Day 19: What music enhances your game?
I don’t play music during my sessions. Mostly that is because I don’t have the infrastructure to control the music — though for online play, Roll20 allows uploading music files for use during certain scenes, but I haven’t used it yet. And it can be distracting, especially for people who are slightly hard of hearing: the added background sound can make it harder for them to hear what the other players are saying.
But if I ever get to run that Macross-inspired campaign, you bet there will be an opening and ending theme for every session!

It stands for RolePlaying Game. The first RPG ever released was Dungeons & Dragons, a bit over 40 years ago. (I'm assuming you know what Dungeons & Dragons is!) I play a lot of tabeltop RPGs, and have been doing so for 30 years now.

Ohhh, I've heard of D&D. That sounds somewhat interesting. Thanks for the info.

Wizards of the Coast, the publisher of D&D, has an "organised play" initiative, called the Adventurers League, where you can show up at a store to play for free. Every adventure lasts only one evening, and while you can keep coming back and have your character gain experience over time, you could also check it out just that one time to see if you like it.

I usually don't play anything with my games because I have the volume on very low to begin with, whatever the BGM is. :P

You mean you don’t have Kylie pumping out in the background..?

While I certainly can appreciate some good Kylie pop, I think it would detract a bit from the atmosphere to have it on while you're playing a medieval wizard during a tense negotiation with a faery prince...
