J&L Web Tools

I wanted to take a moment and post up an outline of all the tools available for J&L players and GM's.  This is a High level overview and designed as a reference point for new folks in the future. 

-----------------

www.shaintar.com - The main site and jump point for everything Shaintar related. 

-----------------

Obsidian Portal - OP offers a collection of campaign management tools and allows our GM's to have full control over what is available about their games and for their players.  Remember that while you may find a LOT of information here there is no easy way for the Raven's Flock to keep up with it so we ask if you want others tos ee your campaign info be sure to create linked entries into the J&L wiki.

-----------------

Shaintar.com Forums - This is the best place for all communciations with other GM's and players of Shaintar.  Some areas are only available to Gm's so that the GM's can discuss campaigns without giving away spoilers. This is also where you can find campagin discussions and reports for those not wanting to use Obsidian Portal. 

-----------------

Shaintar World Book - The World book is supplement for all the material that is printed and published for Shaintar.  This is considered cannon and provides a clean break for those who want more than the published books provide but dont want to include any J&L content.  All of the material here has been approved or written by the creator, Sean Patrick Fannon. 

-----------------

Shaintar J&L Wiki - The J&L Wiki is an index and encyclopedia of people, places, events, and things that have been explored as part of Justice and Life.  Users are free to submit new entries to get their characters and content into the wiki.  When a new entry is submitted it is put into a queue for Raven's Flock to review.  This review is to insure that the entries are consistant with the spirit of Shaintar and J&L.  This process can take a few days and up to a  few weeks depending on the level of detail and the complexity of the request. 

-----------------

Active Timeline - This section of the site provides a cronilogical view of all the "J&L Event" entries in from the J&L wiki.  Its a great place to review recent in game events and the first place the Raven's Flock and Shaintar writers go to find content that can be used for future stories. 

-----------------

J&L Content Submission - Sometimes our users want to see soemthing larger put into the world.  A grou pof bad guys, a major event or organization, or maybe a new location that could impact world events.  In these cases the J&L wiki doesnt work  very well.  Sot he Content submission option is for this. 

The rule of thumb to decide if you need to submit something for approval:

Is this a unique creature or item outside what is presented in the many available books?

Is it possible that this creature might be encountered outside of my home campaign?

Do I feel that this might not be within the "spirit" of Shaintar?

If you answered yes to any, or all, of these questions, feel free to submit your idea for the Raven's Flock to review and comment. Please always keep in mind that we will respond to submission as quickly as possible, but our answer might take from a few days to up to a week. 

Please allow plenty of time for the Flock to properly review your submissions.

-----------------

Shaintar: Justice and Life Facebook Group - If your not part of the facebook group feel free to join up.  While there are a lot of great conversations on here remimber that the Shaintar.com site is the key source of materials.
