Inside a room painted black by darkness, a single flame lits up, revealing a man sitting on a wooden table with multitude of used papers. Some of these have drawings of women of all sizes and shapes with big adorable eyes, while others have scribbled unintelligible text written.

The man sports a goatee beard and has also seems to have large eyes, except they aren't as exaggerated as they are in what you assume are his drawings. He gives you a candid smile, fixing his somewhat long hair away from his forehead.

Greetings! I am Gahbriel and it is a pleasure to cross paths with you.

I've only played so far a couple Vampire The Masquerade chronicles,both occidental and Kuei Jin, and I'm tempted to play Dungeons and Dragons but I don't really know where to get started.

I'm kind of a beginner when it comes to RP online, at least on forum format. I've role played on online chats many times before and it's been a glorious mess and I wish to remember the best of those days.

That being said... What do I like to roleplay? I have no bounds really, but I'm mostly interested in Fantasy and High Fantasy, if it involves some dudes gaining power to take down a bigger dude while making themselves better people, even better! Personal stories with big stackes are what draw me in the most.

With that said, I hope we get along very well. I'll be looking for stuff to do around here with you. If you are looking for someone to fill a spot don't hesitate and let me know, I might be interested. I hope we get to meet again soon.

After his speech, the man blows the candle, making the room once again pitch black. After several seconds in darkness you are about to leave when you hear something crash in the darkness, followed by foul language any mother would disapprove.

You leave the place wondering what in the world was that all about.

In reply to Gahbriel2 (msg # 1):

You have a dry sense of humor - nicely done!

Welcome to RPoL.  You've found a great place to game and make new friends.

Getting started means doing some light reading.  The Help and FAQs are good places to start.  There's a lot in there that will be useful as you figure out the place.

Hang out in Community Chat and get a feel for the place.  That's where folks go to just chit-chat and talk about stuff in general.

You'll see Notices (stickied topics) in each forum you visit.  One Notice in each place will tell you about what goes on there, and what's not permitted.

Places to connect for gaming purposes:

Wanted - Players  Here's where you find GMs who want to admit players to their existing games.

Wanted - GMs  and players ask for GMs to run a game they want to play.

Game Proposals, Input, and Advice is where folks who are thinking about creating a game can pitch their game concepts, gauge interest, and make connections prior to actually developing and fielding a game.

The search engine can also help you find games you might want to play.  It is really specialized, and provides filters for genre, game system, and others that will help narrow down the field to find games that are active, accepting players, and might be what you want to play.

There's a whole lot to do and see around here, and one of the finest toolkits for developing and running play-by-post games anywhere.

If there's something in particular you have questions about, just ask.  Lots of friendly folks hereabouts will be glad to help you find answers.
