#RPGaDAY2018 1. What do you love about RPGs?

I’ve always loved books. I’ve always loved fantasy and science fiction. When I was about ten years old and I saw my first roleplaying game, I realized that RPGs were basically fantasy and science fiction books that you could play.

The artifact itself of an RPG (well, the most common conception of an RPG) is a tome that I can pour over, flipping through again and again, as an interface to a shared creative experience.

I love that.

Add in the shared creative endeavor, the lack of conventional win/loss conditions, and all the ephemera (dice, art, maps, etc.) and I’m sold. For life.
