What is a Role Playing Game - RPG?
An RPG is a game wherein players take on the persona and narrative of a character in a fictional world. These games can be played through writing, verbal storytelling or physically. Most people think of the verbal type when they think of an RPG such as Dungeon's and Dragons.
Role Playing at Einstein's Workshop
• Teamwork • Creativity • Social Play • Problem Solving •The goal of the Role Playing Club at Einstein's Workshop is to give students a fun, safe, and structured place to explore imaginative play in a social setting. Students will be challenged to use teamwork and problem solving skills through narrative story telling and will be provided opportunities for creative development as they build and explore as a group.
Terms and FAQ
- What is the DM or Dungeon Master? The person who organizes and oversees the game. They conduct the narrative and guide the players through the adventure. In our club, the DM will be a teacher.
- What Are Dice Used For? Dice are used often to add a randomizing element to games. They are used most often when testing character abilities in the game.
- Isn't an RPG Just Fighting? A common misconception is that RPGs are all about defeating monsters. In fact, there are often puzzles to solve and places to explore - these elements will be especially present in our campaigns.
- What If I Miss a Session? We have ways of making sure that students can comfortably miss an adventure and not feel left out, but we do ask for your best possible commitment.
- Will Players Do Anything Besides Talking? As a maker space, we are going to be looking for opportunities to include makery elements such as scenery building!
RulesDungeons & Dragons is a social game and rules are an important foundation to good teamwork. Students must be able to follow the rules or they will be asked to disband from the party (leave the game).
- The DM Has Final Say: The DM is the absolute authority of the game. They work for the best interest of the group and have final say in any matter. There may come a time when a student does not like a decision, but overcoming curveballs is part of the adventure.
- Cooperate With Your Team: RPGs are a team experience. Students must be kind to, and work with, their team. There will be lots of discussions and disagreements and they must all ultimately reach a resolution to move forward.
- Be Appropriate: We want everyone to feel comfortable and safe. Inappropriate language and behavior during and apart from the game is not acceptable. Similarly, if anyone at the table is making a student uncomfortable, we encourage them to let us know so we can solve the issue.
- Be Flexible RPGs are an ever changing world, nothing is set in stone. Being able to adapt with your character and play is important for success! Being stubborn or difficult creates a negative experience for everyone.
