The Role Playing Villages can make you some new friends around here even outside the RP section.
A lot of people, and I mean a lot just joined the get the banners on top of their avatar just to make it seem more interesting and cool.
One of the three things can happen from then on.
1. You actually start liking Role Playing.
2. You get kicked out for inactivity.
3. You simply stop, since you don't think its worth it for just a banner hanging on top of your avatar.
Role playing in itself is fun, since most of the games you play (Naruto, DBZ, Pokemon etc..) are RP games. They're fun right?
That's why people RP, just without the fancy graphics, and gimmicks.
