Two years ago today, the RP repository officially opened its doors for early beta testers to start using the site. Back then, the site didn't have forums or private messages. Groups were still just a twinkle in my eye. There were five templates -- today we have over 100.

The site has evolved in wild and unexpected ways since that first day. The most unexpected has been how overwhelmingly friendly, positive and supportive the community has become. Here's to many more years of growing and playing with all of you.

Thank you for making the RP Repository possible.

See if you can spot...

This video series was created by Darth_Angelus as a gift to the entire community for our second birthday. It has been months of gruelingly hard work. Be certain to thank him!

Today's Templates

With the wicked spirit vanquished, it feels like the whole world is brighter!

Though these tiny pixelated badges may be small, like medals of honor pinned to navy blues, they represent the gratitude of an entire country. Or at least an entire RP community!

reel.gifUnto Darth_Angelus, for bringing us the Epic Week video series, for working long hours for months on end just to bring delight to your friends, I bestow the Magic Film Reel of Epicness, for performing over and above the call of duty when there was indeed no obligation at all. With this one of a kind magic item firmly affixed to your profile, let it be known now and for all time that you are a truly talented, dedicated and all around superlative Director.

Your talent in seamlessly blending expressive brush strokes with photographic elements, and synthesizing all these disparate elements into a single work of art and practical design strikes fear into the hearts of all your rivals.

Let's hear it for these brave adventurers, who made Epic Week truly Epic!

Epic Members

The RP Repository is a small site, created and maintained by a single programmer -- but in the last two years it has grown to be large, complex, and resource intensive to maintain. It's those few who choose to support the site by purchasing extra perks that make it possible to keep the site up and free for everyone to enjoy.

Epic members: We salute you. Thank you for making it possible for all of us to keep playing.

This week, Epic Memberships have been 10% off. Take advantage of it and unlock all the neat perks given to Epic Members as a thank you before it goes away!

Yay happy birthday number two! Thanks to all of you who made this site of awesome.


April 25, 2012

Aah!! This is such a surprise! Thank you Kim-beans! ;) For everything, of course!

And thanks to EVERYONE for their kind words. If it weren't for all of you, I wouldn't have had the drive to create the Elements templates. The thought of your excitement and happiness was what kept me going!


April 25, 2012

Yup, it's really and truly only me programming. Sometimes it makes me go "Whoa!" as well too. ;)

I haven't had that much time these days to come online, much less RP, and I missed the celebrations. It's been a long time since I've RPed properly. But I recognize a great community and great people when I see them, and I just wanted to thank all of you, Kim, Darth, Heimdall, and all the people who might not be in the spotlight, but have made RPR what it is. I vaguely recall RPR when it was starting out, and I thought it a fantastic idea. Well, it's no longer an idea anymore. And are you really the only coder, Kim? Wow. I don't know what else to say but wow.

I think this might actually be my first post on RPR. (Sad, I know.) Hopefully not the last. :D

Happy birthday, RPR!

Sound the trumpets for our victorious heroes! And do cut the birthday cake. :3

Awesome video series, Darth-and-Kim! I'm sure it took forever amounts of work, and it really shows. And the Elements series of templates really is fantastic, Heimdall.


April 24, 2012

Thank you everyone. This week has been AMAZING. Your letters and comments and how active everyone has been throughout the site this week keeps making me tear up. We've blasted past so many of our old records in so many areas this week. It's been truly breathtaking.

Here's to us! :D


April 24, 2012

This is so splendiferous! Happy birthday to us all! Onwards to glory, victory and another successful year of being awesome!


April 24, 2012

*_* That was amazing!!!! I loved it! :D


April 24, 2012

What a magnificent conclusion to top off an already glorious avalanche of wonderment! I think we should have a round of internet-applause for Kim, Darth and Heimdall for their incredible work and their sheer levels of raw splendiferousness. This was truly a week of enough epicitude to do the dear RPR justice.

Two years old, already! Oh, they grow up so fast! *sniff*


April 24, 2012

D'aw. Oh well, good videos none the less.


April 24, 2012

What a wonderful ending to a glorious saga that has brought us all closer! *clings tankard full of... milk against someone else's*

This week truly has been epic! Happy Birthday, RPR!

Yay happy birthday RPR. I wish you another two years and more of wonderful characters and RP. Thank you very much Kim and Darth for the wonderful week of contests and templates, and of course the video :D. I've been impressed over and over again with all the things you've given us.

Oh, wow! This is wonderful.


Thank you so much Kim, Heimdall, and Darth!!

The videos were GREAT! It was absolutely fantastic! :D
The bug wanting to make an account kinda made me giggle because I remember that we had some buggy account issues here and there before. x3

But everything is just SO AWESOME! The templates look fantastic and everything is just sooooo cooool!!

Your hair piece. Oh my goodness is it beautiful! I wish I had hair like yours. (it's first thing in the morning and I'm surprised I can type at all, much less type good, descriptive things, please forgive me)


April 24, 2012

So I just watched them all again, in order because they're all out now. Truly epic. :D


April 24, 2012
