So you've made your new account and are just itching to get going....but now what?

In this thread you'll find a basic guide of how to get started here at Faenaria. We'll go over placing an order for pets and even setting up your Fae Avatar (known from here on out as FA). We'll also discuss the different types of currencies and Essences for your convenience. Ready? Let's go!

First and foremost: Please read and follow the Terms of Service. That being said, next you should...

Talk to us!
Seriously! We don't bite hard! Introduce yourself and tell us about yourself. How you found us, your hobbies, hopes and dreams, or whatever you feel like sharing. We love meeting new people and are always willing to help. Often times we'll give you tips about newbie charities and special events going on so don't be afraid to speak up!

Making Moniez!
As with any other world, you'll need a form of currency to purchase the pretties here. In the world of Faenaria, we have three two types of currencies: Wish Shards and Dream Shards. Let's go over what these two are first:

  • Wish Shards - Wish Shards, or WS, are our worlds basic currency. You'll use this to purchase basic items or shiny stuff for your FA.
  • Dream Shards - Dream Shards, or DS, are our world's premium currency. This is what you would use to purchase special items like the Reshma Gown (now retired) or special holiday pets.
  • Your soul! - last but not least we require small fragments of your sou*shot*....

Moving on...

"So how do I get the moniez" you ask? Simple!

WS can be gained by exploring the site and interacting with us on the forums (especially the RP forum). So get out there and take a look around, say hi and make friends!

DS can be gained by purchasing them from the site. The exchange is $1 = 1DS and is done through the "Purchase" tab at the top. All purchases go toward stuff for the site: hosting costs, new art, programming fees, etc etc. We do not pocket this stuff!

Now that you've figured out your way around the site, let's talk about your Fae Avatar (FA)!

Setting up your FA
So depending on what you were lured/drug/walked in willingly here for you may want to put a face to your name first. So here's how to set up your sexy lady or studly man:

Step 1: Buy some clothes
Head over to the Market and here you will find our Faenaria Mall. This is where you can purchase anything from Pet Ordering Items (these are currently unavailable but stay tuned!) to Pretty Dresses, Eyes and Lips to Fashionable Undies. Here's a directory of what each store is before we continue:
  • Beauty Salon - This is where you'll buy your FA's Flowing Locks or Manly Manes.
  • Dream Emporium - This is where you'll purchase all FA items sold for DS.
  • Express Yourself - Those awesome new contacts you've been wanting. That new mouth you've been dreaming of. That hip new makeup everyone's wearing. This is where you'll find everything for your face!
  • Foot Fetish - That feeling deep inside that you have to dress your feet better than yourself can be indulged here. Shoes and boots are where it's at!
  • Here and There - Every FA needs a vacation! This is where you'll create your own picture perfect postcard of your FA sitting on a beach or on that romantic balcony. Everyone will be so jealous of your postcard background.
  • Hold Me Tight - Don't let go! You don't want to drop those new shinies that your FA carries around.
  • Jewelry Box - Shinies! Shinies everywhere! Every FA should have the latest in jewelry. This is where you'll find it.
  • Nip and Tuck - Want to get a tan or maybe dress up in that vampire costume you have (complete with an uber pale facade)? This is the place to get whatever you need!
  • This and That - For all of the little things that don't fit anywhere else. You know, gloves, hair accessories, blindfolds...the usual!
  • Veronica's Secret - For all those delicate under-needs. Or that spicy evening you have planned. We don't judge.
  • Wish Boutique - That dream dress or awesome rock outfit you've been drooling over through the window can be found here. Pants, skirts, shirts...it's all here!
  • Preview Shop - This shop is where you find all of the pretties that are off rotation or retired! Whoa, now, don't cry! Some of them come back! But keep in mind that some won't. Make sure to pick up your pretties while they're available!


Note: you can preview items in the store by clicking on the image of each item. To change colors, use the drop-down menu and select the color (color may -not- change on the item's icon) and click the item again to place the new color on your preview. Rearrange items by moving them up or down to create the perfect look! Once you have your stunning attire picked out, purchase the items by clicking on the WS or DS icon toward the bottom left of each corner.

Step 2: Get Dressed
Phew! *wipes sweat from brow* Now that the shopping trip is over, head to your inventory via the "Avatar" link!
Spoiler: Here's a pic of where to go if the link doesn't work!

Once you're there, follow the next few steps to get dressed and save your avatar:

Step 2a: Select "Create New Avatar"
Once you click this button, it will ask you to name your avatar and select a gender. Whether you want to go with the well-toned gentleman or the alluring lady is up to you! Once you've selected your gender and officially given your new persona something to call itself, It's time to get dressed!

Step 2b: Time to look cool!
Click on the awesome little sunglasses icon and it will take you to your closet. This will show you everything that you own organized into neat (or sometimes messy...idk any sock drawer that's neat!) little drawers. Once you select a category, it lists the items in that category. Click the drop down menu to select a color and it will pop up on your avatar to the left.

Once you have all of your items on, arrange them the way you want to create the perfect look for you. To re-order your layers, simply click on the desired item in the list under your avatar and drag it into your desired order.

Is your left side your good side? Well flip that baby around! You can flip your avatar to face the left if that's your cup of tea (or if you want to make a cute matching couple among your many faces!).

Note: some items may not show up right away when you select them to wear. Just hit the refresh button (pictured below) and it should pop right up!

Here is a nifty diagram of the buttons you may see in your closet!

Don't forget to save your outfit before you head on to the next step.

Voi La!!!

Step 3: Strut your stuff!!! (We can't wait to see your face just the face though...!)
Now that you're all dressed, you need somewhere to go! Head over to "Settings" on the left side of the screen. The last option under "Forum" is the one you need! Click on "Avatar" and select your lovely lady or handsome gent. Once you've selected which avatar you want from the drop-down, click set and you're all....well...set! This will let us see those awesome threads you've decided to strut around in on the forum! Don't be shy! Show them off everywhere!

Spoiler: Pics if you need them!!!

Pet orders are currently inactive while we shift realms! Give us a bit to get these features up and running!

Now you need some Critters!!!

Our pet system is going to allow the user base to create colorful fantasy pets ranging from wolves and dragons to fish! All pets will be “Color Your Own”, there won’t be any generic, cookie cutter versions. But don’t worry, if coloring isn’t your thing, we will provide easy alternatives so that you can still hoard gorgeous pets without all the fuss! We have lots in store so stay tuned!


TRUST NOTHING NIMUE SAYS ABOUT PETS! SHE LIIIIIIIES!!!!
