I'd like to introduce Shadowlack.
Shadowlack is a play-by-post roleplaying game and original science fantasy world building project. We've been around for ages (over a decade) as a little niche roleplaying game, and have tasted a wide variety of different software (ezBoard, Ikonboard, IPB, and several custom solutions). We're currently cozied up with Xenforo and are liking it so far.
A few notable features:
- Custom character registry & character selection functionality when creating new threads/posts
- MediaWiki integration
- Unique "cipher" bbcode
- Buzz board for in character gossip
- Further site integration with Taigachat Pro (buzz notifications, new character creation, etc.)
- Annual stars on profiles
- Gender as a text field ('cause who really needs the gender binary?)
- Illustrated board icons
- Site currency: Glims
- Word count wars!
