Dice and Dungeon Masters
This is a role-playing game about playing a role player. In the course of this game you will get to define your game master/dungeon master, the game you play, your dice, who plays at the table with you, your future, and the story of the game. Will you rise to become a paragon of table top role playing or fall into failure and obscurity, doomed to be haunted by the dice rolls you will never make?
In the course of your role playing life you will get to hold down a job, perhaps school, deal with parents, significant others, and all the other monsters of madness that lurk away from the table. You will be able to play as any gender and any sexuality both at the table and within the story of the game itself.
-Roleplay as a role-player.
-Customize not only your own character, but also many other characters throughout the game.
-Play both the game within the game and the game of the life sim of the real world: hold down a job,
pay bills, go to school, date, practise religion(s), and, of course, game.
-Enjoy simulated alternate reality fandoms.
-Play as any gender and any sexuality.
-Experience the life of a tabletop gamer in all its good and all its evil.
-Enjoy a mostly optional metagame plot with many different dimensions.
Please note that this game is very alpha; many of the planned features either don’t exist yet, have bugs, or are incomplete. That said, after careful consideration, I decided that now was the time to share this game with the community. I originally started work on this game a few years back so some of the lingo and pop-culture references may be a little dated though hopefully still good. As for myself, while I don’t roleplay as often these days as I’d wish, I still do upon occasion (albeit down from the playing all night every night I did during high school and early college) and I have played with dozens or (if one includes my game play at conventions) hundreds of tables in my own career of dice slinging; I have been very fortunate to play with a wide assortment of groups and though I may have not played with legendary figures of the game I have played with those that have upon occasion. While some of this alpha demo may be a bit rough, this game is one of the projects I feel a lot of energy for and hope that it will level up soon.
