Afternoon all. I'm new to the site, and new to PBP but definitely interested to try it. I've been playing for close to 40 years, yes I'm old. Dozens of different systems and generas. I'll probably start out looking for a Pathfinder campaign since that is the system I've played in most recently it will be freshest in my mind. I found a few games I'm interested in but it looks like I need to wait a few weeks to prove I'm old and get access to the mature games. Until then I'm just going to lurk on the forums.

Nice to meet everyone!

Welcome to RPoL.

Actually, you need to wait two weeks for access to Adult rated games.  Mature rated games have no such restriction, and those you can enter now.

Heya and welcome to RPol, you'll find anything you want here and so many great games from freeform to about any system game you like.

A few tips for you are below:-

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 as that is how you and most GMs can talk.

On the main menu there are two forums 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 and other good stuff.

So all I can say now is

Hi! I'm old too.

I recommend checking Game Proposals, Input, and Advice from time to time. A lot of people post there to assess interest in an idea. It can get you in on the ground floor sometimes before a solicitation for players gets made.
