Newish to Online RPG
Hello,
I have been looking at various online RPG sites and found this one via Reddit. So far I have played a Cthulhu Confidential play by forum on BGG and enjoyed it. I am currently playing in a Mouse Guard PBF on BGG. I have dabbled in SOLO RPG's and really enjoyed Scarlet Heroes along with a few free form adventures I made up using Mythic GM Emulator. Then I discovered Numenera and fell in love. It's so vast and has such streamlined rules. I am using the Cypher Emulator to play one of the adventures solo and learn the rules. I would love to find a Numenera PBP game. I have the 2e books.

I have only played in one non online RPG game. It was a Pathfinder scenario with pregen characters. It was fun.

I am a little addicted to picking up RPGDriveThru Deals of the Day, so I have read a bunch of rule sets. So far Numenera is my favorite. Unfortunately I didn't see any new games advertised at the moment.

Welcome to RPoL!

If you're looking for a specific game, you can check out the "Wanted - Players", though if you have a specific request, you can ask for a GM in "Wanted - GMs".

There are a few active Numenera games here on RPoL, if you go to the main menu and check out the search feature near the bottom.

A good place to do that is Game Proposals, Input, and Advice, but it may be something of a wait.  While Numenera does have its fans here, I'm not sure how numerous they might be, or how soon a new game might start up.

You may have better luck in Wanted - GMs.  Read the Notices, then post requesting for someone to run a game for you.

If all else fails, run a game yourself!  Lots of folks will be around to help you get started.

Oh, and Welcome to RPoL!

Thanks! I am too new to all this to even think about running a game yet.

No sweat.  Just get comfortable, play some, and when the bug hits ya, start a game and play around with the GM menu.  You'll see a fairly comprehensive toolkit for organizing and running a game here.

If you have questions, just ask.  Folks here will be glad to help you out.
