• Welcome to this new upgrade of the site. We are now on a totally different software platform. Many things will be different, and bugs are expected. Certain areas (like downloads and reviews) will take longer to import. As always, please use the Meta Forum for site queries or bug reports. Note that we (the mods and admins) are also learning the new software.

D&D Necromanced 'New Welcome Thread'

So apparently through the fortune of the gods, keen personal insight, or dumb luck I saved the code to the new welcome thread before it was eaten by The Nothing.... HUZZAH!

Welcome to LPF (Living Pathfinder) here at www.enworld.org! We are a sandbox community of online play-by-post gamers that mechanically uses the Pathfinder roleplaying system, but create our own homebrew non-Golarian campaign content.

First, if you have any questions feel free to privately message any of our community judges if you have any questions or concerns. They are (in alphabetical order):

@Aura, @ealt, @FrancisJohn, @GlassEye, @KahlessNestor, @Mowgli, @perrinmiller.

Please thoroughly peruse the contents in this thread (in order might be best) to help you get started in joining our little home on this corner of the interwebs!

[sblock=Registration Information]
So to get started, the first things you need to do is register here at Living Pathfinder and on the LPF Wiki (it's at the top right corner of both sites..... 'register'). We use enworld for our forum and game threads, and the wikia for all world content and character sheets.

Pro Tip: Always login to the wikia as ads can be rather burdensome otherwise.
Pro Tip: You have to post at least 10 times before you are allowed to include a link in your posts (anti-spam stuff). A great way to build your post count is to introduce yourself in the General Discussion thread. Plus, once there if you need help you can start asking questions and I'm sure someone will be glad to answer.

If you want a more detailed overview of how we work, click here: LPF Introduction. Here are some other threads on how PbP (play-by-post) works in general: PbP for Dummies and
PbP FAQ.

But for now, next up: making a character!
[/sblock]

[sblock=Creating a Character]
This is important! Detailed instructions on how on Creating a Character for our world can be found on the wiki. Now, for the technical web aspects:

1. Make a new page on the wiki (top right corner: 'Contribute' then 'Add a Page')

2. Title it: Character Name (Player Name)

3. Copy/Paste the entire code from one of the following spoiler blocks. There are two options for your character sheet... one is a newer advanced version and the other is a more simple standard version.

Pro tip: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO USE THE SOURCE EDITOR, NOT THE VISUAL EDITOR for modifying the code (You can click on the tabs or drop-down menus to change this).
Pro Tip: The advanced sheet has greater visual appeal on desktop computers, but doesn't translate well on the phone. The coding work is a bit heavier on the advanced, but if that's your thing, we say go for it. If short and sweet character sheets are more your thing, we love the standard ones too.

4. You have to upload a picture file to the wiki to (just like you made a new page), and reference the file name in the sheet code where noted. (Same for your familiar too if you'd like.)

5. Provide a link (or tell us where to look if you can't post links yet) to your new exciting character sheet in the Character Submission Thread. Two approvals (one judge, one not) are needed to begin searching for an adventure.

Pro Tip: Characters won't be considered without the appearance, demeanor, and a brief background completed. If you might have to explore the Geography Wiki a bit to get properly acquainted with our world.

Here are two example characters using the Advanced Sheet and Standard Sheet

On to the next step!

[sblock=Finding an Adventure]
Once your character is approved ready to go, please make your way over to the thread The Dunn Wright Inn. The DWI is a meeting place of adventurers of all levels where they socialize and wait for adventures. There you can make your first IC (in-character) post. Once a GM (game master) is ready, they will actively recruit you into a game and you will be on your merry way. More information on it can be found on the wiki.

Pro Tip: If this is your first time playing a PbP (play-by-post) RPG, you have to drastically alter your expections for how the game is paced. Compared to table top gaming, playing online moves at glacial speeds. For example, an entire round of combat may take an entire week. A few days may go by with no activity. If you go into these games knowing what to expect as far as pacing, the chance of being disappointed is greatly reduced.
Pro Tip: All adventures typically start in the merchant city of Venza, City of Glass. It is located in the Landadel Baronies. It might be worthwhile to click around the wiki a bit just get at least a cursory familiarity.

To get a feel for how our games are currently running, check out the most recent game threads on our Adventure Timeline. Posting in those threads are only for those in that game, so for those reading this they are read only.

