Why You Should Play Tabletop Role Playing Games or: How I Opened Up And Became A Better Person By Playing Pretend Superheroes
The podcast I do with my friends, @rolltobreathe , has become a huge part of my life and a very important thing for me. Tabletop Role Playing Games are fun and engaging and challenging and bring people together and they’ve made me a better person. They are Important.
I never really roleplayed.
I can’t remember a time where I didn’t know what Dungeons & Dragons was. I always knew that it was the Extremely Nerdy Thing that only Extreme Nerds play. A handful of dorks in a basement all around a table rolling dice and shouting spells. Why would anyone ever play that?? Board games are just shitty versions of video games. Maybe it would have appealed to me more if I really understood roleplaying, but aside from the couple of times I entered a Yahoo IM Roleplay Chatroom as a young teen, I never really roleplayed.
