Post Sanctioning Instructions

Once you have received your Mechanics and Story Stamps your application will be moved to a subforum in the Sphere you selected in on your character sheet. This is your Personal Forum and everything in it can be seen only by you and the GM Team.

Once this is done there are three threads that you will need to create so that the GM Team can interact with you.

  1. Weekly Actions
    1. This is where you will post your FBAs1)
  2. Requests
    1. this is where you will spend your XP, request adjustments to your sheet, make lifestyle purchases, Etc.
  3. Crafting
    1. This is where you build things, write letters, create art, Etc.

Each of these will be monitored by the GM Team and each has certain protocols in place to make them easier for the GMs to handle. You may find more information on these protocols on the forums or by asking fellow players.

Make a FBA thread

In your personal forum create a thread named 'Your_Name's Thread Actions'
Copy/Paste the following to be your first post:

[b][u]Forum Based Actions are due the on first day (Sunday) of the week[/u][/b]

[size=large]FBA Template[/size]

[b[size=Medium]Season x, Week y[/size][/b]
[b]GM: [Sphere or specific GM running the plot or NPC; Gentry;][/b]

[b]Purpose[/b]:

*Add the decription of you action and make any rolls you feel relevant here*


If you aren't sure which GM to tag for an FBA, here's some pointers:
[list]
[*]Any actions dealing with heimin in the colony go to your Sphere GM's or Chuhai. 
[*]Any actions dealing with marriages go to GM Saelvarath. (If it involves an NPC, tag the GM that runs them in addition for collab power!)
[*]Any actions that involve funky new wildlife need to be run by Matsu Nishiura or the Exploration GM who introduced them.
[*]If you are trying to follow up information after a scene that a GM ran, tag the GM who ran the scene.
[*]If you are trying to deal with an NPC, tag the GM who runs them. the [url=http://five-rings-online.com/wiki/doku.php?id=npc:npcs]NPC Wiki[/url] will say who runs them
[*]If you are so far outside the box you don't even know what your action falls under, tag Unknown (and the Threadies and GM team will try to figure it out)
[/list]
