What Is Roleplay? – #2 DEATH!!! with CJ Eggett

Episode two of ‘What is Roleplay?! 
This episode we are joined by CJ Eggett to discuss DEATH!!!

  • How the threat of death or overcoming death is the driving force in most roleplay games.
  • How loss, madness and other missing pieces are analogues for death
  • Some more terms you’ll need to know, like Railroading (Being forced down a particular narrative path) and OSR (Old School Revival, a resurrence in simpler, more traditional Roleplay)
  • Damage in Dungeons & Dragons, and alternative ways of handling that in Tunnel Goons.
  • CJ’s obsession with weird puppet magic monsters in The Dark Crystal.

We end, as usual, with some live “actual play” to demonstrate the concepts we’ve discussed.
Today’s adventure involves death, a eulogy, and a player character not going to university
