PAKEX – Role Playing Games
At PakEX, we’ll be showcasing a range of Role Playing Games (RPGs) including Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder and Shadowrun.
RPG’s have been around for a long time and none are more famous than ’D&D’. When you break it down to the basics, we all played these games as kids – ever run around playing ‘cops and robbers’ at primary school? Well, you’ve played an RPG at its basic level.
The key ingredient to an RPG is a little bit of imagination. You’re no longer Sally, sitting at the table with your friends wondering if you can survive the social disgrace of eating the last piece of cake; you’re Snizzgit, a Skink warrior on an epic adventure with your friends – to get MORE cake.
RPGs help us exercise our creativity, we just use rules to make it a challenge (Snizzgit can’t regrow her tale in an instant, it takes a little time). We’ll also use a pen and paper to keep track of some information, and some dice to do the decision making for us. Unlike board games most RPGs will use a Game Master (known as a GM) to act as a guide for the playing group, decide if what you’re trying to do works or not, and play as all the bad guys.
From the Lovecraftian Cthulu mythos in “Call of Cthulu”, to the cyberpunk “ShadowRun”, or even an RPG set in the Amazon Prime series “The Expanse” ; you may just find the game for you at PakEX!
