Editor’s Note

Eternity’s End is a new kind of game on RPGCrossing that is powered by the Pathfinder Gaming System that operates as a hybrid of the dynamic story telling of Play by Post (PBP) and massive multi-player online game but without the typical pitfalls of MMOs or PBP (Linear Plots, Grinding, Game Collapse, etc.). It has a persistent static setting of an Inn that exists outside of time and space where players meet and obtain quests and then travel through dimensional doors that take them to literally any kind of world or adventure that a GM can come up with, in any kind of setting they would like to run! The game is stress tested and can functionally run in a balanced fashion and support as many players as there are GMs for the project.

Eternity’s End is both a place and a non-place, existing in multiple planes simultaneously and nowhere at all. It is a gathering place for dead races, unborn gods, forgotten heroes, restless ghosts, and the engineers of worlds as yet uncreated. Almost all the inhabitants of the Inn are travelers, either by design or by chance; by woe or good fortune. Many have simply stopped here during journeys to other places, while others came to the Inn accidentally, then realized they could not get home…

The Setting in Short:

Players and GMs that are familiar with Pathfinder Society and the Planescape Setting will find many in game parallels to both, but will also note that Eternity’s End is infinitely more expansive (for example some expansions include notes for lovecraftian horror, sci-fi/steam punk, and more) allowing for tons more character options, gaming universes, ways to play, and things to do; all for free with tons of gaming highlights!

Your Feedback is Valuable and because of that we have the FAQ, the Help Area and Suggestion Box so you can assist with the continued growth of this living setting!

Joining Eternity’s End as a Player and/or GM:

As a player you will first need to post interest in this thread and then complete a character audit as described in the Front Lobby in a timely fashion during a recruiting period and you will be introduced into the setting as soon as you are cleared for legal game entrance by your auditor.

As a GM you may join as an apprentice.

I’m an experienced GM, do I have to become apprentice?:

Absolutely not, though we highly suggest it to all new GMs as there is a lot of content to cover. To bypass apprenticeship you will need to review the EE GM Manual and pass the entrance test flawlessly.
