Need a little more magic in your life?
What if …
You could play in the Magimundi year-round and find your friends online in a safe, secure space for ongoing connection.
… you could find new content and new stories every month, in a world that grows and changes.
… you could develop a character over time and roleplay with others to tell intimate, suspenseful, whimsical, emotional, and powerful stories
New World Magischola — and locations across the Magimundi — are open. Join us online via the Catoptrics Network and stay connected through your magic mirrors.
(Maury says: Mirror magic had been in existence for ages, but it was New World Magischola students who networked and aligned enchanted mirrors, using powerful light spells to communicate. This was the start of the Catoptrics Network that eventually spread throughout the Magimundi!)
For the past five years, thousands of people from around the globe have escaped to the magical world of the Magimundi through our live events. There, you can be a hero, save the day, find romance, challenge villains and discover magic as the star of your own story in an immersive environment that makes you forget about life’s doldrums and mundanity.
It’s a life-changing experience of empowerment, camaraderie, thrills, and fun. The actions you take change the story as it unfolds before your eyes. Your choices matter. YOU matter.
For the first time, we are bringing the magic of the Magimundi online through virtual experiences. Now you can escape into the magical world from your computer or mobile device whenever you want. Be the wizard you were meant to be. On your schedule.
We’re in rapid development of new ways to collaboratively roleplay online using text, voice, video, and virtual reality systems. The everyday world is changing before our eyes, and we’re busy building a magical world for you to play in with your friends and family. We want you to join us!
We’d originally planned on a monthly subscription price of $9.97 per month to join.
Due to the COVID-19’s burden on people’s lives and incomes, we’re instead offering a pay what you want monthly subscription model, with the suggested price of $9.97 per month. Those who are doing well are welcome to contribute more if they want to help offset the low pay-what-you-want price and help others take part. (Ben says: The store interface is set to $1 minimum, however if you are experiencing hardship now, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get you set up.)
We want to make the Magimundi experience one that is living, immersive, and accessible. Having carried hidden and secret lore for five years with no suitable place during live events, we’re excited about the possibilities of these stories being told in online play!
Moderators and Admins will take custody of the experience, enforce our code of conduct, and intervene directly should things go awry.
Find the Dean at New World Magischola, search for the Prisoner below Imperial, or pick a fight with Jack Slager in Avernus (Ben says: Don’t pick a fight with Jack Slager in Avernus). (Maury says: Or just meet your friends at the Mission at midnight to divvy up there.)
Plus, you’ll take part in a consistent, singular, canonical timeline that you get to change through your play.
