What is an Actual Play?

An Actual Play is a type of content in the realm of Tabletop Role-Playing Games (TTRPGs) where a game session is recorded and shared, typically via audio or video formats. It’s characterized by its raw and unedited nature, capturing the authentic dynamics, interactions, and unpredictability of a TTRPG session.

What is a Replay?

A Replay in the context of Tabletop Role-Playing Games (TTRPGs) is an edited and curated version of an Actual Play. It can take the form of a written story or a narrated story, delivered by a single individual. The Replay focuses on providing a streamlined narrative experience, emphasizing story arcs and character development, and is edited for clarity, pacing, and dramatic effect. It’s a way to relive the TTRPG session in a more polished and engaging format.
