I'm spreading the word about a roleplay community initiative started and owned by amidwx, because the seeds of something great are right here, and all it needs is more enthusiastic contributors and users!

The Guild Wars 2 Roleplay Wiki is not affiliated with any particular sub-community or forum, making it a great neutral ground for the roleplaying community to gather and share their characters, stories and publicise their events.

Some things you can do in the wiki:
  • List your intended roleplay guilds, or find one to join
  • Share your characters, writing, art and other creative works
  • Post your planned roleplay events, or find one to join
  • Search for characters by profession or race and find the perfect roleplaying buddies
  • Keep up with and contribute roleplay-relevant news
  • Learn about roleplaying and contribute new guides to help get the curious and the newcomers started!


If you're interested in getting involved and helping us turn this wiki into a great shared resource for the budding GW2 roleplaying community, there's no need to ask permission. Get right on in there and start contributing! But if you need a few steps to help you get started, the following should help:


I look forward to seeing your contributions :) Any questions at all, just ask!

I remember when this first went up, it's a great resource for organization and gathering knowledge :)

Your mention of it in another thread actually reminded me to make a thread about it, finally XD

Looks great!  Definitely going to help out.  Just curious though, how are you going to monitor the guilds section for dead/inactive guilds?  I just don't want it to turn into a dumkping-ground of {{stub}} guild pages.

If a plethora of dead guilds pop up on it we can just remove them from the  list and they can re-add themselves when their active again.

I've approved everyone that's requested to join. Thanks for signing up and contributing!  

You don't have to wait for approval to start editing, by the way, though you do need to have signed up for an account to make any new pages.  

As to the dead guilds: The primary goal isn't to be an active guild directory, necessarily, though if it helps people find a guild, then that's all the better.  It we get too many that aren't in operation anymore, though, we'll just separate it out into two tables, one with active and the other with inactive guilds.

Sorry, I'm not telling anybody what names I've come up with, that way they can't get stolen.

You can still give their first name and censor the last somehow (... ; *** ; --- ; etc.). That's what I'll do. For example: Mahrn ********* or Jack ...

Also, this wiki is much appreciated. I'll sign up tomorrow, but it will still be some time before I fully flesh out the bios of my GW2 characters and start writing them up in the wiki. I'm not even done with my GW1 ones, lol.

If you give them a fake name - or if anyone decides to change their character's name, for that matter - I can totally change it for you on the wiki after launch.  It's not a problem; I've already had to do it once for a few guildies thus far.

What I did was give my character a nickname, and put that on the site.

Still, the wiki is also good for documenting any NPC characters you have, any guilds planned, or any stories you have written about them.

I made a page for the character I'm most excited about roleplaying. I haven't really filled it out yet, she doesn't have a name and I find writing without one very difficult.

Still, its a lot of fun. :D

Maximum coolness!  Nice looking site & looking forward to contributing to it. I have Rp'd to varying degrees in most every MMO and guild that I have played since 1994ish (to seriously date meself). Looking forward to some 'serious' GW2 RP fun in a bud's All Asura guild and me own PvP/WvWvW guild too.

CYAS in game soon! hopefully :D

If you signed up this morning, your accounts have all been approved to join the wiki.  Welcome and don't hesitate to make yourselves at home!

If you don't have a character yet, there are other ways that you can help out.  The Roleplay Guide can always use more advice-filled articles, or you could write something a bit more interesting and pertinent to roleplay than the default descriptions of the races or professions that are currently getting used on the headers.

I will be all over joining this wiki as soon as I have solidified my characters, in light of: http://www.guildwars...ity-t29305.html

Looking forward to meeting many awesome RPers :)

the intro to RPing on the wiki is amazingly helpful so far and I've only gone through about half of the information! I'd love to get into RP in GW2, so thank you so much for this

I like this and it's potential, but it's needs aesthetic polishing. At the moment, it looks like an abandoned old site that Google accidentally suggested. Otherwise yeah, this site is great/helpful, what have you, and I look forward to using it.
