• Play Pen and Paper Games Online RSS Feed

    If you've been looking for a place to play traditional pen and paper style role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, or Shadowrun you've come to the right place. The members of the Tangled Web all have one thing in common; we love to play RPGs. We have two different ways to play your favorite systems and settings with friends around the world.

    The best way to play online RPGs by far is via a Virtual Gaming Table like OpenRPG or MapTool. These virtual game tables allow you to play Dungeons and Dragons online and remain as true to the face to face style of play as possible when you are separated from your friends by thousands of miles. ...

    Welcome to the Tangled Web! You are joining a large community of gamers quite literally as diverse as the world is large. We have members of all ages, playing all kinds of games, and literally living all over the globe. So regardless of who you are, where you live, and what kind of game you like you play--you are in good company. For starters, you're going to want to Register if you haven't already done so. You can read and access many areas of the forum without an account, but to really participate and use many of the great features that we have you need to be a member.

    Now that you are an official member... tell us who you are! Just head on over to the Main Gate, create a new thread, and tell us a little about yourself! You can say as much or as little as you like, but it's just generally nice to introduce yourself to the throngs of people here in these cob-webby halls.

    You're probably chomping at the bit now wondering where you can jump into a game, so that's where we'll go next: the Recruiting Office. Generally the way things work is that GMs looking for players will create new threads here for their games. People can then read the little blurb and reply to the threads for the games that they are interested in--it's that simple! There is also a thread for "Players looking for GMs" that some GMs will go through on occassion when they need people to fill spots in their games as well, so especially if you don't see any games recruiting that you like, add your name to the list. Also keep in mind that new games are always popping up, so check back every couple days to see what new games have shown up.

    This is a blog post I've been meaning to write for a while as most posts I see in the Recruiting office aren't really that good at selling the game and telling others about it. Partially thats from people not being sure how to communicate it, and partially because they think they have to adhere to the questions Asmoedeus put there as some things to answer.

    In this blog post I plan to go over what I think makes a successful recruiting post and how to create one to get more interest in your game and to better communicate what your game is about. ...

    None of TekBot's commands were published in any help file. It was my rule that if you don't already know the command, you have no business using it. This prevents new users from jumping into the room, seeing a new toy, and spamming the ever loving heck out of the channel with it as they try out every little thing. Today, I break that rule and produce some actual documentation.

    You can find TekBot on #thetangledweb IRC channel by clicking the RPG chat button on up at the top menu. TekBot's DMBot feature allows him to generate a random dungeon according to rules offered in the DND 4e Dungeon Master's Guide. After its completion, I gave it a quick test run with 2 other members of the chat, and we all had a blast. The DMBot can work well for a case where you happen to have a small group and want to try a 1 shot dungeon crawl, or even if you wish to play without a dungeon master.
