Welcome to Text Adventures! This page is for advertising text-based role-playing games. They can best be described as collaborative stories, where each player controls specific characters within the story. (See Role Playing for Dummies for more information on what exactly role-playing is.)

If you have created a new Role-play, just add a link to it in the comments below Tell us a little bit about it, too.
If you have not found the desired amount of players before your role-play has been bumped into the older comments, feel free to re-advertise.
Please do not clutter the comments with chatter. We do not want role-plays to be prematurely bumped off the page. Excessive chit chat will be deleted.

If you have a text game that is based on an idea other than role-playing, please add it to Games instead.

2006-01-20 [SilverFire]: :) Thanks, [Lerune]

2006-01-20 [Lerune]: You are welcome. ^^

2006-01-21 [iippo]: *haunts* :P Question too: is this list for roleplays only that are accepting chars?

2006-01-21 [SilverFire]: Eh, pretty much, though that doesn't mean they have to be new adventures o.< And uh, after a while, there tend to be a lot of RPs on the list that don't need anymore characters, before, that made it hard to find RPs, but hopefully the archives page will help sort that problem out.

2006-01-31 [iippo]: All the rp-guilds are fantasy o.O (ok there's WSR for sci-fi but that's beside my point). Isn't there any that would just be everything-rp-guild?

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: Well, make one yourself if you aren't happy? >__>

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: I'd join it! I don't really do fantasy >_>

2006-01-31 [iippo]: I was actually just wondering if there was one in a odd manner... I suspose we might as well just join un-fantasy rps randomly where they exist without the hassle of a guild.

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: Well, that's what I'd do. I do suppose a sci-fi-ish type of guild could be fun too. O.o; But if we started making guilds for every genre... there'd be quite a few in the end. I mean, fantasy could be devided into so many sub-guilds just as sci-fi could.

2006-01-31 [SilverFire]: And many guilds means many dead guilds, because there isn't enough interest... or, there is... but it's too spread out over all the different guilds for any of them to make it.

2006-01-31 [iippo]: Which is why it'd be interesting to have everything-guild.

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: But... isn;t the general text adventure wiki an everything guild in general? >__>

2006-01-31 [iippo]: :D Good point.

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: Hehehe ^__^;; -pets iippo- I love you ;D~

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: You know, I do wonder what would happen if a guild dedicated to RPing starters was created... would anyone dare to join? XD

2006-01-31 [SilverFire]: *fuzzles* explainereth?

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: wow i meant "a guild dedicated to RPing for starters" xD! You know, newbs. >__>;

2006-01-31 [SilverFire]: I thought so... but I wanted to clarify, :) And, probably not. :P I've seen a couple of clubs/guilds/whatevers where people could list themselves as either 'novice' or 'experienced' in loads of different RP genres... if people didn't consider themselves 'experienced'... they just didn't bother putting their name down. :P

2006-01-31 [iippo]: There is something like a newb-game somewhere around. I think it hasn't started because they seem to have more GMs than actual players XD

2006-01-31 [SilverFire]: :) Doesn't surprise me, when I joined my first RP, I conveniently neglected to mention I hadn't Rped before. No one noticed :) But I did see a few around for 'newbies'... I avoided those. o.<

2006-01-31 [iippo]: Hey, I did that too! Guess what was my first one: Hoggy. XD

2006-01-31 [SilverFire]: :P I honestly wouldn't have guessed so ^^;;

2006-01-31 [iippo]: It still makes me gigglish. I just completely n00b-stumbled through there, and now I'm nearly one of the mods O.o;

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: -shakes head- Well either way, I was justw odnering. ;P And my first ET RP was eyes of evil... which I ended pu taking over when the owner left. I had a good RP background before even joining ET though. o.o; And now,w hen I look at my old RPs I shudder... xD

2006-01-31 [SilverFire]: *doesn't look back at old RPs* :P

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: I rarely do. ;P

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: My old RPGs were pretty okay... my very first RPG character, however, was NOT. It was HORRIBLE. My eyes still bleed. >_>

2006-01-31 [SilverFire]: ...did it... have a gender? :O

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: Of course not! :O

2006-01-31 [SilverFire]: :P Of course, how silly of me.

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: But don't doubt me, I do have characters of all and/or none genders. ;)

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: I've actually never seen you play a male yet veltz, ;P

2006-01-31 [iippo]: I think that would be a valuabe hint for all of us to tell if Vel is in fact Ville or Venla... >_> But then again, I only play male-chars so that could also mean squat all. It's just easier to think with a penis.

