Hey, guys....

I've been lurking here for a while now, and I've been involved in some games, but I would like to see if anyone can help me out.

I have been in a few RPGs, but I have to say that no game I have been in has ever ended well. All of them have simply fallen apart, and I'd like to join one that has a well-dedicated playerbase. Being a highschool senior, I have a good deal of free time, so I can post often.

I have some experience with the Fallout system (although no one ever has pnp games of that) and I know a little about the WoD system, but not a lot.

I am personally very roleplay-centric. I am unfortunately pretty ignorant of rules, but at least I won't be powergaming, I'd be thinking about what my character would do. The downside of this is that I would need a great deal of help in character creation and other things like that. Upper-level DnD is all greek to me, what with all the feats and skill-calculating and negative levels and things.

In short, I'm looking for whatever game/GM who is up to the challenge of taking me in. I don't exactly have a stable income to buy rulebooks, but I am eager to learn and even more eager to make characters and join whatever group you have me join.

Thanks for reading all this, those who did!

It might be better to post something like this in a thread asking for players to join a game you find interesting.

Also, you don't need to worry about negative levels in DnD character creation unless you're making a really odd character.

Good idea. I've seen a few games around I'd like to join, but the amount of help I would need to get started in a system I've only heard of (WTF is GURPS? (among others)) is quite off-putting.

Well, seems like I've gotten a pretty firm "thanks but no thanks" from this community... I'll just get back to lurking and look out for any new games starting up, I suppose.

Don't feel bad. Usually there are more players than there are games, so applying for a game that is just starting up gives you a much better shot than posting a "player looking for a game" ad.

Thanks for the advice. I've been thinking of joining Eidolon, having read the "how to join" section, since I am more character-oriented than system-oriented.

That sounds like a reasonable idea, Candleman. They do use the D&D 3.5 system but are more liberal with rules in the face of the story.

It's not a game that updates very often though, keep that in mind.

I didn't! What I said at first is a boon imho.

That it doesn't update very frequently is good or bad - depending on what a player wants.

Yes, Eidolon has been slow lately. I blame itches.

The first rule about Eidolon, don't talk about Eidolon.

Don't you fail to phrase that in the form "Don't you <> Eidolon! "

...Eidolon!

Don't you dare think your playful banter hasn't raised my spirits and gotten me into making a character to post on Eidolon!

Okay, honestly... I think that's the end of it.
