* ''Roleplay/WorldWarIII'' is another multiverse setting spread across different forums, however, there is a mainline universe. It plays very differently every game session, as players vote new rules systems and changes, though it often includes Risk-style playing of different nations. The rules of the WW3 postulate that the only rule is that when the Earth is destroyed by some cataclysmic event, the universe where Earth survives is the home universe, and play resumes on that universe. Rounds (Chapters) of the game shake up the rules (More like quests). It currently is on the third incarnation.
* [[http://www.narutorp.net/ Engi No Jutsu]] Is a vaguely Naruto roleplaying board set 100 years after the events of the manga. Many villages have independent forums, communities and stories.

* [[http://coloholics.ca/ Coloholics Anonymous]] is a large play by post RP forum where the roleplays are divided into massive RP forum worlds separated by genres such as Anime, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Nation-Building, and Modern and Miscellaneous. The name "Coloholic" comes from "Colosseum-oholic", meaning people who are fans of roleplaying.
* [[http://s4.zetaboards.com/A_New_Dawn/index/ A New Dawn]] is a forum with an entire section devoted to RP'ing, although the rest of the site is a regular forum, mostly of friends. It has a SpaceOpera subsetting called [[http://s4.zetaboards.com/A_New_Dawn/topic/8043760/1/ Beyond the Stars]] that borrows liberally from ''Franchise/MassEffect''.
* [[http://www.ageofintrigue.com/board/ Age of Intrigue]] is an historical RPG set in Restoration England, specifically 1676, at the Court of King Charles II, the Merry Monarch. The roleplay is for 18+ only, but so long as one is in that age range adult themes can be avoided per member request.
* [[http://www.ajjegames.com: AJJE Games]] AJJE Games is a role-playing community offering a wide range of genres, ranging from Sword & Sorcery to Star Wars and Stargate, as well as member-created sims.
* [[http://www.ongoingworlds.com.com/ Ongoing Worlds]] is a community of roleplaying games in a wide range of genres, many of them bespoke.
* [[http://www.disneyworldofwar.proboards.com Disney World of War]] is an RPG that features, you guessed it, Disney characters. The RPG focuses on a war fought by three armies: The Heroes who are led by Simba, The Animal Villains led by Scar and the Human Villains led by Frollo.

* ''[[http://forum.learnnavi.org/role-play/ Strange Lands: A Pandoran RP]]'' is an Film/{{Avatar}} based RP. It was moved to its own board but is now dead and the site was replaced by War of Discord.
* The ''[[http://forums2.battleon.com/f/tt.asp?forumid=58 UCaG]]'', a land on the forum of Artix Entertainment that attracts all kinds of roleplayers, you can find a game from a FSG (Forum Stratagy game) To an A&R (Action and reaction, like roleplaying without dice.)
* ''[[http://www.vastempire.com The Vast Empire]]'' is a Star Wars based RPG set in the Thrawn Era, and one of the better quality Wars play by post ones. It has a sizable community, a IRC channel, and a video game subgroup.
* [[http://www.thestarwarsrp.com The Star Wars RP]] is a freeform role-playing site founded in 2005, with over 5,000 registered members and over 1 million posts. It is in its fifth role-playing era, "Star Wars Legacies," set over 1,000 years after Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Past timelines have included: Great Territorial War (set 30 years after Knights of the Old Republic) and Great Sovereign Crusades (set 100 years after Knights of the Old Republic), and two Prequel stories called Alsakan Crisis (set 13,000 years before the original Star Wars) and Great Hutt Wars (set 12,970 years before the original Star Wars).

* [[http://jedivsith.com/index.php Jedi vs. Sith]]. Originally stemming from a Facebook app, the site wound up popular enough to warrant its own space on the Internet proper. Like The Gungan Council, there is no set timeline (mileage varies site-wide as to whether this is good or bad), and the site features an entirely player-driven economy and faction system. Lacking the longevity of the other sites, however, it is still plagued with problems despite the best attempts of the moderators; powergaming is a common occurrence, godmodding slightly less so, and the site is rife with Expies (not all of them bad). On the bright side, the community spirit is near-unmatched, and for every bad [=RPer=], there's at least one stellar one.
* [[http://rolestuck.boards.net/ Rolestuck]] A small forum made specifically for roleplaying Sburb sessions, such as the ones found in the popular webcomic {{Webcomic/Homestuck}}.
* ''Website/NationStates'' is not itself one of these, but many player like to play them using their nations, either on the official forums or on the numerous forums created by players for various regions. And, amongst very vaguely and distantly similar lines, [[http://forums.civfanatics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=69 Never Ending Stories]] at the [=CivFanatics=] forum.
* Steve Jackson Games at one time ran a BBS on which a number of such games were played, including the free-form no-rules roleplaying forum which evolved into ''GURPS Illuminati University''.
* [[http://roleplayerguild.com/ Roleplayer Guild]] is a forum dedicated to pbp roleplays. Rps are sorted into three categories: [[IdiosyncraticDifficultyLevels Basic, Casual, and Advanced]].
