An echo from our origins
Rife with History
Role playing has it's roots so far back in our history that we cannot event remember when it began. The first and most used way of learning social roles, contexts and reactions, this function is even observed in other species. We have even considered it as a high form of art for quite a while now.
Role playing is often depicted as the act of interpreting a character, be it a real of fictional one. Today, we see that is it much more than that. It is a form of development that enables us to practice and learn about our environment. It can be used in therapy as a form of analyzing situations and reactions. It can also be, as we see here, a game.
A life lesson
Starting from a very young age, children all start to role play, whether this be together or alone. Be it playing "cowboys and Indians", having a tea party with empty cups or imagining being in a movie, role playing allows children to build their own universe. They are all powerful and free to do what they please, with only their imagination to limit them. They develop their creativity, confidence and bonds through role playing. It prepares them for life.
However, role playing, contrarily to what some may believe, is not only a children's game. Many people chose to make living out of the activity, we call it acting, or preforming, and many other names as well. Others use role playing as a technique to succeed in their lives, but all of us use it daily.
Have you ever imagine the perfect comeback that you would have said in your last conflict? Have you ever imagined your future self or life ? Haven't you ever pictured yourself as a hero ? If so, then you are already a role player.
What we know today is that there are a multitude of benefits that result from role playing games. Be it in child development, preparation for real life situations, or simply to become a better person, role playing is an unquenchable source of useful experiences.
Tabletop role playing games
D&D, as it is often called, is the most commonly known tabletop role playing game. The gist of it is simple: several people meet up in order to build an epic story in which they become heroes in a fantasy universe. For a few hours, everyone has a chance to forget the real world and their problems and lose themselves in a mystical world, the secrets of which are only know by the game master.
Together, the renegade group of adventurers will face many dangers, fight ancient and terrifying monsters and explore dark dungeons, seeking out lost artifacts and magical treasures.
Together, each player grows attached to their characters and as the sessions go by, strong friendships are forged both in the game and around the table.
Together, role players live impossible lives, saving the world from powerful evils, setting out on incredible journeys, and sharing breathtaking moments.
