I’m fascinated by tabletop RPGs, but I can never find anyone to play with. My mom once got me a Dungeons & Dragons fourth ed. starter set, but we ended up throwing it out because we weren’t getting any use out of it. It was just me, her, and my stepdad, who wasn’t into it. Two players and a dungeon master does not a proper campaign make. I tried and failed to connect with fellow roleplayers in person, and every place I look online has little or no activity by the time I get there, and what RPs do get started don’t go very far. Maybe it’s time to admit that roleplaying just isn’t in the cards (or dice) for me. I guess I’ll have to get off my tail, and start writing fantasy fiction.
