Welcome to PLAGUED! The very active zombie RP with a twist.
This thread is to help guide you through the steps to understanding the rules, RP, character creation and posting. If you have any questions AFTER reading this and everything it directs you to, please feel free to send me a PM.
I won't bite your head off.
First thing you should do is to read the RULES. There aren't that many, but I expect everyone to follow them to a T.
The next thing you should do is read the PLOT. Because the site has been around for over a year, there have been multiple plot movements, but please read all of them. They are essential to your understanding of the site.
After you've read the plot, the next thing you should read is the RACES INFO Like everything else in essential information, this is something you absolutely must read carefully. If you do not read through the race info, you will have NO idea what ANYTHING on this site means. In order to make a character successfully, you have to read all the posts in races info. There are only three. It's not that bad, but it's essential for you knowledge of the site. I can't stress how important this thread is.
Next, it is in your best interest that you read the FAQ and the SPECIFIC LORE board. Before you ask me any questions, I suggest you read the FAQ because your question might be answered in that thread. The FAQ answers a lot of common questions I get and I update it regularly as I get more questions that aren't answered anywhere else. So, before you ask me something, read over the FAQ to make sure it hasn't already been answered.
Once you're done with the FAQ, you should probably read over the CANON ROLES thread. Even if you're new, it's generally a good idea to get an idea of what may be available to you as you develop on the site. Needed Roles are not available to new members, but it's still suggested you read this.
After that, you'll most certainly want to read the CHARACTER TEMPLATE. This is the template you must use to create a character. Read through the template FIRST before you start making a character. Some sections in the template can be confusing if you don't know what I'm asking for. In the template, I go through each section and explain what I'm looking for. So please make sure you read through it. This prevents me from telling you that you have something wrong with your template.
While you're making your character, you may notice that you're required to have a PB (play by). This is a model you use as your character. For instance, someone might use Julia Roberts as their PB. Their character then takes on the appearance of Julia Roberts. To help you decide a PB, go to the FACE CLAIMS. This thread shows you what is NOT available as a PB. Once you've picked a PB, it is essential that you post in face claims so that no one else can take your PB.
Once your character has been accepted (you'll know when your name changes color), you can make your first IC post! If you don't mind starting a new thread, you can post pretty much anywhere as long as it makes sense. For instance, if you are an Overmind or Reaver, you cannot be in Safe Haven. A Safe Haven citizen or soldier can be out in the city as long as they have a reason. Safe Haven is SAFE so there shouldn't be much drive to go out into the dangerous city unless there's a reason. The reason can be they're looking for resources or in search of someone or they volunteered to go out and look for useful items; just as long as it makes sense.
I hope this thread helps you get started. I know it's a lot of information, but it's definitely worth it.
Enjoy, and welcome to Plagued!
