Flashback question

Postby Shiress on February 17th, 2013, 1:26 am

If I was to do a flashback thread how far back does it need to go to be considered a flashback? Also, should I post a FB in the forum of the city I am now or where the FB actually takes place? Thanks :)

You joined in Winter 512 AV so you can start flashbacks in Fall 512 AV.

The flashbacks can be where you had them.

EDIT: Wrong year.

Flashbacks are considered to be so when you post a thread dated any time before season you started RPing in. So if you started in Winter 512 AV, a flashback could be from Autumn 512 AV and any time before it.

As far as I am aware, you post a flashback in the city that it takes place in and get it graded by the STs in that same forum. This is what I have seen others doing.

This link might be useful to you.

Any idea of how long it may take someone to get from Sunberth to Syliras? If they arrived in Syliras on the 23rd day winter 512 would it be safe to say they would have started out from Sunberth in the fall?

I am not good with travel but I am going to say yes to this question if you left at the start of fall.

Here is a distance chart for you.
As it says, these are straight line distances.

Syliras to Sunberth is about 2500 miles, so about 35 days if she was walking non-stop. She might gain time if using a horse or carriage, and lose time whenever she takes a break and sleeps.

It might be a safe bet to say about 50 days, give or take. It depends on how you think your character would travel. So your character might have left Sunberth about the 60th to 70th of Fall.
