Greetings from Aralon, the world where anything is possible.

Hey all,
been playing DnD in its various forms since i was a preteen, we'll just not mention how many years that is exactly, but its been quite a few lol. anyhow, my preferred online play format is play by post, so lets see if this site works out for me lol. i have run my 'Aralon' online and offline in several different iterations, but have gotten tired of being the forever DM so now im looking to be a player. hope to meet some of yall in the games and lets all have a good time.


Edit:
Im preferable to 3.5e, pf1e, d20 modern, d20 future. these are the ones i have experience playing, but would like to learn starwars d20 and shadowrunner d20. i hear the cringes now on that last one lol. as for genre, im pretty much open and can work within the parameters of whatever games im playing in. as far as the genre of my own personal realm setting its really a free for all since i play my world as more of a sandbox setting then a fully structured campaign. i typically play either a rogue or a wizard type class, though not preferential to race typically. and lastly a woodchuck would chuck all the wood but i woodchuck dont chuck wood, lmao.

Howdy Darnahroc,

Is there anything special about your username. Perhaps it's a name from an old PC of yours? Tell us a bit more about yourself. Which version of D&D do you prefer? My favorite is AD&D but 5e is giving it a run for its money. How about genre, do you prefer high magic, low magic, high tech, horror, sci fi/future tech etc.? Do you have a favorite character class, race? Do you have any plans to try other RPG systems? Do you know how much wood a woodchuck chucks, if a woodchuck, could chuck wood?

There are a lot of choices for various RPG systems here, although PF and D&D are the two most common. We have quite a few games with very long legs here. In fact, I talk about one below. To start, you may want to check out a solo game. This will help you learn the site tools, since each site is a bit different.

As far as finding games goes, try here. This is where there are games seeking players. It can be a bit daunting but don't give up. It may take a few applications before you get accepted...but it's worth it once you're in. 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.

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.

welcome!

This is a great place to get your PC fix... You can have one or two or more PC's active, and even be a GM at the same time, if you want (and have the time/energy). Lots of GM's come here to do just what you are... get their fix of the other side of the screen.

Happy gaming!

Hi, Darnahroc! Welcome to the site! I see you are looking for a 3.5 game. Hope you find one to your liking! I know there are a few out there, though 5e tends to be the more common D&D option. Look forward to seeing you around the boards!

Welcome Darnahroc! I think you'll find many forever-DMs here to squeeze in a little time on the player side of the table, so you are among friends.

So, tell us about Aralon!

Goodday Darnahroc,

+1 to the question about your username, it's intriguing so even I wonder what it could mean ;-)

But, first of all -> welcome over here. Loved your introduction post, and I am wondering if you have found a game yet? Already working on an application, and if so; what/who are you creating? (Class, Race, background)
