Well, start with the basics.

Name:

History:

Take a browse through the OOC threads and look at the charactersheets posted in there. That should give you a good idea. :)

Or... You could just start in The Training Grounds :P. Or in one of my threads. I'd be willing to help you out with the basics.

Well, if you get stuck anywhere but in the dragonlance or greyhawk stuff, just drop me a line. :)

Nervous? No need to be nervous. If you are familiar with Forgotten Realms then you could join Dark Storm Rising. If not, then you still could. Haha. What settings are you familiar with?

dragons and elves are played in most forums, vampires you'll find in the world of Darkness forum. :)

Not to go all Regulator here, but....there's a section in Gamer's Corner called Player Tips. There's a topic there about character development. Just go to the RPG Discussion Forums under the Gamers Corner heading, and there you go!

Honestly, it's a lot easier to do that, because everyone who's been in there has posted an opinion on what makes good characters.

Caelin, not all vampires are rp'ed in the World of Darkness Forum... I do have a vampire clan/story of my own making, the stories were anything with the NightStalker in the title... Stuff on Ayeka and family can be foundHERE (http://groups.msn.com/ThreeMoons/ayekadrache.msnw" target="_blank)

;) anyway...there's no need to be nervous... we are nominally a friendly bunch...

well there is just something about starting in an RP.. once the initial shock is over i should be good lol

thanks everyone. i just located the "academy" part... i don't normally visit the RP side, so this is a new little beastie. i have some characters with backgrounds, but i can't think of a storyline.

:P Its Forgotten Realms, not Dragon Lance. Though I see your point, perhaps some other time.
