Purpose of this Document
This document provides a reference for what Folderol's goals and expectations are. It is intended to liberate players and contributors from uncertainty by clearly communicating the founders' thoughts.
What is Folderol?
Folderol is a Neverwinter Nights persistent world that uses the Hordes of the Underdark expansion pack. Being a persistent world, Folderol is always online and ready for play.
Folderol's goal is to be a comfortable, light-hearted environment. Role-play is strongly encouraged but not enforced.
Folderol is a colorful place. Jokes, puns, and pop culture references are tucked into the game for players to find. Unusual playable races are available, such as goblin, lizardman, dryad, yuan-ti and pixie.
The One Big Rule (that's OBR, pronounced "uber",) in Folderol is not to interfere with others' fun. The following are only aspects of the OBR. It's up to the DMs to decide if someone's being enough of a pain to warrant action. Once the DM has decided to take action, anything's possible (from a friendly warning through banning.)
How to Become a DM
Folderol is not actively seeking DMs. However, at the discretion of the senior DMs, interested players may become DMs.
DM powers are not granted lightly. The senior DMs must all agree that the candidate can be trusted with DM powers. This trust can only be won by ongoing demonstration.
Players who wish to become DMs must:
How to Become a Builder
The most important qualities a builder can possess are:
Those who want to help in simple ways can create items (clothes, weapons, armor--stuff PCs can pick up.) How fast places are found for this content in the module usually depends on what the minimum level requirement of the gear is. Non-magic clothes can generally go into Folderol within a week. A +5 Holy Avenger could take months; we would want to make a quest for that kind of thing.
If you're interested in more involved stuff, like creating hunting areas or scripting, careful planning and close coordination with the team will be necessary.
You actually read all that? Wow. If you put up with all that text and are still interested in building, post on the forum telling us why you want to build.
