The Merman Meetup is aimed at building and strengthening the community among men in the aquatics world.

It’s an opportunity to connect, share experiences, and foster a sense of brotherhood, camaraderie, and support within this unique group.

[10:34 AM] Dianna Muircastle: Mermen do need a space.
[10:34 AM] ? ?????? ?????-???????? ? (Vesper Absinthe): Secondly!

Crystallum Lunae Shoal is an aquatic roleplay group uniquely founded by aquatics for aquatics and those who wish to ally with them. Our community is dedicated to nurturing and expanding the creative boundaries of roleplay, with a special emphasis on aquatic races and their rich, diverse lore. We pride ourselves on being a multi-sim group, exploring and weaving narratives across a variety of settings to encourage and accommodate various playstyles and preferences. Currently, our adventures span two realms: the Fractured Realms, a land steeped in medieval fantasy, and Corsair Cay, a vibrant world echoing the golden age of pirates in the 1700s-1800s.

We openly invite all aquatic races to join our shoal and dive into the depths of imaginative storytelling and we eagerly anticipate the amazing stories we will craft together.

[10:39 AM] Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): We are updating the hangout list. Contact ???? (tabitha.hawksby) is my assistant and coordinating. She has the application – if its been awhile – consider submitting an update application. Right now we want the list current but also our web page needs updating. Take a good shot of your hangout site – name it in a useful manner and talk to Tabi. She comes in odd hours (works nights) but gets IM (and I drop notecard on her too if important)

Other than that – we don’t yet have antipated answers to your questions. No details – you may ask, but frequently my answer lately is – I don’t know. Life is a journey – enjoy the trip!

We are currently planning our first proper party, and are looking to hire a deejay and two barkeeps to be trained for the event. Should any of you be willing to talk to me, I will be happy to answer any questions you have with regards ot the club. I will happily accept notecards here in-world — my IMs unfortunately get capped — or if you would care to look me up via Discord, my name there is the same as my Display Name, here.”
