Hello Claude Faustus,
Even if you are not new to Roleplaying I STILL suggest you go take a look at the Guide to RPG as it cleared up some questions for me. Also, as I see that you've been Roleplaying for Eleven years but through messenger I don't think you know some of the terms are in the Forums, so once again, I think you should check the guide out. You can also go the Ask a Comrade thread where you can easily get an answer to your question, or, you can Pm the nice Lady of the Lake, Squee and she'll answer any of your questions that you have. Also, i'm quite the Video Game lover myself, and, if you're a nice person who is quite fun and easy to get along with then you'll do just fine in the forums, now, have a good day and I wish you luck in the Forums.
