I’ve been doing role play for about 7 years now, just texting, and any kind really, just because it’s a good distraction. Okay. Now you go, why do you do role play if you do?

I have roleplayed on forums online. It really helped me when I was doing it. I feel like my grammar and vocabulary improved a lot and was better at expressing complex feelings. Also I feel that my ability to read and understand the little differences in words improved a lot. (And I did it because ot was cool and helped me get away from my kind for a while)

I've roleplayed online. Either as my own characters, Marty from Back to the Future, or Captain Phasma from Star Wars. Been doing it off and on for about 5 years. I do it to work on my dialogue because I usually have a hard time nailing down character voices. Also sometimes just for stress relief. Me and my friend write a lot of weird AU scenarios where my Marty and her John Crichton (Farscape) meet a lot.
I never knew where to look to find larping groups but I've considered it because it seemed fun.
