#RPGaDay 2016 Day 26: What Hobbies Go Well With RPGs?

I think that reading and collecting comics are two hobbies that go well with rpgs.  Role playing games have rules and setting material that needs to be read.  Therefore it makes sense that someone who likes to read would be willing to slog through a 400 page book in order to play out novels of their own.  Role playing games have also been a medium that includes tons of art.  Comic books have used art and words to create imaginative worlds for a long time.  Comic books were one of the first places were I saw ads for role playing games as a kid.  Using art as inspiration for storytelling is a perfect example of why comics and rpgs go together.
