Welcome to Agents of Sigil


Agents of Sigil is an expansive collaborative project that will be introducing a new system to the play-by-posting format. It will give every player the chance to create the character they have always dreamed of making, have them go wherever they wish to go, and have them interact with others in small and large groups with one-off style missions ranging from 1 to 16 people.

You will have the chance to build relationships, make an impact in the dynamic world of Sigil and other planes of existence, and explore wherever you wish to explore. Agents of Sigil is a Sandbox game if you wish it to be, or it can be a railroad game should you wish it to be. There is a story around every corner so you can make your own path in this MMO inspired game.



City of Sigil



Sigil is located atop the Spire in the Outlands. It has the shape of a torus; the city itself is located on the inner surface of the ring. There is no sky, simply an all-pervasive light that waxes and wanes to create day and night. Sigil cannot be entered or exited save via portals; although this makes it quite safe from any would-be invader, it also makes it a prison of sorts for those not possessing a portal key. Thus, sometimes Sigil is called "The Cage". Though Sigil is pseudo-geographically located "at the center of the planes" (where it is positioned atop the infinitely tall Spire), scholars argue that this is impossible since the planes are infinite in all dimensions, and therefore there can never truly be a center to any or all of them; thus, Sigil is of no special importance. Curiously, from the Outlands one can see Sigil atop the supposedly infinite Spire.

Sigil contains innumerable portals that can lead to anywhere in the Dungeons & Dragons cosmology: any bounded opening (a doorway, an arch, a barrel hoop, a picture frame) could possibly be a portal to another plane, or to another point in Sigil itself. Thus, the city is a paradox: it touches all planes at once, yet ultimately belongs to none; from these characteristics, it draws its other name: "The City of Doors".



The Guild


Agents of Sigil is a True Neutral adventurer's guild inside the city of Sigil. The guild takes any and all types of creatures and beings of any alignment and of any creed. Their public goal is to save planes from the brink of destruction regardless of whether they are ruled by good or evil forces ( an example of a world ruled by evil would be Farland). Unofficially, the guild conducts many other operations such as research experiments in worlds previously saved by the guild and it is also a major player in the underground politics of Sigil.



Prestige Races


Agents of Sigil will be introducing a new homebrew mechanic called Prestige Races. Two races have been developed thus far and two more are in the works. So far applicants can play as the Angelic Deva or a Demigod race known as the Elhiem. You can find out more about creating a Deva or an Elhiem in The Planar Travelers Guide PDF found here. (This is still a work in progress and liable to change)



Character Creation


We will be accepting 8 people to help us get the new system going. Once everything is fleshed out, we will have rolling acceptance like the Adventure League.

  • Characters Start at level 17!

Mission:
The creators of Agents of Sigil first and foremost wish to make a fun game. How we differ from others is that we are not afraid to innovate and adapt to allow everyone to make their dream character and to show off their story. We will be innovating the PBP format, making more prestige races, and introducing a new system for going past level 20 as just a few examples of our plans going forward.

This game looks incredible but there's already an overwhelming number of applicants, so I'm going to hold out for my heart's true desire, the Dark Tower game.

Oooo a dark tower game would be great, put that up in the discussion thread!

There was a dark tower game thread posted about a week ago and I said I would run one soon after this one started. Can't say when the ad will be up, but it will be a spin off game of Agents of Sigil where players level up quickly and eventually join this game.

That sounds great, honestly the level 17 seemed rather daunting to me.

Closing Applications & The Journey Forward

Closing Applications & The Journey Forward

We wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who took part in the application process here at Agents of Sigil. It has been one heck of a journey and a learning process and it has only made us more hopeful for the future of this game. We will be returning within a few months with another ad to take more applicants, but for now, the game is closed to any new applications. I hope you enjoyed our first presentation of the game.

To the applicants, all of the applications we reviewed were phenomenal and it struck awe into us to see how many people were willing to put so much work into their applications for the game. So thank you from all of the DMs here at Agents of Sigil for taking the time to show us such wonderful characters. We wish we could take more of you, but we will, unfortunately, have to only take the 8 we set out for with this advertisement. If you aren't accepted this time around, it does not mean we didn't think your app was top tier but it simply came down to subjective decisions made between the moderators and we hope to see you reapply (potentially even with the same character) when rolling admissions come around.

In the meantime, we will try to improve Agents of Sigil for the community by setting our course into unknown waters with the guidance of our new crew.
