Imagine that someone
is telling you a story. One of the characters in the story reminds
you of yourself. As the story progresses, you begin to identify with
that character. You envision the character in your mind. You
listen to the words of the storyteller, and the world takes shape around
the character. In your mind's eye you see what they see. In
the story, they act as you would have them act. Your pulse quickens
as the the hero faces danger. Your heart weighs heavy as they experience
loss. You cry out in triumph at their successes. You are joined,
both in the real world and the imaginary by others such as yourself.
Together you form a group. Together you face the unknown. You
listen to the words of the storyteller, and you live the role.
There is something
unique about the roleplaying experience. It offers the player a chance
to escape from the pressures of the real world - if only for a short while.
It offers the player the chance to perform deeds of great daring and excitement
- if only in the imagination. It is a group activity in which the
Game Master and players work together to write a story. The GM writes
the plot. The players write the dialog.
I am the Game Master
for two different games. The following pages contain the stories
that my players and I have composed together...
- Horror Fantasy role-playing in the near future
- Science Fiction Adventure in the Far Future
I ran across the following links while perusing the newsgroups. This Uncle Figgy guy, really knows his RPG's!
