barbermonger: a one on one roleplay search forum


BARBERMONGER is a site designed to help roleplayers find other roleplayers, specifically one-on-one roleplayers, as opposed to larger roleplay games. Functioning like a pinboard, BARBERMONGER allows users to create advertisements, bump advertisements, and respond to other advertisements, without requiring them to register an account. However, registering an account will allow you to edit your posts, find your own topics, and use the private messaging system.

Hi, all. I'm called Jack. I'm in search of a roleplay partner once again. So let me tell you a bit about myself first:

*23 years old
*History teacher
*15 years of roleplaying experience
*Loves dogs
*Stressed AF
*Down for literally anything

That’s basically all there is, so I'll move on to what I'm craving:

— My favorite story is a historical swashbuckler, and I’ve got a few good plots that can take our adventures on the high seas if you’re interested. I have a tried-and-true pirate character who I love and never have any problem playing, but right now I’m craving a bit of a switch-up to try out some other characters.
— Something medieval strikes my fancy as well. Let me know if you wanna hear those plots tongue.gif
— Actually pretty much everything in history is fascinating to me so...hmu

— I don’t much care for the typical slice-of-life role plays that exist within the modern genre. I’d rather do something more exciting that plays off real current events or something similar.
— There’s this little glimmer of a plot dancing in the back of my mind that refuses to be drawn any further out. I’d like to try something that deals with the criminal underworld, big-time bank robbers and the like. I’d like to see a couple characters who get into the game as kids and develop a dependency on each other and eventually some feelings that just add to the risk of what they do. Like most of my thoughts, this one is very half-baked but I’d love to try and hash something out with you.

— Once again I have hardly any ideas, but if someone wants to do a Fallout-themed roleplay with me I would be more than psyched. (note: zombies are very cool too).

So there you have my cravings but honestly, there are tons more things I'm into. It's all listed on my page, which I'll link up at the bottom. Of course, you'rel free to hit me up with any of your own ideas. Mayhaps we can mix our thoughts and create something truly special :’)

Hope to hear from you guys soon!

Hi, all. I'm called Jack. I'm in search of a role play partner once again. So let's go over the technical stuff first.

*I'm 22 years old. I'd rather my potential role play partners be over the age of 18, or at least out of high school. It's not for any reason other than the fact that I'm interning at a high school right now, and studying to be a teacher myself. It would probably not go over too well if it came out that I'd been doing role plays with people of the age group I'm meant to be teaching. Idk.

*I've been role playing for almost 14 years, since the Neopet days of old *cringe*. I like to think I've gotten a bit better since then. I do take my writing pretty seriously and would appreciate it if you did too, but ultimately I hope we can have fun with it.

*I like to destress at the end of a long day by writing. That said, sometimes my posts can get pretty long but they won't always be like that, and you shouldn't feel the need to match it every time. As long as the post has something in it for me to respond to, I don't really care for the length.

*I am not the most timely person in the world when it comes to responding, I'll admit. I'm in my last year of college, taking a full schedule, plus working, plus I do try to have some semblance of a social life so... There will be weeks in which you won't hear a peep out of me, and lazy do-nothing days where I'll have time to sit and write for hours. As a rule, I try my best to respond anywhere between once a day and once a week, but hopefully no longer than two weeks. Of course, I will be quite understanding of your own schedule and any delays that may come as a result of it.

*I don't really have limits honestly. I'd say I'm a pretty adventurous writer. Any kind of drug use, violence, or foul language is fine. I don't mind writing smut either, though I would rather it not be the driving force behind the role play. Most importantly, I ask that we avoid pedophilia like the plague. Age differences are fine and can make role plays interesting, but I'd rather not have any character younger than 16 romantically involved with anyone over 16.

*I prefer to role play over email, but I might be convinced to try a google doc or something.

*At this time, I'm only interested in writing out M//- or MxF-oriented relationships. Romance doesn't have to be a huge theme in the role play, but it is kind of my favorite so...

*I like darker, more mature stories as opposed to the light, fluffy kind (though there's plenty of room for that too!). I like characters with depth and backstory. I like making the worst case scenario happen in my writing, because it's fun I'm not wrong.

*I'm a fan of using visual aids (see: education major) as long as my partner is up for it. Not just face claims, but photos that capture moods, items, settings, cultures, or anything else relevant to the role play or world-building. When a role play is good, I tend to get very invested and like to be able to look back at stuff like that for inspiration (but none of this is a requirement, just something cool).

*Again, it's not a demand or anything, but just a FYI - I usually employ the use of a character "cheat sheet" if you will, featuring face claims and detailing the characters basic facts and background or whatever else. I think role plays can be started a lot more efficiently if we know a bit more about each others characters.

I think that's everything, so I'll move onto what I'm craving right now.

-- Historical genres are my forte and I'll never stop craving them. However, I don't expect anyone to display a vast knowledge of historical events, nor am I interested in role plays that are completely 100% historically accurate. Let's just have fun with it.

--I have other interests as well, ranging from modern to futuristic. I equally enjoy implementing fantasy into any role play too, especially the historical kind, but I am also a fan of realism as well.

-- Currently I am craving a role play of the Pirate or Medieval era (fantasy or otherwise) genres.

-- I have a couple Pirate plots, including ideas for a pirate x navy pairing, or a pirate x noble pairing. I also have something of a Pirate plot that is largely fantasy, involving demigods, prophecies, and all that jazz.

-- I also have a medieval plot, possibly medieval fantasy, that is more complicated but I'll be happy to explain it once you've contact me.

-- I have other plots too but I can't remember them off the top of my head. I'm pretty sure there's a more in-depth list on my website jackwritesthings.

Hope to hear from you guys soon!

Hello all.

First of all I wanna say that sorry to those of you who I tried to get a role play going with me over the last few months. I've been taking some pretty rigorous classes and worked my ass off to get ahead this summer. Thankfully that means I get to take a little break now, and I'm looking to start off an RP.

I'd really be down for something dramatic and adventurous, and preferably historically. Lately I've really been craving something to do with pirates, or perhaps something set in the medieval or early modern periods of British history, though I'm not picky if you have other requests. I'm a history major so I take a lot of history classes about random shit and then get inspired to write about it, but that doesn't mean I won't do other stuff either. Just ask!

Also, if you were thinking about a historical role play, no worries. I don't like to make my role plays historically accurate anymore than you do probably. That would feel too much like a research paper, and God knows I do enough of those. So I'm not a stickler or anything, we can be as accurate or inaccurate as we want.

So if by some odd chance any of you are interested in a role play with me, here's a link to my page. Just fill out the form on the contact page to get in touch. Hope to hear form you soon!

I'm looking for a mature, literate partner for a one on one role play over email. Right now I'm really craving a historical-based plot, namely something with pirates. My life has been kind of crazy the past year or so, thus I'm not looking for someone whose going to wig out if I don't respond for a day or two or three or seven. I just want a nice, chill role play where we take our time and actual deliver quality rather quick responses. More is explained in the link above.
