A place to discuss roleplaying as a hobby. Here you are free to share personal stories about roleplaying, talk about tabletop systems and other roleplay related topics.
Do NOT post interest checks for roleplays. You may use this forum to discuss and seek advice for roleplays you are planning, but once they have an official interest check, they may no longer be discussed here.
Roleplays that are private and are typically open to only one or two specific players that are invited to the game. Roleplayers are required to get an author's approval before being allowed to join these roleplays.
Roleplays containing settings that are very similar to the real world. These settings still might have some minor fantasy or futuristic elements in them, but they are not the focal point of these roleplays. You can expect this category to be associated with games revolving around slice-of-life, historical fiction, detective dramas and superhero stories.
Roleplays containing settings with more advanced technology and societies than in real life. You can expect roleplays in this category to be associated with science fiction, space travel, cyberpunk, and extraterrestrials.
The depressingness of my self-inserted OCs in my fanfics:
Attack on Titan: Watched her best friend (plus their family) and her own family get eaten by Titans and then her boyfriend beat her up for wanting to join the military, only for him to be eaten himself during the Trost incident.
Blue Exorcist: Sold her soul to Satan to save her sick boyfriend, whom she found out cheated on her for months. After that, she became Satan's servant, and thus, a demon.
Fairy Tail: Exiled from hometown after accused of attacking her boyfriend (who, again, had been cheating on her for months). She came back from Tenrou to find out he, along with her parents were dead.
Pandora Hearts: Has a fatal illness and is technically supposed to be dead, but is kept alive by her contract with her Chain. Probably will die...
Ouran High School Host Club: Mother died. S'all I got.
Sword Art Online: Played SAO with mother and sister, who both died in the game/real life. Woke up to find herself alone.
Tokyo Ghoul: Comes home one day to see her parents being eaten by a ghoul. Somehow makes it out of there alive.
Blood Lad: Both parents died in street fights.
I wish we could tone down people's status updates. I don't really like coming on here and seeing a bunch of status updates from the same person... Like, I appreciate your presence, but please. Why is this not an option?
