Telling Non-RPers About Your Hobby


Recommended Posts

If I were to say 'roleplaying', most of the people I know would think D&D and not forum-based rp. So I just say I work on 'writing projects' with friends. Nobody really asks much further.

I definitely also lean into the "collaborative writing" aspect of it, or people DO tend to think TTRPGs. It's an interestingly difficult concept to explain sometimes, even though to me it's fairly straightforward. Sometimes I call it a writing game, but really I think I tend to avoid using "game" much at all? Like, it isn't NOT a game, but there aren't really winners and losers or anything necessarily... So even "writing game" can be a bit confusing.
