Iqarus is a site built for the sole purpose of rping online, and we’re looking for new players! At present, Iqarus (IQ for short) is focused on chat room rp. In the future we will be adding features that will allow for different types of rp to take place easily in rooms like forum-based rp and blog-based rp (like tumblr or livejournal).
What do you need to get started? Just be 13 and sign up for an iqID. iqID’s connect all of your usernames together in all the rooms. Allowing you to manage all of them from one central location and connect all of your private messages in one location so you can see them regardless of what room you’re in.
Interested in starting your own room on Iqarus? Once you sign up for your iqID just submit a room request form. If you have any questions about the form this guide will be able to help. The guide is also linked on the form page as well.
IQ is live but still very much in development as we’re adding in features and upgrading the overall feel and functionality of the rooms. For the most up-to-date info on when work is being done and completed or entering a testing phase check out the IQ facebook page. We keep it updated and have polls to help steer our development efforts to what you, the users, desire.
Even if you choose not to rp on IQ we do offer a service (possibly more in the future as time permits) called the Avatar Search. This is a database of various actors, actresses, models, etc. that can be used as avatars or face claims for characters. This feature, like the rest of the site, is constantly being added upon and growing. If you happen to have an iqID and are logged in, you can also favorite people to easily refer back to them in your favorites list stored on the site.
Just putting this out there in case it kicks my husband’s butt to get stuff done. In the future, there should be chats that function more like game role-playing, a la random encounters and possible dying and etc. It has to be coded, but it is in the works. There is an idea to have a Pokemon chat be the beta, and a monthly Hunger Games-esque chat as well.
