As some of you might have noticed certain characters in our RPG belong to the usergroup "NPC" or "non-player-character".
They can be recognized by their "green paws" (http://www.pride-lands.org/wbb2/styles/ranks/paw10.gifhttp://www.pride-lands.org/wbb2/styles/ranks/paw10.gifhttp://www.pride-lands.org/wbb2/styles/ranks/paw10.gif) under the username and the assigned rankt "Non-Player-Characters".

Additionally NPCs can get a nice NPC frame around their profile picture, like this one:

The user's title indicates if someone is a non-player-character or not.

Why NPCs ?

In former "EZboard-times" everyone could register a new account and therefore play many different characters. Those characters used to play either important roles or minor ones depending on how they were played.
However, it became difficult to seperate non-player-characters played by in users from real existing users. Now, we don't want to confuse new users with many accounts, do we?
That's why the group NPCs was created. It shows if a character is played by someone else, and if yes by whom.

So what does this mean, anyway ?

The NPC Usergroup. --> All NPCs belong to this group.
In order to create a NPC, simply register a new account with the desired name and write a PM to Kirauni. She'll add your character to the NPC group.
However, NPCs are only allowed to post in certain areas, such as the RP sections, the Infoboard and the Spam Corner.

You got two possibilities to play NPCs:

Register a new one

Simply log out and click on "Register" to create a new character.
When you are done, just write me a PN and tell me the name of the character you just created. I'll add him or her to the NPCs.

Pick an existing TLK NPC
[/list=1]

You can also pick alredy existing characters (for example Simba, Kiara or Kovu) if the desired character is not already taken by another player.
You can find this out by asking Kirauni if you can play a certain character. She'll tell you if he or she is available and, if yes, she'll give you the password.

Once you set up an NPC you should post in the "character info" thread of an already existing RPG. However, you can also start a new RPG.

If you want an avatar to go with your character, please fill out the form you can find here:
"avatar for NPCs (http://www.pride-lands.org/wbb2/thread.php?threadid=20944.)"


What else do I have to do ?

Not much. Simply write in your signature by who your NPC is played.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask Kirauni.
