I'm new

Hi! I'm new and I'm looking for a game to start out playing, I've played Dungeons and Dragons 5e for about 2 years now, but I'm new to online D&D.

Hello @Kriv Scaleborn!

So, you want to get into PBP? There are some things you should know. 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. It is also GREAT for creative writing, as you can take some time to describe your activities. The downside of this is games take A LONG time, and move slowly. 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.

If it is your thing, we also have a 5E Adventurer's League here. I have heard that the games are first come first play.

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.

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

Welcome to the weave, hope you enjoy your time here.



Well, one of the best places to get your feet wet in PbP D&D 5e is in the Myth-Weavers Adventurer's League!

Then, as you like, you can branch out into campaigns that are advertised on the forums.
