Before Registering

We're excited that you're interested in joining Square One! While we can't wait to roleplay with you, it's important you understand a little bit about the community and the type of roleplay options we offer before you sign up. With that in mind, we recommend doing these simple steps first:

— Read the sub-pages listed in the Core links group.

Once you're ready, then we invite you to make your accounts.


Key Note: There is no rush to deciding on whether to join. Hangout in the Discord server or click around the site for however long you need. We only ask all visitors respect the community and its members by following the rules.

Account Set-Up

To join Square One, you'll want to...

Step 1: Create a roleplayer account. (If a new member.)
This account will be used to post in the out of character (OOC) only areas of the forum, such as the Getting Started and Settle In Deeper boards. Only 1 OOC account per member.

— Click the Register button (person with plus sign) located on the sticky menu's leftside.
— Sign up with your OOC name (a.k.a. online alias) as the Account Name.
— While logged in, click your account's Avatar on the sticky menu's leftside.
— Once on your profile, click Groups.
— Join the following groups: Roleplayer Account and Status: Active.

Step 2: Create a character account.
This account will be used to post in the in character (IC) areas of the forum, and can also be used in the Storage Center boards if you'd like. Each character must have their own account; unless it is an non-player character (NPC).

— Click the Register button (person with plus sign) located on the sticky menu's leftside.
— Sign up with your character's first name as the Account Name.
— While logged in, click your account's Avatar on the sticky menu's leftside.
— Once on your profile, click Groups.
— Join the following groups: Character Account and Status: Active.

Step 3: Edit the profiles.
The profile fields will change based on group the account is in. Your Display Name must be either your OOC name (if a Roleplayer Account) or the character's first name (if a Character Account).

Directions A: While logged into the account, open your User Menu by clicking the account's name located in the sticky menu's leftside. Then click the Edit Profile button followed by clicking the tab labeled as Personal.
Directions B: While logged into the account and viewing your profile, click Edit Profile/Settings located in the profile's navigation on the leftside of the page. Then click the tab labeled as Personal.


Key Note: Members sort their own accounts. Don't forget to change groups when needed. Going away? Please switch from "Status: Active" to "Status: Absent". Account no longer used? Then switch to "Status: Archived".

Once your accounts are registered and sorted, the exciting part begins: building your character, sub-lands or other worlds entirely, and making mechanics for you and others to use and enhance the gaming experience. It's up to you how much world-building you would like to be a part of. No matter if you're only interested in adding details to your character or everything about the game, the Creation Guide has information to help you on your sandbox roleplay journey.
