How To Find The Role-playing Game That Fits Me?
I have decided to start This Thread as another help resource just for you as Reader
Not Sure What To Do? Ask A Question!
First, if you ever have a question, do ask in your Introduction Thread (The first Post you made when you joined) or the Member Wars Support Thread. Unlike, other places we do not flame Members because they ask a question. Asking questions is actually an intelligent thing to do!
Please note we do have an enforced RPG Etiquette which basically encourages all Players to keep Role-playing Games on Role-Playing by not bringing up any personal interests, schedules or anything not related to the game itself. If you must talk about when you can play, that you will be on vacation, your Birthday, you are getting a divorce or your cat then please always use your Introduction as mentioned above.
Different Kinds of Role-playing Games
Second, you need to decide what kind of Role-playing Game you want to play. We have different types:
1. Solo Role-playing Games: Where you can play at anytime without the need of waiting for a Dungeon Master or other Players. Start here: Ruler Of Kings II
2. Solo Blog: You want to be the author of your own story, like a Blog, where only you write and others read and enjoy your imagination. To do this simply visit any of the Role-playing Game Boards and click the button that says, "New Topic". Make sure in your first Post to include that only you will be writing and the Administrator will make it a special Thread where you can choose an Avatar and lock it off to others. See an example: A Young Woman's Tale.
3. Play by Post: You use the Threads like a tabletop in order to carry out games with other Players. Check below to see which Dungeon Masters are currently accepting new Players.
Available Play by Post Role-playing Games
At the moment, here are Threads for Character Creation:
* Ruler of Kings II Role-Playing Game (Text MMORPG)

4. Continue The Story or Open Role-playing Game:
This is a Collaborative writing effort. Basically, one person starts off a story that everyone else can add to. The story can go in any direction once the theme and Protagonist stays the same. The nice thing about these is you can contribute at anytime in your own style without any formalities. The current ones are:
A. A Drama Role-playing Game: Continue the Story…
B. A Medieval Continue The Story Role-playing Game
C. A Cozyville Elderly Home Continue the Story Role-playing Game
D. A Science Fiction Continue The Story Role-playing Game
E. A Super Hero Continue The Story Role-playing Game
F. A Horror Continue The Story Role-playing Game
G. A Matrix Continue The Story Role-playing Game
H. Ultimate Eternal Medieval Battle: Continue The StoryTypical 'Newbie' QuestionsQ. How do I know where to Play a Dungeons & Dragons Game?
A. If you are talking about Member Wars (Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, etc.) then you look on the main Board Index of Member Wars
for ANY open thread that has within its title "Create Characters". * How do I change my Character's Avatar or Familiar's Avatar? * How do I Start my own Role-playing Game as a Dungeon Master? * Where can I ask a general Question about Role-playing Games here? * I will like to make a Donation

You can optionally make a Donation
, but you are under no obligation.Q. Do I have to make some set number of Posts as a requirement?
Role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons, Police Detective, and Pathfinder in the [+] Member Wars Role-playing Game
Board do not have this requirement.Q. I read somewhere about making 30 Core Posts?
A. No. There is NO POST requirement
to play in Role-playing Games. Q. How do I play Dungeons & Dragons?
A. You are in the right Board, look over the Threads here: [+] Member Wars Role-playing Game
for one that says something about "Character Approval" Or "Create Character", follow the instructions in that Thread as to how to create your Character. Be sure to note things like; the starting level, the version (For instance Dungeons & Dragons 2, 3.5, or 4), and any special rules the Dungeon Master has for his game.Q. I've never created a Dungeons & Dragons Character before, is there some generator that can help?
A. Yes, when you click the "Create Character" Button you will be given options to use generators to create your Character. Most Dungeon Masters will also help you create your Character or even create one for you if you give them a description of the kind of character you want.Q. Where can I ask questions about Role-playing Games if I am still confused about how to start?
A. Member Wars Requests & Support
if it is generally related to Member Wars or you can try each game's Support Thread. If you are still unsure use the Member Wars Requests & Support
and you will be directed to the right place.Q. Where can I review Dungeons & Dragons, talk about Character types / classes etc.?
A. [+] Board, Card, & Role-playing Game Reviews
Board. Search among the Threads there are lots of different Dungeons & Dragons related material there even if it is not the current Topics being Discussed. Optionally you can start a Thread in that Board if you do not find what you are looking for.Q. Where can I learn more about Dungeons & Dragons Character Types & Feats without having to buy the Books?
A. The WorldOfMedieval.com site has a database / SRD of 3.5 Dungeons & Dragons:
* Dungeons & Dragons Basics
* Dungeons & Dragons Races
* Dungeons & Dragons Classes
* Dungeons & Dragons Skills
* Dungeons & Dragons Feats
* Dungeons & Dragons How To Combat
* Dungeons & Dragons Equipment
* Dungeons & Dragons Adventuring Tips
* Dungeons & Dragons SpellsQ. Can I share my personal schedule or more about me so others know about it?
A. Yes, but ONLY in your Introduction Thread (The first Post you made when you joined this Community) within this Board: [+] Introductions & Member Sharing
. Do not use Threads in the Member Wars section or anywhere else in fact to Discuss other things that are not related to the game in which you are Replying. Using one game Thread to talk about another game is also inappropriate and is considered hijacking (Trying to shift attention to another game). Q. Can I post links to other Role-playing Games or reference other sites?
A. No! There is to be absolutely no advertizing
of any sort EVEN if you think it is a valuable resource. We do allow reviews for external offical Role-playing Games here: [+] Board, Card, & Role-playing Game Reviews
. By official we mean they are published Role-playing Games like Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder and so forth, not something on an online site or other community.Q. Can I put a link to an in-house Role-playing Game or the WorldOfMedieval.com SRD?
A. Yes that is permitted, however you will not go to one game to link people to another game, that will be grossly unfair to try and stir attention from one game to the next.Q. Can I put my Contact information openly or ask Members for their Email or to message them privately?
A. No! You definitely have not read what you agreed to when you joined: Constructive Posting Policy
. All Discussion here is public only. The only other way this can be made possible is if two Members who both donated towards Premium accounts wanted to Communicate, then and ONLY then is it possible. In addition to this do not attempt to hint how to find you or external sites online.
