About This Subreddit

Epic sagas, dastardly backstabbing and emergent metagaming. This subreddit is not about describing prescribed game plots. It is a place to recount unexpected, significant, or humorous events that have happened in-game. Creative problem solving. Unexpected interactions. Sweet revenge.

Both computer gaming stories and pen & paper RPG stories are welcome here.

Post and User Flair

'Story' flair vs. 'Tabletop' or 'Video Game' flair Most tales explain the game mechanics or refer to the game and players. 'Story' flair is for tales written as a narrative account - if a post reads as if it's from a novel and you cannot tell it's a game, then it's a 'Story'.

User Flair You may choose a suggested flair or edit your own flair.
