I don’t want to go to Empire this weekend. It’s not just about having a sore throat that I’ve had for weeks it’s about recognising that what I originally went to Empire for is not what I get now.
I went to Empire to roleplay with friends in a wider world. In some ways that never really happened. Their characters kept dying just as I was beginning to get to grips with the world. The group that we created is growing and changing and is in some ways simply a jumping off point for those of us within it to find our own games.
I go to roleplay with different people in a solid fantasy world now. I enjoy it a great deal but I don’t have that group of friends roleplay that I went for initially.
There is a new local system starting up in around a month and I’m hopeful about maybe getting to do that roleplay with friends consistently thing.
