To accompany this well, we would need a newbie guide PDF :)

I'll resurrect this project soon, after the SoS thing.

Also Dion's w.i.p. Player's Guide to RL will come in handy once it's finished.

But it's 4e oriented, IIRC, while I'm thinking of something more universal. Many new faces here are still in the 3e era.

Or 2e even... :)

A pdf would be good, but I think the sticky should stay (perhaps with a link to the pdf). Some people find the forum first and might not dig down into the Library or Mausoleum right away.

That's a very good point. It took me a while to discover those places myself, and a link to the PDF on this thread would be a great idea. Do you guys think there should also be a map of the setting as well? At least the core? There was a member, from France I believe, a couple of years ago who was doing some wonderful maps . . .

This will be moving into the FAQ as soon as possible.

It might be a good idea to lock this thread and include a link to the "introduce yourself" thread here...

I moved the misplaced posts from here to the "introduce yourself" thread, and added a link to that thread in the list in the first post. I'm not going to lock this thread, since it's still a good place for suggestions to add to the list.
