What exactly is the Index & Digest?
The Roleplayers' Index & Digest is set up for all Escapists to obtain information on the numerous roleplays, without having to read through a dozen pages in order to find what they're looking for.
Part 1: Index
To allow us to keep an up-to-date record, we would like people to post links to threads that they are either GMing or in which they are participating, using the handy-dandy form below:
Name Of Your RP
GM(s): Here you list the people in charge of the roleplay. Co-GMs may be added at your discretion.
Genre/Type: Basically, what is your RP based on? Real life, space opera, superheroes? Add the answer to that question here.
Status: What is the condition of the RP? Is it open and accepting? Or has it begun and progressed far enough to no longer need any further applicants?
Link: Here you can either copy/paste the URL of the thread, or provide a shorter hyperlink using the LINK tag.
Usergroup: If you want, you can provide a link to the usergroup that has been set up for your RP. This does not apply if you don't have a group, of course.
Brief Description: We would like a small paragraph from you describing your thread. Keep it about two to three lines long, nice and easy. Essentially this is a summary of the premise of your thread; sell it to us.
Of course, if an RP has been posted here, it does not need to be re-posted by another participant, unless said participant is the GM correcting something.
Part 2: Digest
Every so often I will update the thread by compiling the roleplays that have been added, and these will be placed in my next post in the thread. I may also put up a special post describing some of them. Posts like these will be known as Digests, in a similar manner to Susan Arendt's RP Digest feature on the Escapist. If I do put up a post like this, I will talk to the GMs of their threads first, and perhaps obtain a longer summary of their RP to be added to the Digest.
For convenience, I will provide links in the OP to any Digests that are posted.
Hope you found this useful!
This is not a direct copy of Claymorez's original thread. Some parts of his thread have been directly copied (like the ASCII sword), but most have been redone to better suit the way I make my threads. He offered to let me run the Index & Digest, and I happily stepped up to the challenge.
All roleplays that were submitted to his thread have been re-posted here, below. All of them have been rewritten to suit the form provided in this thread.
Because hey, why not, I'm going to keep a running tally of the number of spambots that have made their presence here.
Number of Spambots: 4

Ruins: A Memory of Man's Destruction
GM: Lost in the Void
Genre/Type: Post Apocalypse/Steampunk
Ruins: A Memory of Man's Destruction
Description: Imagine a world that nature has reclaimed; no skyscrapers, pollution and machinery destroying our delicate world. Things are simpler now; simple tribes litter the planet, scattered by petty ideology, much like humanity always has been. This is the world now; after the Event, the Ascension occurred where humanity took a step back from their industrial powers and it seemed like an overnight change to the way things are now. You are members of one of these tribes; you live shadowed by the tattered ruins of an old factory. Your tribe has a rich history of new culture and technology, based off the steam devices scouts have found in the factory; however there are rooms, despite being opened once, have been sealed and locked away; the Elders seem to hold these secrets from the population. Fortunately, you and your friends are only children by their standards, barely 16; in short a free reign is given easily to explore the ruins. There is a misplaced trust that the child's mind doesn't turn to mischief; perhaps in these ruins lay treasures to be found, technologies beyond imagine, or even just an adventure waiting to happen.
Shadows of the Universe
Genre/Type: Sci-fi Action

The Earth Union also allowed a secret group of Genetically altered soldiers known as WINGS to lead the way for the colonization of planets.

You've agreed to work for the man, and no matter the job you have to perform it - you must follow through in order to live another day. The group is then sent to collect debts, dispatch unruly leaders, solve gang feuds, locate thieves and performing an occasionally large scale assassination. You ask them why.
No. Dead men tell no tales.
