Beginner's Guide and Rules [4-14-2012]

Ok here's how it works. Because of spammers you can see one thread. We did have the board open but it got flooded with spam. So unless you ask us, or post three times, this is all you're ever going to see. It sucks, but it contains the spammers. So post something, say hello, let us know you're here and we'll bump you up to the big board. If you're not a spammer.

Beginner's Guide and Rules [4-14-2012]

Postby Estella » Wed Apr 11, 2012 8:49 pm

Welcome to Darkness Falls! Here you will find a compilation of the rules and helpful information about the forum, character creation and getting started in the grid as well as useful links.

Newly added to the Beginner's Guide is the Site Map a compilation of what board is where and what they're for to help new arrivals, and old, find their way about the place.
[Thank you to my secret contributor]

Rules
Grid Game Information
Here is the creator’s very own description of Darkness Falls, as found Here
Daedra wrote:tl;dr - you're in a modern American city in which the power of magic exists and creatures from other worlds can enter. The magic lets you change shape and steal life from other beings. The monsters generally try to eat you.

The city is ruled by occult factions. You can progress without them but they've got things pretty much sewn up between them - lone wolves will not find it easy in Darkness Falls. Not impossible, but not easy.

You can play in the city very happily, but most of the rewards lie beyond.

Follow the tutorial - it has cookies!
Start hunting on Moon Street. Don't be afraid to run away.
Say hello on the board. I've never seen a question asked there go unanswered.


==========================================


Darkness Falls is a modern horror rpg. The city itself is no different to any other US city in decline, the people walking its streets are no different to the people walking your city right now.

For the most part. Some are different. Some have a gift, or a curse, and the story of Darkness Falls is the story of how they come to terms with that curse, and the part they take in the battle between the worlds of life and death.

The Rules of The Site. [As Found Here]

1. Everyone is welcome. If you get your panties in a twist because someone else is here then that's your problem, not theirs. And it's certainly not ours.

2. Don't be a dick.

3. Have fun.

4. That's it.

ok no it isn't:

5. Be 17 or over; there's sexual stuff on the boards. You're fabulous and all but if we find out you're under 17 we'll suspend your account until you're over.

6. No more than two different accounts in any one gang or coven at any one time. This allows for a main character and one alternative character (alt).

Registrations Requirements [As found Here]
Holly wrote:New Board Registration Requirements

We've made a change to the board registration that now requires a minimum of 3 posts in the Welcome area before a newly registered person will see all of the main board. This is one of the ways that we use to prevent those little buggers, spambots/spammers/etc, from making annoying posts on our board.

I know we have quite a few players who, like myself, enjoy writing so much that we create rp alts and this is going to be an annoyance. So for those, if you would like, simply PM the following information to Holly or Pete and a manual override can be done. (Please see below regarding Daedra)

  • Main Character Name
  • Alt Character Name

It would be lovely if when you send the PM, that it be sent to only one Admin with the others BCC'd so that we all know what's going on. Also, if this could be done in a group if you plan more than one alt. ^.^

A Quick Note About Daedra

Ged aka Daedra our cookie and beer loving coder genius type awesomesauce dude will be without us as he heads off to work. (See his post here)