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: My pirate crew has five males and one female (who isn't the captain) :P And I play a PC male in the X-Men game as well as Xavier and Beast... so yeah. >_> Krhm. But androgynes will always be closer to my heart! XD

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: Actually Ke'rodre is the only actual female I've played unless you count in a few short moments of Jean Grey and Storm. Yeah. Babble.

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: -chuckles- I forgot about RoLP. ;P I play males mroe than females and Veltz introduced me to androgynes. xD

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: Everyone should be introduced to gender diversity! XD

2006-01-31 [iippo]: Androgynes schmandrogynes. :P

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: xD nice, now Veltz will go on an ultimate justice rampge for androgynes >__>;

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: Well I can if you want to XD

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: Plz no.

2006-01-31 [Veltzeh]: You know that that's a great way to say "YES."? :P

2006-01-31 [Lunnie]: __> plz no? xD

2006-02-01 [xido]: O.O Those who love adrogyny as much as I do surround thee????  You must all see Wraeththu, a trilogy by Storm Constantine, a UK writer... I love genderless characters. It makes wonderful intrigue and many strange looks from other players and characters... yay!  I love hermaphrodites!  ;P We now have a RPG too. x.op  :)

2006-02-01 [Veltzeh]: Yay [xido]! :D

2006-02-01 [Veltzeh]: Damn. That was the single lamest reaction to the best thing anyone ever plugged at me >_>

2006-02-01 [Lunnie]: Smooth veltz. ;P

2006-02-02 [iippo]: If you'd make your androgyne fat, I might make a little "bwee" -sound. Go on. Dooo eeeeet!

2006-02-02 [Veltzeh]: Do you mean "so fat it has trouble moving" or "so fat that it just doesn't look good"? ;)

2006-02-02 [iippo]: All of the above :D

2006-02-02 [Veltzeh]: :O I don't like making them incapacitated :P Otherwise I don't really have issue with the fat, other than I don't like drawing it because I like doing muscles more. Which leads to all my females being mistaken for males...

2006-02-02 [Veltzeh]: My excuse generator is in good shape today!

2006-02-02 [iippo]: I like the idea of incapacitated character. They can go all emo "boohoo I'm blind and deaf and have just one limb" :D

2006-02-02 [Veltzeh]: I just learned the hard way that people don't like angst. My winged character got its wings cut off. >_>

2006-02-02 [iippo]: >_> I tend to despise the sort of grrrl powah! -chars (even if they aren't girls)

2006-02-02 [Veltzeh]: Me too, I think. >_>

2006-02-02 [iippo]: Just despise all characters that aren't mine. :P

2006-02-02 [Veltzeh]: Nice going XD

2006-02-02 [Lunnie]: ;D I cut off Veltz' char's wings ^__^!! ;D!

2006-02-02 [SilverFire]: :/ MY winged char also had her ewings cut off, she just got pissy over it, not angsty. I like characters incapacitated from teh start - then, they're good to play, and you don't have to do the angsting, 'cos they've dealt w/ it already. :)

2006-02-02 [Lunnie]: eh well it wasn't my situation to deal with xD

2006-02-03 [iippo]: Silvie has a point; a blind person isn't angsty. Most blind people smile all the time :O

2006-02-03 [Kai Crewger]: until something fleshy accidentally gets in the way of their white stick. Then they'll turn into a stick-wielding maniac. (at least, that's what one kid at our school does)

2006-02-05 [Veltzeh]: I fixed the page... some genius erased it.

2006-02-05 [iippo]: Did you report them?

2006-02-05 [Veltzeh]: Nah, I usually don't unless it's clearly a mischief or not the first offense... that almost looked like an accident or something. >_>

2006-02-05 [iippo]: *bothers to see past version* That's a very strange edit I must admit. Like... she thought it's her house? Ah well, I can't remember my wiki-blunders anymore so I can't compare.

2006-02-05 [SilverFire]: It's a very strange accident, it's not exactly as if this is the first wiki page you reach when you click the wiki button at the top, :/ And why the hell someone would think they could edit this into their own presentation/diary after seeing the contents is well... I dunno, exactly how stupid do you have to be to make that mistake?

