Make up your own RP. If you want, don't be afraid to ask around for advice on how a good RP is made.

Yeah, that's a good plan.

It just so happens that there is a serious lack of Inn RP threads here. Every RP forum or subforum needs an inn to hang out at and to spawn subquests.

We had one it was called cassual RP. It evolved into a full fledged Sci-Fi Rp with intruiges and a evil empire

The biggest thing is the right title. I was really into the casual RP it's just the fact that we're on opposite sides of the globe kinda hindered it a little.

For beginners you really want to start a casual RP with a good name. Just include Casual RP in the title and you should get a nice group. Not too big but decent sized and usually pretty leinient to the noobs. These are actually my favorite when they get going because it's not all up to the GM and can be taken in multiple directions.

Just set up a scene and an implied time period/ level of magic/ etc. Like Science fiction, Feudal Japan, WWII, etc.

Please do something soon. I'm starving for a casual. It's all so formal around here. I mean it's good for a while but occasionally you just need a break.

Might as well put in my two bits.

First of all, you don't make just one character and then go looking for RPs you want to join. You look at sign-up threads, and all of those should have either 'sign-up' or something like 'how about this' in the title of the thread. You look at it if you're interested, and then the GM should have a bunch of information about the RP, including what it's about, and what kind of information you should have about your character.
The GMs will tell you if there's magic, different races, different equipment, and if it isn't anywhere in any posts and it's not obvious enough that you could guess if it was in it or not, then just ask.

Second, you say everything is 'too far in motion to mess with'. Chances are that you're looking at an RP that's already started. Most times, if you didn't sign up for the RP before it started, it's just better to leave that RP alone. Unless you really, just have to join, most RPs have a Discussion thread. Questions or anything like that are posted there. Just post saying something like, "This looks really interesting. Is it ok if I join?" Or if you are too nervous for that, (I don't see why anyone would, it's just an online forum) PM the GM (...) and ask if you can join. They may or may not let you in, but if they do, be ready with a character idea in mind, and post it so the GM can say if anything's wrong with that.
If you do start in the middle of an RP, have some way that your character can join the main group, but not so suddenly as, "Hi! I see that you guys are a wandering gang! May I join you?"

There, that about sums all I wanted to say. If you still have questions, just post here again about what you need help with, or PM one of the RPers already here.

Other notes.

1) Use correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. If you don't, people will hate you.

2) Be smart. No one likes stupid people.

Okay. I've read this entire thing, and what with all these sign-ups and all, I was thinking that wouldn't it make just a smidge of sense to make a sticky where you post your main character so you can just link its bio into the sign-up thread when you...sign up? Yeah. Forgive me if I sound new. ^^'

EDIT: So this place is different than other places I've been to. Got it. Okay.

Sorry, I had a Fighter moment :fighter:

Well, newbie, thats because we all don't use the same character for all the RPs we have. Would it make sense to have a gun toting marine in a fantasy setting? Heavens to betsy no. And a mage in WW2? Good golly no.

Every RP has a sign up (usually), and these signups are there because the RPs vary wildly. We have about ten Vampire RPs, a boat load of Fantasies, and a 'smidgen' of Modern ones. If you used the same character for every different one, you'd be a moron.

We're not playing twenty ongoing games (or round or campaigns or what not) of D+D here *thank jeebus*. SO just read the sign up, if the story + setting appease to you, then sign up with a character that pertains to those ramifications.
