Online Roleplaying is an extension of the early roleplaying games of the 60s and 70s. There exist roleplaying communities for nearly every setting and genre imaginable. On paper, online roleplaying is supposed to be a sort of collaborative storytelling in which the players create complex worlds and characters. However, in practice this is rarely the case.
Online Roleplaying first became possible with Roy Trubshaw's creation of MUD (Multi-User Dungeon) in 1978. It is widely believed that Aelyria, created in 1989, is the world's first "play-by-post" roleplaying community. Both MUD and Aelyria have small but dedicated followings even today.
- Most forum roleplayers either are or claim to be pre-teenage girls.
- Fan roleplayers are very protective of their "original characters". (DO NOT STEAL!)
- 99.9% of the threads on /x/ are about roleplaying. I know, it is pathetic.
