Pathfinder Role-playing Game Start Guide
To start participating in Play by Post Pathfinder in the Member Wars Board you need to follow the below steps:
1. Join the Community
Membership is free! Ensure you read the Registration rules as our Community is diligently moderated to cater for a more cultured participant. Potential Players who take our Constructive Posting Policy lightly find their accounts terminated. .
2. Validate your Email
There is a link in your Registration Email (The one you Registered with) that must be clicked. If you did not get the Email it may have gone to your Spam / Junk folder. Optional: Please check there and use this tip to make sure our Emails go to your Inbox next time: .
3. Post your Introduction
A couple of lines about yourself (No confidential or contact info please) and your purpose for joining. Post Your Introduction. Once posted it needs to approved first before being made public. Sorry for this extra step but it protects the Community from spammers and malicious advertizes.
4. Decide which Dungeon Master's Game you will join
Each Dungeon Master has their own rules and requirements for Players. See Member Wars or go directly to the section and look for the Threads that talk about "Character Creation". If the Thread is Closed / Locked it means that Dungeon Master is not accepting any more Characters. If it is open then use the "Create Role-playing Game Character" Button at the top of the page. You will then be able to establish your Character and the necessary fields to hold player information. Let the GM know about your Character in the same Thread.
5. Don't become lost or start talking to yourself
If you do not see an available Role-playing Game then you have many other options as Pathfinder is NOT the only Role-playing Game we run. You can also start your own! See: How To Find The Role-playing Game That Fits Me?
6. Create your Pathfinder Character
You will need to roll dice using the Pathfinder rule book most of which can be downloaded for free via Piazo. Dungeon Masters usually do help Players create their Characters, please follow their instructions.
7. Post your Character for Approval
Look for the "Characters" Thread of the Dungeon Master you selected and place your character there. The Dungeon Master will notify you if your character is approved and what to do next.
