    www.aelyria.com is the biggest message board based RPG. It is not very good anymore due to Juan (the owner) being a complete douchebag and retconning all the awesomeness out of the setting in order to make way for his extreme faggotry.

    But hey, if you want a freeform RPG and you can put up with some serious ego-wankery from the current crop of GMs and the owner it's pretty reasonable.

    Hahahaha... I can't believe someone remembers this. That's how I got my start Roleplaying. Shitty to some degree, but you gotta start somewhere.

    Oh man, I remember the shitty characters I had back in those days. Werewolf ninja samurai blood mage, Starfighter Pilot with a Lightsaber that only stuns people (lol nonlethal it's totally original now), and what was literally the Megna Centipede from Megaman X2.

    I won't even go into the shitstorm that was my character named "Twisted Soul"

    Oh man, I can remember my characters now. Thinking back, a lot of them were pretty furry, maybe that's one of the reasons why I hate them now?

    A cat-boy who wields a massive sword (lol hurp a derp) and constantly uses shitty literary devices to describe how apathetic he is to everything, then in practice ending up like just another moralfagbutstillcool character. Then my "guy who's like a ninja but wears red all the time", used mostly punches, I think it was. Then there was like, my yifftastic piece of crap; some guy who can transform into a cat, but if he wants to he can only transform part way, essentially becoming anthro. I remember a roleplay he was in involved a little girl chasing him around as a cat, only to have a wtf moment when he turned into a furry.

    Yiffing did not follow, thankfully.


    In the end, he got to a point where this other Mary Sue character was trying to be meek about a hottub or some shit, because hot tubs were the caviar when it comes to shitty roleplays comprised of people not versed in sex. "no, no hot tube here, *blushes*", and shit like that. She then added me and got access to my profile and found out I was like, 8. So she's all like "EIGHT YEARS OLD!?!@?!@#?@#$%%^^&!!?!?!? I CANT HABEEB IT."

    Vampire hideout

    I played a moogle who was a moogle, because I was an unimaginative little fuck. He was the owner and operator of the place, which was something of a bar shrouded in eternal darkness... he didn't fight, for various reasons, but was spry enough to boogie his way out of any situation he found himself in.

    God damn, and I thought I was done thinking of this.

    Also hung out in a little known corner of the place known as Mogs Realm. But I'd be beyond amazed if anyone recognized THAT one.

    It'd be hard to find a "text based RPG" online without any more information than that, but MUD/MUSH/MOOs are pretty fun. I played around with one, Lusternia (no, despite the horribly porn-ish name, there is no sexing) and it was fairly fun.

    I killed the shit out of a bunch of goblins or kobolds or something for dorfs. Punched them to death.

    Used this wolf race that had a totally awesome innate regeneration. Made awesome monks. RIP AND TEAR AND RIP AND TEAR.

    Can't recall why I stopped playing, should go back to sometime. Maybe.

    Memories that I have sometimes tried to repress.

    AOL chatrooms.

    Vampire Tavern. Not Vampire Tavern 2! Everyone knew that number 1 was the place to be.. mmm.. remember mashing the Enter Room button, hoping someone would leave so you could slip in (most likely to lurk)
    Home of the lurker-couch, with free marshmallows for the right people. And Almost everyone "steals a bottle of bludwyne from the bar and stalks to a dark corner to look into the tavern, waiting for prey"*

    Place was one big corner.. some kinda fractal stuff there.

    *no, I Was NOT one of those pathetic kids who spent the whole time talking about how they got drunk. But I Did hang out with Shadow, Duvessa, Nirae and even Eris, sometimes. Neon hung around too, that nutter.

    Good times. Good times. Still have ties with people I met there, now, lets see, eight-ish years later.

    Oh.. and Vampire Lake, of course.. which was, I dont know, near the tavern?

    I used to RP on some sort of No-Themed chatroom that someone installed on their pages using the ANGELFIRE WYSIWIG editor.

