Quote of the Month
Our quote of the month comes from massivelyop.com
Roleplaying is an art. Displaying what our endless imaginations conjure is an important component of our gaming, whether it be through paintings, the graphic art of online games, or photographs. Enjoy the art we're featuring this month, and I hope it moves your imagination to new destinations!

Even the greatest characters we create in our roleplay have flaws and weaknesses. When we build and use these in our character, it allows us to really flex our creative muscles. The generator below is a fun way to give us a new perspective on our characters! Use the random generator, and imagine what would happen if your character developed the attribute it gives you.
Here is a result from one of our community members:
Result: Your character is addicted to a dangerous substance and emotionally fragile.

We imagine the music our character's would listen to, and we even give them their own theme songs. Music can be inspiring to our story creation and roleplay, and a meaningful backdrop for our scenes. But mostly it's just fun!
Recently a group of roleplayers was inspired by a steampunk opera called Dolls of New Albion. They used it as a part of their campaign as well as holding the Opera itself in the roleplay. The music is captivating and the story is gripping.
Compania Y and Ovalhouse Theatre performed this Steampunk Opera in 2015, and the video is below.
Enjoy our featured music, and submit inspiring and fun music into the forums here for everyone to enjoy!

Reviews from enworld.org
- Shimrath: 5 Stars, without hesitation. These are some of the very best adventures I have ever read/played.
- Panthanas: From the game mechanics standpoint, my players, as well as myself as the DM, enjoy the unique nature of the NPCs. Each are well thought out and balanced. My players have commented that each major combat is different from the last and how the unique nature of the major combatants is a refreshing turn from battling standard Monster Manual bad guys. Furthermore, the quality and production standards for the PDFs are excellent, from the layout to the art. Highly recommended.

RP Communities and Resources Database We're still working on getting the database up but if you have any suggestions for content please let us know.
RPHQ Podcast The RPHQ podcast will be a separate entity from Rock'n'Roleplay. It will be in shorter format and more focused on the website itself and RP in general. We'd like to feature members of the forum so keep your eyes peeled for that!
Lore Podcast Another unnamed podcast! This one will be yet another separate entity, entirely focused on lore from various settings. Those of you who frequent the teso-rp forums will be familiar with its host, Mycroft the Lore Lizard!
Pagan Rock'n'Roleplay The next episode of RnRP will peek into the world of modern Paganism and attempt to uncover why there seems to be a strong correlation between it and roleplay. As always, the White Falls voice RP will continue as well.
