Beginner's Guide to Elenlond
  • Read the Rules & Guidelines.
  • Read through Elenlond's backstory, early history, and take a quick peek at the timeline and the past forum plots if you're interested in knowing what's happened until this point. We also have information on each of the four countries for reference: Angkar, Ashoka, Morrim, and Soto. A quick overview of the site can be found here.
  • Once you have a working knowledge of the site and the rules that we abide by here, you are free to start working on your character application. While you are at it, don't forget to check out the canon list to see if any of those positions interest you, and the non-playable character article in case you have plans to bring any semi-permanent NPCs into your character's life.
  • While figuring out your character, don't forget to look over the abilities tutorial so you can start deciding on what kinds of spells, enchantments, and abilities you want to give your character.
  • Once your character has been accepted and you are ready to start roleplaying, you might want to look at joining a current site plot or perhaps just posting in the thread request forum to get started! Or you could start an open thread, which anyone can join, which we recommend you advertise the open thread ads! It is best to be proactive about finding threads for yourself, because they won't happen unless you put in the effort to make them happen.
  • Don't forget to introduce yourself to other members here! Introduction threads are a great way to start meeting the rest of the site! If you're not interested in that, you can chat in the OOC Cbox floating on the left in the tab.
  • If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to PM a staffer. We're here to help, whether it be through brainstorming or just clarifying something for you!
