Each year we celebrate Autocratik’s #RPGaDay, where we spend a month celebrating RPGs, discussing what we love and what we love about them. Here are the responses of the TRF crew. Be sure to tweet, blog, or post your own with the #RPGaDay!
For August 26, what hobbies go well with RPGs?
Aser – I think reading and to other degrees consumption of other narrative media goes well with reading, as does history. The key is a love of storytelling and a desire to create or discover new stories.
John D. – Board games, reading comics, reading in general, to a lesser extent video games, writing, listening to podcasts.
Jonn P. – Creative writing is something I think goes well with RPGs. I’ve been in several games that made use of character stories written between session as cannon and would dread them for ideas. Seeing the internal dialog and hearing the story told from the character’s perspectives made them feel real.
Landan – I think for some people the painting mini’s works really well. If you draw or do illustration you can always draw your characters or group you play with characters maybe NPC’s your party has helped.
Megan – I think a love or stories and books. You can incorporate almost any creative hobby into RPGs though, that’s what great about them.
Mike G. – Reading, math, and music.
Patrick – Miniature war-gaming, reading, movies, writing, math. Anything that allows you to flex creative muscles really.
Phil – Dice collecting, doing math for fun, earning money.