[/sblock]

[sblock=Posting Standards and Proper Etiquette]
Once you are in a game, each GM has their own set of posting standards. Here are some of the most common ones:

When you post in an IC (in character) thread, you need to make sure your post conforms to certain standards. Pick one color for things your character says outloud. Make sure you 'bold' the text and change the color of it. For inner thoughts meant for only your character to think, use the same color but change the text to 'italics'. A headshot picture should be included as well.

Pro Tip: The 'Go Advanced' button when you reply gives you much greater control over your editing capabilities.
Pro Tip: In Advanced editing mode the top left button let's you switch between the Source and Visual editors.

You will also have to provide a spoiler block that summarizes the mechanics of your turn, and another one that provides MiniStats. MiniStats are a short summary of your character's stats. See below for a blank code template for you to copy/paste for your IC posts.

[sblock=Post Template]

[sblock=Rolling Dice]
We use either the in-house dice roller or typically the roller from Coyote Code Dice Roller. For the Coyote roller, you would just link to your results. For the in-house roller, you would type the following:

[roll=Long Sword vs. Goblin]1d20+5[/roll]
[roll=Long Sword Damage]1d8+2[/roll]
[/sblock]

Examples of some great posts can be found: here, here, and here.

Pro Tip: All player-vs-player actions will not be tolerated under any circumstances.
Pro Tip: Another way to get started with your first post is to 'reply with quote' to someone with nice formatting who has posted in front of you. Change everything that you need to personalize it to your own information. DON'T FORGET TO DELETE THE 'QUOTE' TAGS AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF THE POST. Once you are satisfied, repeat this process for yourself every time you post IC (in-character).
Pro Tip: If you post more frequently from mobile/tablet devices, you may want simplify some of the coding of your post.
Pro Tip: Always remember RULE 1! The GM has final say. If you have a concern, please message the GM and I am sure they will happy to address the situation (if not for the current situation, then perhaps next time). We are all human, but they are in charge.
[/sblock]

[sblock=Between Adventures]
Two main things happen in between adventures: going shopping for new gear and levelling up your character.

Buying new equipment

All mundane non-magical equipment can be found in a variety shops located on Arcane Row in Venza, but all magic items can be found at The Mystic Pearl. The rules for purchasing and selling items can be found in that thread.

Leveling Up

Once a GM says your character gained enough experience for gaining a level, please make the appropriate changes to your character sheet on the wiki. Once complete, your character sheet needs to be checked by a judge or a GM for approval. Please provide a link to it in the Character Level Up Approval thread.

[/sblock]

[sblock=How to Become Even More Involved!]

If you can't get enough LPF in your life, there are several ways you can become even more active in our community.

1. Become a GM. Details on that process can be found here: Submitting an Adventure Here is a link to a helpful thread created by perrinmiller. GM Workshop Series

2. Make an additional character. More information can be found here: Additional Characters

3. Proposals for new content. If there is certain pathfinder content, such as a new races, classes, religions, cities, etc., that you want to incorporate, you have to submit it for approval in a new thread. Please link to the rulebook, and provide a summary of the mechanics and how it fits into our campaign. The more details the better.

[sblock=Compilation of Pro Tips]
Pro Tip: Always login to the wikia as ads can be rather burdensome otherwise.
Pro Tip: You have to post at least 10 times before you are allowed to include a link in your posts (anti-spam stuff). A great way to build your post count is to introduce yourself in the General Discussion thread. Plus, once there if you need help you can start asking questions and I'm sure someone will be glad to answer.
Pro tip: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO USE THE SOURCE EDITOR, NOT THE VISUAL EDITOR for modifying the code (You can click on the tabs or drop-down menus to change this).
Pro Tip: The advanced sheet has greater visual appeal on desktop computers, but doesn't translate well on the phone. The coding work is a bit heavier on the advanced, but if that's your thing, we say go for it. If short and sweet character sheets are more your thing, we love the standard ones too.
Pro Tip: Characters won't be considered without the appearance, demeanor, and a brief background completed. If you might have to explore the Geography Wiki a bit to get properly acquainted with our world.

Sorry, I've been busy with family stuff and some travel. I hope to look it over this week when I get caught up with everything.
