That wouldn't be an issue, Elder Oblex. If you've played any d20-based RPG, you can play 13th Age. I'm happy to help with that part, as well. So far the other two interested parties sounded more interested in 13th Age than OSR, but you could always toss your hat in the ring for OSR and make me pick one to learn better.

Is Trophy Gold considered an OSR? Does it even work for PbP? I've always wanted to learn it. I know thousands of OSRs are out there though!

This is the first I've heard of it, to be honest.

My game-to-be is looking like 13th Age for certain, since I have a couple more interested in the weird setting. If that's of interest, we're discussing solo threads versus player interaction at present.

New games/rulesets always intimidate me.

Depending on how easy it is to wrap my poor brain around, I'm giving a tentative might be interested...

By all means! I've already promised others in that thread that I'll help with mechanics, and so we've been more focused on story items. I'll add you as tentative interest to the list I'm keeping over there. Feel free to weigh in on any of the conversation.

Good morning, Good afternoon and Good evening,

Out of nostalgia, I was looking for PBP place to chill and relax with some flexible-time-frame-rpg gaming. I used to play a lot and then adulthood happened somehow...

Name's Wind. Nothing special, just an absolute casual, who is too afraid to play TTRPG irl with people, so needs to hide behind a screen and keyboard, in order to avoid anxiety attacks... o.o

Happy to make make your acquaintance *bow*

Welcome to RPG Crossing, Wind! Adulthood happens to us all, shame as it may be. (I actually had to adult today, so I think I may be feeling rather sympathetic...)

Screen and keyboard can help a lot of us play. Nothing wrong with that! If you haven't already taken a peek in the New Member Introductions forum, whether you post a thread or not, you should, because there's some helpful tips and suggestions in the stickied thread at the top of the forum. If you do post a thread, you'll get welcomes and suggestions from a bunch of helpful souls who have a lot of experience with new members.

I hope you find some games to scratch that gaming itch. Welcome, again, and happy gaming!

Welcome! In addition to what we offer here, have you come across our New Player Solo Game options as well? You seem pretty clued-in on PbP already but if you felt like you needed a primer on site workings/PbP conventions, and a chance to go 1-on-1 in a system from the list, it's there for you to take up.

Just getting back into tabletop, but currently live in a country where I am not a native speaker, so finding English in-person games is even rougher than normal. So, I puttered around the web for a while and have started setting up and applying for games on pbp sites like this one.

The problem I keep running into is game death/stagnation. Even if I'm lucky enough to win the player lottery to get into games, the pace is set by the slowest poster, and teamwork is...not as good as in-person. While I get that everyone wants to be 'the hero', I think it would be easier to play a solo game and host one in return. So I found my way here!

Hello everyone, I have come to this site in search of a way to better get my D&D fix since my former group members are all of the married w/ kids variety and I recently moved to the boonies where finding an RL group seems to be quite hard.

I have been a D&D DM for almost 20 years now, running almost entirely 3.5e with some limited pathfinder in there. I recently ran three sessions with 5e and am slowly transitioning to that system. I don't play as a PC very often, I don't really enjoy it although I have never played 1 on 1 before so who knows.

I am hoping to pick up a game or two here with a focus on short and focused adventures to try out this whole PbP thing and get an idea of best practices.

It is a pleasure to meet you all.

Hi, CC! I remember you from the general Introductions thread! Welcome to the Solo Bazaar section of the site.
So are you interested in giving 5e solo a shot here, or were you looking for a different system. This is a great way to learn a system as you play with someone, and I think your approach of doing some one shots is great. What type of adventures would you like to try out?

Hi bananabadger,

I am looking for 5e or 3.5e, I actually wrote out a description for 3 potential adventures over in the matchmaking thread. Some relatively simple concepts that can have a lot of depth to them and can be adjusted to the character that a potential player wants to play. A race/defend the innocent style adventure, a good old fashioned missing person mystery, and a dungeon delve with some very fun potential twists with the right character.

Another I am noodling but won't commit to being willing to run is a heist adventure, one where a criminal or criminal adjacent character is working to steal back an old artifact from a criminal organization that is going to auction it off soon. The adventure would focus on the recon and planning of the heist, with the end goal that the actual heist would occur as a cinematic style series of posts at the end similar to one of the ocean's movies.

So we would roleplay and play through the recon, the planning, the hitting a roadblock and changing plans, etc. And then on "the night" we would dramatically simplify the rolls/turns to glide through the plan and fall backs like a montage ending with the conclusion and hopefully a good solid outsmarting of the villain.

I love the concept but the mechanics of doing it would need the right player and Player character, since the fun would be to figure out exactly how to do it as opposed to using things like disable device checks or search checks.
