I'm just wondering, guys. If I want to post in, say the "Dragonlance" or whatever forum it was, or any of the other ones, do I need to be familiar with the story of Dragonlance? The world it is set in, characters, etc etc?

Another question. Am I posting this in the right place or is there meant to be some OOC place you can type into?

Thank-you. Forgive my naivity. Is there such a word...?

I think so...but then again, I don't have a dictionary on hand, so I couldn't say for sure. Anyway, about your questions:

1.

If I want to post in, say the "Dragonlance" or whatever forum it was, or any of the other ones, do I need to be familiar with the story of Dragonlance? The world it is set in, characters, etc etc?


Answer: Most often, the answer to this question is "yes". But don't worry, most people will help you out with the background of what's going on, and that makes it easy to go along with the story. However, if you still don't feel comfortable rping in a setting where you don't know any of the history, there are other areas here to rp in. Like the General RP area. That's a great place to go, especially if you just want an rp where you can lose yourself.

2.

Am I posting this in the right place or is there meant to be some OOC place you can type into?


Answer: You most definitely posted in the right place. OOC threads are meant for out of character talk in the main rp forums. Most DM's create an OOC to go along with the main thread, simply just to keep things tidy.

Hope that helps you out. Don't worry if it confused you, others will pop in to give you their take on the situation. That you can count on.

From what I've experienced before this usually does help.. IF you want to play a character thats well informed. If you want to play, just off hand, some hermit who has spent their entire life living in one place training how to use a sword against the creatures that roam the area (orcs, bandits, goblins etc for forgotten realms for example) then you can explain that your character is from the back woods and doesn't know jack about politics or geography! :D
