    s a d b o i lookin for bf/gf (Kidding! But also not! But yes, I am! Not?)

    Hey ya’ll, I’ve come to the realization that, all things considered, my RP load ain’t all that heavy! I’m looking to dabble more into the 1x1 world, being mostly a group RPer. I don’t have any specific, fully-formed ideas that I want to pursue, but I do have some general themes that I have a...

    ALWAYS OPEN A Particularly Painful Partner Probe

    The Call of the Wordbinder Hello! I'm Moody, but you could also call me Modwri. I am twenty-nine years old and have spent roughly the past dozen years independently studying writing and roleplaying, though I've been roleplaying for sixteen years. I live at home with my mother and my roomie...

    Beyond the Umbra: An Interest Check

    It began on November 6th, 2140. That day- a day that would forever live in infamy- the planet Earth came under deliberate and sudden attack from alien invaders beyond the Solar System and the Milky Way. Indeed, we were unawares of their presence for hundreds of years, and in one moment, we...

    Starlit Void (IC)

    Signups & Info OOC Thread Scarsi sector The habitual goings on are interrupted when The Ship drops out of FTL with a rumble and shake, screeching and groaning with its rusty joints. The turbulence is nothing too bad, sure a few loose objects got slung around and anyone standing must have...

    Starlit Void (Signups & Info)

    OOC Thread IC Thread Background Noise(Lore) It's been centuries since the first Space-Man looked out of his window and saw the Blue Planet against the black backdrop of space. It's been ages since the worlds were terraformed to support life, since humanity took to the Stars to carve...

    Firefly-esque Space Opera

    And when I say Firefly-esque I lean more on the side of 'quirky characters in a banged up ship' rather than a straight up Sci-Fi Western. The focus of the story is the Crew and their illegal/quasi-illegal activities as they fulfill their personal goals, settle vendettas and deal with each...

    idk what im doing.

    SEARCH THREAD Hi. I'm Mango. Heads up. First things first: i never have a schedule. Therefore, I cannot provide you a 'time I respond the most', or anything like that. I can promise one post about every week, with exceptions as things are always coming up with me, but I am also capable of...

    Titanomachy

    Premise: 3000 C.E. A great and terrible war has broken out between Earth, Luna, and Mars. The Solar System is on the verge of total destruction as the three factions battle for supremacy. The United Nations has comfortably ruled mankind's homeworld for centuries. However, it only grows more...

    These Benighted Stars

    I am Enso Wylam, of Tombwatch. Don't let the name fool you - it's a nice enough city, all things considered. They say the Tomb was where the Magi of old times made planetfall here, that once it was a city of wonder and majesty that towered to the upper atmo. Now it's a barrow under the red...

    Starfighter-esque Space Adventure M/M RP?

    So I've been craving an M/M space adventure RP, loosely inspired by HamletMachine's Starfighter comic (check it out at starfightercomic.com, NSFW!). I don't often do M/M, but I'm super inspired with the new chapter having arrived in the mail today, and I want to get something going! Below I've...

    An Oaahian Search for RPs

    Hello friend! I'm Ooah, a long time roleplayer with a difficult muse. I've been writing rp posts for over a decade and am now proud to have a relatively pain-free writing style after many trials and errors. Of the slower but heftier kind (I rarely post anything faster than once a day if I go for...

    Hourglass [Turtle&Spidey]

Lorkpar's often attracted the rougher crowds, after all. Mel rolled his head back and forth, stretching out some of the tension and waved for...

    Inkarnate & You

    I’ve sort of been doing this “writing with people on the internet” thing for way too long to be proud of. That’s not a jab at this shared hobby of ours, but just a weird sort of way I look at how I’ve sunk a lot of time into practically the best hobby ever. Anyway, I don't have much of a...
