QuoteMany roleplaying games suggest one person become the group's gamemaster, but others encourage the participants to share that role.
QuoteAlthough the term "game" implies competition, most roleplaying games actually feature a cooperative relationship between the participants. A participant's enjoyment usually comes from imagining the details presented during play, contributing to those details, and socially interacting with the other participants. Roleplayers often say the only way to win is to have fun playing.
Quote from: RoyMost roleplaying games have the participants roll dice to see if a character's actions were successful, but others have the participants flip coins or make the best poker hands from a deck of cards. Other roleplaying games have the participants roll dice to see who has the right to narrate the outcome of a situation and let the narrating participant decide if the character succeeds or fails. Some roleplaying games don't use any random element.
