I believe that it is important in times like these to take an inventory of all the good things that you are grateful for in life. I am grateful for my family. I am grateful that I grew up with a gamer father and brother who introduced me to wargames and rpgs. I am grateful that I have friends to game with.
I am especially grateful that this hobby is being passed on to a younger, creative generation. I was recently talking to a former student who is a member of the game club at our school. This student was telling me about the Dragon Ball Z and Naruto campaigns that they were designing using the D&D5e rules. How awesome was this? Here was the new generation of gamers doing what rpgs were designed to do, creating custom content and stories.
I am grateful to watch kids participate in the tabletop rprg hobby and make it their own. Creativity is one of the most important forces in the universe, and I am glad that our hobby fosters it. Gamers, keep creating cool stuff!
