How Star Army Works

Star Army is a community where you and other members create characters and create stories together by writing what your character would do and say. That's roleplaying. Star Army is mostly writing and does not use complex game mechanics (math) like pen-and-paper tabletop roleplaying games. Our games are set in a unique, member-created science fiction universe.

Account Registration

You must be 16 or older to join Star Army. There is no cost to join or participate.

The wiki login system is separate from the forum one, so you will need to register for both.

    1. You're invited to introduce yourself in the Introductions Forum.
    2. Important notes: Forum accounts with 0 posts are regularly deleted as an anti-spam measure, so post something! Also, newly registered users start with private messages disabled and may require posts to be approved by a moderator in some forums until after their third post.
    1. You'll need a wiki account to create an article for your character page.
    2. No wiki knowledge is required to post your character; We have a form that automatically adds the wiki code for you. It's linked on the Creating A Character article.

Creating and Roleplaying Characters

Start your first character using the guide: Creating A Character. Once your character is approved you're free to start Roleplaying by joining a plot group or by creating a roleplay thread.
