A delayed day 18 of #RPGaDAY 2020. Today’s prompt is ‘Meet’.
After a few bad experiences, I have decided to not play with people I do not know, unless someone I know and trust vouches for them. Not that I have experienced any harassment or anything of the sort (being a white dude is ‘easy mode’, also in RPGs) but because I just do not enjoy playing with a certain type of person.
But that also makes it harder for me to meet new people to play with, because my circle only expands at the edges. That is ok: there is a school of thought that states that bad gaming is better than no gaming at all, but I do not subscribe to that philosophy. I’d rather work on my scenario or read a rulebook instead of having a bad game.
