Where to begin?
Hello. I had thought games like this had gone extinct. Imagine my delight to discover I was wrong! Anyway, I've come up with what I think is a brilliant way to begin this game, but need help in figuring out where to start.

The idea is that there is a fiery explosion of sorts. When the smoke clears, my character is lying there, semi-conscious, with a few various items (all kosher with a standard starting package), and absolutely no memory at all. The idea is that his visa and deed to his home would be damaged enough to allow him to choose his own name, but intact enough to prove his ownership of the home.

Any ideas on where to start? Any willing participants to join this particular story?

Glad you found your way here! Welcome to the forums.

I'm pretty sure I've read at least one other character with an amnesia background. You can really do whatever you want with your background, but as for where you should start, just take a look around. You can start anywhere.

I know I chose Medonia because it is being re-built and I read someone was starting a performance hall which was perfect for my character because she's a dancer. If you have an idea of what you are wanting to do, search it and see what's going on in different cities. Or you can go to the discord chat and ask around >

I'm pretty open on my thread count. When you decide where you wanna start, I'm down for doing a thread with you. Just let me know.

Hi Oliver! I'm pretty sure Moss is the character Illana is referring to...although I can't really remember... ;)

If you're interested in seeing one way how the amnesia card could potentially be played, this is the first thread I posted in:

I just went with the wilderness, but you can start pretty much anywhere you like.

In addition to Medonia listed above, I'd also recommend Ziel Aerca or Port Alyxandrya due to the density of player characters that are there, which should get you some people to play with. These are good options in general regardless of where you want to go with your character.

Jaedaxia and Demios would also be good options :)

The advice is much appreciated. I will be starting in Port Alyxandrya. After reading through some of the city descriptions that one caught my attention. Thanks again for the suggestions!

Welcome to the fun times! :) My PC is one of those who resides in Port Alyx, so once you're up and running with things, send over a hello and we can see what's what for getting a thread on the boards. :p

Welcome Along!

Cal is also in PA and is way cooler than Kailin, fyi. ;)

You guys are awesome. If you're still interested in stopping by, I've made my first post in Port Alyxandrya. Feel free to stop by if you like.

Moss isn't in PA in Spring, but Moss is a fan of that city, so hopefully we might be able to cross paths sooner or later. :)

Moss, what about the winter? I can edit the timestamp if you want to jump in.

Moss Oktra'rek December 25, 2017 04:12 PM

Moss is in Northumbria (way up north) in winter. The last time he was in PA was in early summer. But once the New Year hits us, FT opens up again, and Moss is planning a bit of travel in a generally southern direction, so how about we tee something up? :)

Adyn's in Port Alyx. If you wanna thread lemme know :)
