What Kind RPG Experience You For
My most memorable role-playing experience was playing in a double-blind scenario( the players were split into two 2-man teams, each with an identical map, separated by a curtain. The gamemaster recorded the characters positions, and told the players what their characters could see and hear.)
The backstory was that we were two competing teams of mercenaries looking for a crashed satellite in a deserted town, but the bottom line was we were playing hide-and-seek. With guns.
And when I spell it out that way, it might sound kind of stupid, but the hundreds of hours I had spent in various dungeon crawls barely add up to a pale shadow of the hour or so I spent at that gaming table.
One could argue that what I've just described doesn't sound like a roleplaying game at all, but a very small-scale wargame. And one would probably be right. Then again, Role-Playing Games are the direct descendant of miniatures wargaming, so,whatever.
All I know is matching wits with another player whose only real goal was to kill my character was a lot more involving than going up a dungeon full of orcs controlled by an impartial referee.
