    Hello and welcome to Fairy Tail, below is a simple guide to what you should do and how you should do it. Now remember this is a small guide and is only here to help thus don’t take it to heart if you can’t seem to get one done quickly, Also i suggest that instead of clicking the links that you right click and open a new tab so you don't have to backpedal to this page a billion times.

    First:
    First: If you want you can introduce yourself in our introductions board, here you can meet a few people and introduce yourself. This is where you also get to know how to make posts and topics if you are new to forums.
    Introductions/Farewells [link]

    How to make a topic.:

    To the right of the page, towards the topic click on the 'new topic' button.





    Put the title of your topic in where it says one, most people don't use description so you can ignore that for now.
    Part two is where you can write up your messages. On this site we use html and bbcode, if you want to use templates in the future.
    Once you've finished go down to the bottom of the page and you can preview or post.


    Second:
    Second: All of the rules are in one board, they're easy to find and understand. I recommend looking at the Code of conduct and the Basic rules first to familiarize yourself with the workings of the site. You'll also need to go here when you create magic, weapons and items.
    General rules [link]

    Before you create your character it's best to roll a lineage, this is similar to a bloodline and grants a character abilities. You can roll three dice and choose one from them that you want.
    The Sacred Shrine [Link] has three areas.
    The Sacred Altar - is where dead characters can be resurrected
    The Ancient One - is where you roll for your lineage
    The Sacred Library - is where descriptions of the lineages are kept.

    Third:
    Third: Now you can roll your lineage, go to The ancient one [Link]. The first post of the thread has instructions too but I'll tell you here, you need to copy and paste the template from the first post into the reply box and add in your username. Underneath the text box is dice roll# 1, select the lineage dice.
    From there you can change the dice rolls to 3. Post, and the npc will reply with 3 lineages you can choose from. Leave this tab open we'll come back to it later.


    Now you have three lineage rolls to choose from, it may take a little work to find them. In the sacred library board there are four topics called The Fallen, The Beast, The Light and The Being. Your lineages will be in one of these, its easiest to use ctrl-f and search the names of your lineage rolls.
    After reading the descriptions and perks you choose one of the three and then go back to your post where you rolled and edit in your choice where it says 'Lineage:'

    Fourth:
    Fourth: Now you can start creating your character, you go to the 'WIP characters' board [click], you make a new topic in the board and use this template to create your character.
    The template:

    Code:
    [b]Name:[/b] (Name your character)
    [b]Gender:[/b] (Male or Female)
    [b]Age:[/b] (How old is your character)

    After you have finished post the topic and link your finished character in the Character approval thread [link]
    If you join the discord ask about getting added to your guild discord server as well.

    Fifth:
    Fifth: Now you have a character and a lineage you can start on your magic. Magic here is very flexible so you can be creative. You can take non-combat jobs without magic or a weapon so if you want to take a break from magic creation you can start rping a D rank job.
    It's important to keep the rules in mind, keep the magic and spell rules [click] open in another tab as you work on your wip magic, like character creation open a new topic and use the code below.

    Magic is quite broad and you can do anything as long as you follow the rules.

    Once you've finished the magic just take the link and put it in the primary magic approval thread [link], don't worry if creating or grading of magic takes a few days, as it can get complex.

    Sixth:
    Sixth; Jobs and socials
    Your character gets stronger by gaining exp then ranking up. Jobs and events give you exp, you can solo missions of your rank or do jobs with partners to find partners and mentors you can post in the Wanted Ads section or in discord. The jobs board [click], houses all the jobs from D rank to 100 year jobs. At D rank you can solo D rank jobs, or choose a job that you're able to take, copy the link and go to the Sign up for jobs [click]. Copy and fill out the template, once a staff approves you can start the job.

    Make a new topic in the sub forum location which is specified in the job, copy and paste or link the job information in your post. Once you've finished the job you go to the Ending A Job [link] topic and fill out the form. Staff will approve it, add your exp and jewel reward.

    More detailed information is in the Job/Mentor Rules [click], so take a quick look through that. Remember that as long as you complete the job you get the reward, but you can complete the job however creatively you wish.
