A new to everything guy

   
A new to everything guy

Hello there.
I'm just a man that miss a good fun rpg, without the time for that (thanks to my 1yo little boy).

To make things a little harder, I'm new to every non-hommebrew system, new to pbp and forums in general...
And I mentioned that I'm not a native English speaker (or reader)? And I'm a little rusted too.

So if someone have patience to explain a thing or two, I'm here to try.

Welcome to the weave! People here are mostly friendly and helpful so I'm sure you'll get all the help you need when you find a game that appeals to you!

My best advice is, don't worry. Everyone was new to it at some point!

I'm not a native speaker, either. You can check my post count if you need reassurance.

Welcome @Dead_Zer0!

Like others have said, everyone has got to start somewhere. PBP is different from Tabletop in several ways. The biggest way is that the players and GM don't all sit down at the same time for a set amount of time to play. Players log in when they have time to post. It works well for those insanely busy people, or people who can't dedicate 4-5 hours in one stretch to play. The downside of this is games take A LONG time, and move slowly.

You mention you are not familiar with non-homebrew games. How about you tell us about the games you have played and we can suggest some things to try.

You may want to review the New to Play by Post section, to see how we do PbP. You may also want to review out Site Rules.

How things work here, is GMs will post an advertisement fot the game they want to run in the Games and Ads section. Interested players will then apply. There are usually some guidelines for creating your character, what sourcebooks you can use, any house rules you should be aware of. Pay attention to them. Popular games like D&D 3.5 and 5E, and Pathfinder can get a lot of applicants, and one way GMs will weed through applications is to look for missing information, or incomplete characters. So read the character creation guidelines carefully. Also, check what characters others are applying with. If everyone is making fighting and sneaking type characters, you may be better off playing a spellcaster.

Some information on the site, check out this information on bbCode Help, and this one on Die Roller Help. Another great way to meet people and possibly get game is on our MW Official Discord.

You may want to start off as a player to start with, just to get an understanding of how things work here. It is very easy to get into several games, and then have all of them accelerate their post rates to a point you cannot keep up. It is best to start slow.

Don't discount games you have not heard of. My favorite game systems have arisen from here from someone mentioning a game I had no knowledge of, me going to google it, and shortly after downloading it.

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. Most of all, HAVE FUN!
