Are we playing actual games here, or just writing stories?

Most of what's here is writing stories, although there have been people get a more D&D/Pathfinder-esque game with dice rolls going from time to time as well. Both are welcome here.

Hello there! You seem like you could use a little direction, so I'll give you the basic copy-pasted introductory information to get you started, and I'm around if you've got any questions!

To begin, here's the obligatory link to our rules and FAQs. Check them out when you can and feel free to ask for clarification if you need it.

If you're looking to join or start an RP, try looking in one of the "Requests" sections - there's one for casual (basic, easygoing RP), one for intermediate (a bit more effort required) and one for advanced (for when you really want to put effort in, but much slower). Any of the recent "REQ" threads in those sections are good places to get started - just take a look and see if you can find something that appeals to you. There's a huge variety of RPs on this site, and you're more than welcome to create one of your own as well.

If you have a specific idea in mind you want to create, you can just put up a request in one of the requests areas, and then people will be able to see it and join in. Try to give people a basic overview of your "world" and any relevant information, as well as at least a teaser of the plotline, so they know what they're getting into (mystery, battle, romance, whatever). If you have specific "parts" in mind for other people's characters, you can list those as well, although often people really enjoy creating their own.

There are one other area - Superhero Sandbox, which is a multi-tier comic-style universe. For this section, you'll create a character (or characters) and weave them in and out through several different storylines. We actually just started up a new Introductory Area for new people to get involved without having to worry about learning all the background lore.

I mod over at the Superhero Sandbox (hence the unabashed advertisement there!), and I promise we're not scary people in there even if we may appear that way. I also hang out all over the place on the forum, so I like to think I have a pretty decent handle on what's going on, and I'm happy to answer any questions I can.

Feel free to hit me with any inquiries and I'll do my best to answer them for you. Enjoy your stay!
