One of the things that you see a lot online is this idea that every session of a role-playing game has to either be this fantastic, story driven epic or some sort of emotional rollercoaster – or else you’re wasting your time.
I’m going to tell you that if you’re up for that style of gaming then go for it. You’ll have a blast.
But you don’t have to always go that route. Sometimes it’s okay to just kill monsters, take their stuff, and get xp. You don’t need more motivation. You don’t have to have that story that changes your life. Instead you just need a break from this bullshit world; a break from the political shit show and a chance to unwind.
And that’s okay.
Just play your games and enjoy what you enjoy for a while. There’s time enough for everything else.
