I haven't seen one, but if not, there should be one. I swear there is one, if not, why not?



I think it would be good to have one so those could have a creative outlet.

Sounds like something there'd be groups for. Idk if you can search groups but if you can maybe look there?

Wasn't going to answer since I honestly don't know but sorry for the vague response lol.

Would that technically fall under forum games?

Not sure, I thought forum games was just for those wacky count to 9000 billion and what you say the person below you before and stuff like that.

I'm not totally sure though.

From what I have seen any dedicated RP-space exists only in groups. I feel like a forum for it would just turn into a mess, so perhaps it's best to limit it to groups where more control can be exerted over the participants, etc.

I know what you guys are thinking too... but even Spider-Man likes to RP every now and then...

*rolls die*

My decipher script check in the forum games rules indicates that a properly designed RP game wouldn't violate the rules, but my subsequent wisdom check indicates that putting an RP there would pose a substantial risk for disruption. A group would be the better course.

Ohhhhhhh, I get you now. That would definitely have to be in a closed, private group or conveyed via PMs. CR won't be having any of that in the open.

Doesn't have to be sexual RP. I figured it would be for the best to at least try and get the RP out of Gen Chat.

I've moved this over to Advice, Info, Recommendations because it's a request for Info.

Once upon a time RP did sometimes take place in the Forum Games forum. Or even in forums more generally before there was a separate Forum Games forum. There had been a specific section about role plays in the Game Thread Rules (I just looked and there actually is still one line that refers to putting "RP" in the title of a role play thread), but that section got removed as irrelevant because 1) Nobody had done RP there in a very long time and 2) RP threads pretty much conflict with the rule "Remember that Forum Games involve everyone" since only a few people can participate in a role play scenario. (I think a free-for-all RP would be absolute madness that would end badly quickly ) I've seen someone try to start a RP in Forum Games just a couple of times since I've been a mod and they've received hardly any response at all--never enough to even get the RP off the ground.

These days RPs tend to take place within Groups. Maybe someone who is in a group that features role play and is open to new members could speak up here.

ETA:

My apologies. It took me longer to reply than expected. Sorry for the lag between move and notice.
