Hello all! I am new to this website and to roleplaying in general. I've always liked to draw and make characters so I've decided to give this a try. :) I'm willing to learn your game, and participate in any genre, as long as you are willing to teach me! I have 50+ characters I can choose from, or I can make one suited to your story. I can also provide art of my characters as well as draw yours if you want that for your story. Please contact me if you are interested. :)
I am sixteen and my favorite stories are dark, horror, fantasy, and slice-of-life.

Welcome to RPol!  You will find all roleplay types to your heart's desires!  Whether itís system or creative freeform we got it.

There are over 3,000 games on this site.  You just need to know if you want system roleplay or freeform.  Here are some tips to help you.

A couple of tips for you are:

Make sure you turn on your rmail by going to the link at the top that is User preferences, there you will find some settings to play around with including the rmail one. That is how you and most GMs and other players can talk.

On the main menu there are two forums where you can find what you want to play in
Wanted: players
Wanted: GMs

At the bottom of the main menu you will also find search link to find games

So all I can say now is

HAPPY GAMING!!
LS

In reply to ladysharlyne (msg # 2):

Thank you for the tips! I have tried browsing, and a lot of the games seem very intimidating to me who doesn't know much about the lingo. I have enabled the rMail, so I think I will try to message some GMs whose games sound interesting to me regardless. Wish me luck! :D

I do wish you luck and hope you find what you are looking for. Remember that each and everyone of us was a newbie at one time. So jump right in there and many games are willing to help a newbie out.  Again good luck to you xx

Oh and you can post what type of games you are looking for in Wanted:  GMs and GMs will contact you. :)

Lady S mentions system and freeform games, so I thought I'd drop a few words about those terms.

Freeform games are exercises in creative writing where the GM (Gamemaster/mistress) lays out the situation/world/plot in greater or lesser detail and the players write about their characters' actions and thoughts and feelings. Conflict is described narratively with the GM making having final discretion (usually) on the outcome. Rules are few or none, mechanics are limited, and die rolls rarely employed.

System games have more structure and are generally meant to use a particular published rule set and often a pre-established "world/universe" in which the story plays out. Some rules systems are more complicated than others, but most involve using die rolls to determine character success or failure. Dungeons and Dragons is probably the best known of these systems in several different and widely varying editions, some running to dozens of supplementary books, but there are many, many other systems.
