Roleplay: Phoenix Roleplaying
British-based Play By Post site, formed in August 2010 as the concluding result of what the members call the AJJE Schism, where over a dozen senior members of AJJE Games (and a few others) quit the site in protest at the overturning of a ban.

Has about 30 sims covering works like Firefly and Stargate SG-1, but with a few original sims like Silent Hunter's Fighter Ops.

Can be found here.


This site contains examples of:
  • Casting Gag: Silent Hunter's decision to have Stana Katic playing a character in a Firefly sim. Or for that matter, her similar appearance in The Drake Club, which featured a PC played by Nathan Fillion.
  • Code Name:
    • Tracey "Essex" Novak - born on Canvey Island.
    • Ali "Nasser" Hussein - after the cricketer.
    • Pierce "Salmon" Langer - he's the heir to a fishery empire.
    • Noshin "Posh" al-Qasami - "Posh Nosh".
    • Naomi "Sailor" Baines - former Sea Scout.
  • Cool Plane: Most of the aircraft in Fighter Ops.
  • Cop Show: Sierra Charlie Four.
  • The Edwardian Era: The now defunct The Drake Club.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Tina Suvorova in Umbra, whose test to join that ship's crew involved target shooting while legally naked.
  • Hired Guns: Quite a few of them in the Firefly sims, most notably the Lions of Guang Dong in Atlantis and the crew of Kvant.
  • Knight Fever: Air Chief Marshal Sir Percy Wallington KCB. Also joined by Wing Commander Ali Hussein MBE.

    • Wallenstein, a mercenary PMC, is named after Czech mercenary commander Albrecht von Wallenstein.
    • Brent Cross, another PMC, is named after a shopping centre in London. All its regiments are named after British shopping centres.
