database checkin link below!



Step 1:

You will need to input your player id as your username, and ‘password’ as your password (unless you have changed your password manually). If for any reason you are having a difficult time logging in, just email drsocalcoord@gmail.com

Step 2:

Next you will choose how long you will stay for:

  • “I will attend the entire event” ($50) means that you can stay the entire weekend and your character(s) will receive full build.
  • “I will only attend a single day” ($30) means that you can only be at the event for 24 hours which will be marked on your character sheet(s) from the time you arrive, to the time you leave as well as still having to do a 2 hour NPC shift, and a 1 hour clean up shift.
  • “I'm just here to NPC” ($0) means just that; that you will not be playing any of your characters and that you will not earn any build.

Step 3:

From there you will choose which characters you will be paying for; check the box(s) and click next.

  • First character $50
  • Second character $20
  • Third character $20; unless you are a new player, then your First character would be $20 for your first event.

Step 4:

This will be the longest part of the self player generated check-in. On this screen you will see 2 drop down boxes, one for Purchased Build and one for AP Build Conversion. You can select up to 2 purchased build (each build point costs $10), and can choose to AP Build Convert up to 2 extra build points (10AP each).

It will not allow you to continue if you try and AP Build Convert and don’t have enough points to do so. Here is where you will also choose what items you would like to ‘buy’ with your AP points if you have any, as well as doing any Big Digs if you have that skill.

After you have selected everything for that character click next.

Step 4.5

((This step will only be used if you have chosen a second or third character to which you will complete the screen(s) as mentioned above in the last step.))

Step 5

On this screen you will be able to choose your NPC time through the drop down menu and be able to select whether you have paid for an NPC OPT out (please do NOT select this box unless you have ALREADY paid for the OPT out!).

Also please do not choose make-up unless you have already cleared it with Tara.

There will be a Clean Up drop down as well, but it will be the same for everyone so you dont need to change it.

The last step to this screen is the Creature Comfort drop down. Creature Comfort cards are items that your character(s) can get in game, and unless you are positive that you have 5 Creature Comfort cards to turn in at the start of game for 1 Build Point, then just leave the drop down empty.

Step 6:

The next screen will show you a total of what you have, or will be paying; click Finish. (it has been know to show inaccurate totals at times, and if it does please send an email to drsocalcoord@gmail.com, but please still press Finish at the bottom).

Step 7:

You're done!  Your request is now ready for approval:
