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!

New gifting option: you can now purchase a gift certificate for RPG Crossing.
Dec 14, 2021 - 10:42 AM - by Birched
I have added a new option for gifting! You can now purchase a gift certificate for a one year membership at RPG Crossing!

Stocking stuffer idea?

Have fun!

(Please note that Membership & Charity Drive rewards are based on when an account is paid for, and not when gift certificates are purchased, for example. If an account is purchased using a gift card before the end of December, however, it will be eligible for the drive rewards as usual.)

New game categories added for PbtA and Traveller! #ttrpg #pbta #traveller
Dec 12, 2021 - 6:50 PM - by Birched
Hey Traveller and PbtA GMs!

I did a little restructuring requested by some of the CS members in their "wishes" thread. I've increased support for the Traveller and PbtA systems, including:
  • added parent game forums to hold games in these systems
  • added support to the game request tools so that these systems can be selected and new games will automatically go to the right place
  • added prefixes for these systems to the "Games Seeking" forum
  • moved a load of games from each system from the "Other" category to their new home

Please note that while future games should be supported automatically, changes to older games are not automatic.
  • If you find that your game is still in the "Other" category, and you would like it moved, please send me a pm (similarly, if I moved it, but you want it back in "Other").
  • If you have an advert currently running and would like the prefix changed from "Other", please pm me or ask any moderator to fix it for your advert thread.
  • Please update your game's designated system in your GM control panel, which you can find at the bottom of its description.

Please let me know if you have any questions or run into any problems. Game on!

We are happy to announce the publication of the 31st issue of Explosive Runes Magazine, just in time for the holidays!

Once more, our marvelous group of volunteers led by wodine put together a fantastic issue, which contains interviews with your fellow gamers, news from around our site, and tips and tricks to improve your gaming.

Explosive Runes is the magazine published by RPG Crossing. It features articles that can help you enhance your games, increase enjoyment, and improve role playing skills. It is even a great read for those who just follow games and don’t play!

If you'd like to drop by with compliments or comments, or perhaps ask about getting involved in future issues, I've opened a discussion thread... [Read More]