* [[http://rpgforumsonline.com/ RPG Forums Online]] is another forum dedicated entirely to pbp roleplays.
* There is an entire site devoted to this known as [[http://www.rpol.net/ RolePlay Online]], or [=RPoL=]. It has a built-in software dice roller, among other features, allowing one to use dice in such a game seamlessly; however, quite a few of the games run there are still freeform.
* One of [[http://www.rpg.net RPGnet's]] forums exists for this purpose.
* Similar forums of the dedicated story type can be found on [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/ Spacebattles]] and [[http://forums.sufficientvelocity.com SufficientVelocity]]. Sufficient Velocity even has a built-in dice roller that can be connected to posts.
* Pretty much the purpose of [=GreatestJournal=] until [[SeriousBusiness Boldthrough 2007 on LiveJournal.]]
** Website/LiveJournal hosted [[JournalRoleplay quite a few.]] Most have since moved to [=InsaneJournal=] or Dreamwidth.
** Many of the [=GreatestJournal=] players have moved to [=InsaneJournal=].
* The Giant In The Playground [[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/ forums]], for the D&D-based webcomic [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Order of the Stick]], feature a fairly large section devoted to PBP games. The board, like [=RPoL=], even has its own dice roller. Some games have individual pages further down.
* [[http://plothook.net Plothook.NET]], another site devoted entirely to this.
* [[http://www.myth-weavers.com Myth-Weavers]], again, is solely for this purpose, and is known for its plethora of useful built-in software and message board mods, including a very popular XML CharacterSheet database.
* Hundreds of other forums have threads or subsections dedicated to roleplaying or cooperative storytelling, particularly on Fan Sites where the games deal with the forum's particular subject.
* [[http://www.cityofsupers.com/cgi-bin/discus/discus.cgi Prodigy]] is a superhero-based play-by-post, made out of original characters and played in the CityOfAdventure of Prodigy, New Jersey.
* [[http://forum.gateworld.net/showthread.php?t=12504 Stargate: Aftermath]]. A Franchise/StargateVerse based RPG, creating an alternate universe after Series/StargateSG1 season eight. Started with a EarthShatteringKaboom and has survived one Goa'uld assault and one earthquake.
* [[http://www.themuseacademy.com/prievillage/index.php?c=4 Muse Academy]]. Only readers of Muse Magazine understand half of what happens, but it's the special crazy sort of randomness that comes from having no real GM.
* [[http://www.birthright.net/ The Birthright]] campaign setting for AD&D and D&D has a large number of games running. The [=PCs=] of Bithright campaigns where not adventures but rulers. A given party might consist of The Duke, his Court Wizard, the High Priest, the Master of the local guilds etc. As well as normal adventuring stuff the game system had domain rounds, where [=PCs=] administered various holdings, collected taxes and fought wars. Which translated quite straightforwardly to play by post play in which most if not all of the different kingdoms are take by [=PCs=]. As well as the default campaign settings the 'engine' has also been used to run similar games set in Fantasy feudal Japan, post Arthurian Britain, etc.
* There was an impromptu one on the Website/GameFAQs VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork 5 Team Protoman board, reffed to the Battle of Light and Darkness. A fight broke out and turned into one of these.
* The [=GameFAQs=] ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork 6'' boards also went through a similar phase with the (insert character here) [=RPG=]s of Some Sort, although most of them took place on the [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo Gregar board instead of the Falzar board]]. The one that started this phase involved [[TheRival Protoman]], and a lot of WildMassGuessing and/or FanWank followed.
* Roleplay/HogwartsByNight is a game hosted on [[https://boards.net Boards.net]] and [[https://wordpress.com Wordpress]]. Founded in 2003, the game was a LongRunner that closed in 2011, but was rebooted after a six year hiatus. Through thorough CanonWelding, the game combines elements from the ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' series, ''TabletopGame/OldWorldOfDarkness'', and ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'', set in the modern era.
* BZPower has a Toys/{{Bionicle}}-themed roleplaying forum, it being a Bionicle fan forum, but don't expect to just walk in and make a new RPG-only three [=RPGs=] besides the Roleplay/{{BZPRPG}} can ever be occurring at once. They have to place 3rd or better in a polled contest every three months to even get started, and to avoid being closed they have to enter the contest again and place 3rd or higher again. Thankfully, there is an official planning topic to refine [=RPGs=] and RPG concepts.
** There are also a few [=RPGs=] active in Lego General Discussion and Completely Off Topic forums, including ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'', which ran for over seven and a half years. While more than three can be active at once, the former requires approval from an LGD forum leader (who acts as a quality control for incoming [=RPGs=]), while the latter requires 7 RPG judges, [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Sisen, the RPG Leader]], to approve the RP (which acts as a more strict quality control.) Thankfully for COT, there is ALSO an official planning topic for refining COT [=RPGs=] and COT RPG concepts.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia_(party_game) Mafia]] is a game seemingly made for this format.
** Indeed, there are quite a few sites dedicated to forum Mafia, which, given the nature of {{Message Board}}s, are much longer and involve much more detailed analysis than other formats. [[http://mafiascum.net MafiaScum]] is perhaps one of the best known sites devoted to the game.
