NEW PLAYERS: HOW-TO JOIN UW
#1
Welcome to Ralinwood!

We are so happy that you have found your way here, and plan on playing this crazy fun game with us. Before you start getting overwhelmed with all of the information and the people, and the weird way we talk, just calm down and read what I have to say.


STEP 1: CREATE A FORUM ACCOUNT
The very first thing you should do if you want to start playing Underworld Ralinwood is to make a forum account (yes, for these forums). This is where you will find all of the resources you will need to being playing. You can also talk to people and ask important (or not important) questions here. When you have finished registering your forum account, give us time to activate your account. This shouldn't take more than a few hours (sorry you have to wait). We activate every account manually in order to filter out the spambots, not because we don't trust you guys.

Please include your real name, and your character name (if your account name isn't already your character name) in your signature, and add a display photo of yourself or your character.

STEP 2: POST/ASK ALL THE QUESTIONS
Once your forum account is active you are welcome to post on all of the OOG (Out of Game) forums. This is best place to get to know people. Say hi, tell us a bit about yourself, I promise we wont bite. In fact our community LOVES to help new players.

Or message our REAL LIVE New Player Liaisions! They are eager and willing to help you out and answer all your questions! Check them out here! Or email them at npl@underworldralinwood.ca.

STEP 3: BUILD YOUR CHARACTER
Ok, now that we have got to know you OOG, you can start thinking about your character. Take a look at our Core Rulebook. This is where you will find all of the information needed to make your character.

STEP 4: CREATE YOUR CHARACTER - THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP
Once you have chosen what type of character you want to play you will send this information over to logistics@underworldralinwood.ca. You will send them an email with the following information:
  • Player Name: (Your real, legal name)
  • Brought by: (if anyone referred you to Underworld Ralinwood)
  • Character Name:
  • True Name: (See page 11 in the Core Rulebook)
  • Race:
  • Class:
When our Logistics receives your email, they will create a Database account for you. This is where you can view your character and add your characters skills during Prelog[/url].

Costs*:
You first game is free!

After that, you pay $15 to unlock your character (so you can apply blankets and update it yourself in the future).

One-day events are normally $35
Three-day events are normally $45
Four-day (double blanket) events are normally $50

*Costs for the 2018 season. Subject to change so please check each event invite!

STEP 5: PRELOGGING, UPDATING AND MANAGING YOUR CHARACTER 
Do you have a Database account? (See step above) Have you checked? Go check, I'll wait........

STEP 6: WRITE A BACKSTORY

Ok! So now that you have a Database account with your registered character, the next thing you should be doing is thinking about your characters backstory. A great resource you can use for writing your backstory is our [url=http://underworldlarp.wikidot.com/]Wiki
. It is currently being updated, but all of the information in here will help, I promise.

When you have read the How To and the Wiki, you can send your character backstory to backstories@underworldralinwood.ca.

When you have sent your backstory in it will go through a vetting process. If there are any changes we feel need to be made, you will receive an email where we will suggest changes. 

When we have decided that your backstory is good and is officially approved we will change your Character sheet in the Database from History Approved: False, to History Approved: True. Keep checking back to your Character sheet to see if your history has been approved. If it still read False, it means we are still deliberating. This process can take a few hours to a few days. Be patient, you're almost done.

STEP 7: TIME TO PLAY!!
Alright, so lets recap, you now have a Forum account, a Database account with your new character in there, AND you have just had your backstory approved. AMAZING!

You are now ready to play events and roleplay on our IG (In Game) forums as your character.
