    Atlantic is the most populated server, but I don't know which shard to direct you to as far as RP goes. I play on Catskills, Fairly busy shard, but not so full you can't find a spot to place a decent sized house if you wanted, and I know we have a couple of RP guilds around. I'm just not sure of their size.

    Catskills has a small, but very active RP community with the two largest RP guilds having 24 and about 40 players (as opposed to characters).

    Europa has invididual RP guilds with more players than all the RP guilds on most other shards. (BoC for example)

    But you can certainly find a roleplay community on any shard.

    Chesapeake has a good, strong roleplaying community that hearkens back as far as the original days! We have a number of player-run cities, including Pax Lair, one of those rare GM-blessed places that is unique in all the shards!

    Dragon's Watch, an ally of Pax Lair, often hangs out in New Haven, (DWxC) so we're not hard to find at all! We do a little roleplaying, a little PvM, a little of everything. We've also got a crafting night on Wednesday nights (tonight be a little shorter than normal, usually we do it from 8-10, but there's actually a roleplay event at 9 - feel free to create a character and join us!
  8. If you want a strong roleplaying base, come to Baja. Check out Stratics News for Baja shard, it's packed full of events all the time. We have so many fun things happening right now, both player events and EM events. It's amazing!
