Weaving the World: Roleplaying Games as Spontaneous Story Generators 

Roleplaying games are a unique form of collaborative storytelling, as players explore an imagined world through the eyes of their characters. They are also fantastic inspiration generators for writers, weaving dynamic, spontaneous, and deeply immersive stories. 

In this seminar we will use writing prompts and dice rolls to create some basic elements of an imaginary world together, then create our own characters by choosing a few evocative details. In the second half of the session, we’ll dive into the world we created using a simple game and see what happens through continued story prompts. Participants will leave with a few options for games to play with friends and tips for playing games online, as well as ideas for writing their own games. No experience necessary!

Please note: This class is an online class. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
