>Where should you start?
Well, that all depends on what genre, post length, level of serious, and other quirks and topics you're looking for, in an RP canon. RP has canons from short post, and random, to long posts filled with science, and magic, and other things that I often get lost while reading! You have old mainstays, and new, innovative choices that are (Mostly) always looking for new members to join up, and have fun with. However, a lot do have sign up processes, and applications, but nine times out of ten, they're easy as pie to fill out, and an officer of the canon will usually happily help out with it.
