Before creating an account, please read the Rules and make sure that Abyss is the right place for you. You must be 18 years or older to join, as Abyss allows for mature content and adult themes.

Think you can handle it? Then create an account! Abyss uses a one account per member system. Choose a username that you'd like other members to call you, and make sure that you have a valid email address. The admins will use your email to contact you regarding very important site news, and notifications regarding activity.

Read the Story! It is crucial to understand what kind of atmosphere that is here in the Abyss world. This will also be updated to reflect past and present major story arcs.

Next, go to the Settings page to read up on the different places in the Abyss world. Your character may be new to the town, but you don't have to be! Each location is unique and has it's own atmosphere. You don't want to stick out. Or maybe you do.

Review the list of known Species in the Abyss world. This doesn't mean you are limited to these creatures! We do have an Other Species board. Make sure when you make your character to list their known powers and weaknesses from this page (and feel free to add your own).

Also check out Factions. Factions are not required for your character. This breaks down the factions currently in the Abyss world. If you have interest in joining or even creating a faction, visit the Factions Board for more details.

Got an eye on that hunky Scottish actor to play your demon? Go here to claim his face for your character. Make sure you check the Face Claims to see if your potential claim is taken or not, and read up on your time frame for creating a character once you make a claim.

Finally, make your character! Decided who you want to make? Post your characters profile in the Character Creation forum. The template is here. Feel free to modify the template how you see fit, but make sure the information on there is still present. Put the species of your character in the topic description so the admins can sort them easier. Once you finish your profile, you can start roleplaying! That's right, no waiting for approvals. If an admin or mod finds an issue with your profile they will PM you. They will also move it to the proper category in the Character Collection board.

Since Abyss doesn't use multiple accounts, instead there are character trackers available for users to use. Create your tracker and keep it up to date with your characters, plots, and active posts. Trackers are required for plot purposes. Read more about it here.
