Roleplay Code

Forum roleplaying games make frequent use of templates — whether for RPG character sheets or individual roleplay posts. It can be daunting to look at the awesome templates and code everyone else has in a game without any coding knowledge. Forum Roleplay’s RPG code resources both provide free templates and attempt to teach some basic HTML and CSS to the average roleplayer.

Tracking your RPG posts, for example, is a great way to keep proper characterization in mind. Keeping a well-organized character sheet can help you in this regard, too — and in developing your character further. RPG code and fancy templates are not absolutely necessary, but you just might find them useful in your forum roleplaying game journey!

Why RPG Code?

Starting with RPG codes is a great way to get into bigger code projects. It’s a gradual introduction to more advanced coding techniques — maybe you start on a little RPG template, and move on to a forum skin, then onto building a whole website! That’s how Forum Roleplay’s staff got started, anyway — and maybe the same can happen for you!

But I’m No Good with Code…

A lot of roleplayers are at least partially technologically proficient. The fact that they have an Internet hobby beyond Facebook and Twitter is a strong indicator of this! No matter how “stupid” (aka inexperienced) you feel with code, you are more technologically capable than the person who can’t even use an e-mail! Keep that in mind if you feel discouraged!
