I guess that means I'm the next thing through the door...
44 years of gaming experience, 40 years of it playing GURPS (I participated in a beta test of the game during GenCon East back in 1982).  So, extensive gaming history and I know NOTHING about this site.  I'm also not in the least bit tech savvy, having no computer and doing all of this on my phone. How'm I doing so far?

I have some ideas for campaigns I'd like to run in here (some of which I've already run elsewhere).  Now I just have to learn how...

Welcome to our community of role players!  You will find all sorts of games  to your liking on here.  We are a large community yet we are all friends here.  If you need help with anything just ask and many will come to your aid.

We’ve been around for years too!  Some of us created dirt!

Make sure you turn on your rmail by going to the link at the top that is User preferences, there you will find some settings to play around with including the rmail one as that is how you and most GMs can talk.

On the main menu there are two forums you can find what you want to play in

Wanted: players At the top there is a link that is 'Search Games' and when you click on those words it gives you a more distinct search area for what you are looking for.

Wanted: GMs where you can make a post describing the type of games you are looking for and GMs check there for new players sometimes.

At the bottom of the main menu you will also find search link to find games and other good stuff.

So all I can say now is

A new GURPS GM? Be still, my beating heart! =) Welcome to the site! What questions do you have at this point?

To add to the advice already offered, you can also gauge interest for games by posting in the Game Proposals, Input, and Advice forum.

We have a pretty good pool of GURPS players here. If you go to Browse/Search games and search for Active games, you can get a good idea of how many ongoing games we have here. (Hint: it's never enough for my taste! (= ) You can also find a link there to RPOL's unofficial GURPS Community Lounge (or just PM me, and I can give you a link.)
