Barpee, a mashup of the word "bar" and the literal pronunciation of the acronym "RP," is a term used to describe roleplaying set in a bar, pub, tavern, inn, or similar social drinking and eating establishment. Often affectionate, the term is typically more specific to incidental freelance roleplaying where players go in-character to randomly interact with other bar patrons rather than roleplaying in a structured setting wherein a plot guides the characters to a bar setting for more meaningful activities.

The Rising Sun tavern is an example of a very popular location for such spontaneous bar-style roleplaying. While game sessions take place in taverns and inns all across the game map, the Rising Sun is the most popular and, because of its popularity and attraction for new and inexperienced players, also the most infamous of barpee settings.
