We're not going to lie, Mystical Souls is a complex world with a lot of moving parts and as much as we try to make everything neat, it certainly won't work for everyone. So I've compiled a neat list of things for you to do first. Of course, if something isn't clear from the readings, please pm a staff member and we'll answer you as promptly as possible.[break][break][break]
[attr="class","sub-text"]Step one: reading
We're a fantasy world so yes, there's some reading to do, but we hope you have fun imagining the world as we see it. But first, let's go over the essentials.[break][break]
We recommend reading the Timeline alongside the Plot since it clarifies when things happened chronologically. This is also great for figuring out how old you can make a particular character. (Ex. Vampires came to be in year 630 and it's currently year 6500, meaning if your vampire is older than 5870 years then something is wrong.)
Now that we've gotten past that, here's the backbone of Pavane. [break][break]
HUMANS (Yes, they're extinct but they paved the way for three other races and messed up another two so it's still worth a read)
[attr="class","sub-text"]Step two: making a character
[attr="class","temp-text"] Whew! That's quite a few races, huh? After reading through those, it's time to start your application. Head over to FACE CLAIMS to reserve your character and be sure to read the first post since it's pretty important. Then head over to the New Faces board and into our IDENTIFICATION THREAD. There you will find our application along with some instructions, please read the first post as it tells you what to title your thread and what races we are currently accepting. If the thread title is not as it should be, a staff member will not fix it for you and your character will be pended until it is fixed barring any other issues. Post your application in the Pending board.[break][break]
It's already stated in the rules but please try your best to make a complex character with a proper background and connection. It helps other roleplayers understand who they are and how to properly interact with them.[break][break]
Once you've created your child/baby/honeysugar, whatever you'd like to call them, let us staff members know in the NOTIFICATION THREAD. Please don't hassle us in the Discord to reply and look over it five minutes after you've posted it. Admins are much more likely to take their time the more we're pestered. [break][break]
If there's anything wrong your application, it will stay in pending and we'll reply to the thread with what needs to be changed. This includes but is not limited to: [break][break]
Your abilities are too op in general
Your halfling is stronger than their combination should be
You're a human or Ghoul they're extinct!
You've lived too long for your race
Your personality is contradictory and/or doesn't make sense
If everything is well, we'll give you a congratulations for being accepted post, move your application to the right subboard in our Citizen Identification board, and you're almost ready to get started[break][break]
Make sure to post in the FACE CLAIMS if you forgot to earlier and head over to the DIRECTORY LIST to get added. The directory is a very convenient place to see all the characters of the site and who they belong to. No need to search through
[attr="class","temp-text"]Now that you have a character all ready and setup, head over to the MEETINGS board and post a plotter. You can find so many plotter templates over at GANGNAM STYLE, WICKED WONDERLAND, and PIXEL PERFECT. There are plenty of other resource sites out there for you to choose from. Drop in on someone's plotter and respond, make friends, make connections, have fun![break][break]
If you feel that you have a hang for the plot, the races, and want to get even more involved drop in on our CANONS thread and see if there are any spots that you might be interested in. Heck, pm a staff member with an idea and we'll talk about it.[break][break]
Finally, be certain to keep up with all of the Closing Statements from the Council Hall roleplays. Here, new rules and directions for the city of Pavane may be formed over time. [break][break]
That's about all I have for you folks. I know this was probably long but I figured thorough was better than not. Let us know in the pms if you found anything lacking and we'll try to address it.
Living in a dystopian society, seven mystic races are trapped due to their own selfishness. Tensions rise between the races and the different social classes, leading up to the constant struggle for power, with no end in sight.
4/11 - With the Ghoul Purge complete, Pavane's fear shifts from the goddesses towards the Council. Check out the aftermath here to get an understanding of the current situation in the plot.
