A Lost Soul in The Cyberspace.
Hail, fine folk of RPOL! My searches for the finest forums rife with most exciting adventures had carried me within your fine domain. I am trusting that, with like-minded people, I may make my mark there with my heroic (or villainous) exploits.

I had roleplayed for quite some time now, having gotten the idea from playing certain RPGs on my computer, most notably ones from Neverwinter Nights series. These had also inspired me to research the D&D rules thoroughly, while I dreamed of playing a tabletop session one day.

My dreams came true on 14th of January this year, where I found a group to play 5e with, and I am still finding myself playing with them. Sadly the sessions only last for so long before we have to pack our things and get back to our lives and stuff, so I found myself looking for someplace else I could do so. All while improving my skills of roleplaying and writing, in addition to my command of English language. Not my first language, you see.

All in all, I am glad to have made myself a part of RPOL, and looking forward to doing exciting stuff with you lot!

Hi, welcome to RPOL :). First thing I will say is that if you hadn't said so, I wouldn't have guessed that English wasn't your first language. I'm sure you'll find at least one game you can fit into - there are plenty to choose from, after all. The various editions of DnD (including Pathfinder) are among the most popular systems on here but there's an RPing system for pretty much every genre you can think of.

You can check out the "Players Wanted" section if you want to find a game to join, or the "GMs Wanted" section if you're looking to run something and want to see what people are looking to play. If you want to GM you can also post in the "Players Wanted" section announcing your intentions, or in the "Game Proposals" section if you want to check out interest before actually trying to set something up.

There is an FAQ section and a Help feature, easily accessible in the top right corner of the screen, if you have any general issues with any feature of the site. And you can ask in here too, of course - happy gaming :D.

Welcome!  Lots to see and do here, and Ameena has given some good recommendations for how to proceed.

Hang out in Community Chat for a while, get to know folks, and get to know how the place works.

When you're ready, dive in and get you some!  Almost any game you might want to play by post either is or can be supported here (within the terms of use, naturally).

If you decide to run some games as GM, yeah, you'll find what you need here to organize and manage your games handily.
