You’d be right to ask why we would feature something like tabletop games here on Oemsie a travel and photography blog. Call it experience.

Tabletop role-playing games, RPG for short, is a form of role-playing in which the players describe their actions through speech. There’s normally a formal set of rules and guidelines which determine how to game plays out and what the characteristics are of each player. The game normally has a game master who describes the game environment and determines certain actions not determined by the rules, guidelines, and throw of the dice.
The most famous tabletop RPG is probably dungeons and dragons, which can be players by beginners but tends to be very involved and complicated for some.
