First Tijme RPG Answered

Hello, I have an idea for an rpg game and am a novice in the game mechanics. I'd like to do it in the pen and paper format. Does anyone have any thoughts/help?



Let me give you an advice. Forget pen and paper format. RPG game or PC games is the thing where everything goes with input devices like keyboard mouse etc,, including game mechanics.

Play-test, play-test, play-test.

Write a bare-bones set of your rules, and a simple, short event or encounter. Run a group of friends through it, and make notes of issues as you go through the game, then get feedback off them.

Rewrite your rules, and repeat.
