To have your Group listed, you must fill in the form below:

:.icongroupname.: OR :.devgroupname.:
Genre: Please choose from ONE of our 7 genres, do not make up your own.
Enrolments: Open/Closed - Optional: When will you open/close?
Under construction: Yes/No
Looking for Admins: Yes/No - Please state the exact number/range.
Requires Partner: Yes/No/Assigned by group/Can be assigned
Media: What do you focus on? Drawing, writing and/or roleplaying?
RP System: Where do you RP? dA Chat, forum, skype, etc.?
About: Write 1-2 sentences on what your Group is about. No more than that.

Font size increased for emphasis.

:flame: Note the Group OR comment on the front page. Do either one, we will do the rest of the advertising for you. If you do both, we will hide the comment!

: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 OCTFollowers.

: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: When sending multiple groups, please organise them by genre. Mostly because it's difficult to check if we've added your Group in or not without copious amounts of staring at a screen.

: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: If you make a mistake with your submission, can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO YOUR OWN COMMENT. We do not receive these comments, so we don't know unless we take a look at the front page. Make a new comment instead with the right info!

: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. Thank you.

:flame: Please use one of our seven genres, do not make up your own.
Also know that Fan group > Academy > Any other genre.

:flame: If a group is a fangroup, please include what it is based off in the about.

:flame: When filling in rp system, private means of rping do not need to be listed as they are a given and left to the users discretion. (ie two people may rp via notes, this is private. A group of people would use the chatroom)

: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.

:flame: If you are updating your group, please include the genre it is under. We don't always have time (or smooth internet) to look for your group. The secret phrase is "rice is healthy".

:flame::flame: We outright reject any submission that does not follow the rules and hide the comment on the page. Resend your submission by making a new comment or sending a note.

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.

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.
