The Newbie Guide

We accept roleplayers of all talents and abilities, and we strive to create a safe, enjoyable, and immersive community and experience for all.

◒ intro to our roleplay

The topics you'll want to read first and foremost, if you haven't already, are our http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=28 as well as our http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=3. Regarding the plot, it is worth noting that there are many sub-plots to be found on the site aside from the main overarching plot. For a decent overview of the subplots, read the http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=59 topic. Next, I recommend reading the http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=24. It isn't a long topic, but it is useful for getting a better feel for Terrene. After this reading, I recommend taking a look at some of the in-character topics around the site. This will help you learn how we typically run things, and its a lot more interesting that just reading through informational pages!

◒ creating a character

By this time you might be hankering to start creating a character, so here are the http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=58 that you'll have to keep in mind, and here is the http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=8. Oh, and before you ask, http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=29 has all the info on the Pokemon and items your character will start with, as well as instructions for your first IC topic. As far as your character's history goes, you may want to read up on what the http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=69 is like. You'll likely also want to know about the http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=1251 that we track in each character's profile. I highly recommend reading through the rest of this topic and the linked topics before joining, however!

◒ final reading assignments

Speaking of topics, you'll want to read up on our http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=33.

You'll also want to at least skim through the http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showforum=13 topics before joining (note that there are two pages of topics in that forum), and you'll definitely want to read them more thoroughly after joining, perhaps while waiting for your first character to be approved. These topics deal with anything from how to earn experience and level up to how we deal with Dragons, Psychics, Ghosts, and so forth. Don't be freaked out by the amount of information there, those topics aren't going anywhere and will always be available for you to reference.

And that just about covers the basics. There are a few more topics describing the http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showforum=11 you'll want to browse through, but other than that, we're done here. Remember, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

◒ p.s.

You might be interested to know that you can earn http://pokemonterrene.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=7 for helping out around the site. Check out that topic for more information.
