Hello there! I'm Mel, a member of the 'Souls Assemblage, a current leader of Salsola, and someone who's been active on the board forever. I'm known for running very long, intricate plots, and am responsible for that crazy de le Poer bloodline. I have a long list of characters and NPCs. Check out my category if you aren't sure who I've played or created! Beyond that, I have created or contributed to several off-board World Territories where many of these characters originate from.

Back in the day I originally joined the board with a hilariously 2spooky character named Nosferatu, who was involved in Silent Dawn and it's later incarnation, Chimera, which I founded and led for some time between several characters before stepping away from the forum. After a hiatus from the board I rejoined Inferni with Gabriel de le Poer and eventually became a leader of the coyote clan for a few years. Salsola is my current base of operations and has been for many moons, though you can encounter my multiple characters throughout the forum.


PM — Mel

  • PM communication is highly preferred for official 'Souls and administrative inquiries and concerns.


  • When I'm around and posting, I'll usually be on Discord.
    • If we have already discussed a thread or plot, it is okay to DM me to sort out specific ideas or details.
  • I go AFK very often -- if I don't respond, I'm probably not at the computer!


Admin Information

  • PM for all 'Souls related issues, including realism checks or plot questions.
  • General requests should always be made in Maintenance

Roleplay Information

  • Replies can take anywhere from less than an hour to a week and a half or more.
    • Please poke me if I take longer than a week to reply, or if I seem to have forgotten to reply to one!
    • Remind me if we discussed a thread and it has not been started, please!
  • I post thread requests on the forum when I'm looking for new ones. Check there or Open Threads first!
    • Feel free to request threads with me directly, either via PM or DM, especially if you have a plot or thread idea in mind.
    • Even if I'm not taking new threads, I will make room for important threads or plots, such as ones related to rank or co-rank requirements.
    • I may sometimes play Preybot or take on LASKY threads, though prioritize my active characters.
  • OOC endings are usually fine if it's near the end of the thread, or if there needs to be a clean-up.
  • I remove inactive threads from my post log after three weeks. Please message me if you want to revive a thread or think that you'll have to take longer to post.
