    Hi All -

    I am a long time gamer and GM. I have been playing TMNT since I was 13, and Marvel and Star Wars (D6 Style) since I was 17. Being that I am 33, I think you get the point that I've been in it awhile. Anywho, I am new to gaming and GMing on the Jedi Forums website and wanted to check and see if you have any suggestions for how I can advertise the games that I wish to start up. All input is welcomed.

    Hey Mmart...

    It depends on what exactly you are aiming to run.

    This area of the boards, as you've probably figured out, is for play by post gaming. You can advertise games in [link=]this thread[/link]. You can see many examples of different sorts of ads there, and you can more or less do as those posters do. Having a hook, pitching a good story, and all around selling your ideas are all are nice things to have in your ads.

    Also, the RPF is above all a close community. Getting to know people personally is a great way to get people to play your games. Friends like to play with friends, so getting cozy with the people you write with is usually a good idea. :p This naturally comes with time, but can be sped along by using social threads, IM messaging, etc. :)

    If you want to advertise games in real-life (like you want to start a local session in a certain city), or if you're interested in pen and paper / dice RPGs, [link=]this board[/link] will be of more interest to you. I believe you would just post up whatever you are looking for there.
