Greetings!

Hi everyone,

Looking forward to being part of the community! I have pbp experience. Am looking to get involved in some 5e games and maybe (more obscurely) Star Trek: Adventures.

Welcome to RPG Crossing, ExiledPandas! Glad to have you here! Have fun looking around, and don't be shy about signing up for a new player solo game even if you have 5e and PBP experience; sometimes it's helpful to have a friendly person to help you hit the ground running. Let us know if you have any questions!

Hi, ExiledPandas! If you have to be exiled, it's always better to go out with an entire cupboard of pandas!

Welcome to the site. It's cool you have PbP experience and know what types of games you want to play. A 5e game should be easy to locate, Star Trek games come up less frequently but they do launch every now and then.

Enjoy exploring all the nooks and crannies of the site; look forward to seeing you around the boards!

welcome!

Glad to have you, but I have to ask... where were you exiled from? No shame in it... My brother Squeak has been exiled from a dozen places. Kroger, Wal Mart, grade school, etc.. your name makes me wonder where you were pushed out of.

Wherever it was, glad you are here. Happy gaming!

Hi everyone, thanks for the warm welcomes! Since it seems to be a reoccurring question: I was exiled from the one place only panda could be exiled from...Bamboo er...museum. Yeah.

Welcome to RPG Crossing.

I too 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.

Howdy Panda,

I love the username! But, exiled from where...or what?

It sounds like you are an experienced player. I'm a D&D guy too (5e now but my favorite is AD&D) who enjoys fantasy, but I have played many other RPG systems. If you are looking for a place to role play, and not just roll play, this is it. Well, there is some incredible role playing going on here. I thought I was a a pretty good story teller, but I have been put to shame by the quality of some of the players...and I have learned a lot. I sent a link to one such site I've been lucky enough to be a part of below. Of course, there are plenty of hack and slash games too, so take your pick.

As others have 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 bit over two 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.

Welcome, ExiledPandas! Thanks for bringing your PbP experience to the site! You'll have no problem finding a few 5E games to join, and there are always Star Trek(ish) games, if not full on Star Trek games happening on the site.

Happy Gaming!

Welcome, always good to see new people joining and there is plenty of 5e but also plenty of other systems too. I was a 5e dabbler but the slower pace of pbp makes it a lot easier for me to catch up with rules as we play - no IRL waiting for someone to read a page or two to figure out a roll. The only downside is the growing relationship between my CC and DriveThru

Goodmorning ExiledPandas,

Welcome over here and I have to confess your username made me burst out in laughter, I have seen them perform live on stage 90 years ago or sothinking of a song that I maybe can not link in here. Well, maybe with a warning NOT to click if you love panda's? (here we go)

Besides that, what have you been doing so far at the Crossing? Have you been creating characters and/or try and join a game?

Welcome Put Out Panda!

Here’s a tip! While browsing around, if you see some funky formatting in a post that you want to steal, there’s no need for a DEX check! Just click that Quote button and study the BBcode the poster used. Then you too can have posts that are

Unnecessarily Fancy
