Greetings Everyone!

Greetings Everyone!

Hi, I'm Penultimatum, or Pen for short.

I'm still fairly new to pen-and-paper games with only a little over a year of experience as a GM (and even less as a player). I've got plenty of experience with text-based roleplaying in general, having been both playing and running several over the years, from over email to forums and even in MMOs.

I tried D&D (3rd edition I believe) back in highschool after being pulled into it by a couple of classmates, but it was never really my thing. About three years ago a good friend of mine invited me to join their Pathfinder group, which I enjoyed but once again, I had a hard time keeping up. I also tried picking D&D up again with newbie groups (as a player), 5th edition this time, but still couldn't get into it.

So I ended up looking to other systems and eventually settled on the AGE system (Dragon AGE specifically because I shared an interest in the games and so did the friends I played with). I ended up agreeing to be the GM and got to run it for about a year before work and life got in the way. I also picked up the FFRPG (3rd edition from Returner Games to be exact) during this time which I GM'ed online for a couple of people I met through an MMO. Most recently I got my three cousins into pen-and-paper with "The Magical World of Yeld" and that's pretty much all I'm still running. I have some odd shifts at work which can make it hard to plan session times with groups and that's pretty much how I came upon play-by-post. I've had a bit of time to get into a few more systems as well that I hope I get to use at some point.

So yeah, I'm hoping to get to run a game or two here since my passion still lies with being a GM. Currently I have a Final Fantasy setting in the making that I would love to run as well as perhaps getting started on something from Ryuutama, which I recently got into.

Thanks for reading my introductionary ramble, peeps!

Welcome to Myth-Weavers, @Penultimatum !

Obviously, you have a bit of experience with text-based RP'ing, which is good. I got my feet wet ages ago using Gaia Online. If you've done any roleplaying on forums, then you're aware of the asynchronous nature of Play-by-Post: aka we post at whatever times we can. It's excellent for those with erratic schedules.

If you haven't already, your first step is to give our Games and Ads section a look over. You'll find all sorts of games recruiting there. Most games have something of a process when it comes to accepting players, so you'll want to check out their particular details. I do recommend at least checking out a few games before running one yourself, so you can see how we roll here.

People run and play a wide variety of systems, although D&D is still quite popular around here. I don't have to tell you to look outside of the d20 guys, though - you've already done that on your own!

Also, I recommend getting chatty through out the forums or even dropping by our Discord Channel. Just watch out for those welcoming harpoons - they're harmless... mostly

If you have any questions, let us know!

Welcome @Penultimatum! Yamazaki got quite a bit covered. I can honestly say I have never heard of the 3 games you cited, which considering I have probably played over 40 different systems... But that said, I am SURE there are people who know them and would love to play them.

Again, welcome aboard! Now get out there and have some fun.

I look forward to see your advertisements for games! Hopefully RL will allow me to play ....
