What is a Role-playing game?
In pen-and-paper Roleplaying games (RPGs for short)a group of people sit around a table to play a game and tell a story at the same time. One player, the Game Master, “runs” the game, preparing a scenario which is like an open-ended story. The other participants play the main characters in the story, trying to solve the puzzles and defeat the opponents that the GM has prepared for them. Dice, miniatures and other props are used to see if the actions of the characters are successful.
This is not a computer or online game. This is a book that you read to learn (in a few minutes) some simple and fast rules that you use during roleplaying sessions, sitting around a table with your friends.
