Hi all.

Just poping in to introduce myself. I am a friend of Shaithis' who convinced me to give this a shot.

I have TONS of PnP experience (started with original red box DnD when I was 9, I thought I was so cool cause the box said for ages 10+ ) about 21 years or so (oops, just dated myself didn't I ) but I have never tried a play by post system.

I am married (7 years) to another new member as well, Whitinator and we have 2 children (one 5 and the other is 1) and for that reason, I hear this is the system for me.

Anyways, just wanted to say hi and thanx to all the guys running and maintaining a site like this for RPers to use and play around on.

Welcome to ...

..... both of you to The Red Dragon Inn and I am looking forward to our participation together in Legacy!

I came over to the RDInn about 2 months ago as a first time D&D player with a group of dueling friends [from a PBM game we have played for many years together] and somewhere along the way I got acquainted with some of the other inmates in this asylum and found myself joining several adventures!

Welcome, Szordrin, to the Red Dragon Inn!!

We hope you'll have the wonderful experience that is promised to you. If you're looking to find a game, check out the 'recruitment' area. There are always games looking for players, or players looking for games, so you could also post something yourself.

Have some happy gaming here at the inn.

mucho welcomes

It's so nice to see people joining again! We hit a rough patch about two years ago (I've been here since about 2001) where there was nothing going on.

But you definitely joined at the right time. I would argue this is the most active we've ever been, and summer usually gets stronger when school is out.

Join a game or two. Start with free form just to get the hang of playing online and then find a new D&D game starting up.

Oh, and don't feed any of the Grugg's running around... especially that big one.

Greetings indeed!

Welcome to the Inn, Szordrin and Whitinator!!

You`ll find that you are amongst good company. A goodly number of us are married with kids... I`m guessing you and I are roughly the same age (31 for me), and I`ve got ya beat of the kids part! (Actually, I have most folks beat on the kids part. Haha!) Number 5 just came today! Mine kids are ages 7 y/o, 5 y/o, 3 y/o, 1.5 y/o, and 16 hours old. (Almerin would have you believe I`m building my own army, but pay no attention to that!)

And you are correct! Play-by-post is a great and flexible way to continue gaming while managing a young family. While games tend to be slower paced than table-top, in most of the games here, you will find the depth of the story richer. At least that is my experience.

We hope you both enjoy your stay!

Welcome to the Inn, do you and your significant other!

Please do feed the Gruggster ...

It keeps him from sniffing the arms and legs of the rest of us in anticipation.

A add my "Welcome to the Inn" to you and your clan. Innmates us an apt name for those of us here, because sometimes it gets crazy-crazy. But most of us (with the exception of Grugg, maybe) are intelligent and fun people.

I am new to this venue as well, but not new to gaming (25+ years of D&D and various other systems under my belt). Nonetheless, I still look forward to th opportunity to game with you (or agin ya, as DM)

Thanks guys

Thank you all for the warm welcome, and Ayrn, A HUGE Gratz on your new lvl 1 (seriously, what drugs are you taking to keep your sanity? 5 kids? You must be a Zen master. )

Thank you all again, it looks like fun

I`m fond of the motto I was saw on a pregnant woman`s shirt:

"Birth Control Is For Sissies!"

Four kids has actually been a really good time... tough to say how five will be. Bad time to ask now, too, what with feeds every three hours and nasty tar-poo. (Sorry, folks.)

I`m sure it will likely be "really good time +1."

Welcome to the site always great to have new members. I look forward to sharing a game with both you and your wife. Right now wouldn't be that great a time for me to join a new game though. I have too much on my plate as it is right now.

Anyways, welcome to the in, hopefully once you've been here a couple weeks you'll start voting for the inn on a regular basis.

Welcome, Szordrin and Whitinator! So very glad to see new blood here at the Inn. If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask me or another staff member. Or one of the awesome veteran gamers we have lurking around here.

welcome to the Inn

Wish I could say I play a lot in the RP forums but mainly I just lurk and enjoy everyone's talent. I do however, love the stress relief of the posting games forum.

have a nice stay at the inn.
