El Goonish Shive: RP is a fan work based on Dan Shive's brilliant long-running webcomic El Goonish Shive.

Mainly inspired by Steven and the Crystal GMs, this webcomic falls in the genre of Campaign Webcomics as pioneered by Shamus Young's DM of the Rings and the Comic Irregulars' Darths & Droids. Here, the story of El Goonish Shive is presented as a tabletop roleplaying game played by some teens on a Saturday evening. The roleplayers chat amongst eachother while rolling dice and deciding upon the actions of the characters.

My main goal for this project is to explore identity in roleplaying: How roleplaying a character can serve to explore yourself and to express yourself. This webcomic isn't a comedy, because I do not have a sense of humour.

I've never even played a tabletop roleplaying game...
