Do you roleplay in chat rooms/IM?

I think this is within the bounds of this board. No one I know who I don't roleplay with on Yahoo! understands why I roleplay online, but not in a game (like WoW or whatever)

I want to know if anyone else roleplays in chat or Instant Message.

    I do quite regularly actually. Though I've come to call it Join Storywriting more than actual roleplaying. Still, some of the best storylines I've had were in IM/mIRC. It's a fun thing to do and if you have a good writing-partner some great stories can result from it, at least in my experience. ^_^

     

    And now to wait for the people who will flame RPers. *smirks*

    Yeah. It's even better when you can write a story that you can post on the internet because your RP partner inspires you. Some of my fanfiction I've written has been inspired by roleplaying.

    I used to when I stopped playing EQ, and I made myself at home in a chatroom for awhile. Although I don't do it anymore, but I do have D&D as my roleplay fix.

    No I don´t role-play in chatrooms. I tried, but can´t do it very well. I need to see the avatar, walk it through a grafical environment, do certain movements with it (like bow, greet) ...

    It´s some way of inspiration for me. I just need the grafics to think myself into the avatar and play it.

    But I also don´t role-play in WoW or any other MMO. Those games don´t have any atmosphere but only a lot of (in my eyes very boring monster slaying). I stoped playing them at all.

    Now I play NWN 2 on a role-playing shard. It´s big fun. Like a role-playing chatroom but with rather good 3D grafics :D. It´s big fun and great role-playing!

    For me, roleplaying in IM or chatroom would be like going to the movies in-costume.  More than likely I'd be the only one doing it and get some funny looks.  Now if you took your LARP or SCA group with you as a band of wild, maraudering vikings to go see Beowulf, then it'd be cool despite the murmurrings.  The point being, if the system is not made for theatre, it just looks very wierd when Hamlet strides through the door.

    MUCKs / MUDs were kind of the in-between.  They had a text environment, but fostered roleplay by having a room description, character descriptions and fantasy names.  Then it makes more sense to be in-character.

    I used to role play in chatrooms. :) It's like a fanfic only there are multiple writers. XD

    I would love to, but sadly I don't know anyone else who enjoys it.
