Group Info

Having trouble finding active role play groups to call home, or giving your RP group a shoutout? You've come to the right place! RP-Archives is the biggest roleplay group directory on dA that doesn't focus on just one type of RP and allows you to advertise your own Group!

If you're looking to add your Group, read the Submission Rules carefully before posting/noting!

If you're looking for a Group, browse at your own pace through the Genre blogs, and maybe you'll find the roleplay you're looking for.

To have your Group listed, please read the rules below first!

:flame: No, you can't join this group.

We only need an admin team; being a member doesn't give you special access to anything and we're not here for you to advertise yourself (your groups? no problem). If we're not looking for admins, then there's no joining this group. Check out the blog to your right for actual fun stuff. >>>

:flame: We do not accept individual roleplayer ads.

There are dozens of roleplay directories that already do that. We curate roleplay groups.

:flame:We do not accept private/invite-only Groups.

Such Groups usually already have their members sorted out for themselves. RP-Archives is only for people to look for Groups where there's no need for them to have to be invited personally, whether by admins or the current members.

:flame: We do not advertise OCTs.

You may find what you're looking for in the-OCT-list.

:flame: We do not advertise offsite RPs.

We require a group icon to display on our blogs and will not link offsite. There are many other venues on the internet for your advertising needs!

:flame: You may not advertise your group or your RP partner search in any comment section.

Whether it is on the front page or in a journal, if your comment contains a link to a group or any sort of "looking for partner" it will be hidden. If you have questions please note the group; if you want to submit/update please use the appropriate forms.

:flame: All affiliation requests will be automatically accepted but will not be added to the list.

Please do not attach your submission details to the affiliation request.

:flame: If you see your group with :bulletblue::shrug: next to it,

it's because you didn't include the number of admins you want for your Group. PLEASE SPECIFY or else you get that emote forever.

:flame:Why is my group not on the front page?/How do you get onto the blog on the front page?

RP-Archives does bimonthly exposure blogs. Your group will be on the next bimonthly blog. If it isn't in the next blog, resubmit and double check your submission's info. Thank you.

:flame: If a group is a Fan Group, please include what it is based off in the About section.

:flame: Keep your About section concise and short.

We don't need to hear what you've got planned for your group or what's so great about it. Just tell us what is it about and stick to around two sentences.

:flame::flame: If your group has not made it to the bimonthly blogs, you are free to ask why politely.

Most likely, however, it's that you didn't follow the rules.

All link to their respective blogs.

:flame: Genre definitions are found HERE

Please read them carefully before submitting your group.



If you want to UPDATE your group, use this form.


Note: We do not update the blogs when enrollments and opening dates pass. You need to help us out by telling us something has changed, because there are way too many Groups to check up on.


We also accept group status changes and alerts on groups on the list that have closed down and/or deleted.

Oh and to add to my last post, any RP groups with animals in general is something I would be interested in too! So far I've mainly seen ones centered around one animal, however I'm looking for one(s) that have a multiple animal option!
(Also sorry for the double comment, it seems I could not edit my last comment)

Anyone know of any groups based on How to Train your Dragon or Guardians of Ga'Hoole? I searched through the Feral/Creature and Fan Group journals, but if one was listed I may have missed it!~

Anyone know of any BL groups or male academy groups that are open? I would also like Discord based groups if possible.

Does anyone know of an RP group happening around the year 2025? I want to transfer one of my characters to another group due to my current one being inactive.
