As for where I'm coming from: one of my best friends is NB and likes playing NB characters, so I'll share what I've learned from forming 3 different groups with them, as well as from my current "college group": me, a friend in Iceland, and a friend in New York who actually went to college together, plus two people my NY friend met there (including an NB playing for the first time).
I guess theoretically the three of them could be in the same place sometimes, but in practice we all enjoy playing over Skype without having to put on pants and leave the house.
I don't want to play in a don't ask, don't tell roleplaying campaign.
One of my queer friends is interested in joining a campaign online, and is looking for an inclusive, friendly group of players. I'd love to answer her, but after years of roleplaying irl and online, I still have no idea how I'd accomplish such a feat.I do think, though, that there are definitely plenty of inclusive RPG players out there!In fact, you may already know some who haven't mentioned it, so I suggest exploring that first - see below.Kids and teens simply start their story from an image of their choice and write a scenario or storyline in the description using hashtags like #rp, #roleplay or #openrp.For most involved, role-playing is a simple way to enjoy a common interest.Make sure your child is friends online with only people that you both know and trust.
