XKI Welcome Guide: Entertainment and Activities
Fiddling around with the NS issues can be fun at first, but it can become stale after a while if that's all you're doing. Fortunately for you we at XKI have a number of places where you can interact with your fellow islander and play games with them. Be sure to join our regional forum and our discord so you're able to fully indulge yourself in XKI activities.
Taco Island is where most of the action takes place as it is the most active part of our forum. Over here you can spam to your hearts content, whether it be joining a spam chain, lightheartedly role-playing in wacky scenarios or just chatting with some new found friends about the meanings of life, Taco Island is the place to do it. You can also take a look at some games being hosted on our Games Board, join in on the fun! If you feel a little anxious about posting on the regional forum for the first time, join in on one of the Taco Island threads, it's a great way to get started and involved in the community! Also, check out the Taco Island Section of our Discord if you want to crack jokes or have a nice chat in real time with some XKI Islander friends.
Though Taco Island allows for some aspect of role-play, if you're more a an avid role-player you may be looking for something a bit more robust and serious. In that regard we have three outlets where you can test out your writing prowess! For those who tend to stick onsite on Nationstates we also have a dedicated region A Taco Archipelago, where you and your friends can use the region's RMB for more fast paced improvised role-play. Our discord also has a room where you're able to engage with faster paced role-play with your fellow islander! Finally, we offer a Role-Playing Forum Area suited for more detailed storytelling that can be written over long periods of time. You can learn more about how to participate in our Roleplay Dispatch