    There was a huge mish mash of character types. People from Street Fighter, High Fantasy, Sci Fi. Slayers was just new on TV at the time so lots of people were slayers characters. There was a family of furries too.

    At the time I was 13 and the coolest thing to me at the time was Dragon Ball. So that was what my character was. Oddly enough, this was my first experience with cybering other people and it started with what was known as the furry "Den Mother" at the time.

    I used to do that one Dueling thing AOL had set up... I think it was just called Arena.

    Played a Rogue type, who fought with a Triple Bladed Dagger (technically a trident, but I flavored it as a dagger), named MoS. Made myself fall for some elvish girl, and then dueled her boyfriend to the death after hours in a private duel. Of course everyone came, and even one of the official GMs officiated the fight.

    I lost (it was close... he was like 3 levels above me) and in PMs I told him to go ahead and kill me. I took my death like a man, stared him in the eyes, and told him to kill me because the bitch wasn't worth it.

    However, for the weeks leading up to this, I had been talking with the Evil necromancer type guildies. We planned a whole ressurection thing out, and I changed my Screen Name from "MstrOfShadows to "SrvtOfShadows", and from then on was a mindless undead shell of my former self, and would only come into the room when one of my masters was present.

    Good times.

    "Temple of Divinity." Been going since the late nineties, slight hentai theme though it's pretty much the only place on the muck not based entirely on sex.

    Or if you like dragons, there's a "sun club" where dragons hang out and talk about their hoards and stuff. Kind of a guilty pleasure.

    After those, which are somewhat serious with a light erotic theme, you have the blatantly erotic Prison area and the High School area.

    Did the usual rp stuff like just hanging out in taverns and trying to play bartender whenever I could. Got in fights, dealt with asshole powertrip meta-gamers who somehow found their way to the internet.

    No game system based combat, it's a MUCK, not a MUD. You have to pose all your attacks.

    They have people strictly watching you for powergaming, though, so if you show up and try to join the guards, you're going to have your ass handed to you by the captains in your first spar, no questions asked. Expect to be treated as a level one character when you first join, unless you join as a BBEG or a merc.

    No, I think everything got put into perspective for me on the whole Rhy'Din thing when our guild mistress got into an RP situation that got totally out of control, involving a demigod or something raping her, accelerating time to make her have the baby moments later, and then eating or killing it. Never saw her online after that. It was then that I realized everyone was FUCKING INSANE.

    Now I play WoW. Lesson was not learned.

    Essentially the reason you'd avoid a bad DM.
    Iron Realms is the company, they contract out ownerships of their code, to ambitious rp'ers with a decent amount of money (a couple dozen grand, several years ago). Then those rpers, not businessmen or anything, run everything (There are a few rules) however they'd like.

    You would think that maybe it would be a perfect paradise of rp trickledown or whatever, but instead you get pedodens and furfaglands. And people paying to be a part of them.

    I have nothing against furry, but this is the full, blown out type of furry fagdom.

    Like all things, they seemed better in the 'older' days.

    A reasonably mature player will keep his character in check, and generally, characters which are PLAYED well will prosper over time. Most of the time, you get back what you invest in it.

    I made a few sues, I recall, but also a few characters with genuinely good depth to them.

    Maximilian Ergheiz, a wizard in training with zero skill in anything but spatial manipulation. He carried his house around with him in a small box that wasn't actually there. I later realized he had a Schrodinger's Box kinda thing goin' on. I was 12 when I made him.

    Then there was Erik The Red, viking mcOdinson.

    And oh god, Michael, a time traveling machine-man sent into orbit around earth. He lands 8,000 years later, finds time control shit, a flaming sword, and angel wings, and pew pew pews all around fighting another friend's sue who was the undying king of vampires/satan.

