how would i make a member database like these sites:

http://www.neopets.com
http://games.swirve.com/earth

I want to make an RPG on my site, so i need a way to have members login to start playing, so the game knows who they are.

Well first you will need to decide on what server-side language you would like to use such as PHP, ASP, PHP, JSP, PHP, Perl, PHP, etc.

And no, there is not bias towards PHP here. :D

Once you have a language in mind you will also need to design a database to handle things such as storing the users information, logins, etc.

Here is an introductory tutorial on working with mysql and php:

Or if you don't wish to learn mysql and php then it might be best to go with prewritten scripts and modify them to suit your needs:
