Do you find yourself with greatest of urges to write your thoughts down? Do you want to try to help entertain the community? All are welcome to do so here! This thread is dedicated to material that is to be written ICly, and it is NOT public knowledge!
Topics in here can include a characters journal and a character's biography. Got IC-written work that isn't meant to be known by others ICly, but isn't appropriate for this section? Then check out the subforum within here!

While not required in order to play on FRC, biographies and journals make for wonderful tools on a roleplaying server. A biography helps build your character into a living, breathing being who has a past that undoubtedly made an impact on who they are today and a journal helps you keep track of important events that have happened to your character during your stay here.
It also proves to be a useful DM tool. In PnP, there is normally around four players and one DM, making it a great deal easier to keep track of a character's past in case one day the DM decides to use something from it. On an online server with countless people, it is handy for a DM to be able to just scroll through the forums, find a person, and read about their life, how they grew up, key people that have effected them, and so forth if they ever have the desire to bring that past into the game.
Again, this is not required, but may prove to enrich your gaming experience here.
So, if you have the time, I highly suggest doing this. Thank you.
Hail Cormyrians, please note this Adventurer's Registry and Creative Writings Update!
This board and its sub-forum are for your creative writings and expressions about the characters and personalities that inhabit Forgotten Realms Cormyr.
Please use the Adventurer's Registry to post descriptions, writings, images that are public and fair to be considered general knowledge to all player characters of FRC.
For more private writings that are not to be considered general knowledge to most Forgotten Realms Cormyr characters, please use the password protected Creative Writing thread.
Community Members who read entries in the Creative Writing sub-forum are asked to treat the information as OOC only and to consider the information out of scope for what your character knows, unless the information has also been shared with your character in game. It is the responsibility of each of us individually as players to manage the information that our characters know and what they do not know. Before reading private writing, please be prepared to treat the information accordingly.
Community Members are encouraged to think carefully about their writings and to consider if it is something they truly want someone OOCly to know. Posting it here is a revelation, even if it is OOC only. It may be like a big spoiler of a good book or like showing someone the last page of a book you're currently reading.
Therefore, please read and write responsibly and with consideration for your fellow Community Members.
If you'd like a thread or post moved into or out of the password protected sub-forum, or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact a member of the DM Team.
