The main focus of the site is an elaborate chat system, which involves multiple rooms. This chat allows roleplaying activities to be carried out in real time. Watching this chat is often like watching the writing of a giant, never ending novel, which is being created in tandem right before your eyes. http://www.rolepages.com/
In many ways, the profiles, and blogs, and other content devices are all designed to support the action that takes place in the various chat rooms. They tell a backstory that sets the stage for the events that are acted out in real time in the chat sections of the site.
The reason this is so revolutionary for the role playing world is because it provides a totally immersive experience. It is not simply a 2d or 3d world that an avatar is walking around in RolePages actually gives you an entire network, with a wide variety of features to allow you to tell your story.
It also allows a lot more people to engage in a much larger story, as you are not restricted by distance, or by room. The story can stretch out over continents using pictures, over time using blog posts, and into any dimension you can imagine using words, pictures, and videos.
