Welcome
to Pandora

By the hands of the Gods, you have been plucked from your time and from your world, dropped into the box. Only the box is a world of its own.

We are a mass crossover based on the concept of Pandora's Box. Characters from nearly any fandom can be played here. Because of the endless character possibilities, we are canon only here at Pandora. Take a peek at our rules and plot information before starting your new life in Pandora.

    Price Guide


    This is a rough list of what people in Pandora can expect to get for their money, a brief outline of which you can find in our Life in Pandora information thread. While a full list would be impossible to compile -- after all, there are so many items up for sale! -- this should serve as a basic comparison chart, so players can determine just what kind of value an item might have. We’ve organized it into several broad sections, so as to make price comparison easier for you guys.

    Don't forget that:
    • 12 pence is equal to one shilling.
    • 240 pence is equal to one pound.
    • 20 shillings are equal to one pound.
    A helpful tip is also to think of ONE in-game pound being worth TEN real-life pounds.
