We'll approve your requests as soon as we can.
STEP TWO: REQUEST FOR YOUR CHARACTER TAG.
Once you're requests to join the comms have been confirmed, make a comment with your character's name in bold and no capital letters on this post for the logs comm and this post for the network comm. We'll do the rest!
STEP THREE: POST TO THE CAST LIST.
The link to the cast list is here. Just fill in the information on the form that we've provided you with there!
STEP FOUR: GET A ROOM.
...By posting to the House Assignments Page. We'll update it using the form you filled out on that link as soon as we can.
STEP FIVE: SIGN UP FOR A PROGRAM AT BALAMB.
This is either optional or strongly encouraged depending on your muse's background. Read more on Balamb Academy here.
Once you're done, sign up for classes at Balamb here.
STEP SIX: JUMP RIGHT IN!
Introduce yourself to everyone on the OOC community and send your character over to start bothering people at Falner once the day change after the approval of your application has kicked in. :)
OPTIONAL: GO ON PLURK AND ADD EVERYONE!
If you have a Plurk account, that is! The official Plurk for Waking the Dead: Welcome to the New Age is geistnet. A number of our players also have Plurk handles.
OPTIONAL: LET THE MOD TEAM KNOW THAT YOU WANT IN ON OUR DROPBOX
We have a Dropbox folder specific to primers, dossiers and whatnot for Waking the Dead: Welcome to the New Age. These are updated more frequently, of course, but are specifically geared towards Waking the Dead 2.0.
If you still want to be part of the Dropbox folder, give your email address over to Pam. She'll invite you to the folder ASAP.
OPTIONAL: THREAD OUT YOUR ORIGIN STORY WITH A MOD OR MINI MOD
We used the Test Drive Meme for these purposes with our first batch of players, but the formal post for doing threads of this fashion can be found here. Feel free to privately message any member of the mod team if you're interested in doing this - they'll plot things out with you in order to make the thread "canon".
This is advantageous, as threading your origin story will earn your character extra experience points! You're free to thread it any time with us, as long as you're still in the game.
