Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Odin on Mon Mar 05, 2007 11:30 am

Hi! I’m not new to the Online Role Playing World (Goodness, I’ve run and participated in so many forums that I can’t even remember them at the moment). However, I am rather new to GWing. In fact, if it wasn’t for a Role Playing Timeline, and my natural curiosity driving my hand, I would have never been introduced to this wondrous place!

So, I’ve gone from forums that don’t support powers at all, to ones where divine and super-powered beings were canon. I want to introduce my character but, by the same token, I don’t want to make a Mary Sue. I’m used to fighting rather over-powered characters and, honestly, I don’t expect to find that here.

Sadly, I’m a victim of conditioning, and don’t know how to fix my character up. I was wondering that, if I were to put my character sheet up, if anyone that has problems with it (such as the level of his power or the scope of his ability), then by all means, PM me and we can figure something out!

Thank you for taking the time to read this, much appreciated.

Absolutely! Welcome to RPGateway!

Speaking of that timeline, I think it's a bit outdated, and I should probably go by and update it a bit. ;)

I don't suppose that anyone has checked out my character sheet?

I'd like a critique of it; is it too powerful, or does it work for this forum?

Hi Odin,

Welcome to the site. I am sure you will find something that you can get involved in. I have had a look at your character but I play different games to you so can offer very little advice, all right no advice if you insist. Hopefully one of the others will be able to look over it and give you pointers.

Welcome, Odin.

Fortunately, I spent some time at a forum that is to the Creed what Satanism is to the Ten Commandments... so I may just be able to help you in the scaling down department. Just as soon as I have enough time to read through it, I will. In the mean time, enjoy your stay.

Thank you all very much, I feel all welcome and warm and fuzzy ^_^

Does anyone know where I can get some Rp? I want to join an existent one yet don't want to interrupt an ongoing storyline.

Well, with a tiny little bit of character-profile-tempering (To make sense within the world setting), you could join us in Ghalerion over in the fantasy forums (Actually just re-opened it literally last night after months of hiatus, so this would be prime-time to join). I think you'd fit in right well there. It's got a nice history and setup (A bit extensive at times, but that's just for the ones that are interested in knowing all about it) and is just itching to get some new members in there.

Also, welcome to the forums. ^^

Try asking the Milk Mystic. How far up? I have no idea what to say. What would your friends say if you asked them?

Try setting the sig and avatar again. We were having problems with those until just a day or two ago (My avatar just finally started working), so they're more likely to work now. If they don't after that, shoot me a PM and I'll try and get it worked out.

As far as credits go, for now they really do nothing, but in the future they're going to have a lot of different uses, at least from what Eric has been tellin' us. Some of which just might include cool free RPGateway stuff. >_>

Once more? OK I will try it. Oh. When was this? Let's wait and see what they do. Some may of which might include cool free RPGateway stuff, but not all.

The avatar works now, thank you.

Is there any reason that my signature image tag won't work?
