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!

It's FATE! Evil Hat prize packs for each of the next four participants in our drive!
Dec 15, 2017 - 3:49 PM - by Birched
UPDATE: The Evil Hat Productions prize packs have all been claimed. Thanks, Evil Hat!

It must be FATE! To support our membership and charity drive, Evil Hat Productions has thrown the RPG Crossing adventuring party some loot, but you've got to be quick! I have four $25 PDF prize packs for each of the next four people to participate in our drive by purchasing a membership.

How it will work:
  1. You will supply me with an email address, which I will share with Evil Hat. [If you don't want to share your e-mail address, please do support RPG Crossing's membership and charity drive anyway, but this particular offer won't work.]
  2. Each contributor picks their selection of up to $25 of electronic product from the Evil Hat webstore.
  3. A $5 donation will be made to the Brain and Behaviour Research Foundation by RPG Crossing, as with all memberships this month.
  4. You will also receive the PDF bundle that all participants in the drive are getting.

If you have any interest in FATE you are making money on this one, but here's the catch: if you pick one of these up, I want to see some FATE games in the GMs... [Read More]
November Post of the Month
Dec 14, 2017 - 1:44 PM - by Admin RonarsCorruption
November; when the Holiday season turns into the fast lane! Despite the hectic schedules for many, and the upcoming final exams for some, we had a nice batch of gamers nominated for their excellent postings!

It was a tight contest this month, with every single post receiving accolades among the judges. However, in the end, only one can be chosen, and one was.

I am happy to announce that the Post of the Month winner for November 2017 is ... Kjelldon!

From the initial excitement of the first line, readers are immediately drawn into the post Kjelldon makes. It's easy to get lost, and feel the wind and sea spray whipping through your hair as well, as you read the narrative here. Go, enjoy it, take a little 'vacation' on the briny sea. Vacation, as in, risking your life with a daring ship's pilot!

You can read the winning entry HERE, so please, go and enjoy it!

Please congratulate Kjelldon and be sure to enjoy the other nominations from November 2017. You can find them here. Each is an inspirational entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for December 2017 is going on now. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month, and let's reward those among us with praise for their prose! They can't... [Read More]
More swag at $400 raised now BBRF! Thank you matching donors and Mike McCarthy!
Dec 11, 2017 - 8:26 PM - by Birched
To the RPG Crossing site members donating cash to serve as matching donations, or in some cases as straight donations to be applied for the general betterment of the site, I salute you!

Also, in my last 'we're levelling up!' post about RPG Crossing's charity and membership drive, I asked who Michael McCarthy is. So here's the deal: he's a super-well reviewed RPG industry game designer, a great all around guy, and is known as Admin Ronarscorruption on this site. Yup, the same guy who runs games here, made and runs the CSEA for community supporters, and helps administer this community. He's put a lot into RPG Crossing, and clearly he's not done giving. I'm just going to go ahead and suggest that next time you are thinking about a new adventure, check out his stuff. A lot of it is on drivethrurpg, and you can find out more by googling 'Michael McCarthy RPG' -- the first page except for the 'Dropship' thing is all him. And I'm going to suggest you go even further: if you use his stuff, please go out of the way to write a review. Mike has already given a lot to this community; maybe it's time to give something back.

Straight Path Games is his new personal project, but hold off on buying any of... [Read More]
The charity contribution is doubled to $10 for the next 10 memberships purchased
Dec 10, 2017 - 8:51 PM - by Birched
An anonymous site member* has made a generous donation "in honour of Squeak", which will double RPG Crossing's charity donation to the BBR Foundation for the next 10 memberships purchased as part of our drive! Each of these memberships will have matching funding so that $10 instead of $5 will be donated to the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, which is great for them and their good work, and brings us closer to more cool goals. We're more than half way to an extra month of CS for all December drive participants, as well!

*Squeak swears it wasn't him (or at least, I'm sure he would if I asked him)
