  • Welcome back, Iwaku! While we are still working on the site to get it back into shape, we've come back online so you can get back to doing what you love. Check out this announcement for more details.

Welcome to the Roleplay Extras forum! This is a storage area for character indexes, lore threads, and bonus content related to your existing roleplays. It's especially useful for extra threads with restricted posting or for content related to one-on-one roleplays.

Only one Signup/Out of Character thread per roleplay is allowed in Group RP Signups, but you can post as many as you want in this section. Don't post your active signup threads here if you want to attract players!

If your roleplay involves smutty scenes, please post the thread instead in the Redstar Extras (if you are over 18) or the Bluestar Extras (if you are 17 or under). You can also post your extra threads there if you're only interested in playing with these age groups. Roleplaying sexual content with members outside of your age group is not allowed. For info on why we have these sections, please see this Resource.

Be sure to link all your threads to your main signup/OOC thread and to each other for easy reference.

If you are not a member of a roleplay, please do not post in the threads here without permission. If you are looking for roleplays, check the Signups forum.

Threads in this forum are only archived if your account is inactive, banned, or deleted. If your roleplay is no longer active, you can use the Thread Moderation Request form to ask a mod to archive your extra threads. You can also use this form to request deletion of a post or locking/unlocking a thread.

Thread prefixes are colorful tags displayed at the beginning of a thread title. They can be chosen when creating a thread and more than one can be applied. These prefixes show what a thread is for. You can also click on them from the thread listing to display all the threads with that prefix within that forum. Each section has its own prefixes, so make sure to check the info sticky to make sure you're picking the right prefixes and to learn what they mean!

This prefix is applied to threads containing lore or extra content not included in your signup/OOC thread.


If you have a short story or other creative content related to an existing roleplay, post it here with this prefix!

If you have a separate character roster for your roleplay, use this prefix.

If you have an OOC thread for your private roleplay or wish to have an informal chatter thread separate from your signup thread, this is the prefix for you.

Threads with this prefix are for one-on-one players or for group games that are invitation-only.

Worldbuilding threads are just that: places to develop the setting for a roleplay.

Tags can be added to threads and used to help find and filter threads related to certain genres, themes, and more. You'll find the Tags line right under the text box when creating a thread. Existing threads can also be tagged; just above the first post you should see a line that starts with "Tags:" and has an edit button you can press.

You can find the full list of available content tags in this Resource, or ask for a new tag to be added in this thread in the Help Desk.
