Page 2A -- The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder -- Thursday, Feb. 5, 2004 r ROLE PLAYING GAME - Rob Kerns from Gilmer County (not in the picture), Game Master, held a role playing game on Jan. 24, 2004 from 4:30 p.m. at an office of the Snack Bar in Glenville State College with his friends, Brian Moss (left to right), junior chemistry major, Travis Wells, senior biology major, Tonya Brady, junior, and Charles Miller, sophomore computer science major. The game doesn't need TV or game consoles, it only needs pieces of paper and players. The story and rules are made by the Game Master who leads the game. This kind of role playing game helps us be more creative and have more originality. They have the game meeting once a week in the evening.
