I believe it is a blank space

02:33:15 PM 02/20/20
I'm gonna be at work til 6-7 PST, Am. I can take a look after that. Is the name a blank space or a question mark?

11:37:13 AM 02/20/20
Actually, nevermind.

11:23:43 AM 02/20/20
No real rush.

@Falkala. I am still getting the "this character was created by someone else... log in with that player name to use this character" message.

Lom = Evendithus.

Darn, Lom beat me to my post. Could I ask a moderator to kindly move my latest post in Enter the Void to precede Lom's two.

Hey Am! I'm at work at the moment, but are you getting kicked again? I thought our last fix stuck

Falkala... if you see this... any chance you can help me get my doppelganger sorted in-game? Many thanks!

 FAQ #20
Can I play a non-standard subrace? What about the Red Dragon Disciple class?
Thain does not mechanically support subraces. You must check with a DM before creating a non-standard subrace (i.e., tiefling, drow, duergar, vampires, half-fiends, liches, also aasimar, avariel, celestial, etc.), whether that subrace is actually entered in the sub-race field during creation or not. The DMs reserve the right to veto a request to play a non-standard subrace. If a subrace is created prior to application, the character will be removed until an application is approved. Please remember that Monstrous Player Characters (MPCs) will be treated as monsters on Thain in every way and will be expected to be played appropriately!

Note that the rules for PvP involving monstrous player characters, or MPCs is different; MPCs are kill-on-sight like any other monster in the game. Read the PvP FAQ entry for details.

Applications for Subraces should be sent to an active staff member.


-When you decide to apply, PM a staff member with your application. Include, at minimum, the race you want to play, what you would need from the Staff (ie: appearances, model replacements), and a description of your character. The staff will vote based on how much we like the application and approve it or not.

-If possible, your application should explain not only what the character is, but who they are. Why do you feel this character would be fun for others to interact with, and why the character needs an NSS slot to work. We try to avoid approving applications that only want visual fluff and attention. We're looking for characters that would contribute to the server and that need to be a monster in order to work. Telling us about your character and the kind of stories you have in mind can only help your chances of getting approved.

-Note that "monstrous" creatures are almost always set hostile to guard factions on creation. This makes playing an MPC challenging in both mechanics and roleplay. A lot of MPCs burn out early due to the difficulty of finding RP with this restriction, so make sure you know what you're getting into before you apply.

-We do not provide stat changes for subraces.

What about the Red Dragon Disciple Class?

The Red Dragon Disciple class provides the class perk of wings at level 9. At level 9 they are treated like any other MPC, but do not require an application. Playing one is a great way to get a feel for what it is like to be on the server when hostile to many factions, prior to applying for a NSS.

We also provide the option to play a colour of dragon other than Red.

To play a chromatic dragon disciple other than red, put the following in your sub-race field at character creation: Shadow, Black, Blue, Green, Red (alt wing color), or White. To play a metallic dragon disciple you can set the sub-race field to: Brass, Bronze, Copper, Gold, Adamantine, Mithral, or Silver. Breath weapons and wing colours are automatically scripted and on reaching level 10 of RDD you can gain the resistance that matches your base dragon subrace.

Metallic colours are hostile to all settlements except: Greenvale, Hamley, and the Trade and Tackle.

Chromatic colours are hostile to all settlements except: Iron City, Dragonís Watch.

Some factions are neutral to all races.

What about other character concepts that donít fit into the above?

- Thain does not permit children PCs. All characters must be of age for their race.
- Any other concepts that would require DM intervention, please contact the staff!
