Hello. I've done tabletop RPG's for a long time but have recently been separated from my group. I came looking to hopefully RP and have some fun, but I'm having trouble evening figuring out how to get involved in a new or currently running game. Please help.
Welcome to the Guild, The reason you joined is pretty much why I joined. I think you'll have a lot of fun. Joining and RP is pretty easy, but one thing to keep in mind is most RPs here do not bother with stats, instead focusing on the collaborative story. How much you like to write will determine where you look for RP. Here are the standards
Free Roleplay - No standards. For roleplaying involving one-liners, few-liners, speed-posting, and for anyone who doesn't want to worry about standards.
Casual Roleplay - Some standards. Roleplay here if you enjoy writing at least a paragraph or two, character development, and some depth. Casual RP is more laid back and lighthearted than Advanced RP but more moderated than Free RP. It's a good middle ground. No one-liners.
Advanced Roleplay - Elevated standards. Advanced RP focuses on longer posts that include character development and elaborate plot development. Minimum 2-3 paragraphs per post.
Once you figure out what level you want to start at (I started at casual because I loved to write and now go between causal and advanced depending on where the RPs that interest me are), you head over to the interest checks which is where we keep our new and recruiting RPs. Here are the links for them. We have one for each level/style of RP as well as a general one.
So you look through those and see if any appeal and then post in the thread expressing interest. then you follow the GM's directions which often are heading to the OOC (out of Character thread) when made to post your CS (Character sheet). Each GM runs things a little differently. I recomend you subscribe to any thread you join so that you can more easily keep track. That can be done in your settings. Also, we have a level of Staff here called Comrades and they are here to help new users and assist as needed. Any of them (myself included) are more than happy to answer questions, here or via PM. Here is a handy Guide which might answer a few of your questions as well as give you links that are helpful, including the Comrades. Let me know if you need anything else! Happy RPing!

Bearing greetings to those new to RPG,
They are welcomed by a queen emblazoned with an L and a T.

Family and friends through many years
And talented players saw this as well
We flooded the boards and began to gel
Characters popped and posts ran
The ideas and story truly began.
Where this will lead I canít say
But I can thank Lillian for the play.
