I am new to the group and am having a great time meeting great people and having fun but wanted to check and make sure I am heading down the right path in how I am playing my character. I am new to role play so dont want to do something that will get me in trouble with the group and ensure I am with in the required rules. If you have had to chance or if you would take the time to read my journal entries in the open and closed postings I would like your feedback if possible if I am going about it the right way. My character Zul is playing as a apprentice mage who was sent to gather info on Cormyr. When role playing like this is it best to work with a DM on story line and such or am I free to role play like this since I feel my actions will not negatively affect the game world. Also would it be possible to work with a DM to play the part of Zuls Master to send him directions through the Journal from time to time to gather information to further his story or is this something I should freely roleplay by myself? Also is the Magical Journal Page to much over the top or is it practical as using a way to communicate with the DMs on my actions and such. Thanks for your time and I am really enjoying all of the hard work that you have all done to make a great community and I hope to help it grow and be enjoyable for everyone.

Welcome to FRC. I am glad to see the excitement and energy with which you approach the server. In general, it is permissible for a player to RP having a character gathering information for a general group, such as Thayans looking for weaknesses. Sending information you receive or uncover would be permissible. Deciding what an NPC does with that information or giving yourself specific orders from that NPC would not be in the spirit of the server. I suggest keeping logs of what you gather and send. Then as or when a DM might drop in they would have some information to work with should they have some time to interact.
Thanks for the reply, I am hoping to be able to get back to the game soon. I work at a hardware/sporting goods store so as you can imagine things at work are very crazy and I have not really had much free time the last few weeks. So hopefully Zul will return soon to play I look forward to getting back in the game soon. Stay safe everyone
