You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Warning-This is unpolished and wordy you have been warned

Just to be clear if your starting in the role play server ask someone for help first, but please if you`re here your also almost certainly on the discord for the server and the tutorial channels are-*checks channels in question*-somewhat helpful and clearly I need to ask Kate to let me add a getting started guide there as well. Anyway lacking someone there to help you in person, an exercise in community building as well as instruction mind you, this guide will have to do but ask a regular to see if you did anything wrong just in case I`ll try and include a decent explanation of where you should be at the end, ask a mod or admin for help if you notice deviations.

Disclaimer-This is not a troubleshooting guide if your having issues getting the game to work it won`t help you I'm sorry I reiterate ask a mod or admin for help, preferably on the discord

Clarification - This guide is founded on the assumption that the person reading it has ZERO clue what to do and as such need to have (Nearly) everything explained to them. Despite this, it is an OVERVIEW on the bare essentials to getting started NOT an in-depth guide on everything 

-Step One- Log In Screen
Pretty self-explanatory in all honesty type in whatever name and password you like and the account will be made automatically. For example, I`ll make the account Tutorial Person but keep the password secret for now.
...I forgot to cap the screen with my user name and password on it but really you don`t need help with that anyway
Here`s the server select yes there's only one and by the Thanks Kali your the best! (she`s the server owner), press enter or the okay button and we move on to

-Step Two- Making your first Character
If you`ve ever played an RPG or MMO in your life your set move on beyond some minor details. On factions pick whichever you want Asmodian are darker and importantly they don`t start in Poeta, the public RP area more on this later unlike Elyos who are a white and do start in Poeta i recommend going with them just so that you start in the place where people are most likely to just pop up. If you pick Asmos anyway once you make your char and get in-game press to enter and type into the chat //goto Poeta if someones already there and isn`t one of the more quiet types on the server great you can get help getting started.
I`ll just go with Elys to save myself some time. In this screen simply pick whichever class you want if it has an effect on your appearance I don`t know, i`ll female artists because I want to make a childish joke that will become obnoxiously clear soon enough.
Here`s another very self-explanatory sight type your name in upper right and then go to the upper right corner to customize you chars appearance, something I'm not going to get into right now though I might ask Lou and Luney to write one up for sh**** and giggles.
(It seems i`ve reached the limit for pics per post)
Some previews of the Login screen
And here`s the char i made
Major note if you want to remake your char again you can save the appearance with a button in the lower-left corner additionally you can make a second account with the same char appearance for funsies.
Another note is that the outfit you see your char in is not the one you`ll start in.
Edit-Wait Siri is taken already bahh i`ll just go with Tutorial Lady
E2-*Deep breath*Tutorializer it is
Here`s what the character select looks like

-Step Three- Character Setup aka The main part and something i probably could have started
I would screencap what you see when you start but the game throws so much stuff the pic is too big anyway the first thing to do is mash the escape button to close all screens once your screen is clear, mashing escape might bring up the system menu just hit escape again to close it. From this point on I`ll forgo screencaps somewhat., this is simple stuff anyway
