RPGaDay in August - August 13th: How Has Your Play Evolved?

We continue on with #RPGaDay in August.



Day 13 - Describe how your play has evolved.

Good question.

From a player perspective, I think it comes down to the fact that I started gaming as a 20-year-old and I'm now 63 years old. I like to think that I've matured as a gamer and that I've learned how to be a better gamer over the years.

As a GameMaster, I've definitely matured over the years, though I can still do some humour when I need to in-game, but my GMing has evolved beyond the idea that conflict is always physical combat. There are a lot of other types of conflict to be found (psychological and social, to name but two) and I find that I use various types in adventures to get the players going. My gaming evolution when running games has also led me to less of a Dungeons & Dragons mentality, to systems that are more adventurous in their approaches to the game and to seamlessness between game world and game mechanics. And yes, I've also evolved into a better storyteller and communicator when GMing and have come to embrace the newness of gaming with people I don't know at conventions.
