Looking at the other sides of roleplay

This podcast is a great look at the other side of roleplaying, not the storytelling so much as boundries in game, social contracts and how to build the right expectations in your game. It is told from a thoughtful and interesting perspective, using some great game examples. It will help you as a player and a GM to ensure that everyone gets the best experience from your game.

An invaluable aid to your role-playing

Concentrating on the in-game emotional attachments that are formed between PCs and players, these very experienced players share their knowledge in such a way that it draws you into the conversation and leaves you wanting more! You’re bound to take away something valuable- a new insight, or an idea to use in your own gaming. Well worth a listen! 😀
