That's great, Elleise! I'm in favor of RPGs to break routine smile

Which systems have you gotten into?

Great thread! I don't know much about RPG, but I enjoyed reading this. Are the characters in RPG ever accountants? Somehow I picture them all being high-fantasy types like in D&D (not that I know much about that either). So definitely you'll get your blacksmiths and brewers, but accountants...? smile

I haven't had any accountants yet, but Jay's got a great point. Once I had an incredibly educated blacksmith (several hours of preparatory research later). Haven't gotten to play a brewer but eventually.

Now to find a way to make the players require an accountant ally smile

Ha, ha! I would think you could totally get a lot of mileage out of an accountant NPC in that, say, the king is going to send a band of mercenaries out on a quest, but he sends the royal accountant along to make sure the mercenaries stay within the royal budget. If they don't, they forfeit their lives! And so the mercenaries are going to be trying everything they can to keep the accountant in the dark and distract him from the real action -- kind of like the troops during the Vietnam War when the press correspondents wanted to tag along and watch. laugh

That's a good idea. If not their lives then a portion of their pay. What mercenary wants to work for free? I didn't know that about the Vietnam War, actually. Interesting.

Today I got into an old shoebox and skimmed inventory of some old adventures, prep and characters. Even found some of my artwork! Nostalgia aside, many of these have never seen the light of day. Even among those that have, only a few players ran across them. It's time to recycle smile

How have you cared for your inner RPGer today?
