The new examples of complex characters in gaming combined with limitless time in chat rooms made Chat RP unapologetically character-focused.
Chat RP’s unique combination of eroticism, fan fiction and transience, makes it easy to disregard as smut, or, even worse, as mere “workshop” writing.

They are able to imagine modern day settings like Japan or New York as playful and erotic stages of powerplay.
