Ah - perhaps you're a bit confused by the "Player Center and Resources"..? Yes?
Well, this is easy enough to fix up. :3News and Announcements
All Official news
from any of the hosted sites (mml, evelon, draconic sanctuary, and dwf) will be posted in here.. Likewise, if the forums themselves get a bit of an alteration, it will be noted in here.. Be sure to check here often enough, to see if there are any changes that may effect you!
Upcoming Projects may be the least-used area of this board, but.. you will be able to see what is planned in the future - and how to handle it - as well as how it may effect you, and your game-play. Feel free to comment on the Upcoming Projects!
Offspring? Ah yes.. if you've managed to breed something in MML (usually via payment, or serum), then the babies will be shown off there. So, if you've paid for a breeding or cross-breeding, be sure to check back there often, as your babies might have arrived!Help
Everyone needs a little help every once in a while, right?
If you have questions about ANY area of the site (or sites), you should ONLY be asking them in the Help area.. If you have a question about the gardens, for example.. don't ask it in the gardens themselves - or in the garden tutorial... Instead, ask it in the Help section! There is a section for Forum Help
just for you! There is also an MML help
section - if you should ever have any MML specific questions (like.. "does my pliathor eat kelp?".. or.. whatever)..
Creature Specialists is an area that all users (new and old) should be frequenting often.. After all, if you want to get that pet trained (officially), you'll need to get it approved there!
In the Help section, you an also Report Bugs (we encourage this greatly!), Apply for Credit Transfers (please read about credits in the credit tutorial
), and you can even learn about all the staff members - and what each one does for the site!General Game Information
This is where you get to learn about everything.. Rules, Regulations, and .. well - anything else you could ever want to know about the game..
Before posting in the Help Forums, it might be wise to check in the General Game Information first, as you questions might already have been answered.
Each Area of the Game has it's own section in the GGI.. Don't worry, there's no roleplaying in there.. You see - each place may have something that requires statistics, of sorts.. the mining for example, has a mining catalogue.. We don't want to put non-roleplay related things in the roleplay sections - so ALL non-roleplay related information goes up here in GGI.
Kennels and Homes is a section that is all-encompasing.. it contains individual rules for ALL areas of the game (mml, evelon, etc) - including rules and regulations (and helpful lists) for the cities. After all, Kennels etc are a huge aspect of the game!
Family Trees may not be so useful, but it sure is fun! See, when people breed their pets, wouldn't it be nice to keep track of who has what parents, who produced what offspring - etc? Plus, you wouldn't want to in-breed, now would you? :O
"All" Lists may be confusing at first, but those who have ever spent real-life money on MML (or other similar sites) may find this area very useful.. You see - to protect your investment, and to prevent theft, you'll want to register your pet first - as proof that you own it 100%. The creator of MML simply can't keep track of it all (especially with trading, selling, etc going on) - so it's the job of the Users to keep track of their own pets... Makes sense, right? If you have a pet that was paid for in some way (custom, offspring, etc) - it might be wise to go and Register it there.
Characters.. ah yes.. If you've gone through the basic tutorial - you should already be familiar with the Characters section of this site.. However, there's no reason not to visit it every once in a while, right? See what new faces have popped up! :D Plus.. there's no limit on what you can put in your own character profile really (except pets).. Why not keep it as updated as possible?Huge Stat Area
Ah yes... Stats. Well, if you went through the basic tutorials, then you should know about this section as well. Though, if you're an older player, you may be interested in the Custom Creatures
section.Chat and Misc.
This - will honestly, mostly likely, be the area of the site you play around on the most.
Babble to your friends and strangers. Debate various subjects (within' reason). Trade pets and Items (use those credits!), seek out jobs (for credits) - or hire your fellow players to train your pets for you! Keep a Journal of your events, or have handy links in your Journal - so other users can find your kennel, etc easier. Advertise your world - your breeding, your trading.. your... your.. whatever! And - and don't forget, you can make suggestions to alter the very game itself!
Wow.. there's a lot of stuff to do in there! :OFun
What, you like to have fun, don't you?
You can show off your drawings and doodles in the Sketch Pad, or your stories and writings (or poems!) in the Scribbles section.
You can also talk about things that are completely not related to the web-sites.. such as *gasp* pokemon! Why not check out that "misc. adoptables" section?
Oh yes - and we can't forget the Misc. Roleplay section.. Now, everything in the Misc. Roleplay section is related in some-way to MML, Evelon, Draconic Sanctuary, or DWF - however... This area is not subject to any of it's rules or stats, nor does it effect the real game. For example.. Want to play an anthro Wiurn from outer space? No problem.. you wiurn (nor do you) doesn't gain any levels or anything.. Heck, you don't even have to OWN the pet! (but you can not play as a pet somebody else owns).. Just - have fun in there, and keep in mind, the misc. roleplay section is not related to the actual game in any way.
Oh yes.. You've been wanting these, haven't you? There should be at least one officially hosted contest every month - so keep a lookout for them, and their prizes!Wrap Up
Now... Other than "misc. roleplay", there are no roleplaying sections in the Player Resource Center.. and likewise, down below, in the Roleplaying areas, there are no Rules (they're all listed up above!)... So, this should help keep things organized - the rules with the rules, and the game with the game. :3
