You could do anything tonight: round up some friends, meet new ones, go anywhere, and enjoy any form of entertainment. But no… you choose a roleplaying game. Not just any roleplaying game, but The World’s Greatest Roleplaying Game. You are the moral compass, the firm hand gripping the sword, and the keen mind manipulating powerful spells, guiding the heroes in the worlds we create together. You are a player. You are all players.

The World’s Greatest Roleplaying Game: The Game is a tabletop roleplaying game about players playing a game of 5e. Each player chooses a player type, or playbook, from those provided to represent some of the most common types of 5e players around the world.

Each playbook provides players with a move triggered by an action in the 5e game that allows various…well, let’s be honest. Cheats.
You can choose a playbook best suited to your own personality or play style. You can choose a playbook that’s the opposite of your normal play style. Or you can be tactical and choose the playbook that best augments your 5e character’s abilities.
This is just one article found in our quarterly zine, The World's Greatest Roleplaying Game: The Zine. Merging indie RPGs with the 5th Edition of... you know.
