Any good games for a noob?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby gloriousbattle on Mon May 02, 2011 5:26 pm

I'd like to play smoething online, rather than PBEM, but I am having a real problem figuring out this site.

So, any GM with the patience of a Job like to take me on as a player? Be prepared for a LOT of questions.

Basically, PBP (play by post) is a lot like playing by e-mail. Instead of a series of replies, a forum allows for more than two people to participate and, more importantly, a full history of everything that's happened in the game to its current state.

The basic principles are the same: You make a character, find a group, and post in the threads as your character in much the same way you posted this topic.

You might want to try the Role Play Academy for more detailed help courtesy of our amazing Mentors. This shit is their job.
