A simple trip through the woods takes a sinister turn as you find yourself trapped in a haunted hotel. You have until sunrise to escape, before you are trapped forever. Will you find the secrets that lie within, or will you become the newest residents?
What is a Tabletop RPG?
Short answer, it’s like improvised storytelling.
A tabletop RPG (or Roleplaying Game) is a type of Roleplaying game where the participants (Players) describe the actions of their characters through speech, similar to a radio drama.
The group consists of a GM (or Game Master), and the Players (collectively known as a Party).
What is a GM, and what do they do?
A GM’s – or Game Master’s – job is to narrate everything, from the locations, to the NPCs (Non-Player Characters, characters the Party doesn’t control), and everything in between. It is also the GM’s job to keep the story moving.
In short, they are the omniscient god of their world.
What is a Party, and what does it do?
The party is the collective name for the group of players, not including the GM. Their job is to play the part of their characters, interact with the world around them, and ultimately complete the game.
What should I expect to see in this game?
Think of this as a mystery improv story. The GM will discribe the location, as well as anything of interest, then the Party will interact with the area – along with any NPCs in that area – trying to figure out the answer to the mystery. At many points in this story, the players may roll a dice to decide the outcome of a situation. Depending on the result, the players will either succeed, have a mixed success, or fail
Note: Although this story has been planned out by the GM, and some of the lines are scripted, it has not been practised, and none of the party know what to expect. What you will hear is 90% improv.
