Role Playing

It's Thursday, so it's time for my my weekly random question...

I saw this article in io9 last week. It has links to four of these. Here's one to give you a taste and entice you go click on the link...

And that got me thinking...

What if fantasy worlds had some sort of role playing games? Would the players be the nerds of the realm...or the leaders?


  1. Oh they would still be the nerds-highly intelligent as always but still nerds but long live the nerds!

  2. I agree with Birgit's answer.

    Love that clip. Now I shall have to click on the link.

  3. That was a cute clip; I'm going with the nerds; not sure why, but I think that is how it would play out.


  4. I think it would depend a lot on what kind of world it was. A place where strategy and planning attacks is valued would make the best RPG players the rulers, wouldn't it?

  5. Haha, I'd say the leaders. And if the end of the world ever comes, I'd say look for a gamer. They'll know exactly what to do to save us all!

    1. Yes, I'd like to think the gamers would rule that world.
