Howdy, I'm a newcomer

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby KGrey813 on Fri Nov 20, 2020 2:10 pm

Heyyo everyone, my name is Kendal, and I'm a newcomer to digital roleplaying games. I love playing DnD with my family members, and I grew up with DnD 3rd edition. Recently I wanted to get back into roleplaying, but since my usual parties are either busy or quarantined, I decided to try out this enline stuff. I'm used to the fantasy roleplaying primarily, but I love sci-fi and horror outside of roleplay, so I'm up for trying any new roleplay game.

Tips: 0.25 INK Postby Remæus on Fri Nov 20, 2020 5:15 pm

Heya, Kendal! So glad that you've decided to join us on RPG! I think you'll find the "freeform" style pretty easy to understand, especially coming from a tabletop background. There's all kinds of hybrid systems too, mostly using the /roll command here in our IC.

Feel free to poke around the site, take a look at the links Absenthia (one of our Ambassadors) shared above, and let us know if you have any questions!
