~*~ Making and Using Character Images ~*~

Character avatars in chat can be 375 by 325 (or 325 by 375, it's up to you!) max. Images can be smaller than this, but not larger. If you can not make images or do not have a editing program you can post a request to members of the art guild and they will gladly make one for you!

If you are thinking of using a particular actor/actress, you might want to check the listing to be sure that the person is not already in use. This avoids any confusion between players both IC and OOC.

You may also have banners to use on the boards. These banners should be no larger than 400 pixels wide by 150 high.

**NOTE**
Any images considered to be pornographic or offensive will be removed.
If a mod or admin tells you that you need to change your image, please be courteous and remove the image BEFORE finding a replacement

Seasonal Changes
Winter - The sun sets early now, making the long nights a paradise for vampires and other creatures of the dark. Snowfall is common, and the temperatures are chilly, so make sure to bundle up before venturing outside! 
Sunset: Sunset is around 4pm, so get all your errands done early, you dont want to be out in the dark.

Winter Festival Celebration- MONDAY
Hello all! If you thought you missed the party, worry not! There were sudden scheduling conflicts with many people that night, so we've decided to push it back.
Instead, we'll be hosting the Winter Festival on Monday, December 30th! Festivities will start between 7 and 7:30 pm EST, and we'll be offering out gifts to those who can make it. We'll also have voting on who can make the best Christmas/Yule/Winter character avatar, with gold prizes. Good luck, and we hope to see you then!

New Dragon Marshal
Congratulations to Mikael, who has been promoted to lead our air forces as the new Dragon Marshal!
This position requires strength, patience, and wisdom, and we are sure the realm will be even more safe under his watch.

New Chat Update
New chat is making progress! We have most of the systems and commands in, with a few new surprises. There are still a few arcs left to do (ie, Realm Mail, Transactions, and a few other features) that we're working on. ALL donations right now are going towards covering the server and programmer costs for development. Additionally, we have a new segment on the forums for newchat discussions and input =)

Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!
The Phoenix staff would like to wish everyone a merry time during the holiday season! For any and all members who might be travelling, please travel safe, and enjoy the time spent with family and friends. We also want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, and that 2014 will bring more fun, excitement, and stories for everyone.

NOTE-

The yule ball, originally scheduled for tonight, is being postponed until after Christmas. Turns out a lot of us couldn't make it on tonight (and I'm still at work).

We'll keep everyone updated, and be sure to give out good gifts for attendees!  :)

The jobs list is constantly being updated with new and taken positions. If you're in need of a job, check the Employment thread to see what positions are open. This month we have a few important titles that are available-
--TavernKeeper: The Emerald Inn is the largest tavern in Phoenix, and is in need of someone to provide food and drink to customers, oversee hiring/firing bartenders and barmaids, and offer a place of employment for local musicians.
--Steward: The Steward helps to manage local events in Phoenix, such as festivals and royal parties. This includes making room banners and backgrounds for celebrations, planning contests, and helping to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

Library:
Your local library is now open, and in need of submissions! Characters are welcome to write books for the library, detailing histories, stories, myths, and more. Each submission will earn you gold. Please be sure that works are original, or- if necessary- that you cite your sources. Our local librarian, Aubri, will help keep them organized.

New Chat:
We are making progress on new chat!
Because of this, some things may be getting edited and adjusted in the current chat as we try new things and rearrange some code. When we get a bit closer to opening chat, we'll be doing some player surveys to get feedback on features and more.
For now though, please consider donating! Your gifts will go towards covering programmer costs, as well as cover a new (and better!) server. Thank you to everyone who has helped us out so far =)

Magic Badges:
Due to a recent change made by Queen Morgan to the laws in Phoenix, Magic Badges are no longer required by anyone to practice magic in Phoenix. Hurrah!

Trickster's Ball:
Don't forget! The Trickster's ball will be held the evening of Monday, October 28th. Bring your masks and costumes, as we'll be giving away prizes and event items that night! There will also be a special unveiling..


