In reply to WulfFyre (msg # 1):

Welcome!

Either approach has value, but you should consider just hanging out in Community Chat for a while and reading the traffic while you bone up on the FAQs and the Help, especially if you intend to GM.

Get to know your way around a bit.  That'll make it easier for you when you do join or start a game.

Echoing the words of horus, do check out the FAQs, as they are a wonderful resource to learn syntax and general site guidelines. Once you feel comfortable enough, go ahead and join a game or two, or perhaps start one of your own ;)

Ooh...  something else you will find useful in managing character sheets and complex posts:  become familiar with the basic HTML tag set in use here.  It's a little different from most forum setups that use BBCode - a bit more powerful, if I may say so.

Whether you GM or play, knowing how that stuff works will enhance your user experience here.

The good news is that you can ease into it.  Like I said, nose around, read up in the Help, and get a feel for the place.

Later On,
D

I'm with Horus on this one - take a look around as I've been doing to figure out how stuff works and how you can make it work for you, either as player or GM.  Find and join a couple of games so you can see things in action and get started. If you want to be a Game Master later, drive in and test the waters.

Good luck and have fun.

Cheers!
