“Real life thus far had taught me that in the adult world, fate was chaotic and uncertain. Guidelines for success were arbitrary. But in the world of D&D, at least there was a rule book… By role-playing, we were in control, and our characters… wandered through places of danger, their destinies, ostensibly, within our grasp.”
― Ethan Gilsdorf
Not all role play follows such strict and extensive rules and Dungeons & Dragons, of course. Some, like the RP I commonly engage in, has very few rules at all the main one being: Do Not Be Yourself. Beyond that, it’s sort of an organic thing that occurs wherever creative minds and bored people gather online. This, then, is one of those places. Welcome. And please, leave your reality at the door.
