My experience in this RPG has been highly negative. I get the impression the staff has a stigma against players in general. They don't seem to trust anyone and have very close knit tight plots between their own characters (which wouldn't even be a problem if they allowed players some freedoms to actually plot themselves) and it's more like 'they do their thing' and 'you aren't allowed to do yours' scenario. The dice system is basically DG fudging without any stats, it gets old when staff characters get all the wins and drama. The game has reopened twice, and one can only hope the staff will either learn from their bad errors or just go play privately. Otherwise it's a waste of time for players, because their isn't much you're allowed to RP without staff interference.

I was warned not to join this game by a friend, and I was heedless and gave it a go anyway. The intro is misleading, it says the game functions on IC actions without pre-plotting, the truth is the mods control and plan everything behind the scenes, leaving players in the dark. You'll notice the mods characters are in 'safe zone' they marry who they want, sleep with who they want, do what they want, get plenty of angst without realistic boundaries of behavior, while players' characters are backed into corners and screwed. If you like sitting on the side lines watching staff play out a private soap opera, then you'll probably last a few months on Edolon. If not, you're better off RPing and writing elsewhere... like anywhere is better.

Site revolves round the whims of mods.. I apped a character and while looking around starting noticing there wasn't much actual RP,mostly just smutting and cheap one liners among staff. I feel cheated I wasted hours on an app, because at the end of the day the site was too awful to bother joining.

Run by a bunch of control freaks, bad writing, stupid smutting and very unfriendly community. Attempted to join, and was turned off by the mods' attitude before my app was approved. I got accepted but whoa...Not a game I was sticking around. RPers beware, these are the same former crew who ran Forsilvra back in the dark days...

I find the review from 2013 accurate to my experiences. I had heard bad things about the site before joining but I had assumed it was from troublemakers. So I joined and was enjoying myself immensely. I found the staff as distant compared to other staff I have encountered but reasoned it was just the nature of how they communicate.

Then strangely, i was getting messages from long-term members (from version 1) talking about how the first version died from drama. I brushed it off as none of my business. By the time I was on the site long enough, I started to notice the staff's methods. They will rp only with each other, smutting and romancing. If they don't like people plotting together, they will stop it, especially if they imagine a romance between them (only the staff are "good enough" to do romance).

They passive-aggressively complained about other characters with each others' characters, blurring the line of ooc/ic. They also had their characters argue with members' characters about stuff they oocly did not like to have member characters change to their liking. They would godmod member characters and then excuse it as "the character is lying" or "it's already established ic".

It seemed only member characters were making political mistakes. Theirs never did and if they had an issue, it was usually soap opera worthy (random memory loss, getting evil from a knock in the head, tripping someone during a dance) or twisted (gang-rape a character before getting bored of them and putting them away).

If you pmed the staff, they ignored your pms. Elsewhere, a staff member called it "pestering". Even though, a staff member is meant to ENCOURAGE openness and trust by listening to anything a member brings to them, no matter how small or stupid.

As a member, I noted how cold staff would suddenly turn if they did not like a new members' character idea or how condescending they would be towards a guest asking questions in the chatbox.

Last and not least, they would make decisions for your character or push plots on you that you never agreed to and if you did not like it, they will say that you cannot play fairly.

There's a reason why the site died once. There's a reason why it's died again. There's also a reason why not that many people are joining. It's a shithole.
