If you are rooting around this website, you probably know what a role-playing game is all about already...
... but have you ever tried to explain what it is that you do to a non-gamer, or even worse, your Mom?
Or are you the sort of person who quite likes it that someone has made the effort to distil out the fundamentals of what is going on. After all, virtually every RPG core rulebook I've opened has a section on "What is role-playing" - someone must think it's a good idea.
So here is a very clear distillation of the core nuts and bolts of how our beloved hobby works. Even if you are an experienced gamer, even if you are accustomed to telling non-gamers what it is all about, you may find it of interest... because it is a clear and focused description of what goes on during the course of a tabletop game - and more importantly, WHY.
If you like to see processes described, have a look. If you have curious friends, pass them a copy (it comes at the right price!).
Who knows, you may garner some converts! Be ready to run an introductory session...
