If you'd like to craft stories and play role playing games

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.

To quote lostcheerio's words of praise; "...... these scenes are particularly elegant, as each PC going unconscious experiences it in a different, personal way. And then there's the mechanics -- spells flying, missiles flying, multi-level terrain, just wow. As a player, I so appreciate all the work and care that goes into writing a post like this, both creatively and technically. Applause from under the fallen paladin's shield!"

There was so much 'wow' in this recommendation, that the judges agreed and could see exactly what lostcheerio meant, and shared their view. Meaning: CONGRATS to Fillyjonk for their winning post!!!!!! Please read, enjoy, and click on those scales to show your RPXP love for this winning post!!!
