Hi there, stranger! Welcome to Thorns: Uprising!
As you may already know, Thorns is a play-by-post forum RPG with an emphasis on creative writing, story and character development, and community. And as you can probably see from the amount of links on the side bar, there is a LOT of information in this wiki.
But fear not! We have created this handy little guide for starting out in the game.
- About the Game is an introduction to the game's story. It talks about the different races, locations and major plot lines of the game, and will help you decide what kind of character you want to play. However, this alone is not enough information to make your character. There are lots of links here to pages that will help you with whatever you decide.
- Character Creation Guide is a guide to creating your first character sheet. It will explain the different parts of a sheet, as well as tips for what will make a good sheet.
- Rules for Play is a general guide to the rules of the game.
This is the bare minimum; feel free to read as much of the wiki as you want to. If you look to your left, you will see a sidebar with a lot of little links. Click those to explore topics. If you have a question, it will probably be answered there. If not, you can always contact one of your friendly neighbourhood mods.
The most important thing at this point is: don't be intimidated! This might seem like a whole lot of information to absorb, but if you take your time, you will probably find that you get through it quicker than expected. If you're worried you don't understand something, feel free to PM a moderator on the forums or come visit us in Discord. And don't worry too much about fitting in. This is a welcoming, friendly little community.
