Yes, you read the title of the post right. Warning, this is a nerd out post.
Every Saturday night, Josh, some close friends, and I gather together in character to go on adventures and create amazing memories. As our journey progresses, we continuously run into a lot of struggles. Not so much in the game, but in real life. Whether it is from someone not being to get their voice in, or we have real arguments. It can help you grow as a person.
I have overcome a lot of my social anxieties this way. I feel more comfortable and confident in what I say, and create relationships. Currently I am role playing a Half Orc by the name of LauraGash, but she prefers to be called Laura. She is joined by another Half Orc named Wulfrun, a Half Elf named Rowan, a Human named Al, and a Dwarf named Hazumir. Our current quest is to discover what is in the North and why were we recruited to make our way up there.
We are about 2 to 3 sessions away from finishing this camgain, and then we will start up a new game.
I truly do love this Tabletop RPG. It has opened my eyes to a whole new world, where I can be free to imagine a world that can come to life for a few hours. I say if you ever wonder about trying it out, gather some friends together and go on an adventure!
