Workshop: Play Unsafe – How Improv Can Change The Way You Role-play

Often, we treat roleplaying games like work. We buy shelves of thick books. We plan detailed adventures. We memorize rules.

Explore what happens when you throw away the serious stuff: when you stop working, stop planning and start playing.

I’m running a workshop for the Raleigh Tabletop RPG’s Meetup and I’ll be covering a more freestyle, risk-taking and creative way to play your characters.

Make roleplaying less like work, more like play.
Stop killing other player’s ideas and build on them instead.
Use status techniques to play your characters.
Put stories at the heart of your game.
Lots of ideas from the book Play Unsafe: How Improvisation Can Change The Way You Roleplay by Graham Walmsley
