    Quick Hello

    Hi All,

    Just dropping by to see the forums here (and on Steam). I've been happy with FG and the community at large, thanks.

    I'm planning on running a test (zero session) as DM in a couple weeks for a 5th edition one shot; checking modules, extensions, ect., but wanted to try hand as a player first. Any 5e one shots planned near the end of May?

    Also, any advise on player recruitment (here or Steam), VoIP (was thinking Skype), calendar use (here), best practices, I am more than open and grateful to suggestions.

    Thanks you for your time.

    Welcome Procurator

    You will find it easy to recruit numbers for 5e most of the time. Sometimes an odd timeslot/day combination makes recruitment slower.
    As will all online games like this you can experience some attrition especially early on.
    Make sure you set out your expectations clearly.
    Post your Timezone clearly and if not playing in North American evenings consider posting the TZ conversion for PST, MST, CST, EST, CET, UTC, JST, AEST, NZT to make it clearer to players exactly when you game runs.

    As a player - most times you wont get an invite to come and join a game, mostly you will get a better response posting on threads where GMs are posting their games.

    Great point on time zones. I've been surprised by the international demographic on this site and steam.

    Thanks again.
