Hi, beginner here
I'm new and I'm terrified, but I'm really excited. If anyone has any advice or any games that they need a new player for then message me please. I'm weird, and I'm ready to play!:)

Hi, beginner here
We are gamers, so by definition we are all Wierd.
If your looking for a game I suggest looking in both the Players wanted forum and looking for GM forums. Many games here come about because enough people show interest in a kind of game (ergo the GM wanted section).
May also try looking through the Game Purposal forum, something there may strike  a cord with you.

Hi, beginner here
To add to what ShadoPrism has said: Face to face roleplaying is like guzzling down a Red Bull of roleplaying.  RPoL is a steady, IV drip of roleplaying.  Patience is often key. :)

Hi, beginner here
Welcome, Welcome!!

The IV drip metaphor is really apt. But some games are livelier than others, and you'll eventually find a game that fits your posting schedule. Best of luck, and may your dice roll true, and RNGesus bless you.

Hi, beginner here
It's a wonderful gaming site.  The only catch is that you have to change your proverbial mental gears when you go from live gaming to play by post.
It's important to be patient when you play in games here.

Hi, beginner here
What I always tell my players is: "Don't fall in love with the future."

In other words, in my experience PbP games take long enough that I think it's always better to focus on having fun in the moment. Love the routine of posting, rather than where your story might eventually go... because inevitably it will take months or years to get there, and how you feel now will definitely not be how you feel when you finally arrive.
