Although mainly centered around ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' RP, the website [[http://rpmadesimple.org/ RP Made Simple]] is a very good resource for information about roleplaying.

In mainstream media, roleplaying as a whole tends to have a very bad reputation. It's been accused of everything from making teenagers antisocial to turning them into mass-murdering Satan-worshipping neo-Nazis that eat kittens for breakfast and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking trip old ladies in their spare time.]] Naturally, none of this is true, at least not about roleplayers as a whole.

As mentioned before, RP has gotten a REALLY bad reputation in the media, particularly Dungeons & Dragons, which was subject to an intense hate campaign by many MoralGuardians. Several books were written on the subject, as well as a movie made, most of which aren't very well-known. LARP and chatroom RP haven't seen as much grief from the media due to the obscurity of [=LARPing=] and the fact that there are many, many better things to complain about on the internet than RP.

Of course, to RP, one needs to act as a character. A significant amount of [=RPers=] roleplay a character from the favorite book/TV show/movie/whathaveyou (LivejournalRoleplay in particular revolves around this,) but many still come up with completely original characters to use. In an MMO, expect the player to use their in-game avatar.
