New to the site and not as new to the scene
Hello! I just made a rpol account and it seems a little overwhelming. But I do love the role playing style games and im in a few DnDe5 games from real life to roll20. I am still trying to get the hang out of online rp and am a little nervous to join a game, since I fear Ill bring the party down. But If you guys have any pointers, or none at all, Im happy to be here and I hope to be in a game soon. Thanks!

Welcome to RpoL, one of the best PbP websites around.

With a friendly community and loads of games to participate in of all kinds of systems, thou should never be bored.

It's always best to check out the FAQs on this site, located directly in the upper right hand corner if you have specific questions about specific things on this site. The Help option also works in some favor.

On the Main Menu, it's always best to check out the Wanted - Players thread to see if any games spark your interest. From what I've noticed, there are tons of games from free-form to Sandbox to Pathfinder to D&D5e gaming systems. Iím sure youíll find something that sparks your interest.

Or perhaps you have a game idea and donít want to run it and want to look for a GM? Then youíll want to head to Wanted - GMs; perhaps youíll want to GM someone elseís idea.

Wanna join idle conversation? The Community Chat thread from the main menu is the best place to engage in interesting conversations from the community.

We as a whole are always willing to help out to newly registered users so don't be afraid to reach out.

You'll find your calling soon on this site.

Enjoy!

Always be upfront with the GM about your level of knowledge and experience. I doubt it will be a hindrance. We were all new to the hobby at some point. We understand.

What Gaffer said.  Everybody starts somewhere, so if you don't know something, just ask.

If you ever decide to run a game, the toolkit here is one of the best I've seen anywhere, but that can wait a while.  Find you a game or three, and get your feet wet.

Enjoy!
