Go ahead laugh and giggle when you see the word roleplaying and think of a bunch of 'nerds' huddled around a card table in their parents basement, playing D&D. I've had so many people assume that I roleplay tabletop games. I would try it in the future, but the roleplaying that I take part in 99% of the time is forum roleplaying. Post-by-post. Whatever you wish to call it. I've been pinging around on other sites for the past 5-6 years. My adventures first began when I was an admin on a website (yes, I am a little kid and I rather enjoy it hehe.) But seriously... A whole lot of the members on the site roleplayed. I had no idea what it was, so I asked. I wrinkled my nose at the idea of playing pretend via writing. Until, that day where curiosity got the better of me or someone harassed me into trying it lol. I tried it and absolutely fell in love with it. I haven't stopped since and that was almost six years ago. Today I own my own roleplaying forum and have so many awesome members there. It's amazing how many new friends you can make and how much talent you see. Especially when its from members younger then yourself that outwrite you like there is no tomorrow. But its cool to see that so many people share my same interests and we can all write together. Whether its real life or fantasy; I enjoy every single moment of it.
So I guess my purpose for making this post was to see if any of my fellow HF members enjoy roleplaying too. I don't know what kind of advertising is allowed here, but if you are interested in roleplaying with me, you are more then welcome to pm me here on the site or post something here.
Either way, happy posting! <3
I love roleplaying!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!
Oh man, roleplaying has been my favorite thing to do online since I started doing it. It's such a great way to escape from reality, even just for a little while. :)
As long as you announce that you're role playing and not trying to create a fake persona to fool people, I don't see a problem with it.
When you 'role play' without telling others it's called lying. Deliberately making up stories to fool others into believing you're someone you're not is very bad manners.
I honestly don't get the appeal. I outgrew fantasizing about being a princess/warrior/elven maiden many years ago. When you're actually living in the real world, fantasy lives pale in comparison.
Actually, I think what you are thinking of is considered trolling. Roleplaying on a forum is where you create a character and a story and play the role of said character. It's not pretending to be a person you are not. Its a character in a story that you play along with other members in said roleplay :P
I used too, and then I got bored of all the stipulations people would try and put in place to get their own kicks out of being rude.
And there are only so many different ways you can describe hair. Flowing softly, glowing in the dim light like spun sugar on a hot summers day blah blah... Made my brain tired ;)
I don't 'get it', but a lot of people don't 'get' horses either, so who am I to say LARP or even online role playing is wrong or stupid? If it's something you enjoy, have at it.
I found it really helped with my creative writing sections in my English studies. It can be great fun, and finding someone to banter back and forth with is awesome.
I fell foul of it, RPd a couple of years and the person turned out to be a troll, I broke off all contact. Need to be able to separate the two!
And you're right. Not everyone likes the same things as everyone else out there in the world. It's just about respecting that fact that everyone is different :)
