So you have been intrigued by Pen and Paper Roleplaying all your life.
You have not been able to convince to try out pretending to be a wizard.
Also you have no clue where to start.
This is for you then.
I have been hosting pen and paper role playing sessions for 12 years now and have done so in several different systems such as Call of Cthulhu, DnD 3.5e, DnD 5e, Savage Worlds, Stars Without Number, Shadowrun and Fragged Empire.
What I want to give you is the following:
1) The arguments on how to convince your friends to join.
2) The skillset to host a session in any given system without much of a problem.
3) The courage to actually try 1) and 2).
[If the attendance is less than 3 people (not including me) we might play fighting games.]
