Joining RPGClassics

Thanks to Merlin for making the original Join Page, and Cidolfas, Hiryuu, Dalton of Zeal & RoguePaladinTrian(take 2, folks) Cless Alvein for doing fabulous jobs following in maintaining the join page!

So, You Want To Be A Shriner! Good on yer! It's a bit more complicated than it seems, though. ^^; Click on a step below to be taken to a Q & A page outlining the numerous details of each step. Please read ALL the Q & A pages before sending me any e-mail or requesting a shrine! I will be checking to see that you've understand what you need to do before doing it, so don't be lazy.

Step 1: Choose And Reserve Your Shrine and how I bug you about working on it!
Step 2: Decide What To Put In Your Shrine and what not to put!
Step 3: Create Your Shrine Using HTML and how to use HTML and the templates!
Step 4: Send Your Shrine To RPGC's Server Using FTP and how to use it!
Step 5: Finish Your Shrine And Join RPGC and what you get when you join!

These pages should take care of all the help you'll need. But if you are still confused, we have a Shrining Forum, where you can ask questions, suggestions or anything else. If that doesn't help, e-mail me and I'll see what I can do to help you.

Any other advice? Well all I can say is to try to do a lot of the shrine at once as you play the game, for you'd hate to have to replay an entire game you just finished to get all your monster pics eh? If that's not your style then I suggest making A LOT of save states, at least one new one after every hour of gameplay. Secondly, choose a game you enjoy. Doing a game you cherish should make the sometimes tedious process of shrine making go faster. Finally, do NOT try to reserve the shrine unless you have the time and energy to learn how to use HTML and FTP, and to actually make the shrine. Don't reserve it just because you think you might eventually have time to do it.

The following is a list of games which have been decisively decided NOT to be RPGs, in no particular order.

  • Syphon Filter (PSX)
  • Super Metroid (SNES)
  • Any Metal Gear game
  • Pokemon Stadium (N64)
  • Maniac Mansion (NES)
  • ActRaiser 2 (SNES)
  • Any "normal" Megaman or Megaman X game (including Megaman Zero).
  • Donkey Kong 64 or similar 3D platformers.
  • Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 or Beauty and the Beast. 8-)
