->''"One would think that the two Dino Attack agents had the upper hand due to their sniping post, but the veteran agents [[GenreSavvy 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 ''Series/{{LOST}}'' look simple."''

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

First created in 2005 by [[ReclusiveArtist a recluse]] who is [[BlatantLies supposedly a centenarian]], the ''Dino Attack RPG'' exploded with popularity. 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 join the centenarian on [[StoryArc overly-long drawn-out quests]] that [[ShaggyDogStory sometimes end in failure]]. In addition to [[PutneySwopePanic being confusing as heck]], it's full of [[AnyoneCanDie death]], [[TrueArtIsAngsty despair]], [[FaceHeelTurn 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.

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 Dino Attack's unsolved mysteries, such as the origins of the Dino Attack, and brings it to places DarkerAndEdgier than [[Franchise/{{LEGO}} 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 Antrahka, 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://www.bzpower.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=181493 here]].[[note]]Following a hacking incident, the Website/{{BZPower}} Archives are no longer online, making the entirety of the original ''Dino Attack RPG'' an extreme case of MissingEpisode. What little can be recovered is collected on [[http://dinoattackrpg02.wikia.com/wiki/Dino_Attack_RPG_Archive_Wiki this wiki]].[[/note]] After the Website/{{BZPower}} forum upgrade, ''Dino Attack RPG'' was finished in the form of ''Dino Attack: At War's End'', which can be found [[http://www.bzpower.com/board/index.php?showtopic=3955 here]].[[note]]Please excuse the mess; following a forum software update in late 2013, much of the formatting in the RPG is currently broken, though the Website/{{BZPower}} staff is supposedly working on rectifying this issue. To see the first ten pages of the RPG as they were meant to be seen, see [[https://web.archive.org/web/20131023191722/http://www.bzpower.com/board/index.php?showtopic=3955 this (currently incomplete) Wayback Machine mirror]].[[/note]]

Has a [[Characters/DinoAttackRPG Characters index]] that is currently under construction, 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.
