Hello and welcome to Iwaku, Jean!
I'm Kitti and it's a pleasure to meet you.
Hopefully, you'll have a great experience learning to roleplay with us. We have a wonderful member base, chock full of friendly and helpful people.

To help you get acquainted with our lovely site and get a running start, I have some roleplay important links for you!
This is where you can sign up for the roleplays found in Modern, Scifi, Fantasy, and sometimes Mature. Generally, they will have you post a character sheet in their thread, a new sheet for each roleplay! You can also start signups for a roleplay of your own here.

This is where you can find jump in games, which typically have no sign up thread. You just start posting!

If you need help with anything, please feel free to ask.
Happy playing~

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
Welcome to Iwaku. I'll warn you now, this is a very addictive hobby! I started a couple years ago and it has slowly escalated into my number one pass time! It is basically all about reading and writing at it's core, so you'll be good to go.. That link I'm sure someone posted to Roleplay 101 is very helpful.

If you need help finding a game or have a question about the site, just ask.

Hi there Sapphire, welcome to Iwaku! Looks like you have a few links to go on. As Diana said it's good to see an adult trying something new :D (23 doesn't make me an adult does it? >_>;; ) Most people are happy to help if you ask, so don't be shy and be sure to poke around!