    I used to be active in all sorts of text RP, but it turned me into a huge snob toward people that try to make their own characters. (Including myself. My first characters were fucking terrible.) Also, I know someone locally who spoke very, very fondly of Rhy Din even though I was never there. Evidently people would occasionally have text-macro wars to see who had the most badass-sounding scripts.

    I met a lot of cool people this way. And many, many more not cool people. I wouldn't have passed it up for anything though, those were cool times. I still talk to a lot of those folks. Hell, some of them still roleplay, but I haven't made a new character for jack in years. The really kiddie anime roleplayers only annoyed me when I was, oh, 14, but now they just make me not want to go anywhere near strange MU*s or chat rooms. Also, furry roleplayers are the fucking worst. I met a grand total of maybe three that weren't stupid jackoffs with repulsively uninteresting characters and terrible spelling and roleplaying skills.

    I'd imagine the reason most of you are embarrassed is because you probably sucked too back in those days. Guess what? It probably made you better, and you probably shouldn't have stopped if you did.

    Back about eight, ten years ago, Dragon Ball MUDs were fucking everywhere. You could roll up a character, have battles with random people for XP, etc. These were MMOs for people that either didn't like or couldn't afford Everquest and Ultima Online. After the dawn of Adult Swim, Cowboy Bebop and Inuyasha got a few decent sized MU*s too but as far as I know, few if any survive to this day.

    You know what else used to have a fucking TON of MU*s? Pokemon. And this was when there were only 151 of the fuckers. Now that the craze came and went I'd bet there aren't nearly as many, but most text roleplay happens on forums now anyway.

    I like to think a lot of the people who said they "quit" have simply moved on to other expressions of the same, distancing themselves from their past but not forgetting it.

    ...But then, who am I kidding? We here in /tg/ are the same people who denounce furfaggotry on one hand, and then include Sergals and whatever else in the Unified Setting. Logical inconsistency is the Mr. Bubble we bathe in each and every evening.

    I like to think I grew a lot in my years (and fuck I mean YEARS) of AOL freeform. It's kinda interesting, when you think about it... here we are, surrounding ourselves with rules, with our Dungeons & Dragons and our White Wolf and so on, and somehow thinking it raises us above the common morass. But when it all comes down to it, if you were decent and the other people were decent (granted, lowered expectations since we ALL sucked back then; I'll freely admit I did my fair share of shitty nonsense and wankery), some really damn good roleplaying could come out of this freeform (or even pseudo-freeform, see: sparring and guilds) stuff, all without anything but 2d20 to set us apart from simple collaborative storytelling.

    It's something to think about, next time you pick up those dice. We had stories back then too. Have your stories grown as you did, or have they just been propped up by character sheets full of numbers?

    i played the same character in those for the longest, 8th grade through senior year, an elven cleric who hated the undead and served the godess of fetility by performing marriages, namings of children and births(the last of which was never rp'd but the others were). Nothing really stood out but a hair full of colored beads and a mace that detected the undead. I remember screwing around with people in the vampire rooms about how they were abominations to nature, and basically just talking zombies. That characters was fun as hell, meet some really cool people. He ended up married to a gold dragon who ended up being this really cool older women i met a few times, although we don't talk any more she was very interesting and just a generally nice person. Made up for the sheer amount of Dick cocks i ran into.

    I'll be honest with you, I still do freeform online, and it's probably the best roleplaying I've ever had. The local D&D crews are made up of unsavory neckbeards and just aren't fun at all to play with. If I'm going to fritter away hours and hours playing pretend, at least I can do it from the comfort of my telnet terminal where the only body odor I have to worry about is my own and some jackass half-stoned rules lawyer isn't trying to boss me around. Guess what else? You can't just log off of your roleplaying group. Either you stay and tough it out or you're the flake. You fucked up the game, and you never get to play with the obese fifteen year old metalheads ever again.

    I don't know what all of your are talking about with this AOL stuff, but I got my start in RPing with a brief stint in some HTML-based chatroom before taking up residence on MSNChat before MSN when "Lulz, we want money; wtf why nobody chat no more?" and proceeded to close down their chat, annihilating one of the greatest hubs of chat RP on the net at the time.

