On the surface Edolon can seem a good attempt at a semi-historical-fantasy RP. However, the world building is underdeveloped, most has been ripped from Game of Thrones with odd random uses of ancient Roman history. Holes and confusion in the lore left over from the previous version of the RP create a lopsided world guide. Setting issues aside, the mods are not the most welcoming and discourage members from joining. ICly the mods are very controlling and do not allow players control of their own plots and character development. The overall attitude of the site is immature and does not deliver on the premise of 'political medieval fantasy' RP. The site could be better but the mods clearly have control freak issues and lose players very quickly. A good idea gone very bad. Edolon is Game of Thrones without the politics, action, and intrigue, or a well crafted medieval setting. In short, it's basically a one liner soap opera with sexual content.
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.