2006-02-05 [Veltzeh]: Well, obviously it's an idiot, I'm just too lazy to report at this moment ;)

2006-02-06 [xido]: lol  :P  poor idiot... you guys poke so much fun.... man, can't a stupid person get a little credit these days? sheesh...  x.op

2006-02-06 [Veltzeh]: Well, they didn't get reported (as far as I know) and we got our fun! Win-win situation. XD

2006-02-06 [xido]: x.op

2006-02-06 [xido]: HUGE FAVOR TO ASK EVERYONE: Please check out the Elftown Water Fountain Design Contest for me, and see if you have any ideas, comments, or questions about it, so that I can have a sort of FAQ about it before it is opened.... when I have three other people's approval for the layout and format of the contest, it will be opened soon after... Thank you, and please msg me with these comments, etc. I would prefer to have them in my mailbox instead of on this page, or even that one.... send your words straight to [xido]....... awesome, thank you immensely.

2006-03-25 [newt___x]: ummm..hello..

2006-04-26 [xido]: heya

2006-04-28 [Kay-chan]: If you have put up a roleplaying game but it has ended, do you just make a note on it or do you remove it altogether?

2006-04-29 [SilverFire]: I'd remove it altogether.

2006-04-29 [Kay-chan]: M'kay, done.

2006-05-09 [xido]: Well, I would not remove the info from the pages or anything, but instead just make a big note on it that it is no longer active, and remove it from any advertising page like this one, where it could look like a still-recruiting page. That is my own opinion on the matter. I like archived information on past pages to stay available for later reference.

2006-05-09 [xido]: Hey, Silver, soon enough I may have you change up our link, to become the Wiki Fiction Roleplay, which is actually the whole comprised fantasy/scifi/modern/historical fiction wiki genres into a single Guild. That is, after we have a good badge for the newly-comprised guild.  ;)

2006-05-09 [SilverFire]: *Was already haunting that page* :P Ty for the heads-up.

2006-06-11 [NOOOPE]: Ok, here to advertise my first wiki rp in three years! <img:> This Cocaine Crazy oraginized crime rp. For advanced/very mature rpers.

2006-06-18 [Misteira]: Oh cool. So this is a wiki...

2006-06-18 [xido]: Hey Silvie, please have fun choosing a badge for the Wiki Fiction Roleplay from the WFR Artwork and Images page to post here.... I don't care which one you use, but the official WFR Guild tag is now created.  ;)

2006-08-06 [Mataza_71191]: [please for the love of god look at]Death Note RP one enen knows it exists...

2006-09-29 [Tekkon KinKreet]: Please check out The Accidents Rp- Skilled rpist only please.

2007-01-07 [NOOOPE]: Hello again. I'm introducing LRPU, Lazy Role Players Unite. It's where people gather who rp, tojust causlly rp with other people, usually with just one other player, with no real plot lines, nothing complicated. Just throwing characters together and seeing how they fair. See LRPU INTRO for more.

2007-01-18 [Rock Thine World]: Please take a look at Fenrir! Brand new RP!

2007-02-04 [SilverFire]: Please don't spam your link. Advertising is cool, spamming, not so cool. :/

2007-02-19 [xido]: <i>[the-roleplay-initiative@wiki]</i>
Please include the italics. They are an important identifying feature of this page, and I will be making banner based on that italicized title. Thank you, Silvie.

2007-03-06 [Nebka]: Check it out: Zodiac Wars
Now accepting Players!

2007-04-21 [NOOOPE]: I suggest you go and visit Eat the Pure. If you don't... you may just be up all night crying.

2007-05-06 [Sturmi]: join the Realms of Lemire Arena!!!!! it's one of the best games around the town. Check it out!

2007-06-09 [Wednesday]: hi all, The journey to ardor needs two new special players , plz message me if you want to be one of them, i need to get you started now!

2007-08-15 [LadyMoon]: [Burningmist] is no longer welcome on this page. If he adds or removes any text ever again, please report him to the guards.

- Guards

2007-08-15 [Veltzeh]: Oh, I've already reported him when he first did that.

2007-08-24 [Earoluim]: Is there anyone who can point me in the direction of any Dungeons and Dragons Rp's ?

2007-09-13 [Rock Thine World]: You'll definitely want to check out The Four Circles! Brand new, massive fantasy RP!

2008-02-19 [Aeolynn]: Weren't we supposed to get a badge for participating in the official roleplaying tournament?

2008-02-19 [Veltzeh]: Well, it's not over yet. I figure the badges will be given once it's finished.

