Description Edit | History

From Editor's Introduction:

Issue #5 of Playground magazine explores what happens when we mix story and game. We are not interested in discussing whether roleplaying events can be stories or can be games. Most of they time they are a bit of both, and none of the above, which is what makes them so cool.
