Hello everyone!

Obligatory joining the community post!

I'm starved for face-to-face RP, due my two year old bundle of joy taking up most of my time.  I'm going to see if I can get back into PBP again, thanks to the joy of cell phones (Android).

If anyone has any tips for enhancing the use of this site on an Android device, I'd very much appreciate hearing them.

Actually, I believe there is currently a discussion of some sort on that very subject.  I'm not the programming type but, if I understand correctly, they're currently asking if anyone could work on enhancing the abilities of this site on a phone.

I don't believe there's any official discussion on that topic.  There is, however, a group of users working on an unofficial app.

Currently jase is working on an official upgrade which would change the way the site looks/works, both on mobile devices, and on desktop computers.

Welcome!  Lots to do here, lots to see, and lots to learn (especially if you want to run a game.)

Dive the Help, and the FAQs to get up to speed, especially on adult and mature games, and terms of service type stuff.

Be sure also to read the rules posted in each board at or near the top.

Hang out in Community Chat to get to know the place.  There are other neat boards for discussing Game Systems, and for Game Proposals, Input, and Advice and Heaven-Game Resources.  Hit Wanted-GMs to advertise for a GM to run a game to your liking.  (Hey, it could happen - you just never know.)

The game boards here have more features to help a GM be successful than you can shake a magic wand at.

Enjoy!

Yeah, I'm actually really impressed with the resources that are available.  I was really just expecting a forum, but between the available character sheets, references for sci-fi, and the built-in wiki...  Well, hot damn!

I'm still re-reading the FAQ periodically to make sure I'm not breaking any site rules or etiquette.  I'm sure I'll miss something.

Tangent: Does RPol have affiliate links with DriveThruRPG?

I ask because most of the games I've bought in the last few years have been in PDF format, and if I'm linking to rule sets for my game, I figure they might as well be affiliate links so that RPol.net gets a cut.

Affiliate Links?  I can't say for certain (not a site admin or moderator), but I wouldn't believe so...  I don't recall seeing any.  Knowing what rules I do, I wouldn't think so.

Hmmm.  Is it something Jase would do?  I don't know what's involved, but I'm seeing them pop up on OSR blogs allover the place.
