Male roleplayer. I love writing and roleplaying. I started roleplaying in 2007 when I came across it by chance. After a while the writing gets better, the plots become deeper and you eventually create several characters for various plots which take place in various time periods. I've been mostly roleplaying on Yahoo Messenger - when it was still available. I've been told about the Golden Era of roleplay by many who have been far longer than I have. During 2007 and on, roleplays were still available and for me it was good. So if that was good enough, then what was the Golden Era of RP like? When Yahoo Messenger was shut down by Yahoo, things got dry when it came to roleplaying. I had no idea where to find new roleplayers. The ones I had were always too busy, with many abandoning roleplaying. It was disappointing. Searching for roleplaying for a while since then, not truly finding a clear community where new roleplayers could be found. I was never the type who enjoyed forum-based roleplays. I also always preferred 1x1 roleplays. With Yahoo Messenger no longer available, new sources to roleplay had to be found. Trillian seems like a suitable messenger service which allows for roleplays - however, it has no chat rooms so the problem remained on where to find roleplayers. I tried out two online communities. However, they were VERY limited - they only expect individuals to roleplay on their community network, and one of them only allows for individuals to roleplay in the community-created world. That was no fun. You had to learn tons of lore and history before you can start roleplaying. And what if you didn't like something? It didn't make it fun. Roleplaying is about two individuals deciding on a plot which both would enjoy, which had benefits for both, and where both parties had fun roleplaying. So those two communities were abandoned. I needed to find more flexible communities where I could find roleplayers who were skilled, who had the talent for writing, who enjoyed deep plots - which did not revolve around sex and romance, and who were not into gore and bordering into strong dark themes - individuals who would find some of the plots I have enjoyable, which they would pick one which suited them the most, and play out in such a plot. So with luck I found this community and hopefully I can find some good, flexible, open-minded individuals who would enjoy roleplaying in some fun plots. Specifically, seeking female roleplayers who enjoy long-term plots, who enjoy action, drama, mystery, adventure, and more.

Hello! Welcome to RPG, I'm Barney_fife, been role-playing since about 2004. There's lots of roleplay content to immerse yourself here, and hundreds of different roleplay communities to join.

There's also a rich player-base to seek a one on one role-play with, but many might not be comfortable revealing their gender to you, and it doesn't really have any bearing on the role-play. People can play whatever characters as well as their talents allow, so I would suggest not having a player's gender be a caveat to whether or not you want to roleplay with them. It can also open up the possibility of sexual rp/cybering, and can generally look bad. I know your introduction says that's not what you're looking for, but that's the impression that statement can make.

There's PM roleplays, and there's places like the Multiverse. There's both chat, and forum style roleplay there, and many times all you have to do is approach a player and ask. =) You also have the option of PM roleplays, and making your own roleplay universe, but make sure to avoid just calling it 1x1 and call it say "Talon and Player 2's Universe" Or something.

If you need anything, I'd be happy to assist you.
Nip it in the bud.
