X Warcraft Role Player. Am I in the right place?
My sole Role Playing experience was 12 years on World of Warcraft.
Ravenholdt, Wyrmrest Accord, and even Moonguard. I was a Hardcore role player.
Quit WOW when BFA launched, even thought I bought it in advance for the new mounts and characters. The RP community just wasn't there anymore. No RP, no real reason to pay the $15 bucks a month anymore.

I browsed the forums, like any good noob. I can not find what I am looking for exactly.
Q & A section, Maybe?

Some WOW guilds that I was a member of had forum based RP threads, which were totally awesome!
We could do things in the forums we could not do in the game.

Hoping to find that here. Not warcraft lore RP per-say, but forum based midevil-ish RP.

I am having serious RP withdraws right now.

Thanks for listening,

You are in the right place to introduce yourself.  Welcome to RPoL.  I see below you have some experience with play-by-post already, so the adjustment to RPoL won't be too much of a stretch for you.

If it's fantasy-based games you want, they are quite popular here, as are anime' and science-fiction/space opera. There are lots of games that fall outside those categories, though.  Games exist here for almost any taste.

Well, links to Help and FAQs are in the upper right corner of any RPoL screen.  You might start there. There's a definite etiquette and culture here.  I'm a garden-variety knucklehead, so most of what I know I learned the hard way.  If I can save you a headache or two, just ask.

You never know... there may be some warcraft-based stuff here.  I've seen some really tricked out Rogue Trader lately (part of the WarHammer 40K universe).  There is a game search engine on the main page about mid-way down (depending on your browser and screen size).

Jonesing for a game?  Yeah, you're in the right place, all right.  Some places you might want to visit:

Wanted - Players is an advertising board where GMs advertise for players who might want to play in their existing games.

Wanted - GMs is for players to advertise for a Game Master to run a game the player(s) want to play.

Game Proposals, Input, and Advice is for folks who want to get advice about game-related matters, and for GMs to put up proposals for games they are thinking about running (to gauge interest before doing all the work that goes into a good game).

Community Chat is a more general forum -- a good place to hang out and talk about whatever comes to mind (but it is a Public forum - no naughty bits, please).
 Read a little there, and maybe post a topic or two yourself.  You'll get to know folks better that way.

Dig in, man, and get you some!

Thanks for the reply horus and the links! I will definitely jump on those tomorrow if I can talk myself out of going to the casino.

Casino?  Yeah, we have those around my place, too.  Bonne chance, mon ami!
