To begin with, I played this game at launch. Things got busy for me, and I got distracted. I ended up trying out SW:TOR, and that was a horrible mistake that I seriously regret and ashamed of.
HOWEVER, one thing I tried for the first time in SW:TOR was a bit of RP, which I absolutely loved. Since I'm coming back, I really want to get into Rift RP and try it out.
SOOO... I have found lots of great community guides on RP that you Rift peeps have done FANTASTIC work on and I'm reading through a lot of them... but this has lead me to some serious head scratching.
First, there are a few tools for developing my character's background and personality out there. I'm looking through "The Interview" as one example. I'm having a hard time with it because of some weakness/confusion on the lore and fitting into the RP setting. Maybe you guys can help.
First, a question they ask is: where was I born? Well I mean in the game as I understand it I am ascended, soooo.... get my drift? I am guessing that I was raised from a person who was previously somebody... but how long before? What in the story was happening during the major period of my life when I was actually alive. This has always been very confusing to me. I guess I'm Eth and I will be reading up on that, but any advice or like "lore you NEED to know" guides you can point me to will be helpful. I guess I just need a better feel for/understanding of what time period was I alive in so I can find a way to understand how to decide just a blueprint of the major events of my life.
Also, if anyone knows of or could point me to a good guild that helps newbies, I'm on the Faeblight server. Thanks.
