Ringworld Roleplaying: Following game outlines, players generate and then assume the personalities and physical characteristics of Known Space explorers. These explorers then face challenges and mysteries, as though in a Niven tale. During play, an additional participant, the gamemaster, interprets the Ringworld game rules and manipulates setting, time, the forces of nature, and living opponents. The players determine their explorers' actions; the game rules indicate in an impartial manner how encounters and combats are resolved. A Ringworld game session becomes a drama of successive dangers and triumphs, shared by all.COMPONENTS-EXPLORER BOOK: introduction, human explorer creation; pursuits and skills; game system; essays on Earth, the Belt, Canyon, Down, Gummidgy, Home, Jinx, Margave, Plateau, Silvereyes, We Made It, Wunderland; Kzin explorer creation and in-depth essay; Puppeteer explorer creation and in-depth essay.
