Well, think about roleplaying somewhat like writing a novel >.< except you're either contributing to one (as a participant of an RP) collectively with other people... Or perhaps, are "hosting" a narrative of some sort, with others (well, once more) adding their own "pieces" to it o.o they're not always an 100% success, but, they're really cool to pop in I guess o-o
Imagine roleplaying on the board as writing an interactive novel-- with a partner!
