    When I enrolled into college many decades ago I had never heard anything about roll playing games. It never occurred to me that it might be a thing. Well other than drama students working hard to play their rolls in front of an audience. I was amazed when I saw my first play there and I was impressed by how hard the students worked to make it as believable as they could.When I enrolled into college many decades ago I had never heard anything about roll playing games.

    It takes a lot of courage to play a character with completely different ideas and interests than you have. Imagine standing on the stage and arguing with another actor as to whether you're up to it. Our director overhearing us said there was no time to hunt up replacements and to make the best of it.It takes a lot of courage to play a character with completely different ideas and interests than you have.

    Let's just say that was the start of my interest in playing rolls. Roll playing came a little later.

    All you need is confidence in what you already have and the ability to find what you need.

    We had a good chat Monday night at Inspired Unreality with both Alan and Datum joining Vivian and myself. As happens with those two we drifted off of games and into philosophy.

    I like the artwork for the most part but I'm not fond of the fighting.

    We had a good chat last night about Science Fiction and Fantasy literature starting with a discussion about Science Fiction as a late nineteenth and twentieth century phenomenon where Fantasy literature encompasses all of literature going back to the earliest written words. Now they are often indistinguishable. Then we discussed the dystopian trend in Science Fiction. The Golden Age (thirties and forties) saw mostly optimistic science fiction stories but in the second half of the twentieth century starting with the New Wave through today there has been a darker trend with many dystopian and post apocalyptic stories. Then closing the chat we each discussed our first experiences in Science Fiction. Viv and I both started reading SF in the fifties. I mentioned A.E. Van Vogt and Robert Heinlein and Viv mentioned Clifford D. Simak, Andre Norton, and Ursula K. Leguinn. Megan started Science Fiction with the TV series Farscape. What a difference 40 years makes. Please post your introduction to Science Fiction and Fantasy in the comments.We had a good chat last night about Science Fiction and Fantasy literature starting with a discussion about Science Fiction as a late nineteenth and twentieth century phenomenon where Fantasy literature encompasses all of literature going back to the earliest written words.

    I worked at the library shelving books and after I read through all the SF in the children's area I started checking out the Science Fiction they had upstairs. Now I read on my Kindle using Overdrive so still a library patron.

    Books have always enthralled me. When I was approaching my teen years A well written story would keep me reading till I fell asleep with the book in my hand. Mother complained about it but she never denied me access to books. We lost my father when I was in 7th grade. It was a traumatic time for us but we survived. When I reached Jr.High School I volunteered to help with the school library. It was a great way to learn just how libraries operate and why books have to be shelved in the right place for things to run smoothly.Books have always enthralled me.

    I still read at night until I fall asleep. Sometimes I have to reread a page or two in the morning. And what am I reading now? The new N.K. Jemisin Hugo nominee, "The City We Became".

    Wow, just realized that this month marks 38 years since I graduated high school....
    I started playing D&D 6 years before that, so 44 years of D&D and I still can't get enough.

    I started roll playing in the early 70s which was very different than Gary Gygax's D&D. We convened in the Arkansas State Beebe Student Union when we had the time and picked miniatures from whatever was available. The rules were typed on letter paper and were mimeograph or Xerox copies.I started roll playing in the early 70s which was very different than Gary Gygax's D&D.

    Time sure races by, can't believe it's already May. I remember when I was a kid that the first day May meant that school was about out and summer fun was on it's way. I'm looking forward to summer even if only means a chance to see the grand kids now and then. They are growing up so fast. Our first grandchild to go to college will start this fall. Hope he enjoys this new experience.

    Hi ZDL, how are you? Sounds like you have been busy. We have been doing a little rearranging here. Seems like we do it every spring. Makes the house feel enough different that we enjoy the effort. Hope you have some time to enjoy the rest of the week.Hi ZDL, how are you? Sounds like you have been busy.

    Casting spells is difficult at it's best. It's impressive you can do it with your eyes.
