RPGADAY2019 Day 2 – Unique


Welcome to RPGADAY2019 Day 2! The topic for today is unique and in this video I talk about 2 ways that make roleplaying games unique to me. 

The first one is the ability to create memories about something that didn’t really happen. Through roleplaying with friends we have been able to create such memorable stories that they keep coming up in conversations, almost 20 years later. 

The second one are the social connections roleplaying helps me to build. I’m an introvert and not much of a conversation starter. While practising BJJ I’ve noticed that I was very uncomfortable at international training camps to ask people to roll with me. Luckily a good number of people at those camps also like D&D and I’ve been the GM on a few occasions at those camps. What makes playing D&D so special for me is that when I sit down at the table to play a game, immediately everyone is my friend. And after a game of D&D I have no problem walking up to my players the next day and talking to them or asking them to roll. 

And to finish off RPGADAY2019 Day 2, I also included an item from my collection that I think might be unique. It’s the script for the Call of Cthulhu Spawn of Azathoth campaign by Keith Herber. The script are a bunch of loose pages under the working title Throne of Azathoth.
