[meta] Talky Drama

Posted in: Girl Gamer,Meta-gaming by Ariel on March 29, 2009

laughter1I don’t talk much about the fun we have around the gaming table. Which is weird, now that I think on it. I’m not a fan of “talky dramas” — you know, those movies where everyone is all angst-ridden and all they do is talk! I like comedies and action. So why don’t I relate the fun we have at the table?

Of course much of the laughter is in-the-moment goofs on what is happening in-game and the set up for the punchline would probably be too much for any reader. I’d have this paragraph-long intro to explain a two second bit.

This week’s session was filled with lots of laughter and yet it was kind of the equivalent of a talky drama. It was all role play. We did not need our minis at all! That seems to happen sometimes as we end or begin a new chapter. “Here’s what happened while you were off fighting bad guys…..”

I am a ham — I love role play. I think our group does a good job of getting into it, too. We’ve been playing together so long now that we easily talk to each other in character and react appropriately to dialog in character. We’ve had serious arguments in character. When you read about arguments in the gameplay, you can bet that we really role played it out.

You gotta wonder sometimes what the WarHammer guys must think of us.

    Probably nothing. There’s no Warhammer players at GG, just 40k players.

    … and most of those 40k players have played RPGS before. Believe it or not, gaming isn’t just a girls’ thing anymore. =P

  2. Oh Jack, damn! I thought I was saying the right name for the game. What a girl mistake! OK, note to self: 40k, 40k, 40k.
