Why play RPGs? Why spend hours reading books and preparing for games? Why belong to a community that is both so hostile and welcoming at the same time?
Believe it or not it is a question I ask myself very often.
Why bother with a hobby in which a dissenting voice is shut down instead of welcome with healthy debate? Why am I in a hobby that still has strides to walk in terms of inclusivity and diversity? A hobby in which some attempts at said inclusivity and diversity are met with brutal opposition by people who refuse to widen their perspectives?
And, you know… sometimes I wish to quit.
But I don’t.
And i am sure I am not the only human being in this position. We keep going.
Jim and I explore the reasons why we are still here. And why we are likely to continue for a long, long time.
