Greetings

Greetings!

I am VampiricLongbow. I am a long time veteran of the PbP format, having played & DMed on various sites over the last twelve years. I have grown a bit frustrated with how the PbP space has been balkanized & hidden by the proliferation of private Discord-based games, which has resulted in the mass depopulation of many of the small/niche PbP sites that I once loved. Of those smaller sites, most have become dominated by the 5E-only/preferred crowd. Don't get me wrong, I love 5E but we are living through a new golden age for non-D&D games. Games that I *really* want to GM. Games like Blade Runner, Wrath & Glory, Dune, Worlds Without Number, WEG Star Wars, Dark Heresy 2E, Power Rangers RPG, Star Wars Saga Edition, Savage Worlds, Cities Without Number, Transformers RPG, ACKS II, Stars Without Number, Age of Sigmar - Soulbound, FFG's Star Wars games, Star Trek Adventures, Infinity RPG, etc. Amazing games that all deserve love and affection. After struggling to get some groups together for these games on other sites, I was told to come to RPG Crossing as the player base is very large and more enthusiastic about playing niche games.

I am eager to start meeting cool new people and start rolling dice with all of you

Hi VampiricLongbow --

You sound awesome! So glad to meet you! I can't wait to see some of those ideas pop on in the GMs Seeking forum.

Have fun exploring the site and meeting the inmates!

Hi VampiricLongbow and welcome.

I am saddened that your epic list of games you want to play does not include Cyberpunk RED. Nevermind, there is plenty there to get your fangs into!

Hi, VampiricLongbow! How awesome to have a new member with such a gaming--a PbP gaming!--resume walk through the door! This site does exist in the world, so 5e is probably our go-to lingua franca, but there are also tons of other games going on, and a receptive crowd for new ones. Hope to play alongside you in one of those new ones in the future!

A lot of Sine Nomine love in that list. Welcome! I see you also like the FFG Star Wars - did you ever get into the FFG Legend of the Five Rings? The dice system is mostly similar.

Howdy VampiricLongbow,

I love the username. I'm sure the vampires on the site are trembling in fear. That was a great intro, we definitely have an idea of who you are. 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.

I love Sine Nomine games! Had many a fun adventure in Stars! I have DMed the 3.5 version of L5R and played in the 4th edition version of the game. I own the FFG/Edge Studios version but I have never been able to get anyone to play it (proprietary dice are, sadly, a big turn off to a large chunk of potential players). It looks fun as heck though! #Unicorn4Life

Thank you for the warm greeting! 5E's grasp is, indeed, both large and deep, it is inescapable!

I am happy to hear there are many who want to try other games. Really looking forward to it!
