I'm not recruiting, advertising, or spamming these boards :D
Just trying to grow an online community I'm part of. RPoverIP,
or Roleplay Enforced Mudding. The system uses generated dice,
a character sheet just like that of the classic WhiteWolf books, and
is run by Storytellers. There aren't random monsters, but detailed
environments in which to set your PC and interact with other PCs, who
are roleplayers and dedicated gamers just like you. If its hard for you to
find a group in your area, I highly suggest trying VistaNights out. There aren't a ton of glompy commands to memorize, and I'll give total instructions on how to connect, make a character, and join in the RP almost instantly.

For people already accustomed to having to roleplay over text online, Connect dune.net port 9666.

First: Download a mud/mush client. I use GMud, but I'm told SimpleMu is excellent as well. You can even use plain old telent (Run:telnet from your start button) to play.

Connect: Connect to dune.net Port: 9666, the command or way to do this is different for the different mud clients, but still simple.

You'll be asked for a character name and password, and like that you're in the game, ready to start making your character. The creation room is usually host to a few other players, and almost always a storyteller to get you started. Just follow their directions and you're good to go.

Apply: Next, you'll have to register at the forums, and read the creation guidelines (There are specific topics for each class) Then, just fill out the little application, write a small history for your character, and then submit. A Storyteller will get right with you with any adjustments or questions, finish filling in your sheet, and boom: You're ready to roleplay with other gamers in the world of darkness. If you have some time on your hands, I highly recommend at least checking it out.

Umm well for one I only posted on the WoD topic, where it applied, not any others, and for another no one's paying me to find more people to roleplay with ;)

My only issue with this is you can do the exact same thing on WoD's official site. What makes yours better?

Small community dedicated to roleplay by the system, open to pretty much any action you're character would make (Vying for Princehood, Raising a lowly Mortal up to be a Childe) and aside from your poses, there's no freeform peeing contests, as everything's by the dice and aided by the staff and Storytellers. Its completely different and far more driven than just post and roll browser RP.

Perhaps you aren't familiar with White Wolf's site. They have the exact same thing you're talking about. Volunteer storytellers who divvy up XP for "official scenes", you store your character sheet on their server, and they have a dice roller everyone can see, you can play any of the monster types if you so choose... I'm not sure what a freeform peeing contest is... but I'm not seeing any advantage to your site over the official WoD site.
