I was prodded to sign up by a reindeer that shall remain nameless unless they decide to out themselves. Lapsed online roleplayer, used to be into Eve Online among others.

Currently following the LA By Night VtM game with interest. Not really in a position to find tabletop games irl, this sounds like a fun alternative.

Now, who can show me to the skeletons? I'm sure there are some around here somewhere...

In reply to Prospero_Shelter (msg # 1):

Welcome to RPoL!  It sounds like you enjoy Vampire:  The Masquerade?  There should be one or two games running in that milieu somewhere...  There is a Game Search link in the bar near the bottom of the Main Menu (next to where the number of running games and posts is displayed).  That might help you find something quickly.

Other places to check for games:

Wanted - Players:  GMs who have games that are actively running and seeking new players can advertise here.  This board has some special rules about bumping(covered in its Notices), so you might also want to do a little reading there.

Wanted - GMs:  this board is the converse of the one above, that is, it's for players looking for a GM to run a game they wish to play.  Again, reading the Notices for any board is a good idea.

Game Proposals, Input, and Advice:  This forum is for prospective GMs who want to gauge interest in an idea for a game before they do all the legwork to get it going.  It's also a useful place to obtain feedback on game-related issues, rule changes, etc.  I've found it useful to express interest in games that are just starting up, as that usually gets one in on the ground floor, so to speak.

Get to know folks by hanging out it Community Chat.  This is a place for innocuous getting-to-know-you chit-chat, and is a great place to get the feel of RPol.

VtM isn't my thing, really, but that's why there are so many games running here.  I'm sure you will find games that you want to play here.  Get out there and get you some!

I agree with Horus. Hang out, get the feel of the place. Watch what is going on in PLAYER WANTED and when you find a game that suits you and is looking for players ... join. And remember "If you aren't having fun, you are doing it wrong".
