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!

Starfinder sheet delay (sorry folks!)
Jan 17, 2018 - 2:19 PM - by Birched
I know I said I've have Starfinder sheets done by Jan 15, but clearly I've missed that mark. Real life has reared ugly heads, I'm afraid, and I've had to set a new goal of a week from today (Jan 24). At that point I hope to have sheets done that are based on our current Pathfinder sheets, and I will post in current Starfinder games and game ads to ask for people to give them a whirl.

December Post of the Month
Jan 08, 2018 - 9:59 AM - by dirkoth
December; A time of year for holidays and family, when you can't swing an RPGX moderator on a rope, without hitting a holiday somewhere. Despite all that, we had some dedicated folks remember the reason for the gaming season, and nominate their favorite post for Post of the Month.

There may not have been many posts this month, but boy, were they GOOD! 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 ... Wynamoinen!

Go be baffled with Hansi, a poor soldier struggling through a suddenly expanded life, forced beyond his peasant upbringing to learn how to interact with Royalty, and stand among Heroes (with the capital H).

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

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

The PotM contest for January 2018 is going on now (as well as the judging for Post of the Year from among the monthly winners of 2017). 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 win, if you don't do YOUR part, and nominate.
Membership & Charity Drive PDF bundle has been sent out via pm!

Hi all,

Just a quick update: I have just sent out the Michael McCarthy PDF prize pack for the membership and charity drive. If you renewed your own one-year membership, received a one-year membership as a gift, donated $10 or more through our team donation page, donated matching funds, or purchased a t-shirt, and did NOT receive this pm, please let me know!

Thanks again to Michael McCarthy for this generous donation to all drive participants, and to all who participated in the drive!!!
Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year And Best Wishes For 2018!

I'm sitting in my living room on January 1, 2018, thinking back on the year that was. RPG Crossing community members told stories, played games, shared witty remarks, made helpful observations, and told us about challenges they faced in their lives. Together you have maintained and strengthened this great oasis on the internet.

We capped the year off with our December membership and charity drive. Not only does this support the continued existence of our community by helping to pay the bills (memberships are our primary way of doing this) but also it is emblematic of how our community can have real and positive effects in the world. Together, we donated $1570 to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, which will support research grants that target improving the lives of those affected by mental illness. This absolutely crushes last year's total of $925, which was already pretty awesome. Thank you to everyone who participated by buying a membership, buying a t-shirt, matching donations, donating prizes for participation, or donating directly to the BBR Foundation! I won't embarrass them by pointing them out, but there were a few bigger contributors who really helped create this success -- thank you! I hope that everyone enjoys their bonus months and PDF packs, and please, please make an effort to write an online review of any PDF prize you... [Read More]

Thank you to everyone who participated in RPG Crossing's December membership and charity drive! Together, the RPG Crossing community raised $1570 to support mental health research to improve the lives of those affected by mental illness!

I'll add the CS bonus months later today, and post the updated membership expiry date list in the same thread as previous years for you to double check. And I guess I'd better get to work on that Starfinder character sheet!

A big thank you to all those who offered special prizes during the drive:
  • Thank you to Michael McCarthy, who will be assembling a PDF bundle of his RPG accessories to send out very soon to all participants! So generous!
  • Thank you to Warren Wurzburger, who will be shipping signed copies of his book "Memoirs of a Fire Chaplain" to those who participated during the last 12 hours of the drive!
  • Thank you to Pelgrane Press, who donated seven copies of The Strangling Sea during the drive!
  • Thank you to Evil Hat, who donated four $25 PDF prize packs during the drive!
  • Thank you to Magpie Games, who donated six of their published PDFs during the drive!

And thank you to all... [Read More]
