Each of these two types have different roles in the game. Players
simply need to make and control one character, known as their player
character or PC. They then play and control their character in the
world and stories constructed by the GM.
The GM (and there should only be one) is in charge of the game, and it
is their job make sure the game works. They control all characters
other then the PC's (non-player characters or NPC's), and they also
plan out the world and the basic stories in it. In the event of a rules
dispute or gap, the GM decides what happens. Due to the GM being there

rolls are described with expressions such as “3d4+3,” which means “roll
three four-sided dice and add 3” (resulting in a number between 6 and

type of die to use. Any number after that indicates a quantity that is
added or subtracted from the result.
