Oymyakon is a rural locality of the Oymyakonsky District of the Sakha Republic, Russia. It is located along the Indigirka River. It is one of the coldest permanently inhabited localities on earth, with down to -50°C in the winter. There are no roads connecting it to the rest of the countries in the summer, but in the winter the Indigirka River serves as a highway to bring food and supplies to the remote village. It hosts less than 500 habitants, who live mostly from hunting, fishing and, in the summer, cultivating the fields. It is surrounded by a pine forest inhabited by reindeers and semi-wild horses. Why would someone come here? Well, some of us have lived here their whole lives, some simply came looking for a simpler life, or maybe to run away from their past.

before anything else

This is the part where you have to go before you do anything else. It explains the context, which is useful to create a character, and you can find more useful information in the annexes. It also contains the rules of the forum, that you have to read and respect. You can also find help to format your posts, and the last part allows you to create a character but also to give them a super interesting social life. You can also write their journal or write each other texts or letters.
context, rules, introduce yourself, you're not alone, help.

the village

oymyakon is one of the coldest places on earth. in the winter, it's the only place where people can find shelter and food for thousands of kilometers. it's not much, but you'll be happy to find it when there's a snow storm outside and your hair is literally frozen. in the summer, you'll still be happy to find it if you need to take a boat to go to a bigger city. don't be put off by the leader statue that seems to have been forgotten when communism fell, or the half-wild horses wandering in the streets, the place is more welcoming than it looks.

surroundings

around the village are hundreds and hundreds of tundra and forest before any other inhabited place or city. some live in the forest, in small cabins made of wood and metal, sometimes along the river. the reindeers are lead to their pastures, even in the winter, and some even keep fishing in the river even with the ice being sometimes more than a meter thick. not far from Oymyakon, the Indigirka river takes a turn, creating an elbow, in the shape of a small lake. In the summer, you can take the boat from the docks to reach Oust-Nera or Iakoutsk and in the winter, the river acts as a road. In both cases, it can take up to several days to reach any city.

this is the part of the forum to relax and enjoy talking to people. the flood is for any type of discussion, but also to show off your skills if you want to, or to share things you like irl. Anyone is free to create a new discussion with an explicit title. there is also the game part, where you can just spend some time playing silly games if you're bored.
