Young Grasshopper's Self-Introduction

edited February 2014 in Player Lounge
Hi, name's Finn. Completely new to tabletop RPGs, been reading about it here and there, but I've just decided to learn the ropes online, if possible. Hope that's alright.. Working in UTC+08:00, I have no prior experience, unless RPG-video games count?

Hoping to find some kind souls willing to teach as they go along, since I'm more of a hands-on person. Personally prefer Fantasy settings, but since I'm new, I'll try almost anything (except those of horror/extreme gore variety).

    Hi Finn aka Blackened_Ink

    Welcome to the OP Forums and to the wonderful world of RPG gaming. I have been playing FANTASY RPGs for many years and fully support TW's recommendation of the PATHFINDER game. If you haven't already invested heavily (in terms of time and money) in any one game as yet, then I heartily recommend it. However, whatever game system you choose to play, you have entered a fantastic new world that should keep you engaged for many years to come, and Obsidian Portal is a fantastic base on which to build any RPG. Welcome to the club and enjoy your voyage!

    CURRENT CAMPAIGN: "Mysteria": - set in Wolfgang Baur’s MIDGARD.
