If you'd like to craft stories and play role playing games
with thousands of people from around the world,
you've come to the right place!

RPG Crossing is a 40,000+ member online community that focuses on play by post role playing games (PBP RPG) and features such systems as Dungeons and Dragons (2e, 3e, 3.5e, 4e, 5e), Pathfinder, GURPS, d20 Modern, Serenity, Star Wars, Storytelling (World of Darkness) and many more. We are an active community with many new games looking for players every day, and with plentiful guides and tutorials for the new player and the veteran alike, including: New Player Solo Games to introduce new players to PBP and/or RPing; and DM Mentoring - a forum full of collaborative DM tools.

We also publish Explosive Runes, a terrific free role playing magazine with stunning artwork and great articles.

Free membership also gives access to our character sheets. We currently host over 82000 sheets for 10 different role playing systems!

Hall of Fame Nominations 2016
Jul 25, 2016 - 3:16 PM - by Nimlos
Every year, we ask our community to nominate the finest, most exceptional games on this site for inclusion in the prestigious Hall of Fame. It's that time again - time for the Hall of Fame 2016!

So, as of today, July 25, 2016, we're reopening nominations for the Hall of Fame.

Here's your chance. Look over your games, see which one of them amazes you or shows the great writing on RPG Crossing, and come over to this thread to nominate it for inclusion in the Hall of Fame!

Please read the rules carefully before nominating, then show us where to find the best games on the site!
Forums are back up

Thanks for your patience during maintenance this morning. I've been upgrading parts and tightening a lot of loose gears over the past couple of weeks, and today was no different. I test all changes as much as I can before deployment, but there's nothing like an onslaught of roleplayers and writers to really break things, so please be sure to let me know if you see anything odd.

Have fun!

RPG Crossing will go down for maintenance at 8 AM Eastern (12 PM UTC) on Tuesday for about a half hour. I don't expect problems, but if there are any issues I'll keep you updated.
Forum Maintenance, 10 AM Eastern Monday
Jul 11, 2016 - 12:06 AM - by Birched
At 10 AM Monday, Eastern Time (2:00 PM Monday, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)) the site will go down for up to an hour for maintenance and security enhancements. I'll have it back up as quickly as possible, but these are important changes that cannot wait.

During the down time, please feel free to post to our Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ pages if you have questions or concerns; I will try to check those pages periodically.

You can also join in the conversation at the unofficial RPG Crossing chatzy instance.
These answers could change everything! (...aka "Please share your thoughts!")

Dear RPG Crossing members,

We think this community is amazing and in many ways is 'just right'. Thirteen years after the inception of RPG Crossing as DnDOnlineGames, however, we would like to give our users an opportunity to express their thoughts.

We get some input already from the Community Supporters in their 'wishes' thread, amongst other avenues, but we think it is important to get some input from the entire community. Please consider spending five to ten minutes of your time to give us an idea of your priorities as a community member.

Our goal is to use the survey answers to help guide us in directions that make everyone's time here as enjoyable as possible.

Please help! Click on this link to visit our survey!

ADDED INCENTIVE: anyone who currently has a CS membership or buys one within the next six months will have a bonus month added automatically to their membership within a day or two if they complete more than 75% of the survey (but please try to answer all the questions you can!)

Many thanks to DAquilina for all his help with the code for this survey.

If you have any difficulties using the survey, please pm Birched or comment in the
