Welcome to Freedom City: Play by Post!
FC:PbP is a board-based RPG using the Mutants and Masterminds second edition rules (from Green Ronin Publishers), with a number of house rule modifications. The game started running in 2007 and is, as of this writing, in its ninth year. That may seem like a deep dive when it comes to continuity, but new players usually find they can get by just fine without needing to know more than a thumbnail sketch of what came before. The base of Freedom City's history comes from the Freedom City sourcebook, also from Green Ronin.
It is recommended that you find a copy of Mutants and Masterminds 2E and read at least the first eight chapters in order to get a good idea of how to play the game. It can be found online, but the most reliable way to get a copy is from the Mutants and Masterminds website or on Drive-Thru RPG.
The communal nature of gaming is very important on this site, and the best way to become part of the community is through our chat. There's a link to the chat at the top of every page, under the Community menu. You can also access it here. The Chat, like the site itself, maintains a PG-13 rating for language and content, and we ask everyone to keep a friendly and respectful attitude. There are forums all over the internet for people to argue over divisive topics like religion and politics, but this really is not the place. In the chat, players are listed with their usernames in black type, Refs (our intrepid team of game moderators) are in red type, and Admins (tech guru Sorus and site owner AvengerAssembled) are in purple type. They're generally a pretty laid-back bunch, and are happy to help new people.
In the spirit of encouraging player participation and enjoyment, Freedom City Play By Post strives to provide an atmosphere which is LGBTQ-friendly, anti-racist, anti-ableist, woman-friendly and otherwise discrimination and harassment free. If you have questions or find something on the site uncomfortable or problematic, you are welcome to message one of the refs or admins to discuss the issue.
With all that said, welcome to the game! We hope you have a lot of fun.
