Hello Again!

Hey everyone!
I'm Jamie or Akaria (She/They), and trying to get back into PbP. I use to play a short bit on these forums a few years ago in college, but left due to a busy season in life and a lot of mental health issues. But a change in careers, state, and gender later I'm doing much better, have a lot more flexibility, and want to try it out again!

I don't care much for my old account, didn't have much of a history and it bears my deadname and I'm just looking to start fresh! Look forward to playing with y'all!

About me: I'm an AV Engineer/Technology Specialist for live events (Concerts, conferences, etc.) And been playing D&D and Pathfinder for over a decade now. I love games of all sorts, tabletop, board, video, mind, etc. I have degrees in History and Religion (and love anything to do with both, especially History of religions). It's definitely inspired my love for myths and world lore and inspired my own world building too!

Hi, Akaria! Welcome back to RPG Crossing! So happy for you that you have been able to claim the life you want for yourself, and honored that you are choosing to share a bit of it (including your natural +6 rolls for anything related to history or religion) here with us. Sounds like you know this already, but play-by-post can be perfect for people with jobs that come with changing schedules and hours.

If you want a quick re-entry to PbP gaming, there's an exquisite corpse game that just opened up and is being hosted by 3 site members. It would require only one post minimum (and a bit of wacky creativity!). Here's the link if you are interested.

Howdy Akaria,

Welcome back to the site! Tell us a bit more about yourself. Which is your favorite RPG system, D&D or PF? I'm a D&D 5e guy but I also love L5R and King Arthur Pendragon. Do you plan on trying out new RPGs while you are here? How about 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 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.

Pathfinder 1e has been my favorite systems, though I do love playing around in other systems, and enjoy most of them. I've gone from 1-20 (or near 20) in 3.5, 5e, and PF1e though. I definately lean towards High Fantasy/Magic, but I've played around with and like all forms. I love clerics as a class, I've played plenty of them in my years of gaming, but i don't have a particular race I favor. 42 woods.

Welcome to the new you! I'm so happy you're here, and ready to play with us!

It's *amazing* you've had characters go from 1-20. I've only experienced that once. Tell us about one of those epic characters?

I hope you find just what you're looking for here, and that your re-entry into play-by-post is smooth and fun. Happy gaming!

Impressive, I never had this experience in 25+ years of roleplay. I always get killed by the mid-level. Not good karma with die.

I still haven't had the pleasure to run into you on the forum. Have you had a chance to try some of the Open Roleplaying options? I have found quick, mildly challenging, quality interactions with the community on the variety of options offered there. Become an "Upper" in the Tug of War. Challenge your wit with a creative post in the Caption Contest. Struggle to identify the mystery topic in 100 Questions or creatively compose a poem for the poetry contest (not really a contest, more of a "casual poets society"). Whatever you choose to do, don't hesitate to say HELLO!

I'm glad to see you here, with us. Enjoy your gaming opportunities and don't be afraid to grab a hold of one of us "Reds" when you have a question, suggestion, issue, or compliment!

Goodmorning Akaria,

Welcome over here, or should I say 'welcome back' ;-). Dead names are dead names for reasons, and I understand you creating a new (very cool and unique!!!) username (absolutely love your profile image, it's powerful)
Anywayzzzzz, are you into the process of getting into a game yet? Already working on, or roleplaying a character?
