Quick Start Guide
covering questions & fiddly bits

Welcome to Witchlight!


We started in 2017 as an AU Black Jewels site. Since then we have grown into something a little more diverse, adding in new races, territories and craft, but our roots are still deeply embedded in Anne Bishop's world.

If you like fantasy, intrigue, and world shaping power, consider joining us. We're the fantasy site you should have always been looking for.


The F.A.Q


Q: What are the differences between canon lore and WL lore?
A:
  • None of the book events have happened here.
  • It is more welcoming to LBGQT characters.
  • We do not have Demon Dead.
  • We do not allow Rings of Obedience.

Q: How do I create a subaccount?
A: You can find subaccounts under "Modify Profile", "Manage Subaccounts". Use the "Create/Link" option at the bottom of the page to create a new subaccount.

There are no limits to the number of subaccounts you can create or characters you can have.

Q: Do I have to fill out all the profile information?
A: Doing so ensures that your face-claim is registered and that your character's Jewels, Caste, and other information appears in their mini-profile. Simply select "Forum Profile" from the "Profile" drop down and have at it.

Note: Currently the list is broken down into Male/Female so a Gender does have to be selected until we can code a better system.

Q: What are Marks?
A: Marks are an onsite currency you earn. With them you can buy items in the shop from Territories to Player Castes. We offer an obscene amount of roll options and even Jewel Sets in the shop. Troller not giving you an Ebon-grey? Go buy one!

Q: How do I earn Marks?
A:
  • Character Approval: 25 marks.
  • Posts: 0.08 marks per word, no cap.
  • Completed Threads: 25 marks per page, no cap.
  • Racial Lore: 50 marks.
  • Territory Lore: 75 marks.

Q: Wait, I can buy a Territory?
A: Yes! You can buy your own Territory to create lore for and run. In fact, you can buy up to three. They are 7,500, 15,000, and 25,000 Marks respectively.

Q: How do I use items I have purchased in the shop?
A: To redeem items you have purchased, or received from a giveaway, use the Transactions thread.
