New to this

Hey everyone, I have been playing TTRPG games for years and have honestly never heard of pbp until recently. I am very excited to get started as someone who enjoys writing I find this an amazing way to be creative in our games.

Hi, Sharkbait! Welcome to the site! Always great to have a veteran player join us. What are your favorite systems? Do you mostly play or GM your games? A little bit of both?

Welcome, Sharkbait1004! And thanks for bringing your RPing experiences with you!

That's so cool that you've roleplaying but have never heard about PbP before. I was so glad to find PbP myself a few years ago. And I've found that PbP often allows for much more in-depth roleplaying than table-top. I hope you enjoy it!

If you haven't already, I suggest you consider applying for a New Player Solo Game. You'll get matched up with an experience PbP GM that will take you through a fun solo adventure and teach you the ropes of play-by-post at the same time. It's the perfect way to get started while also perhaps applying to a few other games!

Thank you everyone for the response. I will GM on occasion, but prefer to be a player in a game. I mostly play DND 5e, but I am willing to learn other systems. I did play 3.5 and some pathfinder first edition.

Howdy Sharkbait1004,

Sorry for the late welcome but I have been fighting a nasty virus that turned into a bacterial infection...darn near pneumonia. You have definitely found the place to meet new people and to write! D&D 5e is our most played game. There are a lot of opportunities to play 5e. We also have a huge selection of other games as well. Tell us a bit more about yourself. 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 another RPG system? 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.

Goodday Sharkbait1004,

- what a cool username, really love the Sharknado movies but I am guessing that wasn't your inspiration to choose this username? -

Welcome over here, better late than never, and how are you doing? Have you joined a 5E game, or are you working on an application?
