Roleplaying games give players the opportunity to use their imaginations to live fantastical lives through their characters. They get to be awe inspiring wizards who manipulate arcane powers. Fearsome warriors with no equal on the battlefield. Galactic renown space-fighter pilots with reflexes so quick you don’t see them move until they are gone. Some players aim a little closer to reality, and while they aren’t something normally pushed upon high school students by their guidance counselor, they aren’t quite as fantastical as the setting they are playing in. Things like: Cowboy, Dolphin Tamer, or (my favorite) MixMaster.
