Sup, I bet everyone says that.
Welp, this is my first RP forum. I've never played a PC in any Online or Tabletop RPGs, but I have been DM twice, one in a Call Of Cthulu and D&D: Mines Of Phandelver. Both were cut short due to mostly my PCs having short attention spans but I can't blame them for that. So I don't know what else to say but Hi.

Welcome to RPoL, Gee!

A few might say, "Sup," but that's neither here nor there.  Introducing yourself on Beginners as you have is a great start.

The next place you really should look is the FAQs and Help.  There's stuff in there... yeah, that's it.  Especially if you intend to run a game you should look into the Help for the Games and Site Policies topics.  GMs have a bit of added responsibility which is laid out in these topics.

When visiting forums please do look at the Notices stickied to the top of the stack.  Those also contain stuff in them that's worth your time.

Hang out in Community Chat for a while and get the feel of the place, then, once you've got the hang of it, join in or post a topic about something new.

You mentioned games.  Yeah, they are why we are here.  Some ways to find that game you're looking for are:

Wanted - Players:  GMs advertise their existing games here that are seeking new players.

Wanted - GMs:  Players advertise here for GMs to run a game they want to play.

Game Proposals, Input, and Advice:  Topics here are generally started by GMs for one of two purposes -- either they want to float a proposal for a game to gauge player interest before doing the work needed to develop it, or they are looking for advice/input on matters relating to games they already run.

Replying to topics in GPIA is a great way to get in on the ground floor of a new game in development, and be there from the very start.

The GM toolkit here is well designed to help GMs keep their stuff together, and to facilitate compartmentalization/privacy when needed to keep the game real.  Check it out if you get the yen to run games again.

Get out there, get involved, and get to gaming!

Hello! I'm new here as well. I've done RP with friends but never online.
