Forums » Introductions » Hi! I haven't used an RP forum in a million years!

Honestly, if we're being picky, I don't think I've used an RP-specific forum in at least a decade. Kind of crazy. I used to primarily roleplay on pet sites (especially TeriPets, which I don't think anyone is likely to recognize and is long defunct). Now I only really roleplay on Discord with my husband, haha.

Now I'm trying to branch out, because I feel like RP helps my writing so much! And I'm working on a longterm project about my DnD character. Or...well, he's in my husband's DnD setting, which also has more horror elements. It's very cool! That OC is my favorite, but I don't know that I'll RP him here, since he's overpowered by nature, but I'll probably at least talk about him sometimes. He's my favorite guy! :)

Anyway, as for topics I like to RP...I don't know. I did a LOT of fandom RP as a teenager and in my early 20s, but now I'm 25, and I want to get as far away from fandom RP as I can, unless it's something that's freeform like DnD, where my partner and I are utilizing the setting as a skeleton on which to build our story, where it can be more malleable, whatever. I'm also only comfortable doing romantic plots with my husband, and it's really disheartening seeing, like, exclusively romantic RP requests a lot of places.

Other than DnD, I generally am extremely into high fantasy, and not very into low fantasy (except the Fable games and some other exceptions). I am generally entirely put off by current-day settings. I love sci-fi, though! I do find it really intimidating, though, since I'm pretty uneducated on most science stuff that isn't zoology, haha. But I'm really into aliens and stuff. Aliens and elves. And elves that are aliens.

I really want to get back into RPing because I have an unbelievable amount of free time. I'm currently living with in-laws, but when my husband and I can move into our own place, I'll be a housewife. I'm disabled and unemployed now, though. I have two cats that I take care of, too! They're Bengals, so they're handfuls. But I mostly play video games, work on my writing project, RP with my husband, listen to metal, and read. I'm currently reading Hyperion by Dan Simmons, I really like it.

I'm hoping I'll be able to socialize more on this site. I tend to prefer 1x1, but I have no idea what I'm looking for, and I also have no idea what kind of character I'll want to play, so asking for a 1x1 is more like asking for a protracted brainstorming session, and I know not everyone has time for that. So who knows! Maybe I'll try group stuff again, too. I haven't done that in forever.

Anyway, happy to be here! I hope this wasn't that long.

Hey! Welcome to RPR! Fellow DnD player here; would love to hear your about RPG stories/favourite class at some point! And roleplaying is a great way to burn free time; I just joined a week ago myself with that goal! Anywho, glad to see a new face around here! I hope you find many stories and partners worth writing with. :D

Thanks!! :D I'm actually pretty new to DnD in the game sense, although I've been in the "trying to get games together" stage with everybody for the past couple years, haha. My husband DMs and he's mostly free to work on it, but scheduling is just hell with the world being the world. My favorite class is warlock, conceptually! But my primary character that I actually play is a rune knight fighter named Catald. Definitely want to play casters now that I'm less intimidated.

I'd love to hear your stories too! Feel free to DM me any time if you'd like!

Okay, so you may not dig my RP style then as even as a full-grown, and I might as well add, old adult, I still play in fandoms because they are pure love for me, but I can never fault the creative originality of a person willing to write up and develop and an entire world and character from scratch. My hat is off to you!

Also, even if your favorite character is OP, you are still absolutely welcome to play them here. I am telling you we have gods and beasts and beings that are entirely all-powerful about RPR, and most people are pretty good at reigning them in for the sake of a wonderful role-playing experience.

Aside from that, you should also get the opportunity to play as the character you love, so there's that too!

And I gotta add, I also have two adorable little kitties. They are calicos and purebred brats at that!

Anyhoo! Enjoy your free time and your writing. RPR offers a lot of freedom in that, so welcome and I hope you find what you are looking for!

This is awesome to know! I might make my guy a character page, then. :3 I think a lot of it always comes down to the players being able to handle and work around (or utilize) the character's OP-ness. So I'm glad that's welcome here, too!

Welcome to RPR
Hello and welcome! :D
Hello, and welcome aboard! Getting used - or returning - to a different form of RP can take some time to get used to, but the learning curve is part of the fun! :) Myself, I started off with YahooGroups back in the day, then for a period to forum RPs, and more recently PMs and Discord. Everything's a new discovery that makes roleplaying such a cool adventure! ^_^

Really hope you'll find many great plots up your alley on RPR!
