The New Member Guide

Volume 1: The New Member Guide




Education is the best provision for a journey.

Welcome

Welcome to the new member guide!

This guide is designed to help acclimatize new members to PBP rpgcrossing.com as seamlessly as possible by introducing you to concepts in the order that you will need to discover them. It presents only the fundamentals of being a user at rpgcrossing.com but is not considered official site policy, these are only guides. Later guides will help you with more advanced concepts and take your rpgcrossing.com experience to the next level.


Tip: ''If you always read a chapter ahead of what you are doing, you'll usually be ahead of the game.''

So what is RPG Crossing?
Quote:
RPG Crossing is a 30,000+ member online community that focuses on play by post role playing games (PBP RPG) and features such systems as Dungeons and Dragons (2e, 3e, 3.5e, 4e), Pathfinder, GURPS, d20 Modern, Serenity, Star Wars, Storytelling (World of Darkness) and many more. We are an active community with many new games looking for players every day.
If this definition seems confusing, don't worry, we'll cover what all of these things mean in deeper detail within this guide.

Although many frequently asked questions (FAQs) are covered in the FAQ Area, most of these answers are more technical and don't offer much perspective to new users who don't even know what questions to ask.

This guide covers some of the most basic concepts in both abridged and lengthy versions, and is intended for users of varied backgrounds and levels of experience. Even for a PbP veteran of other sites, this guide offers useful, site-specific information.
