RPG Post Templates

In forum roleplaying games, RPG post templates are extra formatting and layouts for your individual roleplay posts. They are a form of RPG graphic, and are most often used to emphasize the mood or tone of a particular RPG post or thread. Post templates are usually optional at roleplaying games. Some roleplaying games mandate them, just as some others ban them entirely. Make certain you double check with your forum roleplaying game’s rules before you use a post template. You don’t want to break the rules.

HTML/CSS post templates attempt to provide the easiest method of updating and maintaining your post templates. It can be painful to go back and edit old posts if the forum skin changes and suddenly your text size or color is no longer compatible with the forum skin. Using a CSS post template may help you in this regard. If you want to write your own RPG post templates, these tutorials and free templates can help you. Alternatively, if you’d rather not write your own code, there are also free RPG post templates available for your use, too!
