Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Roleplaying Online | Hey, I've been gaming offline for years. What difference can I expect?

Most rooms don't use any dice. Yes, it's true. And unless you were a limp-wristed Amber player before you arrived here, the diceless factor going to take some getting used to. How do you resolve combat, for one thing? Or interaction between players?

Well, first of all you're going to have to get used to a little give and take. If someone says they hit you with a sword, you shouldn't just assume you dodge. Consider their handle. If they're playing a master swordsman, chances are they did hit you. Think of this as a book, with you as one of the heroes. In any interesting book, the hero doesn't automatically succeed all the time. Be willing to fail once in a while if it will advance the plot.
