How Knights of Pen & Paper 2 leans into the D&D simulation

Knights of Pen & Paper 2 might not be the most accurate depiction of tabletop role-playing, but the changes it introduces over its predecessor are a step in the right direction. You're still in control of a team of RPG players — who, in turn, are controlling their own RPG characters — but there's more to do than just battle and take on quests. Randomized, more fleshed-out dungeons and a bigger emphasis on mechanics like skill checks and saving throws make it feel more like a traditional D&D experience, despite the fact that you're technically role-playing by proxy.

Check out the preview video above to watch Phil and me roll up a fearsome team of adventurers, take on a few odd jobs and save up money to buy a totally rad table hockey set for our den.
