Call of Cthulhu Role-playing Game Start Guide

To start participating in Play by Post Call of Cthulhu in the Member Wars Board you need to follow the below steps:

1. Join the Community

Membership is free! Ensure you read the Registration rules as our Community is diligently moderated to cater for a more cultured participant. Potential Players who take our Constructive Posting Policy lightly find their accounts terminated. Register Now.

2. Validate your Email

There is a link in your Registration Email (The one you Registered with) that must be clicked. If you did not get the Email it may have gone to your Spam / Junk folder. Optional: Please check there and use this tip to make sure our Emails go to your Inbox next time: Avoid Legit Emails As Spam.

3. Post your Introduction

A couple of lines about yourself (No confidential or contact info please) and your purpose for joining. Post Your Introduction. Once posted it needs to approved first before being made public. Sorry for this extra step but it protects the Community from spammers and malicious advertizes.

4. Decide which Game Master's Game you will join

Each Game Master has their own rules and requirements for Players. See Mystery & Horror Role-playing Game Board and look for the Threads that talk about "Character Creation" Or "Create Character". If the Thread is Closed / Locked it means that Game Master is not accepting any more Characters. If it is open then use the "Create Role-playing Game Character" Button at the top of the page. You will then be able to establish your Character and the necessary fields to hold player information. Let the GM know about your Character in the same Thread.

Rather off topic, but...
Optional For a comparison of other Medieval Based Role-playing Games see: Medieval Options
More Dungeons & Dragons Based Role-playing Game offerings see: Dungeons & Dragons Start Guide


5. Don't become lost or start talking to yourself

If you do not see an available Role-playing Game then you have many other options as Call of Cthulhu is NOT the only Role-playing Game we run. You can also start your own! See: How To Find The Role-playing Game That Fits Me?

6. Create your Call of Cthulhu Character

You will need to roll dice using the Call of Cthulhu rule book most of which can be downloaded for free via Chaosium Free Downloads Center OR you can also use the inhouse Generator when you use the Create Your Character button. Game Masters usually do help Players create their Characters, please follow their instructions.

7. Post your Character for Approval

Look for the "Characters" Thread of the Game Master you selected and place your character there. The Game Master will notify you if your character is approved and what to do next.
