Hello hello

Hi all! Iím brightfame - new here and looking forward to trying out some play by post RP (which I only learned was a thing last week). I played quite a few TTRPGs in high school (mainly 3.5e DnD) but got out of the habit in college. Iíve had the itch again for the past few years after I started listening to a couple of actual play podcasts. Any other Friends at the Table fans here?

Iím hoping play by post might be easier to fit into a busy schedule and looking forward to trying out a new player solo game after Iíve made my first four posts.

Goodmorning brightfame,

Welcome over here and that username does peek some interest; are you... famous? Like very bright famous? Should we all know you? ;-)
Besides that, cool that you signed up and made an introduction post. Haven't listened to the 'Friends at the Table' podcast, but I have to confess I barely find the time to listen to podcasts at all.

Clever to get started with the New Player Solo adventure, best way to learn, have you decided what system you want to give a try yet?

Welcome!

Glad you learned about PBP... never too late to find a good hobby. We are easy to fit into schedules... so I hope you find some interesting games, and can expand your imagination here. Happy gaming!

Hello, brightfame! Welcome to the site. There are some college itches that should never again be scratched ... but RPGs aren't one of them. Glad you are here to scratch away!

So...a D&D background, eh? What type of characters do you usually play? What is the most cinematic moment one of your characters ever lived through?

Howdy brightfame, welcome to the RPG Crossing.

I agree with Choco that starting off with the New Player Solo Game is an awesome way to get past the learning curve of the logistics of how things work here. I highly recommend it.

I also want to confirm that this is an excellent place for those who want to play but have limited time and dynamic schedules that are prohibitive to regular game night in person.

Let us know if you have any questions, most here are usually happy to give answers if we can.

Enjoy your time here.

Welcome, brightfame! PbP is such a fun way to roleplay. And the perfect way to RP on a busy schedule . I hope you enjoy your New Player Solo Adventure! Thatís a great way to learn all of the ins and outs of PbP.

Not famous yet but there's always time! Not even a particularly good backstory - it's just the meaning of my IRL name. Looking at the games currently open for applications it seems like 5e would be a good choice. I quite like the feel of PbtA games I've listened to but those seem to be very few and far between here. I've also been hearing a lot more people talking about pathfinder of late so maybe at some point I'll give that a go...

Well I was the only one who owned any of the books so I usually ended up DMing - don't think I was ever any good though because I don't remember a single cinematic moment I ever managed to create for my players!

Hi - this is a great place to get a little of what you like and a lot of what you fancy. Even not having the rules isn't always a barrier to getting into a game, sometimes the free starter rules can be enough so look for fun as well as rules (this is my goto excuse to buy more books)

 


Yeah - that names a blinder as its too bright fa me