Character Awards:
We're at that time of the year again- Character Awards! Please review the list of character awards, and RM your votes to Alexander. Votes should be submitted before Thursday, November 7th. You can find the full list of awards here: http://phoenixlegend.net/chawards.php


Tournament Results:
After several exciting battles, we finally have our winner for the Knight's tournament! Many battles were close- especially the final round!- and we applaud everyone who participated.
We would like to honor the Realm's new Knight, Sir John, with an official ceremony. The ceremony will be held next Thursday, October 31st in the Throne Room. But wait- there's more! Because of Phae's excellent and comparable skills, we have decided to award her the open Captain's position, and hope that she will continue to protect the Kingdom for years to come.


Leadership Positions:
Lately we have been trying to expand on available positions, and have done a bit of shuffling as well. We have new Royals, a new Knight, a new Captain, a new Priestess... and we're looking to fill more spots!
As Corvus's player is frequently busy with Administration duties and other characters, we want to offer the chance for a new Warlord to take over. This can be a new character or old. Give us some ideas! All we ask is that you be an active member of chat =) If you are interested, please message either Alexander, Corvus, or Morgan!


Library:
We will be starting the library very soon! The Library, located in the University section of the boards, will be a place were all members of chat can write "books" (in the form of individual threads) that would be accessible in the castle's library. Each book written will be reviewed for content and quality, and the author will be paid for his or her contributions.
Please make sure everything is your OWN work, and not copied text! You can use other sites for reference information if needed, for example- when writing a book on herbs found in Phoenix or elsewhere- but please link the sites you referenced. Aubri will be making a post very soon with more detailed information!


VIP Giveaway:
Keep your eye on the forums for an announcement over a VIP account giveaway! We are still working out details, but we'll let you know soon.


NEW CHAT:
Don't forget that all VIP and Gold purchases are now being stored away to save for a NEW chat! Also, consider making a plain ol' donation and help us to get our new chat all the sooner.

Site Information / Phoenix Realm Help & FAQ
« Last post by Elena on September 19, 2015, 12:48:06 AM »
What is this site?
We are a role play chat, similar to games like Dungeons & Dragons (but without stats/dice) where you develop your characters and stories by playing them out. You create your character, pick a race, find a job, and develop background, actions, emotions, personality, etc. You can grow and develop your character by interacting with other players and participating in plots- or making your own!
There is also a bit of out of character chatting going on as well. You can tell if a person is out of character (or OOC) simply by the way that they put OOC in front of their sentences/posts. We ask that everyone do this so that it isn't so confusing to who is in character and who isn't.

You can get started by registering for an account HERE.
(These forums are supplemental to the chat, and are *not* where most of the role playing actually takes place).


I made an account. How does this work?
--Log into the chat, which will take you to a Welcome Page.
There’s a lot of information you can find here: current news, help tips, weather report, and the current Moon.
-- You’ll also be able to select which character you want to play from the drop down. Pressing Enter will take you into the main chat
-- Only have one character right now? You’ll be able to add new characters to your account once you log in to chat.


How do I find a race, job, or character image?
-- Once you’re in the main chat, you’ll see a frame to your left. Click on the “Control Panel” button to expand it, and click on the “Settlings” button. You’ll be able to edit your character’s information here.
-- Some people in chat are available to make character images for you- or you can make your own! Just be sure it fits within the limits of the image rules: no bigger than 375 x 325 (or 325x375) pixels. You can also add a Thumnbail Image, which shows up beside your name in the user list. Thumbnails must be no bigger than 60x30 pixels
-- Also keep in mind that someone else may already have a reserve on a certain actor or actress. You can check the Art Guild section of the forums to see who what character mirrors have already been reserved.


All right, I have my character ready. Now what? 
The main chat itself may seem a little confusing at first, but it's easy to get the hang of.
New messages will appear on screen as they’re posted..
To send a post, write what you want and click on the "send" button.

You might want to start right off meeting with people from the realm that are already there, or you may just like to lurk around a bit to get the feel of what is going on. In order to tell who is in the same room as you, look at the bottom of the page in the current user area. In that you will be able to see who is in what room, what their job is and what their idle time is. Idle time is how long it has been since they last posted or checked for new messages. Your idle time will always appear at 0 for you though, being every time you click on send or get new messages it resets.


