Getting Started Edit
Have an idea for what you'd like to play? Excellent! Follow these steps to begin your story on Dark Forces:
1) Log on to: darkforces.arthmoor.com port 5555
To create your character, type: create <name> <password>
2) Follow the directions on the character generation screens to create your characters stats and +finger information. If you need help with any of this, feel free to contact one of our staff members via @mail or page.
3) @mail the Wizards to let them know you have finished setting up your stats. Include in this mail a brief 1-2 paragraph Concept, giving us an idea of the character behind the numbers on the sheet. Please give us 2-3 days to look over the stats and respond. If you don't get a response by this time, you are welcome to send a reminder @mail.
4) Once your Concept and Stats have been Approved by a wizard, you have 30 days in which to finish creating your full Background and post it on the wikia. See Application Template for information on how to post and complete your Background. During these 30 days, you are welcome to RP with other players and try out your character.
5) If your full background is approved by the wizards, excellent! You are finished! Continue to RP and have fun! If, however, your background requires some revisions, please work with the wizards to make the needed changes, to ensure that your character/background fits with our game.
6) If you do not complete the background after the 30 day trial period, you will lose your RP rights and your character bit will be removed from the grid until a full background has been approved.
Exceptions and Notes Edit
- Complicated or higher ranked ideas may require a full background before the character is approved for any RP. We suggest keeping characters to ranks 0-2 for starting players. Please see Character Creation Guidelines for more information.
- If there are extenuating circumstances that are keeping you from meeting the 30 day limit, you may speak with the Wizards regarding a possible extension.
- It is possible that during writing the full background or during the trial RP, you discover certain stats are not working for your character or that you overlooked stats that are needed. Speak with the Wizards about your concerns, and stats can be adjusted accordingly, up until the full background is finalized and approved.
- Please be sure to look over the Sphere and Stat pages on the wikia to learn more about Dark Forces and the information unique to this game.
