    Hello all! Just as the title says, I've lurked for awhile and never really stopped by this sector of the galaxy. I was hoping to find some good fiction, some good games, and possibly get some insight on some fan film projects.

    I look forward to interacting with all of you!

    I have! I've been checking a couple of the games out but I think a lot of them are a little far along for me jump into right now.

    Some GM’s accept new players anytime. So, unless it states the game is closed to new players, PM the GM/GM’s and ask. :) The more the merrier!

    I just feel really awkward jumping into something already established. I've tried doing it with D&D games at our local comic shop and it still makes you feel like kind of an outsider. I dunno, guess it's just me?

    Not at all. Even though we are a really welcoming group of people, I get how you feel. Dont want to be the new person jumping in the middle of something. The propblem about waiting is that some of the games never really end, so if you wait you will never get to play. In any particular game thread you can always PM whoever is the game lead. Even if you jump in, I think in most cases people will be more than welcoming.

    Some games, like Teh Mole do require you to wait until a new round starts however.

    I actually went ahead and made a post in the Resource Forum hoping to spark some interest.

    I hope it works. :han:

    @BookExogorth Thank you for the welcome! Those games look a little confusing to me, as I was looking more for roleplaying games. It couldn't hurt to give them a shot though!

    And my avatar is art of a character I had commissioned. I'll get the whole picture uploaded so everyone can see!

    @Glimmer of Hope
    That's really cool! What species is the character? Are those lightsabers there?

    I haven't thought up a name for her species yet (they're kind of like lamprey-humanoids?) and those are indeed lightsabers!

    I really haven't thought her out that deeply just yet. I hope to soon, though!

    Thanks! And I wish I could say I drew it, but I did not. It is art that I had commissioned, however!
