Introduce your scenes to your players by writing a context message.
Let's start from
What is a TTRPG?
Imagine a game where you play as a fictional character and interact as you see fit in an imaginary world guided by a game master. Decorate it with beers, pizza, cool friends, and we're good to go!
Think of text-based gaming as a wacky cousin of traditional role-playing! Players interact via messages, at their own pace. It's like playing correspondence chess, but with elves, dragons and a whole lot more imagination!
Tabletop Role-Playing Games
can be frightening and
Many people don't try TTRPG for various reasons. Text-based games are a good alternative!
I'm having trouble getting started because there are too many rules.
Since the game is not played in real time, take the time to learn and apply your own rules as you go along.
I have trouble with TTRPG, I'm not comfortable with improvisation and speaking.
Playing in writing makes it much easier to embody a character and to interpret it accurately and without barriers.
What's difficult is getting our mates around the table. It's not easy to fit in everyone's availability.
Play when you want, where you want. As it's asynchronous, you can play in the metro, at work or on your computer.
I can't find any more players, and I can't see myself playing live with people I don't know.
Meet online players from all over the world and embark on your adventure with much less apprehension.
Being deaf, role-playing is difficult for me to access.
Role-playing should be accessible to everyone, and text-based games make it possible and accessible to as many people as possible.
It takes a loooong time. Preparing a script takes a lot of time.
It's easier to think about your scenario when the game isn't in real time.
