There are many free Role Playing Games (RPG) around the internet. Many of these games are online MMORPGs, but there are some that are traditional paper and pencil RPGs that have been created by players that have an interest in gaming and making games. Some of these games do involve other peoples copyrighted material, so remember that as you look around at all the interesting free games. Below I'll list some of the sites that have FREE RPGs, online and print.
