• Welcome to RPG Initiative a Community for All Roleplayers!

    Here at The Initiative, everyone is welcome. Every writing style is valued and there is room for everyone to voice their opinion. It does not matter what medium you use to roleplay, in the end we are all roleplayers who share the passion of writing. The Initiative is a place where everyone can feel safe to be who they are, to have an opinion and where we respect others and their opinions.

    What we offer:

    • Roleplay Directory - We have a robust roleplay directory that includes:
      • Common advertising links available right from the directory listing.
      • A spot for every type of roleplay category.
      • Site Updates available in your listing.
      • Comments straight in your listing.
    • Playby (Faceclaim) Directory - Finding a playby made easy. Narrow your search by traits that you're looking for in your character representation or contribute new ones.
    • Guides - From managing roleplays to how to code these guides will help you in roleplay and real life.
    • Character Exchanges - You can request someone pick up your character in exchange for you to pick up one of theirs.
    • Writing Partners - Where you can find new Roleplay partners to play with.
    • Challenges - Make your own contests to challenge other members or join into staff run contacts and get your site featured on our community index or as a spotlight at the top of the site!

    If you are looking for an RP partner and not a specific site please use our Writing Partner Search Directory.

    Here is where you can offer up a specific character that you would like to seek an RP that fits them. This, unlike the Find an RPG forum, is meant for a character specifically to be adopted/offered a site and Find an RPG is meant for general roleplay searches.


    If you are looking for an RP partner and not a site for a specific character please use our Writing Partner Search Directory.

    This is the place to post requests for plots and characters related to your own character(s). If the character is no meant for your character and meant for general site plots please post in the canon lists forum, if the plot is for another member please encourage them to join but please use their character information in the form.


    If you are looking for an RP partner and not a specific character for a site you are already involved on please use our Writing Partner Search Directory.
