So I've been reading everything I can get my hands on regarding the theme and the culture of the game. There's a pretty significant learning curve, but so far I'm really enthusiastic about this game. It seems to be dead on what I've been looking for out of a text-based RP game for years. So, kudos and huzzah.
I've got a whole list of notes on NPC interaction, RP, tips and @notes already, but if there are any threads I should absolutely, definitely check out, please feel free to point me towards them. There's a TON to dig through.
A few questions that aren't answerable IC (as far as I can see):
I'm a little confused on how my character entered Dome. The backstory is that she was born elsewhere and drug there as a kid. Are all new characters outsiders? Children clearly exist, but the initial entrance into the game makes it feel like they are being drug in for the first time.
Any tips on not completely borking her navigation of a world she should be at least somewhat familiar with as a stumbling newb? (Let's not talk about how long I poked/examined/glowered at my cube door in an attempt to sort the lock mechanism. I'm still adjusting to mobs that respond intelligently).
What basic facts should someone whose been living in the Dome for the past decade know? The timeline exclusively? Or are there other common knowledge things she should just be aware of.
Thanks. (And extra thanks to a couple of folks who have been putting up with my stumbles and silly questions)
