Welcome to Roleplayerguild. We're thrilled to have you here! This Guide is geared towards those who are not only new to the site but to post-by-post RP'ing. But it is also useful to those who just want a quick guide to the site.

About the Guild:
The New Guild was established January 16th, 2014. This was after the Old Guild (the former site) crashed/ was erased. It's a very long story, and if you'd like to read up on it, click here. The reason the Guild now looks like it does, is because Mahz, our admin, started to rebuild the site from nothing. He codes it himself instead of relying upon prefabricated sites. Because of that, it is still a work in progress.

Features of the Guild:
Since Mahz has been working on rebuilding the site since the re-founding, there has been a lack of features. Mahz doesn't get paid for this, and does it on his free time. Ellri, ever helpful, has been maintaing a Planned Features and Common suggestions. So if you ever wonder what's on the docket for new things, check it out. It gets updated quite often with new ideas suggested by people just like you. If you'd like to keep up to date, Mahz's Dev Journal updates the guild on newly implemented updates.

Helpful Things to Read:
I'd suggest 1000% to read all the stickied threads.
A New User's Guide to the Guild
Fundamental Rules of the Guild
Moderation Policy Sitewide
Moderation Policy in the RP Sections
Moderation Policy in Spam
Moderation Policy in the Off-Topic Sections
Moderation Policy for Forum Contests
Reporting Incidents to the Moderators

Introduce Yourself:
New to RPGuild? Go say hello! We don't have an official greeting committee, instead everyone pitches in. Sometimes we don't get around to greeting every one. Which is a shame, but don't take it personally. We try our hardest to make everyone feel welcome.












Think I missing something?
Have a question you want in the FAQ?
Let me know. I'd love some feedback <3

+1. Good guide and I'm tempted to sub this and use it for linking to new folks when it's done.

+1 more for having my favorite RP in an example image.

@ArenaSnowWell, I think I've covered everything. So if you wanted to know when it was done, it's done.

(Except for the FAQ, but I have nothing to put there until I get questions. Or I decide to surf the guild for questions to add... which I don't know if I'm going to do yet.)

There are no set basic rules. There are some guides to help you create a character. And character sheets.

If you want to know if Mary-Sues are acceptable anywhere. I'd say, 99% of the time, they are not. However I have seen the odd RP where Mary/gary sues are desired. But this is not the norm.

Making a Character:
Since there are good guides out there already done, just follow any of the links below.

I hope this helped.

Welcome to Roleplayerguild. We're thrilled to have you here! As it has recently come to my attention that there is no guide for new users for the guild.

Gm's around here are typically pretty good about shutting them down.

And honestly;

This guide's a little more inclusive, up to date and offers a Q&A.

Updated 5/23/16 with the Dice/Campaign Feature, Image Uploading and the new Gender option on your Profile.

Also did a few house keeping items to keep everything polished and looking nice.
