What is RailgunITP anyway?
RailgunITP is a Free Form Role Playing (FFRP) universe that was developed, and is currently populated by, members of the Giant in the Playground forums. The setting and style of the game are based primarily on the To Aru Majutsu no Index/To Aru Kagaku no Railgun universe, a serial manga, series of light novels, and anime by Kazuma Kamachi and published by ASCII Media Works. RailgunITP originated as a spiritual twin and successor to the NarutoitP game in that both of them are alternate universes of each one's canon where people can play their own characters and create their own stories. A simple idea that evolved into full-on games and communities.
Currently, all of the Espers described in the Index/Railgun series have been replaced with player-imagined characters, though some similar spots have been filled in by player created characters. There's still a Tokiwadai Middle School for example, but it no longer has the same students or teachers. There's still the (in)famous Level 5's but they are different characters and there may even be a different number of them. So on and so forth.
