    Hey there and welcome! Feel free to look around if this is your first visit.
    Essence of Horhsal is a roleplay website that focuses on play-by-post RPing.

    Our roleplay genre is original with elements of science fantasy. We only allow original art and animanga face claims. There are different places to RP in and stories to experience all over Horhsal!
    You can find the worldbuilding section at the top where you can find a guide within the Newcomer database.

    You can also check out our currently going/planned stories and events! And in the case you want to test things out first, there is a non-canon RP testing ground for guests.
    Optionally, you can also hunt for fun achievements when you scroll down to medals here.

    If you ended up here without knowing what roleplaying is - no problem - here is our Guide to play-by-post RP for new RPers and those that never RPed before but want to try it.

    You can also contact us/chat with us if you are not a member and still indecisive.

  2. Roleplaying

    The capital of the Empire and its heart. This forum can be used for anything happening within the capital itself - or if your scene plays in a lot of different places - but you are also free to use the sub-forums for the same purpose but with a focus on somewhere.



    0 posts

    This forum is to play out events and stories without the need to use the forums that focus on specific places for that and also allows you to temporarily use places outside the hub (like if there is a story that plays in Krondax but belongs to the Etingnun hub).
    It does not have to be used if you prefer to play it out in places, however.
