Ah... another free form chatter. That's how I started into all this craziness myself.
Don't be too afraid of the rules based stuff. Most of the DM's can walk you through anything and I've found that in the forum setting the rules are not as all encompasing as they are in a more 'tabletop' setting.
Um... the normal warnings... don't get caught feeding the Grugg. Check out the March Newsletter if you want to know why (end shameless plug by the editor for the Newsletter). Also here is a hanky for when Eol finds you, keep it handy.
If you need anything let us know. Names in purple or red are staff members, but the guys in blue are very nice and helpful too.
Rules scare me and I have issues with authority so I think I will stick with freeform for now.
I dont know what a Grugg or Eol are but I will keep an eye open for them.
I look forward to posting here I have read some interesting and wonderful stories and cant wait to join in. I hope I can live up to what I am reading of others.

Hello and welcome to the Inn!
I already fear for your innocence. I'm afraid even though Merideth was kind enough to give a warning, it'll be in vain. The truth is, that no matter how well you're prepared, Eol will get you in the end.
But have no fear, dear. Though he may seem.. hmm... somewhat intrusive at first, you'll soon find out the true beauty of his personality. After all, he wouldn't be part of our Staff, if he weren't such a fabulous dude. (This last part was of course here just to point out what a nice fellow I am too)
As for feeding the Grugg... Well that's up to you and the power of your will to fight the urge to do so. I can only say... don't. You might survive to regret it.
Any questions - don't hesitate to ask.

Hey! It's Jheherren!
Welcome aboard, Innmate! Ever so glad to have you wandering our hallowed halls! We hope you find whatever it is you're looking for hereabouts and stick with us... we just looooooove growing our family, round here, you know?
Anyhoo, as Meri and Raven have already pointed out, all of us staff-type odd-balls are always available to answer questions, help you out, etc, and, of course, our non-staff-type odd-balls are pretty darn handy, too, so, if you need anything, don't hesitate to fire off a PM, tack up a post, buy Eol a captain and coke, or whatever.

I'm the tap dancing bartender bullywog
Hi!!! *slips Eol that cap'n and coke* I'm Ion one of the blue hats. Here I'm told you'll want to listen to this when you go to sleep. *hands Jheherren a tape that when played repeats in a monotone Grugg voice "Feed the Grugg"* And you'll want to join us on the Redwyrm School thread if you ever decide to give forum rules play a go. Like Meri said we're a little more lenient on rules in the forum especially if you're a good Rp'er. Their mostly there to keep us from god moding.
Welcome to the inn see Keeper of Dragons for some special treatment.
*wince!* Sheesh, Eol got ya good there! Need another hankie? Lemme see here. . .no, that's a shrunken Paladin's head no help there. . .uhhh, not quite, 'cuz that's an ankheg I'll just squish him for you 'fore it eats somebody *CRUNCH!*. . .and *flap-flap* that's an imp, one of my many servitors. . .*sigh* okay I know it's not a hankie but how 'bout these? *offers bouqet of flowers* At least they're pretty. C'mon, have a spiced mead on me!
Welcome to the Inn! If you have only one-tenth the fun I do, You'll Never Leave! Bwahahaha!

Hello and Welcome
Welcome to the inn. It is always nice to gain a new innmate sometimes referred t0 as Huggy Bear (by me), is just a cuddly bear wit h an insatiable appetite, so he says all the time. This is why we say not to feed him. However, I never heard of him biting anyone.
Yeah, greetings, I used to be a hardcore freeform RP'er on nexxushost The Keep. But once I made the shift to D&D nothing made me happier. Feel free to inquire about games, I'd be more than glad to eduacte you on basis of 3.5e
