its a performance

An interesting way to look at role playing games, less about the game and more about the shared performance to create an experience.

When everything falls into place, a group can forge a series of dice rolls into a collaborative improvised scenario, and a story is born. The unease I felt when I started playing wasn’t confusion – it was performance anxiety.
