Allow myself to introduce myself

Hello all,

I've table-topped gamed for a long time with RL friends, but as the four winds spread people to all corners of the Earth, I've not played in a bit. I mostly play some combo of space, sci-fi, modern, and/or horror, with WoD being something of a favourite but I'll try most any game/game system.

Hope to see you guys soon!

Welcome!

I see you found a place to get a couple more posts on your way to Avatar ownership! Huzzah!

We've got fans of all kinds of game systems, and many are eager for new imaginations. Happy gaming!

Welcome to RPG Crossing.

I highly recommend checking out the New Player Solo Game in the main forum's Solo Games/New Gamers folder. There are 13th Age, Call of Cthulhu, DnD (3.5, 4, 5), FATE, Pathfinder (1), and Travelers many game systems to pick from and once signed up, you will be paired with a patient and helpful GM that can help show you the ropes of how to do things at this site. They can also be an excellent person to ask any questions to while you are getting up to speed on things.

All these things can be done with the Hero System. Champions, Dark Champions, Star Hero, and Monster Hunter International (that is based on the novels of the same name).So, ever wanted to be a superhero fighting crime to make the world a safer place? Or don a mask and make the criminals fear your brand of justice? Or go where no man has gone before and explore the outer reaches of the known universe and beyond? Or have you ever wanted to join the Monster Hunter International (MHI) team to track down things that go bump in the night while the Monster Control Bureau (MCB) does everything they can to keep those things a secret and dreading the day you have to deal with the Special Task Force Unicorn (STFU) teams from the MCB?

Anyway, enjoy your time here and let us know if you have any questions.

Welcome to RPG Crossing, Lady Cesium! It looks like you may have also been welcomed by a DDOS attack, which has been rare here for many years. I hope that does not put you off from exploring and engaging with the community here. Have fun looking around, and I hope you find some great and horrifying scifi games!

Howdy Lady Cesium,

Is there a story behind your username?

Truth in lending, I'm a D&D player to my core. Lately it's been 5e, which I like a lot but my favorite version is AD&D. At one time or another I've played a whole host of RPGs. We have a little bit of everything here and lot of some games, D&D 5e and PF to be specific. Do you prefer games that tell stories or hack and slash? What is your favorite character class and race if you have one? Brie or feta?

This is a great place to scratch your RPG itch and interact with some great DMs and players. There is some incredible role playing going on here. I thought I was a pretty good story teller, but I have been put to shame by the quality of many of the players...and I have learned a lot. I sent a link to one such site below that has been going on continuously for over 40 years and has been only for close to twenty. I've been lucky to be a part of it for three years...so yes, there are some games that have longevity here. You should check out the Hall of Fame games over the years for others.

As Kenjitsu said, you may want to check out a solo game. Even if you have PbP experience each site is a bit different.

This is a place where the people are welcoming, where the games are interesting, and where generally they only expect you to post a few times a week. I've been playing D&D for a very long time and I thought I've seen it all, but this site has some amazing games going on. I've been playing (storytelling as much as rolling) for a few years now in a game that has been going on continuously for four decades, started tabletop and moved online two decades ago. It's set in an alternate Europe where the worlds of Tolkien and Howard existed in ages past. So there is a hint of LOTR and a hint of Conan in it and since it's set in an alt Europe it somehow feels familiar.

This is just one example and there are other great campaigns on RPGX. You should take some time to "stroll around" the site and see if anything catches your eye.

I hope to see you around on the boards.

It's not very deep; I love books/movies with a Bohemian and/or late 19th century setting (stuff like Pride and Prejudice or Little Women), hence the 'Lady'. The 'Cesium' comes as I have a temper and tend to explode

I have also put in a request for a solo game, see how that goes

Welcome - good to know about the name, will refrain from the 'cold bucket of water' calming technique unless we are all feeling experimental

Do you prefer to play or GM and what other systems do you like?
