So, you've discovered us here on of Witches && Wizards, and are eager to get started with us! And we're thrilled to have you. But you're uncertain... 'what do I do first?' A good question, one [many people find confusifying] and this thread intends to help you out on! So first things first, and perhaps the most important of all: read the rules
! Do you meet the qualifications we call for? Can you deal with our guidelines? Then good. You're ready to move on!
Now, why not take a look at our storyline
? The main board storyline, as well as our five subplots, are all listed at the above thread for your convienence. Take a look, read over them, and decided if any of the plots really stick out to you as something you might like to participate in. This will help you decide on a character. (If the Shiz plot sticks out as something interesting, join as a character or a teacher. If the Animals are your liking, join as a talking creature, etc.) In addition, if you're interested in taking on a canon character, for a few of them we have story threads
, so that you can see how we have mixed the different canons (books and musical) to create one AU canon!
It's time to make a decision: canon or original? If you're seeking to make a canon, check out the canon list
to see who we have, and who we need. Keep in mind that we accept characters that aren't on the list, as most Oz creatures from both the Baum and Maguire books will be accepted, so long as they aren't dead.(ie: Nessarose, etc. Also, keep in mind that we take place before Son Of A Witch, and while we do take some of its events and have used them in our canon, for the most part, we are not using the book. So if you choose to use characters from it, be ready to change them up to fit the new canon!)
And now its time to create your profile. Both canons and originals use the same application form
, so copy/paste it and begin working on it in the Book of Records section of the forum! Your application is our way of seeing a) if you meet our literacy qualifications and b) if you know your (canon) character well enough. So do your best on it, impress us! ;) We will try to get to them as soon as possible to review them.
That's about it. If you have any further questions regarding joining up and starting out here on of Witches && Wizards, feel free to drop me a PM, or an email, or grab me on the c-box if I'm online. Good luck with your application, and welcome to the forum!