2008-02-19 [Aeolynn]: Ah, that makes sense, thanks Veltzeh ^^

2008-02-19 [SilverFire]: hmmm, I'm starting to think that it might be better to scrap the Text Adventures A-F, etc pges, and just go back to adding them on here, newest at the bottom. When they were added a lot more people were adding RPs than are now. :P

2008-05-15 [Sagacious Turkey]: Sounds good to me...

2008-10-31 [Rook.]: Try the torture rp. 'Tis a lot of fun! We need fresh faces and fresh skills.

2008-11-06 [SilverFire]: Bethlem is starting up again. Come join. :O

2008-12-11 [NOOOPE]: - Rooms -, looking for awesome, mature rpers. It'll be sick nasty

2008-12-20 [Elwyne]: Well, I suppose I could put up some of my own rp's, they're almost at a standstill though. I'm thinking of starting them over... again

2008-12-20 [SilverFire]: Maybe you could try restarting just one, so you can focus all your attention on it?

2008-12-20 [Elwyne]: Maybe, it's an idea...

2008-12-25 [Aeolynn]: I had sent this to iippo but I don't think she has gotten around to reading it... I sent it from my old dead house [Zephire]

[iippo] I was wondering if you could do me a favor... this is an old account of mine (I am [Aeolynn]) and I was hoping you could take off the badge from this house and put it on my other account? I never get on these anymore and I consider them... well, baggage.

If you could do that I would really REALLY love you.


I'd really like that role-playing badge on my real house :[

2008-12-25 [iippo]: I haven't gotten round to it, sorry, it's been dead busy. Just have patience, please :3

2008-12-25 [Aeolynn]: I'm patient lol I just wanted to get someone else to do it cause you are busy! ^^ *hugs*

2008-12-25 [SilverFire]: We're all busy. :P

2008-12-25 [Aeolynn]: well here *huggles* to everyone :]

2008-12-26 [Earoluim]: * Smiles gently and bows my head *

2008-12-26 [Elwyne]: ooh! I love huggles! (also distributes hugs)

2008-12-26 [Earoluim]: * Smiles and hugs [Elwyne]*

2008-12-26 [Elwyne]: oh yay!

2008-12-26 [Earoluim]: * Smiles and nods * SO how are you ?

2008-12-27 [Elwyne]: I'm... ok. Not great but ok. I got some new books for Christmas at least. Still trying to get some people to rp with me, most of my wiki's are going so slow they're almost dead. How're you?

2008-12-28 [Earoluim]: alive lol

2008-12-29 [Elwyne]: that sounds like the kind of answer my mother would give. lol! Either that or "bah humbug" when somebody says merry christmas... by the way MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! (ok a little late sorry)

2009-01-19 [Hedda]: Isn't RPG wiki something to link to from here? But first, I think that needs some serious cleaning up though, so that all inactive ones are sorted out.

2009-01-23 [twitchboy]: well, a nice page for guild and wiki links strictly for rp. I like it

2009-01-23 [SilverFire]: I don't really see the point in having two pages that list exactly the same thing - I always thought it would make things harder to find, since some people would add their links to one wiki and some people would add it to the other...

2009-01-23 [Hedda]: I think there should be only one page. Just remove all links to the less used page, move all interesting content to the other one, and write a link to the used page on the deleted page.

I can't do it though, because I have no clue how these pages are organized and it's not clear to me where to go if I want to role-play.

2009-02-15 [Aeolynn]: I still don't have my rper's badge... I mentioned it right after x-mas.

2009-02-15 [SilverFire]: Now you have it, and can stop complaining. :)

2009-02-15 [Aeolynn]: I was reminding :] but thank you ^^

2009-02-15 [SilverFire]: I was teasing. :P

2009-02-15 [Aeolynn]: :3

2009-02-15 [NOOOPE]: Yeah! Sexiness has been achieved!

2009-02-16 [Crankychangeling]: When you click on the "Rooms" wiki it goes to an empty page. Might want to fix that. :) 

2009-02-16 [NOOOPE]: DAMN!

2009-03-04 [Chimes]: Yo! Two things:
1) What is the font for 'Other RPs'? I am in love with it.
2) Cans I submit a Guild to this wikiiii? :] HaRPy!, being the Guild. We only just set it up though... so one of the pages is in need of filling. XD

2009-03-04 [NOOOPE]: 1) It's called shoplifter
2) Why the hell not! (feel free to kick me if I'm wrong)

2009-03-04 [Chimes]: 1) Excellent. Thank you. I will be getting that tomorrow. XD
2. YAY!

