      The website that many roleplayers swear by, Avidgamers, is essentially a forum-formatted website, offering anyone to join one of the countless kinds of roleplaying communities thriving. Avidgamers is a fairly massive site, formatted in a bunch of individual sections, and so it can be fairly easy to get lost. Still, if you go to the forums, then I’m sure you’ll be able to find the community advertisements.

      Now, when I say roleplaying, I do not

      mean the kind where you have a zillion differant dice and argue about how your dark sword +8 can pierce the Holy Chainmail +6, and then inevitably get into a big argument and stuff character profile sheets down each other’s throats. No, this is pure literary roleplaying, in which you write about what your character says, does, thinks, etc.

      Almost like writing a story with more than one author involved. For example, one person would ...

      • post something like: Bob walked into the room and sat on a chair, looking for something to do.

        And then someone else would post: Greg ran into the room and mauled Bob with a chainsaw, laughing like a maniac as blood splurted everywhere. Ha! Ha! Just kidding boys and girls, because saying something like that is called ‘Powerplaying’ and if you do that, people will hate you.

        No, Greg would likely walk into the room,

        sit down, and (gasp) ALSO be looking for something to do. And then Bob would look at Greg, say hi.

        Greg does ditto and the story goes on. Now, it doesn’t HAVE to be that dull.

        There are hundreds of community, each with their own theme. Some are Fantasy, some are Science Fiction, some are Harry Potter (these days, that book deserves its own genre.

        ) So try it out! Go to ag2. avidgamers.

        com and join in on all the fun! Or ask for directions, up to you.
