Hello Prisoners.
I'm working on an FAQ / Index of popular and important forum threads and wiki pages to act as a 'one stop shop' for information signposting. Below is the first draft.

If you can think of a resource or important information not inlcluded above, please let me know.

Spoiler: show
Try asking on the forum, or in the official discord server in the #free-advice channel. Chances are a member of the community can help you out.
If you have a question about rules, or wish to report a rulebreak, contact a DM.

Class Restrictions
- Monks cannot multiclass with other base classes. Paladins who do so will be unable to progress further as paladins, and will lose all paladin abilities. Both classes may take prestige classes without restriction.
- When multiclassing, at no time can a character's classes be more than 10 levels apart.
- All prestige classes require a minimum investment of 5 levels by level 20


Subraces
- Subraces are restricted by setting of origin - when choosing your background you can see a list of allowed subraces.
      Subraces are not supported for homebrew or non D&D settings - base race characters only.
- Some ECL subraces require an application.

Deletions, Relevels and Remakes
 - Characters cannot be deleted from the server vault. You may make new player accounts in order to manage your character lists if desired.
- You can use the @relevel command to re-take your last level up at any time, but you will lose all experience points gained since then.
      Works once per level.
- The Relevel Crystal can be used to fix mistakes you made earlier on. It offers a full relevel from level 2 up to 5 times, or 31 days since first use, whichever comes first.
      The Relevel Crystal is intended to be used to fix mistakes or bad choices, not to 're-spec' your character, drastically alter them, nor to retroactively take levels in a PrC you have been approved for.

Server Systems
The Current Year
- Time flows at the same rate as in the real world (1:1), even though the day/night cycle as well as the seasons follow the in-game clock. In other words, for every year in real life that passes, one year has passed in the game world.

Overview of Environmental and Immersion Systems

Partying and Experience Points
- Soloing is allowed, but the module is balanced for group play. Solo at your own risk, but we encourage you to adventure in groups.
- The 'Join Party' function has been disabled. Experience Points are distributed based on proximity to a kill.
The XP System


Special Commands
- You can access a list of special commands from your in-game journal. These allow you to perform a lot of character customization, interact with the world and with creatures under your control.
- You can type help after any command to learn more about how it works and your options.

I second this highly We been needing this for years. More details in each subject most definitely. I didn't see anything for POTM's Discord information that may be importantly needed given the frequent use of it by some here.

Perhaps mention the @relevel command can only be used once per level. I realize the game tells you this, when you go to use it, but I imagine someone saying "why doesn't the page say as such?"

Consider adding information, either here on on the Wiki, about feat progression.  I say this as I found out just this week from darkshadow that most classes, including PrCs, will get a feat at level 2, and every third level after. It would help a lot of questions about build planning if this is mentioned.

A section about using @seat me, or campfires, when a PC transitions on top of a cliff.

A section explaining area resets after 15ish minutes of PC in-activity, in case of NPC's dying to rats (looking at you Warehouse Manager!)

Also, you might want to peruse this link https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GTAFlg_yz_il4Eafaa4zpomlaHkexw9aSU5pHi6Jp00/edit
for any overlap?

Under Overview of Environmental and Immersion Systems add language about weather impacting detection skills.

Consider Character Closure, Resolution, and Permadeath under Words on Roleplay and the Server Philosophy About Roleplay and Responsibility

Adding information in a FAQ about what properties druids get when they shift, so far as weapon enhancements.
I've seen it asked a few times now, and haven't really been able to find information to answer folk, aside from getting lucky that those who know more are already paying attention in the discord.
