Hello all! I'm here to find a new home for my current D&D group. We currently do a lot of our RP out-of-session in the Roll20 forums, but I'm not happy with the features and limitations of Roll20, so I'm reaching out to find a new place for us.

This forum seems like it fits the bill perfectly and I'm looking forward to acquainting myself. I'm going to begin diving in, but if anyone would like to help me out I have some newb questions:

- How do I start a private forum for my players?
- Will I be able to receive email notifications when new posts are made on a forum I'm subscribed to?
- Is it possible to embed dice rolls in posts?

I'm sure I'll think of more questions but I don't want to be a nuisance, so I'm going to try to see if the answers are posted somewhere... I'm sure they are... I'll start looking =)

@davetronred Welcome to the guild, fellow Roll20 user!

1) By private forum, there isn't truly a way for something to be private unless you create a private message thread, which allows up to 5 people to post in it. However, if you don't care for people following along and reading the RP, you can simply post a thread and mark it as full, which will show that the RP is not accepting players at the time.

2) Sadly, email notifications are not yet a thing. They used to be on the older version of the guild, but since the reboot, they have yet to be added.

3) Yes, you can embed rolls. All you need to do is copy the roll's url and link it with the following command: [url=Url Link Here]Roll number or whatever you want to type here[/url]. Alternatively, you don't have to do the fancy url stuff and simply just copy and paste the link in your post, but I think it looks neater the other way.

Welcome to the Guild, @davetronred. There are tons of D&D nerds hanging around this place so you shouldn't have a problem finding players if needed.
