Wanna Be Edward Cullen?

If you could change something in Twilight, act it out diffrently, continue the story, would you? Of course you would!

Would Jessica and Mike still be together? Would the Cullens still live in forks after Breaking Dawn? Do the wolves continue to imprint?

The latest craze on the Twilight front is Role Playing. What is role playing? Role playing is a game in which players assume the roles of characters, or take control of one or more avatars, in a fictional setting.

There are many reasons why twilight appeals to such a wide and varied audience. It takes themes of immortality and death, and couples them with thoughts on love, the nature of a relationship, and the nature of the preternatural world. As such it is natural for people to want to assume the roles of the characters in Twilight, in order to explore these themes for themselves.

There are so many ways to explore roles in the Twilight Universe. The most obvious is to take on the characters of Edward and Bella. This allows two people to play with the romantic aspects of the series, battling back and forth between indignant consternation, and free willed love.

There are also other roles which can be assumed. There are the humans, the Cullen family, Volturi, the hunter vampires, rogue werewolves, and a variety of allies and enemies which can be brought into the story.

Want to try it out for yourself? Below is a list of sites that do regular Twilight (over 18 only) RP and have a blast doing it. Click on a link, find a character and let the fun begin! There are ALWAYS roles open.
