Merely Roleplayers
Merely Roleplayers is an improvised ensemble audiodrama - emphasis on the drama.The compere sets the scene. Each player roleplays one of the main characters, improvising their dialogue and action. And at suitably dramatic moments, we roll dice, using tabletop roleplaying game rules to see whether things stay under the players’ control - or escalate out of it. That way no one knows where the story’s going next: not you, not the players, not even the compere.We tell a lot of different stories, with one thing in common: we’re always chasing maximum drama.
