There have been many games that have messed me up. Like the time I wrote a break up with a fellow rper and sobbed like a baby during it. (Virginia+Alan 4ever)
But for tabletop games, it’s been rare. I felt a pull when the MC killed Mac’s father off in Monsterheart and then her mother but I do not think anything has messed me up like playing Over The Edge in FATE. In that game a play Gwendolyn Ruse, a 15 year old orphan leads another group of orphans. In the first part of the season it was her going through the world, distrusting adults. Second part it’s her regroup her group to then lose them.
She is stubborn, ruthless and angry. I do find it interesting that every one deems her as a fuck up when I attempt to remind them that she is a 15 year old orphan. Last game I wanted to cry as she then began to separate herself from her group since they blamed her for everything. The only family she knows. OH THE EMOTIONS.
A table top game might make me cry.
I never told you to treat me like a princess I want you to treat me like a dragon, cower in fear before me and get me expensive shiny things
I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.Roald Dahl (via isawtoday)
