I think the world of comic books and the world of tabletop RPGs go hand in hand. The only thing that might be more iconic than a carefully wrapped 1st edition of Action Comics #1 may be a classic 20-sided die. And the most famous (or infamous, depending on who’s asking) would be Dungeons and Dragons, a game I’ve only been introduced to relatively recently.
The game itself is simple enough to learn. But the big pull for me is the stories that evolve from the table and the culture around it. In the short time I’ve been playing, I’ve had spectacular successes and failures (more of the latter), and for me, that’s the point. Whether I’m playing with friends, people I don’t know, or even running a game, the story that is born at the table is a special kind of magic known only to those who are there.
