Hi from the UK

Hi from the UK

Hi everyone,

Tempted back to D&D after many, many years away from the game (and RPGs in general).

As an ageing gamer I'm finding the site a little tricky to navigate - much more so than the latest edition of the rules! - but I think I'm getting there. I'd like to eventually DM an AL game here but baby steps and all that...

Still have a few threads/posts to read, and currently working through the AL Character Creation process. Can't wait to actually start gaming...


welcome aboard @Tannhauser!

If you are new to PBP, you may want to want to review the information found in the New to Play-by-Post thread, even though you aren't New to PBP. It gives good info about how WE do PBP. Also check out the Myth-Weavers Site Rules. PBP runs a little different than tabletop; you don't all sit down at the same time and play for hours, you log in when you can and progress the game. Because of this unique mechanism, games that would take 5 hours around a table, can take months in PBP.

Make sure to poke around the site a the other places, besides the Games & Ads. There is a lot of good information, and a lot of good conversations going on. Get involved in conversations about game systems you know, ask about game systems you don't know about. Check out our Discord server...which is also a great place to meet up with people and see other games being posted.

So, the way things work here is players don't just get invited to games. GMs will put up an ad for a game, and players will apply for the game. Some game systems will only get a handful of applicants while other, more popular ones (3.5E, 5E, Pathfinder...), will get up towards 20 applicants wanting to play in the game. So, head on over to the Games & Ads forum and see what is advertising. If nothing catches your interest right away, hang out and check out the other forums, or get on Discord and meet people. For every game system out there, there are people here interested in playing. GMing a game is a SURE way to get to play!

Also, if you see a game for a system you aren't familiar with, but the game sounds interesting, don't discount it. Often, they have better campaign settings than Pathfinder or D&D, and are easier to get into. And often...the system is better. One of my favorite systems I found at random when someone posted about it on here.

Please feel free to ask about anything you are unsure about. We're happy to help.

Most important thing...HAVE FUN!

Welcome to MW @Tannhauser!

Honestly, just about any site will have a learning curve, and this one can seem a bit more intimidating because they've really poured a lot of time into their gaming tool set. The dice roller/anti-cheat system is awesome, under "Site Tools", there are all kinds of goodies, and the list goes on.

So yeah, it'll take some time of messing around on here to get a feel, but it's definitely worth it especially if you're serious about DMing.

Good luck!

Thanks people. It does seem to be a very welcoming Forum, unlike some I browsed. I've taken a bit of time to read the recommended threads as it seems a0 only right and courteous, and b) I have a lot to learn. Still, life has taught me you get out what you put in!
