RPGaDay in August - August 6th: Ancient

We continue on with #RPGaDay in August.



Day 6 - Ancient.

This one is really...easy.

And I offer two thoughts on this.

People have been telling stories since the caveman first started carving images and tales into the rock walls of caves. Well, actually probably since we first learned to communicate with one another. That's how ancient storytelling is. We still have the need to tell stories even in the modern day, whether it's telling tales around the campfire, writing a blog or whatever of a story on-line, or sitting with friends and chatting and telling stories. Gaming is just another version or iteration of that *need* to sit around and swap campfire tales, and to be honest, it's a lot of fun, too! :)

And connecting to that thought, I love running roleplaying games dealing with the Ancients. Fantasy rpgs that take their basis on ancient Arabian, Persian, Greek, Roman and the like culture and mythologies, rather than modern European and Celtic and the like. Science fiction rpgs that have their roots in the same ancient mythologies, such as the Coriolis - The Third Horizon RPG, that also offer an interesting twist on said mythologies. That sort of thing.

And there you have this sixth post for #RPGaDay for August, 2019. Comments, thoughts, questions, etc. are all welcome, of course.
