Welcome to the forums, Wendigo! I am glad those FFG posts finally struck a chord with someone. Your experience will definitely come in handy.

If you haven't already read the rules section, please give it a look over. It is standard stuff that I am sure you've encountered before. One thing we all utilize is the LINE app - it's a free texting app for smartphones. It's huge in Japan where a good handful of us worked/still work, and we have a forum group on there as well as OOC groups for any games people are in. It really helps expedite GM-to-player comms.

Let's see about getting you into a game!

Unfortunately, I have no smartphone. I will check on the forum rules however. I've always had fun worldbuilding & homebrewing, I think I collected a massive amount of Xenos stuff for rogue trader

LINE does have a desktop version. You might need it as GMs use it to keep players updated and for easy OOC talk (much quicker and efficient then PMing over the forum).

Welcome! Glad you made an account on our forum Wendigo.

It's probably 80% bs'ing and 20% player prodding. I'll admit, the computer version is not the best, so I won't be hurt if you don't want to get it. We've managed without, it just takes forever to get things done.

Welcome wendigo. As you may surmise, we're a pretty tight nit group here. Most of us have been playing together for many years and we're always looking for more of the same.

Hey everyone. My name's Adam, screen name Obsidian_Spoon. I joined y'all yesterday on Line, thanks to a Jeff, and promised an intro today.

I'm an artist, designer, gamer. Just getting started as a sculptor (I make monsters, mostly). I work a lot with steel, too.

Outside of art, some of my interests are snark and sarcasm, Guillermo del Toro and Miyazaki films, grim and/or heroic fantasy, percussion, and travel. Once upon a time, community building was real important for me, but I've been adrift for a few years now.

I'm fairly new to the whole play by post thing, but as it's harder and harder to have sit-down games, I'm getting more into it. My gaming background is DnD 3.0-.5, Pathfinder, Starfinder, and older White Wolf stuff. I've some random experience with d6 and other systems, but not much. I'm open to learning more, and pick things up pretty fast. I tend to lean more towards serious themes, but gallows humor and some ridiculosity isn't bad, either.

Anyway, thanks for the invite, and I look forward to finding my place with y'all.

Really glad to have you, Adam. You've got kindred spirits all up in this community. So, feel free to build as much as you like here; we've got folks from all over the globe (Japan, New Zealand, Germany, Canada, etc.) all down to game and have a good time.

I would suggest giving the recruitment thread a good once over to get in on any potential games. We had a DnD 5.0 game that sadly fell through, but there are still a lot of games you could get into.

If you have any homebrew content you want to post and have others check out, you can post in the "Workshop and Breeding Grounds" forum.

Hey Adam/Spoon,

Welcome to the community! As I mentioned on Line, the Wrath and Glory game, Path to Damnation hasn't started properly yet, and I could definitely use some extra players. If you're interested, I should be able to sort out everything you need to join in!

Well, my week is also hectic!

I'll pm you with some information, but otherwise you should read the recruitment thread, then head to the game board and read whatever you feel like you need.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi, I'm Luka. I found this forum by chance, while looking to read some 40k related RPG games. I was actually kind of nostalgic because few year ago I used to play play-by-post deathwatch and dark heresy (and some homebrew dnd) RPG with my friends. When I found this forum I was pleasantly suprised. Hopefully I'll play and contribute (or at least read Very Happy ) to some cool stories.

Hey Luka. Welcome aboard.

My name's Ian, though everyone here calls me Bob for obvious reasons. Take your pick Laughing

Happy to have you here. If you decide you want to join a game definitely check out the recruitment section. Probably could fit you in my dark heresy game as well if you were interested (it's called Blood Moon if you want to read up on it). But if you just want to read some RPG stories, that's cool too Very Happy

Thanks for the welcome. I am definitely interested in your DH game, but before jumping in I would like to read up on rules a bit (so I don't have to look everything up all the time) and on your game as well and generally think through what kind of character I would like to play.

Sure thing, feel free to take your time. We're all 40k RPG veterans as well so we're happy to answer any questions you may have.

O, I am quite knowledgeable about the rules, I've played deathwatch game for neary a year and its a similar system, but it is mostly for my benefit, so I'm not distracted by finding where some rule is while I'm writing my in-game post. But I'm sure something I can't find will come up eventually Smile and I'll be grateful for any help. Rules aside, I'm more interested in creating character that fits into the overall theme of 40k or specific game, so now I have some reading to do Laughing

Welcome as well! We've got a rogue-trader inspired DH2 game where we have an mechanicus explorator mission. Archmagos Augustus (my character) would certainly like to recruit more skilled magos.

Welcome to the forums, Luka!

Tell us a bit about yourself, if you don't mind. Where are you from? How long have you been gaming? etc.

Or don't... and just be really spooky.

Welcome Luka. Hope to see you in a game soon... I'm sure there are some games that could take more players.

Well, as much as I'd like to be spooky...
I'm from Zagreb, Croatia. I've been gaming for quite some time, like 12-13 years. I played tabletop version of warhammer fantasy and 40k, but I also played a bit of RPG, as I said before. It was mostly ffg deathwatch and some DnD with my friends and I only played in play-by-post format. I really like warhammer 40k setting and that is my main interest. IRL, I'm agronomist and in the process of getting my masters degree in animal genetics.

I'm Nathan, though my username is fine too. Everyone's throwing their games in, but feel free to check the recruitment thread as well for any open games. Have fun, I hope you enjoy the site.

Welcome to the fun house!

Im Heath, or Syl if you prefer. I run the deathwatch and Dnd e5 games.

Animal genetics? One of my college teachers did that. Interesting.
