Ah yes, the newcomers, how we hate them, how we despise them, how we loath them. Foul, scummy people running in from the streets with their hair unkempt and their teeth in their shoes. "Oh my! How it smells! It must be the newbs!" Well har de har har! I've come to tell you, yes YOU that I am now forcing my mighty, cheery, happy, bunny hugging, cat cuddling, magnificent role-playing skills onto this site!

Since I left my old site, cold, abandoned to the wild animals that insulted and mocked one another, my urge to role-play with civil folks has been perked (The Horror!). With nothing but my fingers glued to my keyboard, dripping with the honey of creativity, I found this lovely site. So now I must depend on the kindness of strangers (you) to make sure that this poor, sorry excuse for a washed up role-player (me) knows how you people operate (Advice on what you dislike so I can avoid it, tips.)

So all in all,

Hi.

WAAAHOOOO!!!

*ahem*

Welcome to the board. ;)

Yes, we (they, the Mods) are generally lenient with most RPing… (from what I have seen)


:P

Yes, I joined this place because it seemed like the genres were in good order and I saw the OOC threads. Though, I'm still a bit curious about some of the features. Like, what are those GL, KL, XP things under your avatar, and my non-existant avatar?

Firstly, welcome!

Secondly, welcome!

Thirdly, I have no idea what GL and KL are, but XP is pretty much a post counter. You generally get 1 XP for everything you do, and lose XP for everything you dont do... I guess.

Fourthly, welcome!

Well, yeah, you get 1XP for each new post, and 2XP for each new thread you start.

CL stands for Class, and RK stands for Rank. As your XP increases, you'll be able to change them.

Well, you rank will increase with your XP (duh!), but class change options have not been enabled yet. If you RP then you would probably have a good idea what classes are (thief, ranger, etc) for now everyone is stuck with General, as in basic class, not General as in leader of an army.

Some forums give you more xp when you post in them.

That does not mean you should spam the boards in order to up your rank. That is frowned upon and I know someone in this very thread who had his xp (well, at the time it was called post count) reset once, for spamming. :D
