Hello

Hi Myth Weavers.

I'm new to this type of gaming, but I'm excited to give it a try. I'm willing to try any gaming system, but I prefer something fantasy based with more emphasis on combat and dungeon crawling then role playing. If anyone has any openings, or tips or leads where to start I'd appreciate any input.

Thanks

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 (D&D 3.5E, D&D 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.

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 great campaign settings, and are easier to get into. And often...the system is better for PBP. One of my favorite systems I found at random when someone posted about it on here.

There are lots of fantasy games aside from D&D and Pathfinder. Don't discount games like Dungeon World, Blades in the Dark, Savage Worlds and FATE just because you have never heard of them.

Most important thing...HAVE FUN!

Thanks for the welcome!

I've been busy applying to games and creating characters the last couple days, but I'll be sure to check out the other areas.

I gotta say, it feels a bit strange to apply for something when you really don't understand how it works, but everyone has been very helpful so far.

I did get into one game already, we're just waiting for the last person to create their character, and I've applied to two others. I think I'll hold off on applying to any more for now to make sure I don't get in over my head, just in case I get lucky and get into both of those other ones.

For the time being I'm following along on another game that started a few days ago, getting a feel for how things go during the game, still not 100% sure how everything works, but it does look like a lot of fun so far.

This is wise. It is far to easy to get into a couple games and think, OK, these are moving along a little slower than I expected, I'm going to join a couple more. And then all of the games will ramp up and you will be completely overwhelmed.

What don't you understand? Perhaps someone here can assist you.

Maybe understand was the wrong word.

I do understand how these types of games are played, I just have zero experience, so I don't have the familiarity with the rules, orders of operations, various mechanics of the game, when to roll, what to roll, etc.

Also the "unwritten" rules of the game, What should I, or should I not do as a player to not conflict with what the GM is going for, or what the other players are wanting to do, for example.

Having never played anything even similar to this type of game before just has me feeling a little out of my element, once I get some familiarity everything will be fine, I just plan on following the lead of my fellow players.
