Tabletop Role Playing Games
So you want to play Dungeons and Dragons -- or any tabletop RPG, really -- but you, like me, are broke and can't afford all those books, and a ton of dice, and minis, and maps, and even more dice.
This isn't a post about how terrible Dungeons and Dragons is -- I think it's a fine game system for a specific kind of role playing campaign.
Somebody having to step away from a recurring session of Dungeons and Dragons is something every party will have to contend with eventually.
Tabletop Role Playing Games have really seen a bit of a resurgence lately, thanks to programs like Critical Role, Stranger Things and The Adventure Zone.
Okay, so you've decided you want to create your own world in your weekly tabletop game.
Okay, so you're running a D&D game.
I'm old, and I've been at this hobby for a while.
