Hello everyone

Hello everyone,

I am new to play-by-post (I did run a Lasers & Feelings game on Discord with a relative some years ago, but other than that I would say that I have practically no play-by-post experience).

Systems that I have some experience in: Animon Story; Dungeons & Dragons 5e; Lasers & Feelings.

I look forward to playing on the site

Howdy CactusCubed,

I love to ask when I see names like yours, is there any meaning behind it? And CactusCubed...seems like a rather prickly situation. Sorry, dad humor alert there!

Tell us a bit more about yourself. Which RPG system do you prefer? We have a whole host of different RPG systems for you to try out. 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.

Welcome to site cactuscubed. By an amazing coincidence, Animon story is just being discussed on the advertisement board!

Other than that, enjoy your stay here!

Hi Ildrahil,

My name is a reference to the cactus block in Minecraft, it comes from when I needed to pick a screen name for that game.

I haven't spent a ton of time in RPGs so I wouldn't say that I have settled on a favorite system, but I have spent the most time with DnD 5e. My favorite class is the paladin, largely because I like playing a class that has access to spells but can still fall back on melee weapons during combat. Genre-wise, I lean towards fantasy and sci-fi.

Thanks for the welcome, I'm happy to be here.

Hi Dworin,

Yeah, that Animon Story post did catch my attention.

Anyway, thanks, I'm glad to be here.

welcome!

Good thing that all you need to play here is access and imagination. Experience will come if you have those two, so... I'd say you are set! Love having new minds and new ideas, hope you enjoy it here. happy gaming!

Hi, Cactus3! Welcome to the site! I see you have signed up for a New Player Solo Game! Hope you are able to get started soon and have a great time at it! Will you be taking a paladin out for a spin?

Hi bananabadger, I actually opted for a fighter character this time. A fighter character that belongs to an order of knights that protect the realm from danger... (so mechanically playing a fighter, but she ended up being a paladin-type character).
