New Players' Guide 🔰

Welcome to Star Army! This article has the basic steps and info you'll need to participate.

How Does RP Work Here?

In Star Army, you and other members create characters who live in the high-tech fictional universe of Star Army and then use your imagination to write your character's actions and dialogue to create collaborative stories. That's role-playing (RP). Your character's actions will affect the shared setting for future players.

RP is done on the forums and we also have a Discord channel for chatting. It's OK to do RPs in chat and then post them to the forum. For the full guide to roleplaying on Star Army, see Roleplaying.

Creating Characters

When you're ready, start making characters using the guides found on the Creating A Character wiki page. Once your character is approved you're free to start Roleplaying by joining a plot group or by joining or creating a roleplay thread.

Account Setup

Star Army is an “account per player” (APP) site, which means each member should only have one account for the forums. The same login will be used for all of your characters. You must be 18 or older to join Star Army. There is no cost to join or participate. Before joining, you should probably read the Site Rules.

Register an account on the forums by clicking “Log in or Sign up” on the upper right corner of the page. You're invited to then introduce yourself in the Introductions & New Players Forum.

Optional: Create a wiki account. The wiki login system is separate from the forum one, so you will need to register for both. You'll need a wiki account to create and edit wiki articles (such as if you want to make a page for your character). Register an account for the wiki.

:!: If you have trouble registering, contact the admin. See the Questions and Assistance section below. Star Army uses advanced anti-spam methods that may occasionally flag a legitimate user for further review based on IP address, email, username, or other characteristics.

Questions and Assistance

Getting into Star Army is easiest when you ask someone to mentor you through it, and we're happy to do that! If we haven't volunteered yet, just ask! You've got questions: there are many ways to get answers or help:
