Welcome to Aloria, the world in which Massivecraft Roleplay takes place!  
Welcome to MassiveCraft! This is the New Roleplayer’s Guide.  Do not be afraid to ask questions in the [https://www.massivecraft.com/discord-roleplay RP Discord]. Other players or staff members should be able to help clear up any confusion.
This is a guide meant to help new players acclimate themselves to Massivecraft’s Lore and Roleplay scene.  
 
==The Setting==
==The Setting==
Aloria is a planet occupied by many different races of Alorians. The premier global power, the Regalian Empire, is a zealous and militant Empire led by the humanoid Ailor, the most populous and powerful race in known Aloria. Aloria is entranced in a time-period most resembling the dark ages in technology, but the early enlightenment in philosophy and ideals.  
Regalia, or the Holy City, is central to the Regalian Empire. It is a melting pot inhabited by nearly every culture in the world; strong with the success of the last century, but uncertain about the future. Regalia is caught between eras: Knighthood clashes with the advent of firearms, while cramped medieval roads give way to brick high-rises. Everyone comes to Regalia for their own reasons. The most common is chasing opportunity— there’s plenty to do. Some flee wars in their homeland, or the consequences of their actions. A character’s background often motivates them.
Massivecraft Roleplay takes place in the Regalian Holy City; capital of the expansive and imperialistic Regalian Empire. The city is highly militaristic, and discriminates heavily against non-[[Ailor]] races, non-[[Unionist]] religions, and non-[[Imperial]] cultures.  
 
==Character Creation==
For the sake of creating a new character and getting involved in the server’s Roleplay scene, it is recommended that you stick to a simple character design: That of a common [[Ceardian]] [[Ailor]]. The Ailor are the most similar race to humans in real life, and Ceardian culture is very similar to English culture. Later on, you can create a new one!


In Massivecraft, there are no set “Classes,” though there are various [[Combat]], [[Intellect]], and [[Magic Schools]] (Though Magic requires the special “Trustee” permission that you can worry about later) your character can specialize in with an Approved Character Application. You can look into some of the more intermediate Schools (Listed below) but should stray away from more difficult or complex Schools.

==Character Sheets==
==Roleplay Lexicon==
When Roleplaying on Massivecraft, one of the first things you should do is to create a Character Sheet. This is a painless process through which our Lore Team verifies that your character is compliant and balanced within the scope of our universe. Not only does this ensure you are in sync with the rest of the players, but it helps you establish a name for yourself and gives you the ability to join organizations that vet players via Character Sheets. In order to have your Roleplay character approved by the Lore Staff, you must fill out the template located [https://forums.massivecraft.com/threads/character-applications-template.54735/ here] and post it in the [https://forums.massivecraft.com/forums/character-applications.290/ Character Applications] section of the forums.  
A few common, Massive-unique words.
*While creating a Character Application is recommended, Massivecraft is not cordoned off by a whitelist. '''You may Roleplay in Regalia as much as you like without a Character Sheet'''. However, some features will be inaccessible by you until you create one. 
* Aloria: The world we are in.
==Getting into Roleplay==
* Regalia: The Empire we are in.
The Roleplay hub of Massivecraft is the city of Regalia! To reach Regalia, type “/tp Regalia”. From there, you walk straight until you reach the Golden Willow Tavern. The Tavern is the central meeting-ground for those seeking Roleplay. It is here that you can meet new people, form stalwart friendships, and make despised enemies. At the tavern, walk around and try interacting with other individuals. Some characters may be more receptive to your’s than others! Keep talking to others and keep in mind these few tips:
* Regals: In-universe currency.
*Use “/nick Character Name” to set your character’s name!
* Metropolitan: The town guard.
*Type “l:” to switch to local chat
* Mundane: Someone without magic powers.
*Type “+” after speak in local chat to perform an emote
* Occult: Someone with magic powers.
*Type “((“ at the beginning of your message or “))” at the end of your message in local chat to speak in “Out of Character”, which is your way of communicating as a player to another player, as opposed to speaking from your character to another character
==Regalian Law==
Regalian Law can be very complex and nuanced, but as a general fist-rule, common sense takes precedence. Know that Regalia is a heavily-militarized medieval city, and does not deal kindly to crime and non-conformity. Non-Ailor Non-Unionists are treated lesser than humans faithful to the state religion. Do not steal, kill, conspire against the state, or spread any heresies, and your character should be good to go!


==The Chat System==
* Run /rpmode to leave non-roleplay channels. You are now in Local Chat.
* Run /nick use CHARACTERNAME. Your dialogue will now show up with your character’s name.
** Typing and entering '''Hello.''' will print '''~CHARACTERNAME says: "Hello."'''
** Typing and entering '''jumped.+''' will print '''~CHARACTERNAME jumped.'''
** Typing and entering '''jumped. "Woah!"+''' will print '''~CHARACTERNAME jumped. "Woah!"'''
** Typing and entering '''Hello.$''' will print '''~CHARACTERNAME mutters: "Hello."''' This has a shorter range than normal.
** Typing and entering '''Hello.*''' will print '''~CHARACTERNAME whispers: "Hello."''' This has a very short range.
** Typing and entering '''Hello.))''' will print '''Hello.''' in local Out Of Character chat.


==Utilities==
* You can revisit the tutorial at spawn.
* You can use /fav add USERNAME to see when a friend logs on and off.
* There’s an activity board near spawn (/tp Golden Willow) to show you where players are.
* /tp WARPNAME will take you around the city. Warp names often match activity board names.
* If you ever can’t find RP, check #ic-advertisements and #business-openings in the RP Discord.
* Ask in a ticket if you’re new and struggling to find anyone.

The Setting

Regalia, or the Holy City, is central to the Regalian Empire.
