Games provide an opportunity to escape the pressures of day to day life, providing moments of unmitigated joy and companionship. We take this fun seriously and aim to creative inclusive and engaging entertainment for all. To encourage participation we aim to provide as much practical information as we can so you can get the most out of our RPGs and your games! We have broken this information down into:
If you're completely new to Role Playing Games (RPGs) or wondering what all the fuss is about, then our RPG Basics section is the perfect starting point. It breaks down what an RPG is and how to get started. You will also find out more about game characters, using dice and RPG rulebooks.
Have you already tried RPG's and are keen to enhance your skills? Then check out our Players Guide to learn how you can get more from your games. Playing is as important as being a GameMaster as players share equal ownership over the unfolding story. The more you play the more you will be able to add to the adventure. This section covers:
- Creating a compelling Character,
- Interrogating the Fiction,
- Being a fan of each others’ Characters,
- Leaving room for your Character to grow,
- Building connections with the other Characters,
- Sharing the spotlight with the other Players.
Have you been playing a while, or do you fancy trying your hand at being a Gamemaster? Being a Gamemaster (GM) might seem daunting if you’ve never done it before, but it’s easier than you think, and something we think everyone who plays RPGs should try at least once! Read our How to be a Gamemaster section to find out exactly what it takes to GM:
- Imagine a situation,
- Describe it to the other players,
- Ask them what they do,
- And let the rules determine what happens.
- Then repeat!
Over the coming weeks and months we will be adding to these sections to create an ongoing catalogue of information to help you get the most from your games. We would love to hear your feedback or suggestions over on Facebook, Twitteror Instagram.
