You may win renown or you may die alone in the trackless wilderness. Whatever your fate, your story will your own to tell. In Dragon Age you make the choices and try to survive the consequences.
What is tabletop roleplaying?
Dragon Age is what’s known as a tabletop roleplaying game, so named because you usually play while sitting around a table with your friends. The action is similar to computer roleplaying games. You can play a character who goes on exciting and dangerous adventures in a fantasy world. The difference is that you do it all with your imagination instead of a computer. One person must be the Game Master (GM). The GM presents the story and acts a referee. Those remaining are the players. Each player makes a character and roleplays him or her in the ensuing adventures.
