Our group has different roleplaying styles and capabilities. We feature the following roleplaying styles:
1) Literate forum posting: We have a forum specifically for literate play-by-post roleplay. Members will provide paragraph long descriptions of what their character is doing and will wait for their turn to reply.
2) Script roleplays: In our group we tend to favor this style because it allows quick responses. This form uses script speech where actions are framed in asterisks ( *insert action here.* ) and speech is not in quotation marks. Script roleplays in our group is found in "Gallery Roleplays" where people roleplay via comment post replies and in the chatroom.
3) Special "Action Roleplays": Our group also has a special feature that allows "action roleplays." This is a similar concept to the Dungeons and Dragons board game play style. In the chatroom a moderator acts as a "gamemaster" and rolls dice to determine if each member's actions fail or succeed. Members will post their action via action script when it is their turn, the moderator rolls a dice and tells them the outcome. This ranges from attack hits, misses, or fails to simply trying to climb down a mountain without falling on their face. It is the most popular form of roleplay in this group because you absolutely don't know what will happen next and anything can and will happen. (Oh my!)
Those who are into more "literate" play styles will probably shy away from our group because we accept all people of any play style and script roleplays are the most popular forms. We also have a "anything goes" kind of theme (one of our members got shot and bled rainbows while trick or treating... o.o) so, it's a bundle of laughs for the casual and creative member.
Everyone's roleplay styles are different depending on groups. A lot of groups are very strict, only allow literate roleplays, and sometimes have admission tests to see if you can write good enough for their group.
We don't. We are open to everyone and value creativity over literacy. We realize that English isn't always someone's primary language so there are often spelling and grammar mistakes. So, if you want to meet and roleplay with very sweet and creative individuals despite the literacy barrier, then we are definitely worth looking into.
