I have to echo Lyarie and people here. I find it more fun when I'm supporting others with their plots. Usually, I find something to cling on to and have my character's story build around that. It really makes my characters' stories more enjoyable and to roleplay that way.

RE: Need Help Understanding Arabel's Current Setting
No Divine Marches currently. They can happen though.
I believe the Silence is still going on.
There are no PC Banites that I know of currently, but the group I was with established the Green Flames temple in Old Town after Divine Marching on the Temple of the Triumvirate. So there is a faction base for Banite PCs.
D&D/Forgotten Realm Resources
Does anyone know a place where I find resources for things that exist in D&D?
I'm specifically looking for a place where I can read about all the herbs/poisons (random stuff you can basically put in a potion) that exist in the Forgotten Realms setting.
RE: DM censoring on the forums
I'm a big believer that text alone does not fully portray a person's 'message.' There's just so much missing from the message - body language and tone, to name a few. I've been misunderstood many times by talking to others thinking I was upset or mad, including DMs.
So I understand why DMs would want to delete the posts to prevent misconceptions arising because ultimately, as @Mr-Moloch has said, this is their house.
But I believe this goes both ways....
I have to agree with @Thune about the recent announcement. Personally, I feel there were unnecessary use of some particular words. For example, "We were very disappointed that DM-Sandman did not agree to adhere to these guidelines and harmed some relationships in the NWN community by venting his problems out of context to others in a way that strained friendships and, we feel, were misleading to those who heard them." The announcement felt like it was beginning to become subjective. It should have ended with, "Ultimately we had creative differences and the majority of the DM team agreed to have Sandman removed."
It scares me, as a player, to see DMs have the ability to phrase announcements like this with no ability to reply to the thread. I can't help but to think, "What if this happens to me one day?" (Hopefully speaking out like this doesn't burn all my bridges with the DM team. D:)
@CaptainFantastic I also understand the 'ninja-booting' if there is no longer trust. I would not be able to trust that person from doing something to the security of the server or whatever you guys have hidden on the DM side. So I have no issues there. Again, ultimately it is someone else's house - something we all have to understand. If the homeowner wants something done, whether you believe it right or wrong, the homeowner has the right to do that.
As to divert away from the OP's original post, I am immensely upset at the departure of @Twisted-Flame and @T-Bone . They were 2 of the 6 welcoming players to me upon my arrival in CoA ( @TheTwistingWind , @coamaniac , @Puffy , and @SpiffyMeister are the other 4.) I'm not entirely sure and likely never will find out what truly happened due to not experiencing it first hand.
