Salutations, @Mr_D. I must say, your first post was awesome.
Anyways, welcome to the Aetherlight forums. If you haven't already noticed, it's one of the greatest places to be. There's discussions on pretty much every appropriate subject, games and contests held by us regulars, and even debates between multiple parties about different subjects. Did I mention that we even made our own government system?!
Well, it might seem like a lot to chew in one go, and it really is. Fortunately, I made a few topics to help newer players like you get started on the forums.
I hope that these things help you get started! Soon enough, you'll rank up to "Member" status and you'll be able to chat more. There's also something on the forums called role-play. It's a really popular thing nowadays, and new types of role-plays seem to develop every week! If you want to get started in it, go here:
I hope you have fun, @Mr_D. If you have anymore questions, feel free to @ me and ask.
