Tabletop Role-playing Game Sessions at CIL
Friday, 9th November 2018 – Centre for International Languages. In an effort to expose CIL staff members to gamification and the concept of tabletop role-playing games (RPG) in teaching and learning, a CIL RPG group was formed. The group is comprised of Dr. Noriha Basir, Ms. Farahhein Johari, Mdm. Yuziana Yasin, Mr. Azrizal Salleh, Mr. Bazli Mahmood and Mr. Khairul Hisham Jamalludin.
A tabletop RPG is a game where players play by verbally describing their actions using the theatre of the mind, and rolling dice to see if their actions succeed or fail. The game session is refereed by a gamemaster who narrates the scenario to the players and arbitrates the results of the dice rolls.
The group decided to play The Laundry RPG published by Cubicle 7 Entertainment. The RPG is based on the series of novels written by Scottish author Charles Stross. Today, the players decided on the characters that they will play as well as abilities and skills that they each excel in.
The game itself will begin in two weeks.