2009-03-04 [SilverFire]: Naw, M! is right. Add away. :)

2009-03-04 [Rook.]: So you submit rp pages here...? or on another page...?

2009-03-04 [SilverFire]: Here. :)

2009-03-04 [Rook.]: alright. I have two, actualy... *blushes*
One is The Club.
and the other is The Lighthouse
both are open and both are in need of characters and fresh minds ^^

2009-03-04 [SilverFire]: So... post them already? :P

2009-03-04 [Rook.]: where...?

2009-03-04 [SilverFire]: ...On this page?

2009-03-04 [Rook.]: okay.... Just a second.

2009-03-04 [Rook.]: dang it..I have to re-do it... stupid internet... Just another oment... :S My apologies... :S

2009-03-04 [Rook.]: woot! its up. sorry for the length of time it took, amigos :S

2009-03-27 [BobbyRay]: Wow, I can't believe how much this place has changed in the past 5 years. What happened to all the RP's? I see the archives, but are these few really the only active ones left?

2009-03-27 [Rook.]: The Lighthouse is very very alive.

2009-03-27 [SilverFire]: There are certainly fewer active RPs than there were then, but another part of the problem is that a lot of people making new RPs just don't list them here.

2009-03-27 [Rook.]: Well, I have quite a few rps, but I jsut dont want ot seem liek an eccentric and list them all.... like Never-ever land, we just need someone to play the lead guy.... etc....

2009-03-27 [SilverFire]: The whole point of this page is to list your RPs. X_x It... baffles me that you wouldn't. No one on ET is gonna set there going 'omfg! Look how many RPs this person has added to the RP LIST, gawd what a freak, lulz.'

2009-03-27 [Rook.]: oh, they would :P XD

2009-03-27 [Rook.]: okay, I'll add them... ^^ but I warns you.... there are a LOT

2009-03-27 [BobbyRay]: Now that's more like it. Thanks for throwing those up there [Rook.]! Abbey Dawning looks interesting.

2009-03-27 [Rook.]: ^^ no problem ^^ anytime you need a new rp, come see me ^^ I'll hook ya up.

2009-05-21 [Jadala*(Once upon a moment)]: I have a couple RPs that dies off a while back. I might put them up here to see if anyone decides to start playing them again....I miss playing them.

2009-05-24 [Sedition]: if any one is interested in a little busy-work to do on the side while bored,i could use some -reliable- help on my Motherland rp/game.the folks that were supposed to deliver on their promises didnt,and as a result production has grinded to a halt.

2009-05-25 [Elwyne]: well... I like rping and anybody who needs an extra character can invite me. I'm not very picky and I'm willing to try even unusual rp's. As in my usual is fantasy stuff but I have done others. And I'm fairly reliable unless something unexpected pops up. I'm usually on at least once a day.

2009-05-26 [~Valkyrie~]: Might I suggest Akallabeth then, [Elwyne]? Or anyone for that matter. We could especially use Dark Army characters. Though Alliance characters are always welcome too.

2009-05-28 [Elwyne]: I'll look then

2009-05-28 [~Valkyrie~]: Cool :)

2009-06-19 [gilmour]: Hey guys and gals, I have made a new zombie rpg and I hope for it to be a huge success so come check it out!! Hell World

2009-06-19 [NOOOPE]: Pop it up there!

2009-06-19 [gilmour]: Come on people! I need someone to join!!

2009-06-19 [NOOOPE]: Simmer down. It may take weeks to get a full cast.

2009-06-19 [gilmour]: Well, I don't need a full cast right away. Just at least one other person to get the story rolling

2009-06-30 [NOOOPE]: *Points* Apeiron

2009-07-08 [Aeolynn]: Is there a way we can make a page where we can list a character to see if anyone wants to roleplay with them? *ish hopeful*

2009-07-09 [NOOOPE]: There was.... I mean, I used to have LRPU!. There was some discussion in the crew forums about making one, but nothing happened. I could revamp lrpu, it was designed for that exact purpose.

2009-07-09 [Aeolynn]: LRPU could add a character focus page, instead of the whole list maybe M?

2009-07-09 [NOOOPE]: I could totally redo it, with suggestions and stuff.

You could always note that you have a new character in the comments as well...

2009-07-09 [NOOOPE]: Ok, made this. It's pretty bare bones. Anyone who would like to help improve its look or effectiveness, feel free to comment and stuff
