Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Dark Star on Thu May 27, 2010 5:21 am

Why hello there, I'm rather new to this site... Well not new but relatively new. It's been age's sense I last came here, and I have to say it changed a good bit sense then. The first time I came to this site I didn't get a to friendly of a welcome by everyone, but hell I was horrible back then, and learned from my mistakes, and bettered myself.

However it would be appreciated if someone could tell me, or link me to how the site works...Like how the chat functions and such. I utterly have no idea what to do, and found myself lost on the home page for about...twenty minutes until I notice the tabs above... Well anyway, tips, and such would be appreciated, I don't want to end up jumping into things without knowing what I'm in for first, heaven knows what happened last time I did so... Well any help would be appreciated ^^

Welcome to our happy little – I should say large – community/family of RPG (sorry for the acronyms, Role-Play Gateway) Dark Star! I’m happy to see another person has found their way to us and is willing to jump into the enjoyable tales and stories we have to offer. My name is Maestro and besides being a member of staff, I have the important lovable job of being a Mentor! So when it comes to any questions involved in role-play, I or any of our other staff members are defiantly the ones to ask – but we promise, our members are just as friendly and knowledgeable.

I have been role-playing for only two years and I can personally vouch for this site when it comes to having the chance to excel beyond your wildest imagination; all you need is a little patience and motivation. When I first joined I was nothing more than a novice myself; but since my stay here, I’ve become a well-respected member and active role-player – and now the words under my hand are dynamite! At least I hope they are (nothing better than gloating)! But I can assure you that as long as you believe, you will quickly join the ranks of the best role-players we have to offer. The road ahead may be difficult, but worth it, and now it’s your turn. At Role-Play Gateway we promise our members will try their best to make the path ahead of you an easily traveled one.

Keep in mind you don’t have to only rely on yourself because our members are willing to help you along the way so please don’t be discouraged to ask questions. If there is anything on your mind please feel free to check out the Role-Play Gateway Chat to ask your questions or even the Role-Play Academy where our Mentors are always willing to lend a hand. If you want to approach less interactive means, The Help Forum or The Beginner's guide to RPG Chat is there to assist. To further gain an advantage, make sure to take a look at our RPG Rules. There are only five so don't be stressed out about thinking were strict. As long as you respect us, we will return the favor.

I hope I am of some help and that you enjoy your stay here. ^.^
