1.  OOC History

Bleeding Souls was founded on November 18, 2001 by Sie, Natalie, and Jenn on Ezboard forums. There were three packs to start off with, and this expanded and consolidated and shifted about throughout the years. Bleeding Souls was active from November 2001 until April 2008, where a large plot involving lots of fire changed the entire scene, forcing all characters to the west. This marked the beginning of 'Souls, the current incarnation of the site, which takes place in Nova Scotia. Over the years 'Souls has been marked by various changes to the way the site is run as well as the game itself.

2.  Boards, Domains & Hosting

'Souls has endured various hosts, from the good to the bad, for the primary website over the years, from Geocities to piggybacked friends accounts to legitimate purchased hosting. Ezboard handled the hosting of the forums from 2001 up until early 2007, following which they were converted to IPB 2.2.2. This platform was short-lived, however, and IPB was downgraded to 1.3.1 Final in fall 2007, where the game remained until October 2012, when it was moved to phpBB.

3.  Community

'Souls has various games and other ways you can get more involved than just roleplaying, if you'd like!
