Dinotopia is notable for the large Role Playing and Fan Fiction community it has accumulated. Dinotopia being primarily based in books and the written word (although the miniseries and series have been made) predisposes it to such attentions, which are particularly noticeable on the Internet.
Dinotopia Wiki and RPG
Although Dinotopia Wiki has been a semi-RP site in the past, this site is now asking that no role playing content be added please. This is in an effort to give this wiki a direction. We thank you for you co-operation in advance.
"A role-playing game (RPG, often roleplaying game) is a type of game in which the participants assume the roles of fictional characters and collaboratively create or follow stories. Participants determine the actions of their characters based on their characterization, and the actions succeed or fail according to a formal system of rules and guidelines. Within the rules, players can improvise freely; their choices shape the direction and outcome of the games."
"In roleplaying, participants adopt and act out the role of characters, or parts, that may have personalities, motivations, and backgrounds different from their own. Roleplaying is like being in an improvisational drama or free-form theatre, in which the participants are the actors who are playing parts, and the audience."
Roleplaying (or RP) is mainly done in forums or newsgroups (although the latter has decreased in popularity in recent years).
