What is roleplaying? Roleplaying involves a game master creating a story line and a setting, and players making characters to be the key components. It’s sort of like acting, only there are no props, sets, or pre-written scripts, and because the story is described rather than actually doing it, it is up to your imagination to make it real! New players can join at any time. Our current game is The Palace of the Vampire Queen.
