Literally one of the hells in the Internet. This is an internet forum for the discussion of anything that's related to role-playing games but just like most internet forums, they can deviate from that and discuss other things. However, most of the members of that particular forum seems to hate pretty much everything, say curse words all the time, accuse fictional characters of being things that they dislike, and regularly use racist or antisemitic words all the time. Even the moderators are pretty terrible as they also seem to unable to stop the insanity of the forums and they sometimes even join in the racism, cursing and trolling. Overall, the place is one of the literal hells of the Internet. Seriously, it's on par with youtube comments, gamefaqs message boards and comic book resources in terms of stupidity and insanity.
What's the definition of the word rpgcodex?

Hell itself.

The RPG Codex is a forum for butthurt edgy teens who are "too cool for mainstream RPG's". The result is that they spend all their time playing old RPG's (but not that old) whilst slandering new ones (which they still play anyway). They stalk developers and modders such as Tessera and Wesp5 (who are all apparently German for some reason according to them) and have a weird obsession with many Bioware developers who they delve into the personal and private information of. The stalking of Tessera and Wesp5 has continued for 7 years by several insane individuals who use the Codex.

90% of the posters on the forum could have their own entries on Encyclopedia Dramatica] due to how insane they sound. The Codex also hates the RPG Watch which is actually the real place for sophisticated RPG discussion and not the Codex where you're more likely to find a racist or homophobic thread.

Once upon a time, the RPG Codex was considered a serious place back when developers from Bethesda and Bioware posted on them but after being threatened with rape (yeah, seriously) by the basement dwellers there, the developers decided they had enough abuse from the neckbeards and blocked off all communications with the 'dex. The result is that the Codex has been butt mad ever since towards Bethesda and Bioware.
In truth, the Codex is the place you'd want to go if you want to gossip about developers and their private lives because you're a weirdo. Good luck having a civil "sophisticated" debate about an RPG though since most of these idiots try to act like /b/tards but actually come off sounding more retarded.

The RPG Codex is now the laughing stock of the RPG community and no one takes them seriously anymore.

"Forum for butthurt edgy teens" is a good summary of the place. The amount of racism, homophobia and antisemitism you'll find in one thread on the forum is a lot but strangely, the Codexers get defensive when you call them out for these things citing the fact that there's two moderators: Jaesun (aka Gaesun), a gay moderator and Infinitron, a Jewish moderator who are on the forum and that this somehow means that the place still isn't a gathering ground for scum because two mods there happen to belong to two of the groups that are often attacked on the forum. We have no reason to believe that these two nutjobs belong to these groups anyway just because they say so. It should be noted that Codexers often pretend to be people who they're not. It's also possible these moderators are simply self-loathing (this would fit with 40% of the Codex's users, the other 40% are retarded with the remaining 20% being clinically insane).

The first definition of the Codex on this site had already been posted on the forum by a user who goes by the name of Telengard. Naturally the response was to be as expected with the first few posters being amused before everyone else responded in two ways:

-Self loathing users responded to segments of the first definition criticizing it whilst pretending not to be buttmad over it.
-Overused forum jokes by the retarded users. Not sure why they posted them. Possibly to reinforce the negative stereotype of Codex users? They came off sounding retarded though.
If you want to piss off a typical Codex troll, there's several ways to do this:

-Call Skyrim the best (and most successful RPG to date). Mention how it's the best selling RPG in the history of RPG's alongside Diablo 3.
-Say that Obsidian is but an speck of paint compared to Bioware who have existed for longer and made more successful RPG's whilst Obsidian's success has come from Bioware itself and Bethesda due to them making sequels to their games.
-Say that Chris Avellone hates the RPG Codex or call him a cunt. The Codex loves this guy (strangely) and will not take any criticism of him well.
-Mention how David Gaider owned Roqua in the "Bioware outsource to India" thread and later "Warden" in other threads on the RPG Codex when he used it years ago.

-Mention how the Codex sucked Gaider's dick before he left, becoming butthurt at his departure.
-Dis Obsidian Entertainment.
-Bash any old RPG and watch as butthurt pursues.
-Call any mod's favorite game shit and watch as you get banned.
-Mention how most of the posters there really haven't played any of the Gold Box RPG's and are just hipsters who like to pretend they have (this is probably true for a lot of them).
-Insult DarkUnderlord or Vault Dweller, two mods who are on the Codex.
-Call Age of Decadence a Fallout rip-off (this will really get the Codexers butt mad as it's made by Vault Dweller and Codexers regard it as the official RPG of the Codex.)
-Say Age of Decadence is vaporware. (Which it probably is)

A forum truly consisting of butthurt children, they have made a thread about the definitions on this page. To add to TheLulz's list of trolling these guys:

-Link this page to the RPG Codex and watch the freaks come out of their holes.

The RPG Codex's only real recognition will be that they donated some money towards Divinity Original Sin alongside the RPG Watch. They're proud that they appear in the skippable intro that nobody ever watches, as if anyone cares about their shitty little forum.
The RPG Codex, a forum used by kicked-out newfags from /v/ who are too retarded for /b/.

Judging by the downvotes on the other definitions here, some fags from the Codex are butthurt.
