My hubby just wrote his first sci-fi book. He was going to write D & D adventures since he has many great ideas but changed his mind.
Can I ask what the book is and who's publishing it? You can send me an e-mail if you don't want to give out personal names in public.
In my opinion, he has spent way too much time and money on role playing in his life. He is in his 30s so I'm glad he's not hard core into it anymore.
The average RPG gamer spends $30 a month on his hobby. I can't tell you how much time, but one session a week for about 4 hours is common--and at over 30 years old, it's probably less than that.
I'm a cheapskate, so I made all of my hobbies pay for themselves. I took karate; I taught
karate. I played D&D, and my writing income and game store ownership put me way on the good side there.
