Hi! New player curious to see how this works

Savoy on the Traveller RPG Discord server mentioned this site. I've never played by post, so I'm curious to see how it works. I'm open to trying a variety of game systems, though I did come here specifically to check out Traveller, which I haven't played n a really long time

Hey Ghost walking! Welcome to the site.
I'm in a Savoylen game that is converting to Traveller rules, so I'm trying to learn the system. What do you like about it? What games have you played in it?
But also...glad to see you here, at RPGCrossing. There has been an influx of Traveller system gamers joining, but some of the more well-known RPGs are really popular as well. If you look around the game threads you'll get an idea for all the variety of games here.
Hope to see you around the boards!

welcome!

glad Savoy enticed you to come. I think you'll pick up your Traveller gaming skills right where you left off! They come back easily.

Happy gaming!

Welcome, ghostwalking! A good way to see how PbP works is to get into a New Player Solo Game. You could always get into a Traveler game, or try out another system. Hope you enjoy it!

Goodmorning ghostwalking,

Welcome over here and cool you were recommended! Have you been cruising the site yet and spotted some Traveler or other games you would like to make an application for? (do you have a character in mind yet, if so, what race and class?)

Hey there, ghostwalker! Welcome to the site. Are you a ghost who walks, or a walker who happens to walk in/through ghosts? Or is this more like ghost writing, where someone else walks, but you claim that you did it?

It does seem like Savoylen has been recruiting a lot of Traveler players to the site! That's awesome. I hope that you have a lot of fun with it.

If you've got any questions, let us know. We're happy to help.

EDIT: I just realized that I messed up your username, and now my jokes are entirely unfunny!... Which I assure you is not usually the case. I swear.

Welcome to the club chummer!

It's always nice to see smaller systems getting the love they deserve. I recently joined a few Traveler groups myself to see what all the fuss is about and I've liked what I've seen so far!

Are there any other systems you like to play? Pathfinder and D&D5 may be the big dogs around here but you can find just about anything if you're patient enough. I'm a Shadowrun and Warhammer 40k man myself.

Let us know if there is anything we can do to help you settle in!

Thanks for the warm welcome, all!
Addressing multiple questions in one response:

I'm returning to tabletop RPG after a long hiatus. I used to referee as often as play. I'm currently playing AD&D2e and Starfinder campaigns with friends (via Zoom). But there are a bunch of other systems I'm curious about and haven't had a chance to try.

Systems I've played in the past: D&D (oe, 1e, 2e), The Fantasy Trip, RuneQuest, Palladium, Traveller (original), Top Secret, Boot Hill

I last played Traveller in maybe 1982 or 83? But I was never able to get a campaign going. There's a lot about it that appeals to me, even though I don't have many sessions clocked with it.

My name comes from an habit I used to have of appearing or disappearing when the time was right. It was sort of a game. Even though I don't really do that anymore, the moniker stuck.

Welcome to the site ghostwalking! Are there any other editions of Traveler that you have looked? I've played the original edition though it was back in the mid-80's but lately I've been curious about the latest edition and the current campaign that they're releasing for it.

I've looked at Cepheus and Mongoose. I've found the best way to vet a system is to play it, so I'm hoping to find a game
