We’re back with our “Let’s Talk About…” series! Check out the previous chats here.
Let’s Talk About…: any RPG
I have a better idea. Let’s talk about every RPG. They’re great, aren’t they?
Actually, this is a nice time to start hinting at something I’m putting together for next year. It’s so huge that it’s going to take two people to do it, so BadgersAndBowties will (finally) be rejoining me here as we undertake a massive RPG project while balancing work and other obligations.
One of my favorite things about RPGs is the RP part. I mean, the G part is pretty important, too, and sometimes people like to throw a J on the front and they certainly have a place, as well, but forever and always the RP is going to be my love.
Cary from Recollections of Play once mentioned that sometimes in order to find perspective in our own lives, it takes stepping out of it and living as someone else for a while, and RPGs do just that. The more we experience, the more insight and empathy we may develop, and thus the more perspective we may bring to the table for new or complex situations.
So… the more RP, the more XP… IRL.
What a reason to play, right?
And don’t forget: keep an eye out here for more RPG goodness in 2018!
Do you play RPGs? Are they of the J variety? Do you have a preference regarding the RP or the G part? What is your all-time favorite RPG? What do you love about it? Let me know in the comments!
