->''"One would think that the two Dino Attack agents had the upper hand due to their sniping post, but the veteran agents knew that one should never believe in impossibilities in a war where Mutant T-Rexes could lay eggs in banks and not break much, and so be chuck full of personal stories that the database read like a convoluted TV show that made ''LOST'' look simple."''

''Dino Attack RPG'' is a [[PlayByPostGames text-based]] RolePlayingGame revolving around the conflict of Man Versus PrehistoricMonster... [[RecycledInSpace in a]] [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic setting]].

First created in 2005 in a small corner of the internet, the ''Dino Attack RPG'' defied expectations and proved popular enough to run over seven years. It followed the life stories of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters hundreds of characters]] all at once, and occasionally the paths of the characters would cross and result in team-ups or ridiculous conflicts. After a dark age in which the RPG lost most of its audience, it rose from the ashes with a new system that forced players to team up on [[StoryArc overly-long drawn-out quests]] that [[ShaggyDogStory sometimes end in failure]]. In addition to being confusing as heck, it's full of [[AnyoneCanDie death]], [[TrueArtIsAngsty despair]], [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder betrayal]], [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence violence]], and [[ApocalypseWow destruction]].

... [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids Wait, this is based upon an unpopular half-year]] ''[[Toys/LEGOThemes LEGO line]]''?

Indeed, strange things come from small packages.

Directly inspired by ''Roleplay/AlphaTeamMissionDeepFreezeRPG'', this [[PlayByPostGames Play By Post]] RolePlayingGame takes the idea of [[Franchise/{{LEGO}} LEGO's]] shortlived ''[[Toys/LEGODinoAttack Dino Attack]]'' line and runs with it, depicting the entire LEGO Planet in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic state]] thanks to the rampages of these [[PrehistoricMonster Mutant Dinosaurs]]. In addition, it creates [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters a wide cast of characters]], each with his or her own extensive backstory, as they band together to take on the Mutant Dino threat. This war takes the cast to {{Nostalgia Level}}s inspired by everyone's favorite LEGO themes while creating new and original storylines. This AdaptationExpansion answers many of the original toyline's unsolved mysteries, such as the origins of the Dino Attack, and brings it to places DarkerAndEdgier than The LEGO Group could have possibly imagined.

Over the course of seven years, the RPG has gone through a large number of players, each with their own distinct style. The RPG is hosted by [[Tropers/PeabodySam PeabodySam]], and some of its more notable writers include Kotua in Space, Chronicler of Ko-Koro, [=TakunuvaC01=], Jackson Lake, [[Tropers/JohnAlexanderHitchcock Atton Rand]], Toa Antrakha, [=Andrewnuva199=], that guy from that show, [[Tropers/BrikmanMcStudz Brikman McStudz]], and avmatoran.

''Dino Attack RPG'' is the longest-running LEGO-based RPG on Website/{{BZPower}}, its host site. The original ''Dino Attack RPG'' could be found [[http://web.archive.org/web/20121010225505/http://www.bzpower.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=181493 here]]. After the [=BZPower=] forum upgrade, ''Dino Attack RPG'' was finished in the form of ''Dino Attack: At War's End'', which can be found [[http://web.archive.org/web/20131023191722/http://www.bzpower.com/board/index.php?showtopic=3955 here]]. Unfortunately, ''Dino Attack RPG'' ultimately got ScrewedByTheNetwork on both fronts; the original ''Dino Attack RPG'', along with the rest of the [=BZPower=] Forum Archive, was lost in a hacking incident, while ''At War's End'' was turned into [[http://www.bzpower.com/board/index.php?showtopic=3955 an unreadable wall of text]] following a formatting update on the new forums. As a result, for those who may be potentially interested in reading the RPG, [=BZPower=] is not the website to use.

Instead, [=PeabodySam=] and [=Andrewnuva199=] compiled the RPG into two downloadable archives for ''[[http://www.mediafire.com/file/b5dbl3k79z85czt/Dino_Attack_RPG_Archive_v2.0.zip Dino Attack RPG]]'' and ''[[http://www.mediafire.com/download/k3ks468uis6ono8/AtWarsEnd_(2).zip Dino Attack: At War's End]]''. These archives include editor's notes to establish continuity and canonicity, as well as filling in [[MissingEpisode gaps]] for the original RPG.

Starting in 2016, a ComicBookAdaptation titled ''[[http://mustachemaniacsfilmco.webs.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=16001696 DINO ATTACK: Saga of a Conflict]]'' was being developed by [[http://mustachemaniacsfilmco.webs.com/ Mustache Maniacs Film Co.]], a group best known for making [[StopMotion brickfilms]]. A trailer can be viewed [[https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=C3pQjlBRhoc here]], advertising the comic and the tie-in playsets. The comic and playsets were both cancelled in April 2018.

Has a [[Characters/DinoAttackRPG Characters index]], as well as a lengthy list of [[ShoutOut/DinoAttackRPG Shout-Outs]].

[[http://dinoattackrpg01.wikia.com/wiki/Dino_Attack_RPG_Wiki Also has its own wiki]], [[TheWikiRule obviously]]. In fact, during the DevelopmentHell between ''Dino Attack RPG'' and ''Dino Attack: At War's End'', the writers kept themselves busy by writing this very TV Tropes page on the wiki.
