Do You Like to Play?

Well, do you?

It’s something I’ve been thinking about a good deal in the last few months. With the dwindling of my free time and the increase in personal responsibilities I’ve really needed to prioritize what matters most in my life at this time. It’s hard. Harder than I thought it would be. As much as I wanted to continue model and photography courses in SL, as much as I  wanted to keep role playing in-world, it’s come to a point where I can either RP or sleep. Where I can make time for a weekend class online or, you know, eat food with my family and start prepping dinner for ten at a reasonable hour on Sunday.

I hope it won’t always be this way.

One thing I have started to do, however, hearkens back to most of my teenage and adult life. I have started role playing with my friends again and, gosh, it has been amazing! And I don’t mean in Second Life, which another kettle completely (and one I loveloveLOVE), but over Skype and once in a while. The sort of Role Playing Game (RPG) that has character sheets and dice; pencils and erasers and more books than I can conveniently fit on my desk at one time. I was a Dungeon Master at age 16 and I still wear that distinction with pride.

For the uninitiated, tabletop role play might sound daunting, nerdy, and dauntingly nerdy but let me share a little secret with you: it really doesn’t have to be either one. In its simplest form, role play is storytelling with a problem solving component; you take on the persona of a character (a dashing rogue, a burly warrior, or a crafty wizard for example) and, with the help of your Dungeon Master (or Game Master for other non-D&D games), you solve puzzles, battle enemies, and use your wits to make the best use of your character’s abilities throughout the story. It can be SO MUCH FUN.

I see now that I’ve already written more than intended in this post and for the wall of text, I apologize. RP is a subject very close to my heart and if you -are- interested in learning more about it I’ve snuck a great little video into the bottom of this post. Trust me, it’s awesome.
