Role Playing

So I’ve heard a lot in the FL community about role playing and I was wondering about what it was. Is it just playing with other people through the game, or is there more to it?

It’s mostly playing pretend with each other. It’s as fun today as it was when we were five.

(OK, let me be more serious: rp is when you act as if you were your player character. Some of us do it in some threads in the forums, some of us write pieces about our characters, some send in-character notes to other players in game and so on. It’s basically a way to have fun while you wait for your actions to refresh, if you ask me, and it extends the FL experience.)
