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!

A heartfelt thank you to some retiring moderators
Jan 20, 2023 - 12:11 PM - by Birched
We'd like to express our deepest gratitude for the contributions of a couple of active moderators of our community who will be retiring today: Squeak, Moderator since 2016; and Unko Talok, Moderator since 2021 and also a Moderator from 2006 and Admin from 2007-2009 under the name Admin Sinner. Their tireless efforts have helped shape our community and make it the wonderful place it is today.

We have messages to the community from both of them:

I'd rather more active and excited people step up into staff roles, and that I not hang around and be inactive. Game on, y'all.

All charity drive rewards should be on their way
Jan 16, 2023 - 5:37 PM - by Birched
Today's excitement was that I received the longest paper receipt of my life. Relatedly, the rewards are taken care of now for the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation charity drive, and should either have already been received or are on their way. Thank you to everyone who participated! If you've ever checked out https://www.bbrfoundation.org you have seen that they fund important work. They also produce educational pieces for people to learn about the most recent research into mental illness, which you may find interesting.

And now, back to your regularly programmed fantasy worlds.

Be well!

PotM December

Despite the busy Month of December, there were still posts nominated (thank you Lentil Sponge, bananabadger, and Ildrahil!) and Noquarter19 managed to amaze the judges the most; CONGRATSZZZZZ!!!!. The nomination itself was full of praise because of Noquarter19's skill to tell the story of a very unlikeable character. In this post there was a breakthrough, the character, Vyeggar, managed to open up, and show their vulnerability. This post emphasized how broken and tragic the character was and it was just great writing.

Curious? (I certainly would be ;-) --> over here you can meet Vyeggra. And if you have clicked the link, do not forget to show some RPXP appreciation, and some community love by clicking that top right scales icon... [Read More]

If you are curious what happens when you report a post (or aren't sure what that even means), please take a look at the new thread What happens when I report a post? (how to deal with questionable material).

Thanks, and happy Thursday!

A chill weekend at RPG Crossing
Jan 07, 2023 - 12:51 PM - by Birched
Hey all,

We seem to have experienced some kind of DDOS attack this morning that was more difficult to contain than usual. I will continue to investigate, but for the time being, please be patient if you find that the site is difficult to access. If loading is very slow or pages aren't loading at all, please consider taking a break and returning later. Please do not contribute to the issue by trying to load many pages from the site in a short period of time.

Thank you for your understanding. The site alarms interrupted my morning of house cleaning; apologies if any of my desire for a reason to take a break from cleaning house might have triggered some kind of meta-phenomenon leading to site problems .

All the best and have a great weekend,
