Flashbacks have to be done in thread -not your cs- to be awarded xp.

Hello :)

Just to elaborate on what Prophet said, you're more than welcome to write Flashback threads (which take place prior to your creation date), but they will still earn experience points the same way as for any other thread. It would be based on roleplaying your character doing the skill in which you want to improve upon (1 exp per post).

This is largely a game mechanic so that all new characters start on the same footing and so you can work and grow your character as you continue to roleplay here. Even if your character is hundreds of years old, it's not nearly as fun starting off as 'all powerful' and with no meaningful goals for your character to progress towards.

So yes you can write Flashbacks but skill points are still earned the same way with Flashback threads.

Sweet I'm alright with that, just wanted to make sure what needed to be done in case I wanted to go that route. Thanks for the help!

I guess the next thing to ask is if I want to have a flashback where would I post it, with my character or on a different thread? If you can provide links I'll make sure to do them there.

To do a flashback, you start a thread in whichever city your character would have been in at the time the flashback is dated. You can only start threads in cities that are currently open. If the city you need isn't open, then you have to wait until it is to write a flashback there.

Does that make sense?
Very busy at work. May not be around much for a while.
