Working on a new website

My friend is making an old school runescape private server, based on how the game was when we played it YEARS ago. We don't like where the new one has gone. My friend is doing most of the server sided coding, I've been tasked with the task of creating the website. I took a webdesign class in 10th grade, but it was really basic. I'm using dreamweaver, currently, if anyone would like to give me a hand, I'd be glad to accept it! 

If you're simply looking for some type of generic forums you could look into myBB (free!) or vBulliten; Both have their fair share of great plugins and themes.
