Hey All!
« on: October 22, 2014, 08:45:07 PM »
Hi everyone!
My name is Sarah, I am 20 years old and, while I've been roleplaying for about 10 years off and on (text based forums/one on ones/MMORPGs) I never had the opportunity to play a tabletop RPG even though the idea always intrigued me. Very recently though, I discovered a place to find 'online' tabletop groups for games like DnD, Pathfinder, Hero System, etc; and while one day I would like to play an actual tabletop, we had our first gaming session last Saturday (Fantasy Hero System) and it was so much fun. I am definitely hooked. 

I have an idea for a campaign and setting that I want to use with the Hero System when I am more familiar with it and can get comfortable with the idea of being a GM. I stumbled upon this forum in my quest to learn how to write a good campaign and from just the little bit I've seen so far- I quite like it.

I look forward to getting to know more of you and being part of the community!

Welcome, Sarah! You've certainly come to the right place. Lots of juicy campaign/world-building info here, both in the forums and on the main site. Looking forward to seeing your ideas, your feedback, and getting to know you!

Happy to see so many newcomers :)

We love kicking around ideas and all things gaming. I know nothing of Hero, but I've been playing tabletop RPGs for more than 20 years and it can be so much fun. I've recently begun a campaign via Roll20, which is pretty cool technology for those of us stuck in rural areas with few gaming options.

Feel free to hop into chat or post to give us a hint of your ideas and what you need help with.

Welcome Sarah, aka XMX. Generally we are too lazy to get more than a few letters of a name out of our keyboard.

Glad you found us. Hopefully you find enough great stuff to really get your wheels turning with GMing ideas. Hope to hear how it all goes and let us know what you use.

Good luck!!
