Much love to our all members old and new who make this place as special as it is! We have a roll call Activity Check going on until September 9th. Make sure you check in if you're sticking around.

    7.30.17 Happy one month anniversary to Alive and Kicking! Thank you to all the members old and new who make this place as awesome as it is. We're so glad to have you with us! If there's anything that you'd like to see on A & K that we don't have, just drop us a line in our Suggestion Box.

    7.08.17 It's been a week since our opening, and we're super excited about all the new members! We have a few site additions to tell you about.

  • Here's a quick guide to getting started on Alive and Kicking:

    1. There’s not a huge amount of stuff to read on the site, but make sure you read the site rules, plot, member group info, and chat rules. The rest is gravy!

    2. Set up your OOC account first. Then once you've made your OOC account, you’ll want to make your first character account, and link the two accounts in your Control Panel.

    3. Next, grab this template here, and apply for a character. Post your app in the Application Forum when it’s done, and an Admin will review it. WIP apps are allowed as well, just bump the app once it's finished so that we know it's ready. The review process generally takes 24-48 hours.

    4. Once your character is accepted, link your application to your mini-profile for easy access. Then throw up a plotter, or hit up others' plotters so that members can start threading with you. Some of our plotting takes place in our Discord, so feel free to join us there!
