Well, I will willingly admit it, I am a noob. I haven't played D&D before. I was told this is a fairly decent place to come and learn the basics and not so basics of the wonderful world of RPG. I'm always willing to learn as much as I can to make the game a very memorable experience. Very many thanks I will extend to those who are ready and willing to offer their assistance.
Dude I would appreciate that so much, I don't know how I could ever thank you enough. You have to show/tell me everything that you know about the most wonderfully awesome world of D&D.

Hello Glad you came here. It is never to late to learn to play D&D. It is such fun. Meet lots of neat players, long distance , play and meet so very interesting characters.
LEt you imagination free. There are lots of experienced and helpful DM's and players that can help you out. Look around the threads for games that interest you, lurk in them (that means follow along with what is happening, without participating. See how other play their characters and remember their characters are not the players. Some characters are difficult, some are nice, some are loyal and true, others deceitful, still others are brave and some are or foolhardy. See how people play their characters. You might be able to pick up a character where the player has had to drop a game just pay attention to the threads asking for replacements or new games starting.
I must say, you picked a fine place to learn. This is where I learned the basics of D&D. There is no comparison to a face-to-face game, but the slower pace of play-by-post makes learning the game much simpler. I hope you have a good time here, and if you ever need a hand with ANYTHING, just drop me a line.
Well I wasn't the first to greet you, but welcome all the same. Always good to see new faces.
I only joined up here a few months ago and I've found it wonderful here. Everyone is really nice and always willing to answer questions.
I know you said you were looking for D&D games, but I'm sure you'll find that we all play a little bit everything. I run the Borden Murder Mystery game, free form, and am always looking for people to come in (so I have less NPC's to play lol ). If your interested read it over and drop me a line, or just skip the reading for now and join up !
Well welcome again and will see you around!

Oh boy oh boy!
Fresh bloodmeat members! Welcome to the Inn!
I must agree with the earlier posts, you've picked an excellent place to learn. Honestly one of the best e-communities I've ever seen has the Inn. Welcome and enjoy!
Because no one said it yet, don't feed me apparently.
...because as of about three months ago, every new Innmate that joins gets a 'Don't Feed the Grugg' e-mail along with thier account verification stuff.
We thought about making it one of those annoying EULA pop-up thingies... you know, enter username, password, click Login... boink pop-up says "I will be a good Innmate and will not feed the Grugg"... select radio button "I agree" or "Feed the Grugg a Kitten". Had problems with PETA on that one, though, so we decided on the e-mail approach.
Welcome to the Inn Shadow Flare as I see that our Webmaster and a few of my fellow cronies have already greeted you, just let me say if your heavily into AD&D and other fantasy games you have come to the right place.
I hope you find what your looking for and enjoy doing so and come to love the inn as much as we do.
So again welcome and if you ever have any questions feel free to PM myself or any other of the Staff. We will do what we can to help.
