Howdy tomtermite,

I'm an old grognard too. I remember back in the day when Avalon Hill and SPI were all the rage. Tell us a bit more about yourself. What are your RPG likes and dislikes? Do you have a favorite RPG system? Which is your favorite genre, do you prefer high magic, low magic, historical fiction, 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.

Cool map ... but what I want to know is where did you get that spork?!!

Welcome to the site, TomTermite! Tell us more about that long-running campaign. Looks like a low-level magic type of setting? Homebrew D&D? Pathfinder? Something else?

Welcome ... so, going to run us a campaign?

I'm not a grognard; I'm just naturally grumbly.

Welcome, tomtermite! What an awesome map. That must be one heck of a campaign. How long have you been running it?

I hope you enjoy the site and find a few games to join!
