What is Roleplay? How do I roleplay?

Paraphrased from the Roleplay FAQ


Play-by-Post roleplay is a form of round-robin writing. Writing is the medium of our game, which distinguishes PBP roleplay from table-top games (D&D, Warhammer, etc), video games (WoW, GuildWars, etc) and LARP. Threads are created in their relevant location (Terrenus roleplay in Terrenus, Alterion roleplay in Alterion, etc) by players and others reply to those threads. Our game pieces are our characters and the setting is the world of Valucre itself. Collaboration is key and is also a distinguishing feature of roleplay.

Lore Based Approach (Research)

Valucre is the name of the in-character planet. On the Valucre planet there exists the major continents: Terrenus, Genesaris, and Tellus Mater, each of these hosting a number of nations and territories within their borders. You can learn more about Valucre the planet and its nations in Valucre - An Overview.
In the above article you'll find links to the articles for the various nations, to the Mild Powers article, and the Ask Me Anything threads so that you can ask questions directly to board leaders.
Roleplay Based Approach (Action)
If you want to get directly into the roleplay and read up on the lore as you go, then visit the Water Cooler. The Valucre Facebook also has curated interest checks and events. A number of members have had some success in making characters new to the world, so they can learn about Valucre as they roleplay. 
The Water Cooler is where members post advertisements for their Valucre roleplays. Quests, artifact hunts, plot-lines created by members, by board leaders, 1x1, group roleplays. You name it, that's the best place to find it.
If you're itching to write and write right now, then any of the threads listed in the Open Roleplays is looking for people to join. Open Roleplays an aggregate list of all the threads that are tagged as Open. Tagging a thread as Open is a conscious decision on behalf of the thread creator to announce they want more people. If you see something you like, jump in.
What if I'm a total newbie?
You'll probably want to visit the Tavern of Legend. The ToL is watched over by staff and appointed ToL Mentors, and is a great place for new members to write and roleplay meanwhile they get accustomed to the site.
Since the Tavern of Legend is limited to members that have been on the site for 3 months or less, it's also a great place to fraternize with other members new to the site.
What if I want to play something outside of the Valucre canon?
We have something for that too. The Alternative section. In Alternative, you have nearly unrestricted freedom. You'll still need to follow the Code of Conduct, but you'll be able to create any fictional world or internal rules that you want, or play in areas that don't exist on Valucre.
What if I have more questions?
If you have any questions you can contact administration via the Contact Us Form. If you have questions about the different locations you can contact board leaders directly or post in the relevant AMA.
