    Crazy, with a dash of insane, and a sprinkle of ‘out-of-my-gourd.’

    Stir, blend, shake, or whatever (doesn’t really matter) well and wal-la! You have yourself an Elu!

    ;)

    Greetings, I'm interested in playing a RPG on these boards and could use some help with this. I've been lurking a bit on the RPG boards as well to get an idea on how things work over there.

    Welcome. At the top of the thread there is a list of those who are willing and able to do so.

    Which reminds me, @Adalia-Durron, could you put me back on the available list, please?

    Ah, thank you. Not too much experience with RPG's so hopefully this won't turn into a disaster.

    Not to worry. Everyone here, and everyone writing in the RPG's have been at the same point you are when we began. That list I mentioned, we all are more than willing to assist anyone that wants to learn and get into the games to do so. That doesn't mean we expect you to be perfect from the start, hell we all do still make mistakes from time to time, we're only human. The reason that list at the start of the thread here is there is that each of us have our stronger interests or pulls, whether Star Wars or other genres, and our own ways of doing things so finding one that fits you best is what is important.

    Whether you ask me or another I do wish you well and hope you enjoy the experience as you begin to take part in the stories.

    Hmm, reading the list I'm not sure who would be the best fit to help.

    One area I know I need improvement in is grammar and overall writing. I've always had bunch of crazy and weird ideas that I've found difficult to put on paper. Good writing is a key ingredient to creating fun scenarios and characters in a RPG after all.

    Apologies for taking so long to reply, I had some writing that needed to get finished and posted. Crazy and weird ideas are our bread and butter around here. I, personally have often found that when one comes I save it on a note, if you have a note app on your phone that's one way, or have a notebook around when you think of it. That way when you have more time, you can look it up again and think about it more, think about fleshing it out. That is partially how the game I am being the GM, (Game Master) of right now came about for example.

    Writing and grammar can be worked on and many programs that one can use also assist with the grammar or spelling portions, at least. I tend to use Google Docs myself and that one will either highlight or fix a grammar error and if highlighted it offers a solution. That way, even if I tend to write pretty well, I can focus more on the thoughts and feelings I want to be experienced when someone reads one of my posts. And some of it, honestly, is getting into the writing and just practice and repetition as you get more experience.

    Much thanks good sir, I appreciate your advice and shall use some of those programs you suggested.

    By the way, whoever I choose I take it I should PM them or post on here? I've also been considering just jumping into a game with a character sheet (which I do know I have to PM a gamemaster).

    Yes Dear........ o_O
    @Darth_Elu or myself can help you when you have chosen. We can hook you up ;)

    I found the 'abbreviations and anagrams' the hardest to get used too. So please if you have an issue, do not hesitate to ask. No one here will judge or laugh, I still have to ask. ;)

    Thank you, Adalia. And yes there are a bunch of acronym's. But @KaleeshFett, she is correct, when you decide who you would like assisting she or @Darth_Elu can put you in touch with them.

    Glad to see you taking an interest, @KaleeshFett! :) And thank you to both @darthbernael and @Adalia-Durron for assisting with his initial questions while I was away. :)

    If you continue to need any help, just PM away or post here. Both work. ;) While I've been rather busy in RL currently and will be still for a bit of time, PMing for any help with learning the RPF and especially getting connected with a potential master is not a problem at all. So feel free to PM me or Adalia as has already been stated.

    I wish you well in your future adventures! ;)

    Late reply, but I think I'll hold off from RPG'S for now as work is getting busy and I want to improve my writing.

    Very much appreciate all your help and I do intend to still post around these forums, refamilarize myself as it were. I do plan to still role play with you all eventually, so thanks again for all your help.

    I
    I believe @darthbernael felt you were well on your way with RPG and no longer required his assistance. He will, of course, be around if you have further issues, but I am guessing you haven't required his help in sometime which brought him to his decision. ;)

    RPG and Fan Fic folk are all most welcoming. And chat in the social threads until you're ready to jump in, so folks will have a chance to get to know you & vice versa. Everyone starts somewhere, and we all like new faces! :)
