I'll give you a bit of an overview (:
RP stands for Role-Play.
What a roleplay is, is when you create a character, and write something like a story with another character. There are many threads here, featuring Wolves, Dragons, Foxes, and some humans.
For example, to begin, you fill out a form. The form usually looks something like this:
It may have some other elements added in, depending on the type of Roleplay.
Let's say you were going to join a wolf roleplay. You'd use the form to build the character, name it, give it a personality, and decide what it looks like.
Let's say you named your wolf Bone. You could post something like,
Bone crept through the forest, sniffing the air. He was quite the hostile wolf, a loner, and spent most of his time by himself. Snow drifted from the sky, landing softly on his black-furred pelt.
Roleplays have different levels; Some you can write very short replies, others you are asked to write longer ones. On WI, we only go up to Semi-Elite, which is approximently 3 lines or 20 words.
In reply to your post, If I was rping with you, I could repy something like that you said, only with my character. Let's say I have a wolf named Shadow.
Shadow bounded through the forest on light paws, her eyes bright and content. Today, like most days, she was in a good mood. After a few moments of trotting along, she spotted a black wolf prowling through the trees. Being the social butterfly that she was, Shadow bounded over to the other wolf. "Hello!" She barked.
There's a Roleplay section on WI (link here) where you can find stickies that go into more depth about Roleplaying, and also it shows the threads which you can join if you are interested. The official RP Rules and Regulations are here.
Hope this helps. Any questions, feel free to shoot me a PM. (:
