As the title states, we are curious about why everyone roleplays, and how they got started.
Everyone has different reasons for why they like to roleplay, so we decided to start a topic so we could hear the various reasons why. So what is your reason or reasons for roleplaying? Do you do it because you enjoy creative writing, do you do it because you like making friends, or is there some other reason you roleplay?
We also would love to hear how everyone got started, because such stories are always interesting and it is such a huge world out there, so answers are sure to vary from person to person.