Whisper To
To whisper to someone is to talk to them privately. Write your message in the box; tick the person’s name whom you wish to speak to on the left and click on the whisper command. This sends them a message that is only between you and the other person.


How do I move from room to room?
At the top on the left, you will see a drop down list of all the rooms you can go in. By choosing a room in the "room list" box and clicking on the travel button it will move you from room to room. As a Traveller, you'll be able to access most rooms. However, there are some rooms that you wont be able to get into, because they're either privately owned rooms or reserved for higher positions within the realm.


I missed a message, how can I tell what was said? 
In the select command box you can choose 'Get last messages' and then choose how many old messages you want to see again. Then just hit the “Send Command” button. This is useful if you need to re-enter a room.


When do I move up in rank?
We ask that you visit the realm frequently, obey all rules, be helpful to new people when necessary, join or start quests, and basically make yourself useful when you can. In order to move up from Traveller, you need to look around the realm for a job, or role play your character in a certain way- perhaps as a villain or a merchant- to get a different title and a higher daily gold income.

NEW SHOP IMAGES
You may have noticed the changes to the shop items in chat. Each shop now has its own unique image frame, so members of chat can easily see what items are available to buy and which are custom made.
Morgan has also spent some time cleaning out the item factory, deleting many out-dated items, adding others to the shops, and merging duplicates. Most of these items and the profile errors they caused have been remedied by now. However, if your profile is giving you error codes, please Realm Mail her and she'll be glad to fix the problem.

NPC BONUSES
To help plot developments and offer more rp opportunities, we're experimenting with a new form of Narrating (or for those more familiar with D&D, Game Master-ing).
On the walls of different rooms, you may find a post that will have an additional **NPC BONUS** tag to it. Following the instructions will give you more details that may not have been posted to the wall. This bonus information will be tailored to your character's race, strengths, and weaknesses. These details can then be used to further some of the plots occurring within the Realm.
If you have an idea for a plot that could also be developed this way, either speak with Morgan or realm mail NPC with your ideas!

CARNIVAL OF LIGHTS
Let's celebrate the night at the Crystal Falls for this year's Carnival of Lights, and bask in the glory of summer while it lasts. Fall is just around the corner. The event starts August 26th at 7:30pm and lasts as long as people are still having a good time. Food and drink will be in abundance. Come for the company and community spirit. Come for the goodies, or just come for the contests and prizes.

KNIGHTS TOURNAMENT
We have one spot left in the tournament that I would like to fill, if you are interested just send a realm mail to Leo in chat. So far the tournament will consist of two rounds, one will be a role fight which you can do in chat or on the forum, you and your opponent can choose which. The other will be a round of chance so that the end result will not be based solely on roleplay ability. If you have any ideas for further rounds please get in touch with myself or any of the mods.

CARNIVAL OF LIGHTS
As summer comes to a close, the kingdom has the chance to gather together for the breath taking festival of lights. This night we will have the releasing of beautiful floating candles in the waters of the Crystal Falls to celebrate. As always there will be drinking, dancing, and of course plenty of food for all to come and enjoy. The festival will be held August 19th at 7:30pm est, so come out and join us! We hope to see you all in attendance.

THE ELOPING ROYALS
While on vacation Leo and Serenity decided it was the best time to tie the knot, Surprise! They had a beautiful, small wedding upon the Island where only the most exclusive guests were invited. Let us congratulate the couple on their vows and welcome our new Queen Serenity Valtar to the throne. Many blessings for the Royal couple.

NEW CHAT!?
It has been desired for a long time, but now with the changes to codes and servers we are in need of a new chat that will continue into the future with us. As it stands our current chat works fine and should be safe to keep using but in case of future changes we feel it would be best to finally get chat updated and improved. This is not cheap though so I have set up a fund and now all donated money and VIP purchase will go into this pot for a new chat. I have started off the pot and it now holds 20% of our desired total, so if you have some spare cash please consider helping out chat.
http://phoenixlegend.net/pages/thepot.htm

DONATIONS
I would just like to give thanks to those who have donated this month. Your money helps us keep
the site ad free and full of updates. We all appreciate every Donation!
