Hey, are you new to the site and confused about how play by post gaming works? Maybe you are new, have some idea how the site works but want a chance to try a game out to make sure this is what you are looking for. Or maybe you just want someone to walk you through the basics in a game like atmosphere.

Well if any of those sound like you then why not check into playing a solo game called..........

The Tower of Mage Newby

This is a solo game to teach new site members and players on this site the basics to help them along. If you are interested please post here. Just post that you would like to have a game. You need not have a character concept decided upon, or character sheet created, prior to being accepted.

Every new member who wants to play will be accepted!

However, to keep this as manageable as possible, there are a few things we ask of you:
  • PLEASE DO NOT APPLY FOR MORE THAN ONE GAME. Our DMs' time is limited and there are many waiting, it doesn't matter which version you play with regards to your mastery of site mechanics - in fact all the games have the same basic plot, so it wouldn't do any good to play multiple ones.
  • Please make only ONE (1) post in this thread. Making more posts won't put you ahead in the queue.
  • You will only be contacted through private messages if you have 4 or more posts, so please ensure that you have 4 or more posts.
  • Only post in this thread if you want to play 5e. If you want to play a different edition, please visit the relevant thread:
    • The DnD 3.5e application thread,
    • The PF application thread,
    • The DnD 4e application thread,
    • The 13th Age application thread.
  • If you notice that there are no new players waiting, that's because we've gotten them all! We delete posts as they come in so we can keep track of who has a game already. If there are no posts, that's because you're up next, so feel free to make one.
  • Are you a Community Supporter as well as a New Member? Please go to the special Community Supporter application thread and we'll make sure to get to you as fast as we can.
  • If you have any further issues or questions, please send zevonian or myself a PM.

New MembersSome of you may have noticed that your username is in Yellow, this is because you are a brand new member and have been labeled (and restricted) accordingly. Our efforts to maintain a spam-free environment for gaming are one of the reasons we have done this. All you need to do is make 4 posts that count towards your post count and your member name will change to Blue and you will gain all the privileges of a 'regular' member. You can read more about all that here. You can post here, for example.


Some Additional RemarksWe are all doing this on a voluntary basis and dedicate a huge piece of time out of our lives to this. It could take some time for us to reach your post, but please be patient - we like to play, too! While you're waiting, feel free to check out other parts of the site like General Discussion or apply for "normal" group games in DMs Seeking Players.

For those of you who are new to the game, try reading through the Basic Rules while you wait. It's all the rules you'll need to play. If you have at least a basic understanding of the concepts of the game from reading this, it helps the games run a lot smoother. You can also check out this section for examples of how to create a character.

AddendumNote to all applicants: For those of you that want to mull over character options before your game starts, you should focus on a 1st level non-evil alignment based character. Different DMs may allow different source material, but for 5e games, you will likely be sticking to the Basic Rules, or if you already own one, the Players Handbook.

On behalf of all the NPSG DMs, we welcome you to RPGCrossing.com and wish you Great Gaming!

Hello there,

I've been playing d&d 5e for a couple of years, and would really like to try out the pbp format. Really love that you have such a well-established and welcoming intro adventure for newbies, and am super interested to give it a go!

Would love to play through a 5e module


I am interested in learning how to play in D&D 5e system, and going through a solo module sounds like just the way to get more familiar with it! I have some experience in other systems and I have been reading the 5e Player's Handbook, but I have not played in a D&D 5e game before.

Many thanks in advance!
