Introduction to Role Play please? - April 26th 2009, 02:31 AM

Hello. I am interested in delving into the cult of RPGs (ha ha ha). The problem I am currently faced with is the fact that I am so technologically impaired I need a helper monkey. As I can't afford one, would someone please tell me how to get started? I've read rules on different sites, but alas, I fail to understand.

Thank you very much.

I'm not an expert on RPG's, in fact I avoid them, but the best way to learn is always to play it. Once you get started, RPG's are notoriously easy to get addicted to and you'll pick up the tips and tricks quickly. If you play an MMORPG, you can ask other players in-game if you get stuck.

Other than that, I'll leave this thread to Invictus

Re: Introduction to Role Play please? - April 26th 2009, 01:22 PM

haha. Well, it depends on what kind of RPG you want to do. RPGs come in all shapes and sizes.

Some food for thought: What platform are you going to be playing on? Xbox360, PS3, Wii, or PC?
Also, what kind of RPG are you looking for? Are you into action or puzzles? Do you want to play online or by yourself? What setting are you interested in?

There are so many RPGs that it's hard to narrow it down to a general sense without knowing your personal preferences and interests. However, there are some classic games that you could start with, such as the Final Fantasy and Legend of Zelda series.

Here's a link that could help: click here! It is a list of some best selling games on GameStop. They might be able to provide some good information on what games you want to start with.

Hehe, cheers Adz, but I need to know what kind of RPG you're meaning.
Since you mentioned that you're not good with technology (and it's in this forum ^^; ) I'm assuming you're meaning computer RPGs.
In that case *points to the links that Adz posted and grumbles how he didn't get to say any more* >.>

Hello. Thank you. I am interested in, or so I believe they are called, "story-telling" rpgs. Similar to Dungeons and Dragons.

More specifically, how do I post, and where do I post?... and what do I post? Those would be good to know.

If it assists your, ahem, assistance, just pretend I know nothing about computers. I don't even know what a computer is, all I know is that I want to play happy-fun-time games.

Thank you again.

Ahh, you're meaning forum RPs.
In that case, the first thing you have to do is find a forum that does them. I'm thinking first perhaps ask google, just put in "forum Role playing RPG" and that should hopefully come up with some results of the kind you're looking for.
As for how to actually do it...well, the forum you find the RP on can't be that much different to this one =)

Ah. Okay. I see. Then you'll probably find that in a different forum altogether, as Invictus said. Google is your friend!

As Steph and Janos have both said, googling for roleplaying forums should bring up a huge amount of forums. Make sure you pick one that actually interests you though!

I didn't post any links

Since this has pretty much nothing to do with technology, I'm going to close this now. PM me if you want it reopened.
