Two posts left and this one kind of has me stumped. Excellent.
Well, let’s see.
I think it’s easier than ever to connect and share your experiences, to engage with other people and build an RP community around yourself.
I’ve had to do this when I emigrated, and whilst I’ve moved again and latched on to a new community, the group I started is still going strong and playing together.
It’s easier than ever to find a group of people and start a game.
Between Facebook groups and events, apps and websites like Meetup, as well as all the old stuff like noticeboard, college groups and so on, it seems like there’s enclaves of the hobby everywhere.
With the huge blogging and writing community, it’s even easy to get a fix if you’re not playing, just browsing ideas and examples of play and homebrew ideas.
And when you get really stuck, YouTube and Twitch streamers to watch or Discord servers to join to play-by-post or to find a voice game are great.
I’ve managed to keep playing during the coronavirus by joining a group on Roll20.net and using Zoom to carry the voice call.
That actually starts soon, so I should sort myself with some food and get set up!
