FYRPD Status Every month on the 18th Involvement Creator
FYRPD is a once a month project, where we as the roleplay community of Tumblr set aside a day to celebrate, discuss, and highlight diversity within our space. It will give us all a chance to promote both new and old roleplays with diversity, engage in important discussions about what makes a roleplay inclusive, and will all around help us maintain our community better by celebrating the best of our hobby.
COA (ROLEPLAY) Status Open // 2 Years Involvement Creator/Admin
Children Of Athoria is a medieval fantasy, supernatural roleplay that's been a staple in the Tumblr community now for going on two years. It's an ever expanding world filled with war, chaos, and amazing members & staff that make it all possible. Always looking for new blood.

I roleplay far more than I should. I love worldbuilding, and being a cynic.

This site can be triggering. All triggering content will be tagged accordingly. If you need something tagged specifically for you, please send me a message and let me know. I withhold the right to deny help to anyone, but I will definitely try my best to get back to all messages. If I can't provide sufficient help, I will find links to other blogs, articles, etc. both on and off Tumblr that can point you in the right direction. If you've sent me a message and it hasn't been responded to yet, try sending it again. Tumblr likely ate it.
Bro-Tip: Describing Skin Color.
Do not compare skin color to food because it’s fucking insulting.
Do not say someone looks “exotic” because it, too, is insulting.
If you are going to describe the skin color of a non-white person, fucking describe the white person’s skin color too. The fact that you feel the need to state a non-white character’s race is a reminder that people assume characters are white until stated otherwise — an undeniable and unpleasant fact of society. If you’re going to do it for one, do it for the other. (If you’re using a face claim, you don’t fucking need to describe skin color, please stop)
Your characterization should not begin and end with skin color in your writing, even for NPCs.
Do some research about race before you commit to a skin color for your character, if you choose to describe it at all — it can only help.
