New to P2P
Hey!
I'm brand new to the site. I am used to old time pen and paper and VTT, but I'm looking to try something new with play by post.

With travel, I'm 12 hours ahead of my normal group of players. It'll be several more months until I'm home, but I'm excited to take this opportunity to improve my writing and join a new community of gamers.

Welcome aboard! I'm a bit of a newcomer myself, but I can already tell you this is a pretty great site.

Welcome! It's a good site with a little of something for everyone, so you should find something that meets your needs.

I spend a lot of time browsing the "Wanted - GMs" and "Wanted - Players" threads when I'm not in a game just so I can see what the easy options for a game are, though I usually end up running my own game. It's got good tools, resources, and a friendly player base too.

Get stuck in, have some fun, and hopefully I'll see you in a game somewhere along the road!

What everyone else has said already.  Welcome, come hang out in Community Chat, find games via Wanted - Players, Wanted - GMs, or Game Proposals, Input, and Advice (by expressing interest in game proposals there), and jump off in the deep end of the pool when it suits you.

If you have questions, don't be afraid to ask.

What kind of stuff do you play?

I mostly DM 5e, but very fond of Call7e and have been trying to break into a cyberpunk/paranoia/other Sci Fi group. Appreciate the welcome!

I also love Paranoia but rarely seen it run well on here, and big fan of Serenity/Firefly and Shadow Run. Small community for those games and it's tough to keep those games alive sometimes but I certainly enjoy it when seeing them pop up. It's my curse to love games with smaller player bases, haha.

5e and Call7e are popular games so you should find quite a few options for playing those, as well as a larger player base for games you want to run.

What is P2P? I've only ever heard that to mean Peer-to-peer and pay-to-play.

I'm guessing from context you mean online gaming of some sort, but I just don't know what p2p could stand for about rpol.

In reply to DarkLightHitomi (msg # 7):

If I had to speculate, P2P might have been intended as "Post to Play"?

Person-2-Person? I've heard it used before with games, though more usually with file sharing.

No sweat - we figured it out with you.

I have a very old copy of Paranoia.  Maybe one day.  Maybe. (I can be an e-vil Computer, Citizen.)

Illogical, friend computer. You are our friend, and there is nothing that exudes goodness more than yourself, friend computer.

For the record, I find it suspect that Chrisormie knows so much about the nature of friend-computer.

Be careful, Citizen!  We don't yet know Chrisormie's clearance!  Assume nothing, trust no one, and keep your laser handy!

Sounds like someone hasn't had their medicine today! Don't you worry, friend, we'll have you back to your happy, conforming self lickity-split! Somebody start thawing a fresh clone of Mr. Suspicious here...
