#1, just like real life, most people are winging it!

#2, get good boots and more socks than you ever imagined.

#3, have you read this stuff ? http://www.lorientrust.com/in-game/new-players.html

Other than that, what sort of questions have you, or do you not even know what questions to have yet? :-)

Thanks for the resource, what i meant was for instance in the bears faction what kind of mentality/ ideals do they have? do i need to be a certain race to be in these factions? what does it mean by character group? Thanks again!

OOC Group is a kind of "admin layer" between the individual character and the Faction.
They would have a named leader who could be a point of contact for all of them.

IC Group is a number of people who know each other and come from the same place (usually).
They could be from the same village or military unit or such. Often they will have "matching" clothing. ("colours").

If you don't have a group to associate with on the booking form then the LT Office will put you in the general "People of the [Faction]" group.
This year the LT have just been more fussy with organising groups, requiring new groups to be of 7 or more people.

That link has a link from it labelled "Factions". Click through them. The leaders' names will be out of date, I suspect.

In a few words, as a mapping to European cultures, etc
Bears - Celtic Scots
Dragons - Gaelic Welsh & Irish
Gryphons - Gaulish French/Spanish
Harts - Arthurian English
Lions - English?? (long IC history, Harts split from Lions in '96)
Jackals - Arabian
Tarantulas - Underdark Drow?
Unicorns - ummm... don't easily map!
Vipers - Teutonic
Wolves - Norse
