I took up my hobby at age of 10 when I was at 4th grade. My friend introduced me to the world of RPG games. During breaks we were so bored and one day he came up with an idea of a game where everyone creates his imagined character and together we create a story.
When people hear RPG, they think of computer games. In fact, it has nothing to do with computer. To play RPG you need a blank sheet of paper, a pencil and few dices. It is basically a storytelling. You and other players together create a story. I enjoy it, because you have almost no restriction and you can be whoever you want. It isn’t also the waste of time, because this improves your imagination even better than reading books.
I’d recommend this hobby to everyone. It’s cheap, funny and let you forget about troubles for a moment.