    I then wandered the net for a while before finding Oasiz which has it's own MSNChat clone and about eight billion vampire/bdsm/slave RPs, three or four teaparty fantasy RPs. (Things with no action where everyone just sits around drinking tea and boiled goose.) Used to be a decent Harry Potter RP where shit got done and blowed up, but it died at some point.

    I played so many different characters at different points, but the psycho werewolf bitch was my main.

    My problem with that is how hard it is to avoid the disturbing, creepy sexual element there. I mean, you get horny just by looking at somebodies face.

    Go idle somewhere unsecure for a reasonable length of time and you'll probably have been raped by the time you get back.

    Unlike everyone else, I didn't hang out in AOL RP rooms or whatever. Most of my young RP was done on the SWG message board's RP section and on a thread in Bethesda's "Lore" section before the forums got reorganized and a fan-fiction subsection was added for RPers and Fan Fiction writers so we didn't clog up the lore forum.

    I *was* fucking terrible at first. But I got better and still keep in touch with most of the folks I played with, and most of them were pretty good and we had good organization so it worked pretty well.

    It was a good learning experience and led to me getting more into RPing. Helped kick start my love of RPGs and motivate me to fix my spelling/grammar.

    Also was fun, which is the important part.

    I used to roleplay in Yahoo chat's A&E all the time. I was horrible at it, though. I don't think ever won a single fight. But, I had a lot of friends, so it was fun.

    And, yeah, I sat in a lot of dark secluded tavern corners.

    You actually REMEMBER Pyromid or however I'd spelled his name? Crazy madness.

    Also of note, Rune Eldin sounds REALLY familiar. Startlingly so. Now I'm positive I hung out in Mogs Realm, but now I'm not so sure as who- it could have been Pyro, and it could have been Red, the aforementioned chainsaw/revolver guy with masochistic blood magic.

    Jesus fuck dude. You and me both.
    I used to rp a completely normal human hitman who never drank and always sat at the bar. My favorite pastime and the time? Turning down anyone who wanted to cyber with me, on the basis that as a sociopath he had no interest in sex or relationships. Eventually met a girl in a group I rp'd with, seven years almost eight years later we're still together. And "irl" even. God we were faggots.

    I first found "roleplaying chat" on some obscure chat program called Pow-wow. There was truth and dare and pole dancing and i was too shy to "pretend along with them." I believe I was 13 at the time.

    Fast forward one year and I'm deep in to AOL chat. Rhydin galore. I cannot fully recall the exact process, but AOL chat almost made me a fully fledged furry. Never have so many trite and mary sue catboy characters been created before as in these, the horrid years of free-form chat RPG.

    If I went to a bar every night and actually talked to people, it would still probably take me years to match the amount of wasted time I spent emulating this in make-believe in places like the Sylvermoon tavern. Rhydin was bad, Ayanee (Yahoo A&E) was worse.

    I STILL have various chat logs of the various catgirls and elven lasses i've cybered. The only solace I have is that some of them may have actually been under-aged girls at the time of their writing (And hey, i was no older than 16 so it's all legal and good. Woot).

    I actually met someone I cybered with IRL. Her sister's school had a trip out here to Hawaii and we met up. It was everything my derisive pessimistic mind had thought it up to be: She was fat, uninteresting, somewhat annoying in her attempts to be flirty... I drove her around Oahu and she fell asleep in my damn car. Way to enjoy your vacation.

    Free form text rpg is only good for cybering or emo-book worm types. I was elated when I found companions later in highschool and college who roleplayed with rules behind it. AD&D, though not perfect, is still better than the "playing guns as a child, bang you're dead, no i'm not dead, I SHOT YOU FIRST!" style of fighting in chatrooms.

