What is a tabletop roleplaying game?
A tabletop roleplaying game is an interactive storytelling game and experience for a group of players, one of whom takes on the role of Game Master (referred to as the Game Mother in ALIEN: The Roleplaying Game). The Game Mother directs the gameplay, and each other player assumes the role of a character within the fictional setting described by the game and the Game Mother. The Game Mother describes the setting and the scenario and the players describe the actions that their characters take in response. Through this process, players navigate a multi-faceted, dynamic story.
