The Forbidden Art, or TFA as it called by its members, is a long running online text based roleplay run by internet user Aroromonroe. Started in August of 2012, the RP has become legendary, and infamous, among the Battleon Roleplaying boards. After a feud with the moderators of that forum, the rolepay was moved to its own private forums where it took on a life of it's own. Eventually the forums were expanded to allow for other roleplayers to create their own. The Forbidden Forums now has a base of over thirty active people and counting. The official website can be found at https://theforbiddenforums.forumotion.comThe actual plot line is slow and steady. Quite frequently, there was pages of just interactions. The only way to get the plot moving was to make a fire or unleash magical creatures.
The roleplay contains examples of the following Tropes:
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Was this during it's time on the Battleon RP'ing boards.
- Hot Springs Episode: Had one, now unfortunately deleted due to someone not avoiding the radar.
- Living Weapon: The Manaflayers are said to be this.
- Rape and Switch: What made Vera a Lesbian.
- Uriah Gambit: Azirak's original mission.
