There’s Never Been a Better Time to Play Tabletop RPGs

I’ve been playing tabletop roleplaying games since the early 1980s, and now is hands down the best time to get into the hobby. The 5th edition of Dungeons & Dragons has become a mainstream cultural phenomenon. Streaming shows like Critical Role and Starter Kit have lifted the veil on how roleplaying games work. Celebrities are going public with their love of roleplaying. Online tabletop roleplaying is taking off, Kickstarter has enabled scores of high-quality games to get published, and the number of sophisticated gaming blogs and podcasts has soared. So whether you’re new to tabletop roleplaying, a lapsed gamer rejoining the fold, or a gaming veteran, this site is for you! Constructive feedback is always appreciated.
