RP stands for Role Playing. It's sometimes called RPG (RP game).

Basically, you're controlling a character. It can be a fan character you've created, or an official character. Most of the time though, it's a fan character.

You type that character's actions and lines. After posting it, you wait for others to respond.

You can post in dialogue style, like:
QUOTE
*confused* "Wait, what?" *looks around* "Who is speaking? Show yourself!"

Or you can use the story style, like:
QUOTE
"Wait, what?" he said, confused by the strange voice. "Who is speaking?" he added and looked around him. "Show yourself!"


This second way is like writing a fanfic, except you only control your own character. Usually, it's better not to go beyond three-four lines, occasionally five. Except when you're posting a long description, so nothing much happens.

However, the creator of the RP controls the main plot and makes events happen. So when it's time to cause an event, the creator can post something long, telling how an enemy approaches, how a cameo character speaks to the main characters...
Of course, this means you have to have a plot before starting an RP (you don't need to know it if you join an RP started by someone else though).
