What is Eternity's End?
What is Eternity's End?
Eternity's End is both a place and a nonplace, existing in multiple planes simultaneously and nowhere at all. It is a gathering place for dead races, unborn gods, forgotten heroes, restless ghosts, and the engineers of worlds as yet uncreated. Almost all the inhabitants of the Inn are travelers, either by design or by chance. Many have simply stopped here during journeys to other places, while others came to the Inn accidentally, then realized they could not get home...
Eternity's End is a new kind of game on RPGCrossing that is powered by the Pathfinder Gaming System. It has a persistent static setting of an Inn that exists where players meet and obtain quests and travel through dimensional doors that take them to literally any kind of world or adventure that a GM can come up with, in any kind of setting they would like to run! The possibilities are literally limitless! Characters can thus literally jump into game worlds with random parties and go to new kinds of worlds all the time!
Once in a game world you will play out adventures of any kind imaginable with very minimal restrictions to the GM (Players and GMs that are familiar with Pathfinder Society will find this system very familiar, but also offering many more opportunities). An entire team of GMs run various adventures of any kind they wish and players are free to play in any of the games they qualify for (based on level and sometimes other restrictions depending on the adventure design).
All kinds of adventures await you and it's worth mentioning our GMs go through a rigorous qualification process so you don't need to worry (as much) about poor posting rates or game drops. The game is also friendly to new players and system experts alike. Further, we have player and GM incentives that reward participants for a variety of things.
Here at Eternity's End you can also expect to have other great players to play with and a whole staff of experienced GMs preparing unique and exciting adventures!
Who are we looking for?
...and that's it! Have some crazy concept for your character or adventure? Worry not, you are given creative liberties (though not mechanical liberties) unlike that which you will find in pretty much any other game you're likely to come across. We have characters from token campaign settings, future worlds, homebrews, mysterious backgrounds... it's all welcome! (Though we do encourage you to be creative and have fun with the wide array of options available).
It is worth noting, however, that accessibility to certain sources are restricted to qualifying members which is discussed later in the Eternity's End Players Manual.
Reasons to want to Play:
Eternity's End may just be exactly what you're looking for!

Eternity's End Players Manual: This manual will teach everything you need to know about playing at Eternity's End. Character creation rules are kept to a minimum to allow maximum access for new players. Out of necessity, all source material is restricted to freely available sources. Note, Tier restrictions apply, make sure you understand what Tier you qualify for before attempting to make your character.
Eternity's End Faction Manual: Factions are a new way to further add flavor to your character and bring further to life the living campaign setting of Eternity's End. Players will find factions potentially arising as part of their adventures at randomized intervals and are free to excluding NPC factions and Mr. Gone specificallyincorporate factions as part of their story telling for their character.
Eternity's End Game Master Manual: Eternity's End wouldn't exist if not for the wonderfully talented GMs it attracts. If you are a player wanting to become an apprentice GM or a skilled GM wanting to run a game, this is the manual for you. We encourage all players of this game to eventually become GMs, especially since the in game incentives are greater. It is also recommended that players review this manual even if they don't intend to GM, so as to have a better understanding of their rights as a player and how the game works behind the scenes.
