Does anyone do it anymore?

 

I remember the days of user made Yahoo! chat rooms. Role-playing back then was the best (and the worse.) I tried to get back into it, whether it was joining a role-playing forum or trying to find people on WoW. It seems to not be out there anymore.

 

Has any one had better luck?

I'm in-and-out of a Fallout PbP RPG forum which has been around since 2008-2009 and is still going fairly strong.

I put on my wizard hat


First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me-- and there was no one left to speak for me.

I used to play "legend of the greeen dragon" for a few years but I had less and less time once I started college... I think my account got deleted after not having logged on for too long.

I used to roleplay online SO much. I had a notebook full of characters and plot ideas. There was a whole IRC chatroom where we would roleplay all the time. I had a Bleach roleplay, too, that I used to be really into. I had to stop once I got to university, I didn't have time for it anymore. I'm always trying to get back into it, I really loved it and I miss a lot of characters that I came up with. 

 

There's a decent community (when they're not begging for money) called Coloholics. I keep trying to get into it but every time I join a roleplay I only commit to about a week before I disappear again so... I need to be more committed haha. Maybe you might have better luck?

You know what's really fun as well? FOnline, it's basically Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 but online. Pretty cool but insaaaaanely hard to go alone. You will die,  lot.

I RPed for awhile. I enjoyed it but now it's something that doesn't interest me so much, unfortunately.

If I had the time, I would probably do nothing but. I was also a Yahoo Chat crawler back in the day (twelve years ago), and I miss it dearly. I was part of a couple on LiveJournal, but that system just wasn't as good, and I fell out of it.

If I ever become single again, that is the second thing I will do. (The first being playing all the RPGs I haven't been able to in ages.)

What fandoms are you looking for?

I'm not looking for any fandoms in particular. I tried to keep this Role-playing topic as general as possible, so to see what everyone has done/is doing.

 

You can't play rpg's and be single?

No, I can't play RPGs and be attached. If I were single, I'd be playing for like, 14 hours a day.

 

And if you're not looking for any fandoms, what exactly would you be RPing? I genuinely can't imagine a non-fandom-based RP, even if it were just based on a certain universe minus known characters.

I guess I find it easier to make up characters, time eras, and such. It was rare that I RPed an already made character from an anime or whatever. I was huge into drawing my characters plus making up a back story.

 

It's a 'slice of life' role-playing style and there isn't necessarily a plot, but depending on the partner, the story blooms itself.

 

If I had to choose a fandom, I guess I really enjoying RPing in the WoW universe or DND 3.5

 

Those count, right? Haha

That counts! And that blossoming story is what I miss most dearly about RPing. It's absolutely amazing when something happens that no one expected and the characters just take off.
