In the 41st century, merchants vie with pirates for control of the shipping lanes in galleons torn straight from the early 17th century.

CityofIF.com offers its users free online role playing games (RPGs) based on interactive stories that put you in the middle of the action. Our free online role playing games are based on multiple genres, such as Greek mythology, science fiction, horror, humor, fantasy, and much more.
If you're looking for something different than the traditional
free RPG games and the shortcomings involved with running a
group-based pen-and-paper role playing game, we offer an alternative.
Through our interactive forum software, we offer you the opportunity
to participate in what we call "storygames."
Our storygames are different than other types of free
online RPGs. Instead of rolling dice to determine the outcome
of an action, the author of each story posts a chapter up to
a "decision point." Players then describe the actions
they would like to take, which is then put into a poll and voted
on. The outcome of each poll determines where the game goes
Our site offers several different types of ongoing storygames. These online RPG games can span multiple chapters, and some of our online role play games can go over a dozen chapters. With our wide selection of genres and styles, players can take nearly any role they desire, from Roman and Greek gods and goddesses to space fighter pilots to magical mages, and more!
Our free online RPG's, based on stories you create, are unlike
anything else you'll find either online or off. Take a look
around at our online role play games, our information on Greek
mythology, and our forums for a sampling of what we offer.
Once you see how our storygames system works, we're sure you'll
come back for a fun alternative to traditional free online RPGs.
