I'm just a player, not affiliated with the GMs. This is just a gathering I made of existing links. I don't purport to be an expert on anything. There was just a lot going on in this forum and I figured since it’s confusing to those of us who have been actively participating, it’s gotta be overwhelming and off-putting to someone just starting now. So here’s a cheat sheet for some ways to establish your character and establish connections.
Take a gander at the Homes thread to see what properties others have claimed. We were trying to avoid too much overlap, but there are a lot of non-forum PCs so it’s impossible to expect that we won’t have some overlap. (I added a comment in that thread for some cool estates that nobody had claimed yet.)
Likewise, take a look at the Claimed lists. This is for estates and for titles. (Again, we might end up with 2 Dukes of Whatever and will roll with it, but we can try to minimize it.)
