A shadow rises over the Waypoint...

Some came to answer the call of the hero; that inner voice that speaks of chivalry, altruism, and goodness. Others, t'was the search for knowledge or power that brought them here. Darkness and blood are the coin of some, souls steeped in deeds too terrible for the light of day. Still others, lost to the mists of time, find themselves as strangers in an even stranger land. All, however, have one single thing in common; they now walk the lands called the Waypoint.

This world between worlds, where magic and technology clash and the impossible is frighteningly real, stands at the center-point of all space and time. It defies reason or logic, explanation or control. It is here that some brave and ambitious few have clawed a life out of the wilderness and wilds to build a coherent community out of such disparate origins. Against the nightmares of myth and beside the folk of legend they make the Waypoint their own.

Welcome to Waypoint, where anything is possible… and things are rarely as they seem. Where children's stories and impossibilities walk. A realm between realms where techno sorcery exists beside future-anarchy… and magic is real.

From the darkness shadows have begun to rise and there are whispers of fractures in the new made peace so hard won.  The fragile bonds forged between the Living and the Undead have been tested nearly to breaking.  Though the battle hardened folk of the Waypoint have been tested and found stronger than the sum of the challenges before them, their greatest test is yet to come.  For an ominous shadow creeps across the face of the realm, and even the most brazen hearts cannot help but wonder... what awaits them... when the snows melt?

 

If you have ever felt the call to be more than you are, to shed the mundane and walk among legends, to become the greatest of heroes or darkest of villains, the Waypoint awaits. Here, long swords clash with black powder and you can cast off your past to become anything… anyone you have the strength and courage to create. Here… those with cunning or charisma can bring folk together to build their own place in an ever-changing world full of challenge… and possibility.

Getting Started

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. Joomla! brings together the template and your content to create web pages.

Logging in

To login to your site use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles and modify some settings.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "Submit Article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Template, site settings, and modules

The look and feel of your site is controlled by a template. You can change the site name, background colour, highlights colour and more by editing the template settings. Click the "Template Settings" in the user menu.

The boxes around the main content of the site are called modules. You can modify modules on the current page by moving your cursor to the module and clicking the edit link. Always be sure to save and close any module you edit.

You can change some site settings such as the site name and description by clicking on the "Site Settings" link.

More advanced options for templates, site settings, modules, and more are available in the site administrator.

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "User Menu" menu (visible once you login) or by adding /administrator to the end of your domain name. The same user name and password are used for both sites.

There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the website you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums.
