Feel free to take this down when a new official one is created. If you have any questions about the server that aren't answered on the guide, post them down below.

EDIT: just saw q linked to one on the wiki. feel free to remove this now.
Other edit: His link is broken. Looks like this is here to stay! I'll be frequently checking to answer questions and feel free to answer questions others have left.[/quote]

You get an Edit, and you get an Edit, everyone gets EDITS!: I'm going to add some serious information to this so it's actually a helpful place.

The resource packs can be found here

Dynmaps
Main Server Dynmap: here -type "/dynmap webregister" in-game to get the registration code
Freebuild Server Dynmap: here

To get commoner you must:
-Be on the server for two weeks
-Participate in a Themed Build on the freebuild server
-Not get any warnings or oathbreakers within the two week time period

What's an Artist and Ranger?
-An artist is someone who the staff trusts to build well and without staff supervision
-A Ranger is like the tour guide position on the server. They give tours of the server and are an abundant source of information

How do I become an Artist or Ranger?
-Get Commoner
-Apply for the position on the forums here (note to staff: there currently isn't a place for people to apply for Ranger)

What are the ranks, in order, on the server?
(lowest to highest in descending order)
Not Staff:

I'm trying to apply, but I can't find out how an oathbreaker regains their rank. All the links I've found don't work. Any help? Thanks in advance.

To regain thrall and get rid of oathbreaker, you have to reach your destination assigned to you by a bounder or valar (in some cases). Then you have to wait a week and they'll promote you back to thrall.

What's your in-game name? I looked you up on the oathbreaker's list but BritishBatman was nowhere to be found.

You're not on the OathBreaker's list. I didn't realize that until I saw you log on earlier today.

It's still a work in progress, but I did make this https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_XTAdPDd-pKhS1jPwkho83PfdNu-GP9F9ei8nku6YFg/edit?usp=sharing

It needs feedback and may be a little long winded at points, but it's a mix of the old player guide with other info you could find in the wiki plus some new info about commands. Quite a lot of the resource links don't work and you need to keep scrolling to go to what a new tab would be on the new player guide for ranks and duties.
However, it does exist, has a lot of info and requires feedback, so if anyone wants to give it a read please go ahead ><
