Phoenix Roleplaying is a multi-genre role-playing site with 24 active forum role-plays to its name. Six of these are set in the Firefly universe, but the club also has role-plays in Star Wars, Stargate, Baldur's Gate and a number of other famous series - in addition, the club has a number of original role-plays such as The Dark Cometh and Fighter Ops.
History and governanceEdit
Phoenix Roleplaying saw the light of day in August 2010 as a play-by-post role-playing network, following the mass withdrawal of its founding members from AJJE Games (frequently referred to by players as "the old country") in a protest over government policy and the brief existence of DDC Games. The founding core of Phoenix were thus motivated by creating an environment where writers and roleplayers could have fun in a fair and democratic community.
As such, it has a democratically elected government under a General Coordinator (currently Misty Wilson, the fourth such coordinator) and legislation decided in member votes.
The club has no rank system and any member is allowed to create a role-play.
