Hi all. I've been hanging around Santharia for months now, getting background  and immersing myself in the magic system, but I only just registered. Greetings to everyone!
About me: I plan to contribute mostly to developing spells, but of course I'm just a newbie so I think I'll start small. If I understand correctly mentors are a little scarce...?? I think to start off with I'll post a small spell I've been working on, nothing too ambitious, as well as contributing to the Tharian/ Styrásh vocab.
Thanks guys, wish me luck.
P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I couldn't find a place to introduce myself. Feel perfectly free to move this if it's in the wrong place.

Hello, Mearenay, and welcome to Santharia! And especially to the Great Library :)

It is very nice to see that you've already read a lot. You even know the right way of approaching things, that's always a plus! I'm sure everyone in the magic forum will be happy to help you out... That gives you more than one mentor *grins*. I'm not that much of a magic expert myself, but I do look forward to seeing more of you on the boards :)

(ps: don't worry, it's the right place to introduce yourself :))

Hello from me as well, Mearenay! wave

Yep, you won't have much luck with specific mentors, but this doesn't hinder you from starting to develop stuff. I see you already posted a spell in the Magic Forum, so I'm sure people who know how magic works in Santharia will assist you on that :) - Starting small is always good, and reading up on things never hurts :D - Good luck with your first contributions, and welcome to the Dream, Mearenay!

Hi Mearenay!   :)

You're right that mentors are hard to get, but I've not been here that long, and I've found that it is pretty easy to get feedback from a lot of people when you do post an entry.  Like Irid said, its almost like having a bunch of mentors.  The one thing I've found that helps the most is to read the Entry Templates to help you determine what information you need (make sure you follow the templates to the letter - it really helps getting approval on your entries).  Then, read a couple of completed entries in the Compendium on similar topics (ie. in your case, spells - you could also click on the Magic Book Icon at the top left of this screen), and use those as examples.  Finally, the Search Tool (its on the right side of this screen right underneath the section that says 'Help, I'm a Newbie!') is really helpful for getting background information on most things.  It almost works like a Google Search, and it seems to be pretty thorough.

Have fun, Mearenay!   :D
