Roll With It

Posted by Ian Jones on July 6, 2007

Dice

Dice are essential to gaming.

Without dice determining the physics of the fantasy world, role-playing games would just be nervous men boasting, like they do in pubs.

Except in a pub no-one has a character sheet saying what they are and aren’t capable of, unless you count CV’s. And no-one takes a CV to a pub. Unless they’re an itinerant barman.

Anyroad, CV’s are filled with lies, but a character sheet is all truth. This is yet another reason why playing games is easier than meeting people.

    Except gaming like he’s talking about is ABOUT meeting people! I’ve been people that way for 35 years!

    I think Ian defines friends as friends and anyone else as people.
