Following on the conversations about what information newbies need and what information is available, the collegium scrolls are incredibly important for tailored information. All the collegiums have had a lot of work put into them, but there's always new ideas we can add and refine.
Keeping new players around is something that benefits us all, so I see this is a great place for the player base to pool knowledge and resources. There's overall frameworks and information that's useful to all. So in that spirit and as a Minister of Education, there's a couple posts I'm putting in this thread. The first, below, is a glimpse of Glomdoring's collegium index and the kind of files we have. The next one is the generically helpful files I've added (equipment, supplies, welcome, etc). Finally, there's a sample of of the guild-specific files we now have.
I welcome any feedback people may have, particularly new players and their thoughts on what should be added/shortened/clarified. I also open these up to others--if one of these would help you in your org's collegium, great. Please use it! I've cleaned up the generic ones to remove the Glomdoring specific information. If you're interested in more details on the ones I haven't given in full, let me know. I'll be adding a few other general ones as I confirm with the people who helped write them that they're okay with them being included.
