I wouldn't call Second Life an "RPG"... not in the classic sense, anyway.

wow. that sucks. alot of people give runescape a bad reputation. its not that bad. especially because it is free(ish). i actually forgot about it for a while, and have my beginner account that i am starting to use again.

runescape is okay for a while, but it has so much repitition that you get bored.

There,s a few actually, game wise that run on the Mac. But theres also Second Life, and recently IMVU just released a new Mac version, but those are just IM clients.

Second Life is most definitely available for Mac.

Heroes of Newerth is another fantasy RPG...thing.

Second Life has a Mac version.
It does not require a cell phone.
It is not a RPG.
It is a social hangout site.
There are games within SL that claim to be RPGs but the last time I checked (several years ago) they were not worth bothering with.