    God, Rhy'Din was awful. All the decent RPers were sex-RPers, and at ten-eleven years old, and fucking eight, that shit just wasn't interesting yet. Later on, at eleven-ten fucking years ago now-it was interesting, but I was clueless. Besides-I was fucking eight. I wasn't any good myself.

    I refused to fight, at all, ever. I'd ignore you first. You could either let the guy steamroller you or he'd whine about modding. Never failed. If you didn't let him hit every time and didn't let him win, you were modding.

    my first experiences roleplaying was in Half life Deathmatch when I was like 11 or something.

    Then I moved onto NEOPETS.

    I was incredibly shitty.

    My first character was a Sonic the Hedgehog OC (I never played the games before, it's just that everyone else refused to RP anything besides sonic)

    my second one? a warcraft troll. this was before wow, so it was sorta acceptable to like warcraft. I couldn't type in a jamaican accent, though.

    Generally on Furcadia (no, I wasn't a furfag. during my furcadian times i had no idea what a furry was, just we had anthromorphic avatars and that was it), I frequented an area that most of the hardcore furfags avoided. Most of the people there weren't furfags at all - just your typical online tavern roleplayer. The various quasigods that inhabited the most infamous tavern varied from rogue seraphim (six-winged angels with demi-deity powers who no longer have to act nice because they're ROGUE) to ebony horrors (melee-orientated liches with adamantium skeletons) to demon princes.

    I'll never forget my early days, when I was still perfecting the art of being an elitist dick. I think I remember playing a rip-off of one of the IWD2 villians - some sort of demon. Anyway, some far more literate guy wandered in, playing a stereotypical farmer. I was bored, so decided to start a barfight and tried to kill him. After all, demon versus farmer, I should win, right?
    Since it was freeform, he had all of the right to block each and every one of my attacks, interrupt me while i was magicking and so on and so forth. Eventually, since we were evenly matched, I gave up and my royal demon left in a huff, defeated by a bearded, middle-aged man with a straw hat for armour and a rake for his weapon.

    I remember roleplaying in a few sonic the hedgehog rps. I usually tried to avoid those trying to play characters from the games or cartoons. I think I got into a game set in some different part of the planet or something.

    And then I lost internet connection for years.

    Wait... WAIT. I think I remember a message board system. 'Inside the web' or some shit. Free to make boards. I went to a few. Good times. And then, ITW went belly-up, as many internet companies of the time seemed to do.

    I started out in...the Lycos chatrooms, we called it Lycosia or some faggot shit.

    When that place was shut down by Lycos pretty much going out of business, there was a mass exodus to the AT&T chat rooms, Attone.

    I was a furry then, playing talking wolves and such. Later on I was playing such silly things as chaos angels, retarded werefoxes, and lesbian uber-psions...

    Fuckin aye, I loved AOL chats. I never really got into the fantasy medival stuff, I stuck to the 'house party/pool party' RP chats where you basically just lie about who you are and try to act cool enough to talk to the babes. I managed to find one girl and we became internet boyfriend and girlfriend.. Till I caught the bitch in a vampire chat making out with someone. Dumped the bitch. Also, this was in '98 when I was 10. I always lied about my age though.

    When I was around 9 or 10, I used to role play as a Magikarp in some Pokemon MUCK. It was awesome because it was full of Mewtwos, Mews, legendary pokemon and third level evolutions, but never EVER did I see another user roleplaying as Magikarp. Everyone wanted to be uber cool 1337 /w e-cred. I took the opposite path.

    After a while, I managed to weasel my way into using Hyper Beam without pissing off the administrators (they liked me a lot for some reason). It made for some interesting matches.

    I had an e-girlfriend who was 35.

    We cybered regularly even though she was married and knew I was 15. We got together once, and fucked. Then her husband came home and broke my ribs with a fucking piece of wood he had behind the door or some shit.

    Then he found out how old I was. Shit was SO cash. Funnily enough, I never felt like talking to her again after I fucked her.
