Hello! I came across this site via google and was thrilled beyond words to find a place where fellow authors can gather and share their ingenuity. -_-' To my prolonged disappointment, I've found -- well, nothing. There are so many different levels of brilliance, but notta one happens to be accepting. Then, if I do finally find something that could work, there hasn't been a post for two years! It seems everyone around has formed their cliques and there is no room left for the newbies! (Not that I am judging! All the more power to you!) I was posting this in hopes that there are other people out there that may be experiencing my same dilemma. Literally three days spent scoping out different role-play forums, sites and chats -- Nothing! I don't know if I am just not putting out the right stuff or what. If there is anyone out there open for some kind of collaborative RP project, please let me know; I want in!

Fare the Well All of the Creative Cloth! =D

New roleplays are made everyday to replace the dying ones. If you look hard enough you'll find one.

And this is where I shameless plug for my own roleplay.

Roleplayers Wanted Ad

It is a collaborative project, and currently accepting. As I say, if you like what you see, don't hesitate. And if you don't like what you see, trust me there are a lot out there. The Interest Checks is a good place to scope out other ideas, or put up your own ideas for reception. Don't be disheartened.
Like a stranger on a grate, or a skylark, or a taper, flying ever upward and knowing of love's satiety. Our dreams beyond the Sun and into the expanse of Night doth sound a quiet hymn.

Hello!
I have only been around for 24 hours really, and I am finding that I am in the predicament as you. Though I have poked an interest in a couple of threads, just waiting to see if they are interested back!

I had a nosy around OOC as I feel it's hard to find a roleplay that's either open to new players or active when combing through all the ones listed in the RP tab. Maybe that might be a good start for you too??

(Vindicated- I think one of them was yours actually! Haha, what a wee coincidence!)

i felt the same when i first looked around fore the last week, but i found help just by posting in the forum's and going into the chat menu, from there i'm now in touch with a guy who i am going to look at joiningh his rp hopefully, so yeh, i agree it is a bit confusing and just looking for rp's are hard, but these seem to be the way to go, go into the chat rooms, use the forums to get a hold of people who are looking for players etc :)

Trust me, you're not alone. I haven't roleplayed in years, but the bug's bitten me again and I'm anxious to get back at it. Unfortunately, I was hoping this site would be a little more intuitive and, well, open rather than exclusive. I can't seem to find an open game at the level of writing I'm comfortable with (2-3 paragraphs per post) and I'm getting a little intimidated and frustrated.

Here's hoping my desire to roleplay outlasts my impatience/frustration.

I'm relatively new too, and Started a scenario that I am about to throw open on the players wanted forum. The first time I tried I got a message saying I couldn't post links yet as I haven't posted enough. Maybe I wasn't where I thought I was, or maybe I did it wrong, but I got frustrated as it threw away everything I had typed in the post.

Essentially my RP is for mature players, it is tagged as adult, mainly because it will have discussions of characters that will change gender during the course of the adventure. I am running this as an experiment to see how well a small group of Transgenders can interact with others who are not. In case anyone is interested in checking it out my RP is titled "From Whence We Came". It will be a heroic adventure (I have a small homage to Indiana Jones, got inspiration for parts of the story from those movies, but the thing is entirely my own creation and warped imagination.
