Howdy y'all! 8D

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Viscount Rhi-Rhi on Mon Aug 15, 2016 11:12 pm

Sooo, hi!

My name's Rhiannon [they/them pronouns, please!), and I'm 32 and have been RPing since 1996-ish. I started out on magical wolf/unicorn/dragon/horse RPGs on the long dead InsideTheWeb message boards. (Well, technically I started out playing in a My Little Pony chatroom based around the original 80s ponies, lolol.) Those were some silly days, but good times!

I opened my own medieval high fantasy game back in 2000, and have been running it ever since! Then I opened a sci-fi fantasy one, and have been running that since 2007. I dabble in fandom RP here and there, too (Avatar: The Last Airbender and Homestuck, mainly!) and write fiction even when I'm not RPing. I've always loved to write, and I also love to draw and paint and play copious amounts of video games.

What else, what else?

I also like doing tabletop, though I haven't done enough of it! I've played DnD and Aberrant, and loved both! Aaaaand...I'm terrible at intros. But who's great at them, eh? |:

Welp, nice to meetcha all! 8D I can't believe I only just found this place. It looks pretty danged spiffy.

Hi there Rhiannon, welcome to Gateway!

I'm Vit, one of the Scholar Team, you can point us out by our fancy blue names. We're here to help if you've got any questions or need any help settling in. I'm sure I won't be the only one of the blues who pops up, but feel free to hit me up if you get stuck.

(Or feel like talking tabletop at some point. I've played Dungeon World, Mouseguard, Torchbearer and a tiny bit of 5e, hoping to start a Pathfinder game soon-ish.)

Fifteen years is very impressive for an RP site, I salute you!
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me Vit.

Oooh, Mouseguard! That's one that has always looked fun to me, as I've read some of the graphic novels and liked them.

Nice to meetcha! 8D

And a Moderator too!

Heyo Rhi and welcome to RPG! Like Vit said, if you need help with anything, please let one of the staff know, they're all wonderful people, I promise.

And on the topic of tabletops, I'd really like to try it out, but I could never find the people or scene, I suppose, that plays it. Also, I've heard of Mouseguard, and it sounded like adorable fun.

And, well. Since you're new, I think I'll drop off a list of links to help you get started. So buckle in!

Rules - I fully believe that you won't have any issues, but still be sure to check out the site rules. There aren't many, but still.
Role Play Academy - If you feel like you need to ask for advice or anything on your writing, the Academy is a good place to go. Our Scholars are all wonderful people, I promise.
Interest Checks - If you have an idea and want to get the word out, or just generally gauge interest, or if you want to take a gander at the ideas other posted, this is the place to do it.
Roleplayers Wanted - If you do manage to get an RP up off the ground, but need more writers, this is where you'll go to drum up recruit, or on the flipside, where you'll go if you're looking for an RP to jump.

You'll also notice that we have a Private Messaging system, but in order to gain access to that feature (it helps out combating the bots) you need 10 posts. To help you get there, I'd suggest checking out our Forum Games, Discussion and Debate, and our Creative Realm.

So yeah, I hope those will help, somehow. Anyway, it's nice to meet you!

Happy Roleplaying!
