I think that it's not allowed for new members to create their own characters, but I'm not staff so you'll have to ask them. :)

As for teh rest, you would do well to read as much as you can find on the RPG site. There's tons of info on the RPG and some handy tips too. Other than that, you just pick a character or more. It would help if you also have some sort of goal for your character. Like me for example, when I joined, I picked Springer and wanted to involve him as much as I could. I sent teh staff a few ideas and one of them was accepted. It helps if you have some sort of plan for your character, but if you want to dive right in, that can be done too.

Ask questions via PM and such helps too, because that way the other players can help you out in the RPG if you need it.

If you need a starting point in the RPG on the Autobots' side, then I might be able to help you out. If you're picking a 'Con then I can't help you. :D

Hope this helps!

Just going to copy 'n paste my response from another thread.

After you've had a look through the rules:
http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/rpg_rules_and_guidelines (http://tfarchive.com/community/../rpg/site/rpg_rules_and_guidelines)

...Go to the role call thread (linked below) to make a character claim:

An easy way to know if a character you are interested in is claimed or not, simply go to the RPG Wiki (http://tfarchive.com/community/../rpg/site/) to see if the character is available. The link to the character page is below:
http://tfarchive.com/rpg/site/characters (http://tfarchive.com/community/../rpg/site/characters)

This is where the RPG is:

If you are confused as to where to start, speak to one of our lovely RPG staff members (http://tfarchive.com/community/../rpg/site/tfarchive_rpg_team). They'll point you in the right direction.

What they said.

As for the fan characters, I think the rule is that you have to play with a normal (i.e. non-fan-character) guy for a while before you could ask to play a fan character. Also, they cannot be Cities, gestalts or superpowered guys. (Or else the RPG would be overrun by now)

That said, welcome aboard!
