Hello, members of The Lost Waters! Before I get started, I have a question: I was reading an intro and I saw an identification (as in I am________who wields__________) and I was wondering if I had to do that. Anyway, my favorite element is whatever I'm using at the moment. So, uh, yeah! I am the new guy who wants to say hi! Rhyme intended.

BY THE WAY: Check me out on deviantART! My username is Kingpencil. I don't have any Golden Sun stuff on there though. Be that as it may, I think you'll greatly enjoy my work!

One other thing: How exactly do RP battles work? And what exactly do you mean by "sign up" for a battle? ...I guess that was TWO other things...

Hey there.  I'm pretty sure you don't have to do that.

I'll check out your DA, not now as I'm about to skidaddle, but I will get back to you on it.

It varies from RP to RP, but it kinda explains itself once you get into it. As for signing up, certain ones have deadlines or certain amounts of members that can join, and signing up is as simple as being on at the correct time and posting something like this describing your character....

Name:
Element:
Weapons:
Ect.
Ect.

or a paragraph describing the character and your entrance, it varies depending on the nature of the RP, if you're interested just go around and try and join some to get a feel for it.

No, you don't have to do that.

I'll check out your deviantart. I hope I'll enjoy it like you say I will.

RP Battles: Depends on what the creator wants you to do. RP battles could be like Ailanthus said with the thing describing your character, which is mostly in the not-too-RP-ish battles, where you just fight. However, in an RP Battle, you can just describe yourself throughout the battle using regular text.

Questions out of the way, welcome to the Lost Waters! Hope you enjoy your stay!

Okay! Just checkin'!
Enjoy my deviations and my deviation from normality. I tend to be a little...strange, so bear with me, por favor.
I noticed on one that one dude came up with a few "bosses" of sorts. Any limitations on that?
Also, the positions (such as "Apprentice Adept"), what are they and do they change? Please tell me they do, 'cause I have higher aspirations than a mere Apprentice!

I can already tell that I'm going to enjoy my time here! Thank you both for such a warm welcome!

Wah! So many questions… :08:

We're all strange around here. It's quite normal. (See what I did there? Ok, I'll shut up)

That guy was probably the creator, and therefore the "head" of the rp. They do whatever they want.

The positions are based on post count.

No double posting, there's a modify button for a reason. (Wait… Isn't that the exact thing Spark says when he gives someone a warning for a double post? If so, then I've been here too much)

Sorry! I tend to ask a lot of questions when I first join a site!
Nice! That was pretty good! (No need: I liked that!)
Oh! Are there any limits to the creator's...creations? (I'll stop with the questions soon enough, never fear!)
But when do they change? I tried looking for it and came up empty! :(
Haha! Don't worry: I won't!

Greetings and Salutations, good to see a new member here. Enjoy your stay, so on and so forth.

As for the RP's it really depends on which one you join. Some can be as simple as two lines of text, whereas the more intricate RP fights like my 'Maegra Versus?' fight requite more detail and character input. If you don't feel comfortable with any of the current RP's and have an idea for how you'd like one to play out, feel free to make a new thread and we'll be sure to check it. As a general, unwritten rule with RP fights just try to not overpower yourself; it tends to be rather unsporting towards other posters.

In any case enjoy your stay, post around etc.

As a quick tip to help you with your double posts.

Do you see the little two arrow button over this " :confused1: " ?
When you press it, it inserts a line to separate the post.

Like this

So, you can use this to help address two different people or subjects.
You can also scroll down on the post reply section and can quote any post from there.
