Hey, I'm brand brand brand new to both this website and this art (text roleplaying that is). I was wondering if I could get some pointers on how to go about actually writing and creating my character and how to start "playing" with that character. I'm not new to writing, but this is entirely foreign to me so perhaps to know the basics would be good ehehe...

Hello Artemi,

I am Mirage, AS of Alvadas and your resident RP helper haha. First of you will find everything you need about getting stared here at the Starting Guide. I suggest you read through all of the information there first and see if you have any more questions and Ill be happy to answer them.

You can find sample character sheets (CS) right HERE. These give you the basic outline and what you will need in your character sheet. Sorry that this is not longer, but my lunch break is over. I will be back on in a couple of hours so check chat for me or ask your questions here and I will answer them :). You can also PM me for further help.

Mirage

P.S. Welcome to Mizahar!