** Mafia is also known as Werewolf. There's a very active Werewolf PBP forum on [[http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forum/58/boardgamegeek/werewolf BoardGameGeek]].
** Also, [[http://z13.invisionfree.com/eRegime/index.php?act=idx eRegime ]] is a similar site but run by the creator of the forum variant of Balance of Power himself.
** [[http://molotov.applied-logistics.org/ Molotov ]] Is another forum where Mafia (and non-mafia) games may be played.
** [[http://www.blankmediagames.com/phpbb/index.php The forums for]] VideoGame/TownOfSalem host a series of forum-based Mafia games, usually five or six at a time.
*** Also on this forum is a more open-ended roleplay called [[http://http://www.blankmediagames.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=12009 T.R.A.S.H:]] [[WordSaladTitle An Educational Syllabus to Survive Madness]].
* [[http://sosshinsei.proboards.com/index.cgi Suzumiya Haruhi no Yakuasobi]], literally the RP of LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya. A relatively new forum that's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* Roleplay/TheAnnobynUniverse is a jcink-based series of [=RP=] sites all set within the same continuity, employing mostly the same cast of characters and players. It ran from 2013 into early 2015 and focused primarily on the lives of several High School (and ultimately, college) students in a fictional Florida community as they dealt with totally normal TeenDrama type issues such as pregnancy, first love, substance abuse, gang violence, an ever-present clown mafia, ambiguously undead serial killers, alternate universes and much, much more...
* [[http://www.zeldaelements.net/roleplay/ Zelda Elements RP]]is a Zelda-based RP.
* ''[[http://simrtk.net/ Simrtk]]'' is a very large Play by post sim based off of the ''RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'' video games, with some dashes of Dynasty Warriors thrown in.
* [[http://stararmy.com Star Army]] features an original SpaceOpera / [[StandardSciFiSetting sci-fi setting]] created by its members and characterized by [[CoolStarship sleek, powerful starships]], [[PoweredArmor power armor]], [[ArtificialHuman cute catgirls]], and [[BadAssNormal heavily armed men of action]]. Star Army has run continuously since 2000 and has up to a dozen or so individual games within the universe's main factions at any given time.
* [[http://asylums.insanejournal.com/kiseki_rpg/profile Kiseki]], which is a Creator/{{CLAMP}}-based RP at Insanejournal. There's a mod who tosses events out every six weeks or so, but she doesn't really act as a GM per se and the gaming is very freeform.
* [[http://www.retributiongames.com/ Retribution Games]] sprung from forum-based games History of the World and Divided We Stand played on the Website/SomethingAwful Forums.
* [[http://z7.invisionfree.com/_timetopretend/index.php Time To Pretend]], an Academy RPG where characters have the spirits of Creator/{{Disney}} or other fairy tale characters.
* [[http://www.online-roleplaying.com/index.php Online-Roleplaying]] is yet another site, most active with D&D gamers but willing to host anything. It also has its own dice roller.
* [[http://superhero-rpg.forum-motion.com/forum.htm Super Hero Rpg]] is a superhero-themed RP with a story sorted into chapter arcs.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkPoSMClV1U This fictional commercial]] advertises a service that allows {{FPS}}es to be played this way.
* ''Roleplay/MSFHighForum'' has [[http://www.msfhigh.com/forum/index.php one]]. Characters from the forum have even appeared in this comic, and a good few of the moderators are tropers.
* The Gaming Steve Forums have one: [[Roleplay/GamingSteveUniverse The Gaming Steve Universe.]] The game itself can be found [[http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?board=18.0 here.]] While the individual creations' pages can be found [[http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?board=17.0 here.]] This is actually an offshoot of a Spore 2005 FanFic; when Spore failed to live up to the expectations of the universe that was created, Origin became its own story. Especially notable are the Nauceans, a race so well-built that Creator/WillWright himself CANONIZED them.
* [[http://oberon.hawkwingaerie.com/ Oberon and Salvation]] are two linked games, each following one of the eponymous ships in the Firefly 'verse. Like several examples listed above, these games emphasize writing as well as roleplay, and a general outline of the plot for each "episode" is worked out in advance, although there is a great amount of flexibility in the outline and deviations are generally accepted if they lead to good story.
* [[http://digimontribute.proboards.com// Digimon RP]] A board based on Anime/DigimonTamers, but as if it continued from Anime/DigimonAdventure02, and later Anime/DigimonFrontier. Anime/DigimonSavers is planned to be adapted later. Also included are Original Characters, and characters based from the mangas. This RP has lead to a spin-off, [[http://pokemonanddigimonrp.proboards.com// Pokemon & Digimon RP]] Unlike the previous RP, it isn't set in a universe mixed together, but a Multiverse which also includes a universe of Pokemon.
* [[http://www.gaiaonline.com/guilds/viewforum.php?f=90883/ Pokemon: The Three Relics]] A Pokemon roleplay of over six years of activity, boasting over 1400 pages of posts and a slew of well-developed characters mixed in with established [=NPCs=].
