Most of the timeline is still accurate, read more here: 

 

http://forums.dragonmount.com/index.php/topic,49009.0.html

 

 

At this point in the timeline, the Bowl of the Winds has been used (this was never roleplayed out though so we are in the process of retroactively RPing that event), the Seanchan are not in Ebou Dar yet, our "Mat" character (named Calder) is about to kidnap the daughter of the nine moons with the Band, the Black Tower has come to the White Tower to offer an alliance which will result in first the Red Ajah bonding/being bonded by BTers, followed shortly after by other Ajahs.  The Cleansing of Saidin has not yet happened but is the next "Major" event planned.

 

Hope this helps!

In the threads where people role play the name contain diffrent things like open or attn, are there any explanations?

Open seems obvious enough but what's the other meanings?

Open generally means anybody with an approved bio that would have a reason to be in that particular area with their character is welcome to join.

 

Attn: usually means that the RP is for the particular people mentioned.  Like Attn: Red Ajah!  or Attn: Shevara and Zarinen.

Have a question about the Dragon Reborn PSW, the Divisions, or RP in general?  Post it here and we'll do our best to answer it for you!

Just wondering how to get in on it and what it is all about.

:) Well the first thing to do is decide which RP Group you're interested in creating a character for. You can find out more about them in the sticky threads at the top of this board. Once you've chosen, you can write up a bio for the character and submit it to the bio email for that RP Group. Bio guidelines can be found on the relevant "out of character" Division boards (for example White Tower (DR Div) or Freelanders (DR Div) as well as on their websites or at the PSW Wiki.

The best place to begin is by reading any stickied threads at the top of the RP Group boards. If you need further help, feel free to contact the RP Group Leaders.

Concerning the names our world has with weapons,

 

For weapons like Katana, Wakizashi, tomahawk, or claymore, any weapon name that originated from a language that does not exist in the PSW, is there another name for them that is used?

A lot of those weapons don't exist as far as we know.  At least they've never been mentioned before.  Tomahawks for example, have never made an appearance in WoT as far I recall.  True katana's and wakizashi' also don't exist.  The sword we seem to see most often (Rand, Lan, etc...) has a katana blade, but has the hilt more akin to a European longsword.  Around the PSW we usually call it a Warder sword.  

 

For the most part though, nobody is going to be picky about what you call your weapons.  You could name your twin swords Betty and Susan and no one would say anything.  Out loud anyway  :D

I have a question about the PSW as it relates to the Randland depicted in the books. While I've been able to gather that the PSW isn't exactly the book world, I've also seen that it does reflect it closely. So to what extent is knowledge of the books needed? Can someone who hasn't yet completed his WoT reading participate without running into spoilers? And can this person be a part of the RP without managing to post something completely ridiculous which wouldn't work if PSW events have progressed beyond whatever book someone is up to? (As a hypothetical example, if some city or other has been pillaged and destroyed quite thoroughly and I haven't read about it yet, I would look somewhat foolish having my character traveling there and enjoying life in that city.) The RP has seemed a bit interesting, but if either or both of these obstacles are too much, I would likely just hold off my joining till I catch up with everyone else. Whenever that is.

Hey Basel! Good to see you here :biggrin:

 

It would depend somewhat on what Group your character is in. What book have you read up to? I think if it's up to about book 8 or 9, you should be ok.

Well, I guess I have a small ways to go then. I've only done books 0-5. :wink:

Id have to agree with elgee. The group yoou choose to rp will dictate wether you run into problems with the main timeline. Also u have to take in mind that it will take time before your character has developed enough to be allowed to roam on their own and in the time between ull be able to count on teachers and friends to help u out till u finish the rest of the books....which u need to do immediately! ;)

If you read the stickies in this thread we have all the information on what rp is, what the PSW is, how to get started and information on people to contact. Read up on the top threads in this board and if you still have questions don't hesitate to ask, but those threads should answer most of your questions.

Do you guys choose a time to begin an RP session and everyone participates in real time? Or is it a thread where people add to it in their own time.

The second one. Sometimes there are only hours apart in posts if people are on, but there can be up to a week or so of waiting between posts. It depends on who you are RPing with and what is going on in RL.

So, I have questions about the timeline. I'm writing a couple of bios but need to get up to date on what's happening first. The links posted earlier in this thread are a tad outdated.

Gon, for which groups are you writing Bios? It would be easier to start from that perspective. For instance if you're doing a WT bio, you won't be mentioning the main time line at all, as your bio would be in some nebulous retro time line.

as far as i know the aiel are the same. As you will have to write you bio for your character before the aiel left the waste. I dont think that there has been any strict timeline for some time...???? maybe.
