Why did you start rping?

Recommended Posts

I started rping on Neopets ( O.O ) and I started writing because I love stories. I was already writing my own little books by then (not good ones obv - I was 11) but I was already writing personally. I used to be the person on Neopets who would hit the character limit five times before their part of the story was up... lol. Then I found out about Proboards and the rest was history 😄

I started roleplaying because I had friends who did it.  We used to jump into AOL chatrooms and rp stuff like Buffy. It was all lame one-liner posts, but those were my beginnings!

I love writing so RPing seems inevitable. It started as a way to practice my writing and to express myself through different characters. Then as I gained more experienced, I realised how important it was in helping me learn to shape the plot and character relationships.

I started roleplaying when I was maybe...13? 14? I remember spotting Wolfquest and thinking 'man that looks like it'd be so much fun to play!' Never mind the multiplayer aspect, I just wanted to raise wolf family. You had to wait for your account to be activated before you could play though. I resubmitted like 10 times before finally giving up, I just didn't get a verification email. I started looking for something similar to play and my search took me to Feral Heart.
Now that wasn't a game like I'd been thinking...I was totally lost as to what the heck everyone was doing when I joined the server. Someone explained to me that it was called 'roleplaying' and boy, it was on. I fell fast in love.

13-14 years old on Neopets forums! Cringey days to say the least.

 

EDIT: Was so tired I forgot the WHY part. When I first started, the fact that someone could direct the other half of the story was fun as hell. I didn't know what would happen next!

Because I have had a lot of pain in my past and I needed to have an escape something that would focus me on good things.

I had always wanted to write a novel or something significant, but had simply not complete a project just yet. When I first stumbled upon the idea of RP, I was vaguely aware of the concept of D&D and similar role playing, but this felt like an opportunity to write something, and get some sort of feedback through the replies. In the end, I found that it was actually very entertaining and could create unsuspected stories, and that it was much more entertaining than solo writings.

I started Rping because I wanted a fun outlet to have some fun within the universe of a fandom. I loved writing fanfiction, but there was something fun about actually getting to play out things.

I started rping when I was 10-11 and had just moved to a new town.    I hadn't grown out of playing pretend, but everyone in my age group had (or at least did a really good job of pretending they had).   When I discovered the internet, I somehow stumbled across a wolf game forum and just joined in.

I was an only child and both of my parents were full time working individuals so I often came home and was alone. I would read books a lot, draw, play video games, but I missed a form of social interaction. So I joined a few websites and made friends, but it wasn't until I joined AOL/Yahoo chat rp sites that I started to get really excited because I could create characters and play with other people. And then when I moved to forum posting, I fell in love with writing and eventually wanted to create things which led to me creating my own stories.

 

But yeah, I guess the main reason I started rping was because I was lonely...

Because I played of all things, Neopets and I was really into imaging that I was a pokemon trainer and had pokemon. It ended up sparking a bonfire of passion for writing and roleplay and telling stories which some might call 'Fanfic' but which I interacted with other players and had all that funness of plans changing because you never know what another human being is going to reply with, really.

I started roleplaying because I was a lonely 12-year-old with little else to do, which makes me quite sad looking back! But I still roleplay to this day *because* I have other things to do. RP is a lovely way to take a break from a busy life. 🙂

I started off with actual writing before I ventured into roleplaying. I need more immediate gratification than authoring gives or I get super unmotivated.

I was an outcast as a child. I just was never talkative and I never got to vibe with people. I played games a lot and I wanted to be someone else. So roleplaying came first as a literal childish play, which was then played through dolls, then my old friend from back then and I would make up some scenes from our favorite fandoms and then write about it together. Ahhhh, good times.

 

I continued because I've learned with time and experience that life just sucks at times and you gotta make it better for yourself somehow. This helped my writing skills and I also couldn't stop coming up with all sorts of ideas. Roleplaying is a great hobby and it just keeps me sane. Of course, one needs a good balance in everything in their life.

It's been so long, I don't know what initially made me look into RPing. But I found it to be a nice escape from the stress and anxiety I feel with every day life.
