I like role playing games, as you may have gathered from past blog posts. I like them because they are (usually) designed to stimulate the imagination, allowing the players to create their own story while having a little fun along the way.
Granted, I never really got a lot of chance to play many role playing games (or, RPGs if you will). Growing up, I lived in a neighborhood without a lot of kids my age, even fewer who were into role playing games. But I liked reading about the rules, the character generation, the game play. And, over the years, I have read about a lot of different games, from way back when to the present day.
What sparked me to think about this is my completion of the rule book for the latest RPG set in the Marvel universe, Marvel Heroic Roleplaying Basic Game, and how the word “basic” in the title is highly misleading.
