The Hesperides Château

The Hesperides Château is a literate 18+ roleplaying server centered around casual but well-written RP, specifically Slice-of-life and ERP. The server setting is an otherworldly resort with a fairly simple lore setup, and our character creation process is very freeform since characters can arrive from various universes.

The château is a social sandbox, so if you're looking for action or plot-heavy RP this is not really the best place to be. But otherwise, if you want to hang out and have fun in more ways than one with all sorts of characters, please swing by!

Incredibly friendly, and not heavily pressured!
I've been in this server for a little while now, and the mods are incredibly friendly, as are other members, along with incredibly helpful for any questions you might have!

The lore is in depth, but not overwhelming, and the sample for being accepted into the server isn't overly strict. Its just a case of punctuation, sentence structure and at least a paragraph.

I would highly recommend this server for anyone looking to make friends and have fun RPing with interesting characters from all over.

Don't waste your time here.
If I could give this place zero stars I would.

I joined the server trying to find a place to play. Before you can officially join you have to pass a literacy check(I assume, i'll get to this in a moment.) to see if your writing is a good "Fit for the server". After sitting in there for a day or so to check everything over and look at the writing styles to see if they mesh with mine, I posted my sample. Two other people posted samples around the same timeframe I did with one of the others having a similar writing style to what was seen in the server. Waiting a day we finally got a response and all three of us were turned down.

The reasoning? And I quote: " I am truly sorry but none of you quite fit our standards. I hope the three of you have a lovely day regardless." One of the others and myself asked what the criteria needed to join was and we were given the respone, and again I quote: "If you have any questions, please feel free to DM me and I am more than happy to answer them". A few seconds later another post from the same person who was speaking with us stated that the mods and butlers/maids all look over the posts and discuss whether we were a good fit for the server. The person(Howard) then immediately deleted the somment thinking no one was around to see it at the time. This in and of itself is a pretty shady practice and just hints that if you do DM them you're only get some bullshit reason they made up on the fly.

There's no way to even figure out this criteria as the sample they ask for is pretty much anything from something you wrote on the fly to something you posted in a previous RP. They don't even ask you any questions about the post you made; just dismiss you and send you off. Once more, after viewing the server for a day and even looking over previous samples to get an idea me and these others posted only to get turned down with no true reasoning behind it. As much as I hate to say it, your best bet is to steer clear of this server.

TL;DR - There is no actual criteria to let you know what you need to do in order to join this server. There are other servers out there that provide this kind of roleplay. Don't waste your time with this one. This is sad given the fact there are some good roleplayers here who I doubt have any idea this is going on and is likely keeping them from meeting up with new people.

Absolutely Amazing Mods, and Great RP/ERP
When I first joined, I was met with a bot message, telling me to submit a sample from a previous RP or make one up. I knew right away that they were going to be picky about what passes. I was accepted, and immediately welcomed and introduced to tons of other great roleplayers. Everyone that is in, is in because they care about literacy, about grammar, and about creating beautiful, imaginitive stories. The Château doesn't want casual, two sentence responses. They want actual stories!

So yes, the Hesperides Château is picky! But that is what makes it such a wonderful place!

Awesome Admins, bit crowded
Great place for a roleplayer to chill and unwind. They've got a bit higher standards, so be prepared to write an introduction. Other than that, this is a *very* well kept server, with a great staff to boot.
While it's got a great staff to help you along, it can feel a little overwhelming on your first visit, and continues to be very active. If you've got the time to dedicate to a server like this, it's a great experience!
