Changes are afoot. Happy August, friends and enemies.
We've been tinkering with the site a little and we've made a few changes worth noting. First, we've done away with the Charades area (no one had used it in forever) and repurposed it into an AU
board once more. So now, you can take all your darlings on new adventures into other universes.
In addition, we've updated the writing challenges area and put it down by the AU board in a little area we like to call "Exploration" because it's the place to stretch your writing muscles by taking your characters (or other people's) out for a spin.
Something brand spanking new that we've added is a little thing for when you make a new character. After making a new character, you'll be directed to the member store where you can pick up a member group item (for free) that will automatically assign your role: civilian, rogue, mage, or warrior. This helps us out and gives new people a chance to check out the shop.
challenges & roulette
Speaking of other people's characters, please remember that if you signed up for the Character Roulette
writing challenge, that's open until August 26th. Please take the keys to the shiny characters you've been assigned and take them for a ride. Tell us how they experienced the breach. We're eager to read. Plus, participation in this challenge is worth 200 sovereigns!
Also, don't forget about your tournament threads! The adventure is alive there for quite some time but don't leave your pals stranded out there in the wild. Make sure to keep those posts alive. Feel free to add to the tournament area with your own threads as well, no reason you have to stick to the roulette threads assigned by Andraste. And don't forget, there's badges available for writing participation in the Grand Tourney as well.
Lastly, we were having an issue with links in the member profile. So if everyone could take a look at their profile and make sure the links to your app, shipper, & development forum are all correct, that'd be great. And if you haven't filled in those links on your profile, now's a great time to do that too.
In the last two months we've added a plethora of new people. We love and appreciate each and every one of you. You make this place what it is and we love to see you writing. Please let us know if you have questions, comments, suggestions, encouragement, or love to share.
When you're done reading this mess, please leave some love for the person in the post above you. and if you're first, say something nice about yourself. You deserve it.
