Highlighting the sheer amount of activity in hard cold facts

The New Worlds science-fiction role-playing and creative writing project began in 2001 as the result of a discussion between co-founders Alex and Kim. What began as a hypothetical conversation then would become a project. The Project underwent two years of development solely at the hands of this duo.

The New Project sci-fi RPG opened its doors to public contribution in August 2003. Since then, the game has remained on the web for 7 years - undergoing numerous website designs, surviving and overcoming a website domain disaster, and successive burnouts of the co-founders.

The New Worlds role-playing and creative writing community has grown tremendously over the years. With 3 full length novels and well over 250 pages of background information about everything and anything, the Project now counts literally thousands of pages of released creative energy.

The roleplaying game is now in its 6th Season and has been on our co-founders' mind for 9 years.

The year 2006 was a crucial year in New Worlds' development, in October 2006, New Worlds Project celebrated the commencement of its 4th Season in style as the New Worlds Project incorporated in Belgium and the United States. As a non-profit corporation, headquartered in Brussels, New Worlds Project is now looking beyond the sci-fi RPG and is aspiring to bring the environment created by this community into the classroom. With its own corporate present at http://nwproject.org ,you can find out much more about our plans there.

In January 2007, New Worlds Project's RPG launched Target Locked and Weapons Free, fundamentally improving the role-playing game and using the opportunity to launched the 5th edition of its website.


With records beginning in 2004, New Worlds Project has seen over 15000 forum posts at the time of writing. Due to forum upgrades and software changes, these forum posts can only be said to account for the period 2004-2010.

According to these statistics, we average around 208 posts per month, or 6.9 posts per day. On a good day, the New Worlds Project can often see as many as 40 or 50 posts, whilst some days no new posts are added.

Registered user counts waver regularly - we often prune accounts which do not have forum posts so as to ensure our numbers don't artificially inflate. At the time of writing New Worlds had around 400 registered users, though many more have registered in the past and will do so in the future.

William Phase (Member Since 2006) says of New Worlds:
"So far in my very short time as a member I have found the Site to be outstanding, stories are good, the members eager to be helpful, and probably most important; the administration is just crazy organized. If you're even thinking about joining, or thinking about the slightest possibility of thinking about joining, I say do it. Get active and stay active, and have fun."


Another (Member Since 2004) says of New Worlds:
"New Worlds is a rather impressive site among the thousands like it on the web. It seems to hold a small friendly group that will always be willing to work with you. Many details are available on any writing topic you may choose to look into. Say hi and see what you think of these people."
