Zhiro would know, after all.
Recently Scott Kurtz (PVP & Table Titans, Kris Straub (Chainsaw Suit & Brood Hollow), Molly Lewis, Stepto and Greg Bilsland sat down with Greg Bilsland of Dungeons & Dragons R&D department to playtest an adventure called “Mines of Madness”. They recorded the entire thing and are releasing the night’s shenanigans in podcast installments. And they are hilarious.
Not only are they funny, but they’ve also rekindled the Role Playing embers in my heart. I realized how much I miss sitting at the table, dice in hand and friends on either side as we launch into adventures of the mind. The companionship, the laughter, the held breath as the dice are cast, the cries of commiseration or victory at the results. I’ve been so busy lately that it’s become one of many things I just “don’t have time for,” but listening to these podcasts made me realize that no matter how busy I am, role-playing is something I NEED to make time for. So this morning I dusted off my 7th Sea source books, got out my Game Master binder, and started weaving my wicked webs. I won’t be starting any adventures right away, but I’m making a plan to have an adventure by mid-to-late June. There are swashes to be buckled, and I shall not leave them undone!
What do you make time for, and what makes it worth it?
