And with that, we're off!

I shall look forward to your intro posts!

Some notes about your intro posts, writing, and posties in general ^^

Your Intro Posts

So intro posts will be your chance to introduce your characters to the world and to the rest of us. that means backstory, flashbacks, whatever you'd like, but your intro post will most likely end right as your character gets to Lux academy. Railyn's "introduction" is going to be split in two posts as it became longer than I anticipated. But, his introduction will end right as he enters Lux Academy.

So, for now, none to little collaboration. Your intro posts are all about your characters ^^

Post Lengths

Speaking of post lengths, I wanted to let you know my anticipations about writing in this roleplay! For those of you who have been in a roleplay of mine, this will be familiar, but most of you are new, so:

As a general note, I'd really like to see every post be at least 750 words, as that's a good minimum length for good progression in my opinion. Technically, there are no limits to the length of your posts, but my thought process is this: If your posts gets past around 3k words, it's probably best to split it up so the page for Lux Academy doesn't get horribly long (Go check this out for what I'm talking about). Also, longer posts take longer to write, so if your scene that you're thinking of gets too long, it might be best to split the scene and allow for others to write sooner rather than later.

Collaboration

I love collaboration, and it is a huge emphasis of my roleplays, sooo after the intro posts, collaborate! Get your characters interacting :P

After a LOT OF STRUGGLE there is a visual in Thane's character profile now lol.

And Omni, all that info looks great. How did I know your reference for length was gonna be Aether's Heart XD *flashbacks of me trying to read all of that*

Same :')

Alsoooo, there's a cool thing in the group pad where you can write how your character will probably react to everyone else's characters. It helps to get your thoughts organized, get in the brain of your character, and also helps everyone figure out where they're standing! It's also a great resource for people to refer to later on, so it'd be cool if people could fill those out :]

Oh, @SilverNight , your post reminded me that your character is affiliated with a political leader/affluent family, which is also the case for Ezra, so I do believe that it's not impossible that they would have met in the past. Do you want to establish any kind of familiarity between them or nah?
