the community. Improved navigation menu. As you can see, the navigation menu at the top of the site has changed. We now have a 2-level navigation menu that lets us organise menu elements under tabs. We also have a greater control of what elements to put in the menu with the new Menu Manager. Improved editor. The editor is now served through a DIV-element instead of an iFRAME. This makes the editor load instantly as opposed to taking a few seconds before. There are also many other improvements to the editor, such as a new contextual menu which can be opened by holding the Ctrl key down and right clicking. Performance. The developers of this suite have begun to make significant performance increases since the introduction of the 4.x branch of the software, and this is very apparent in 4.1. And much much more... The update contains a lot of bug fixes and other small changes, as well as changes to the Admin CP which gives us more control and flexibility to shape the community the way we need it to be.
