I have been away from FRP for a while now, Warhammer 40k and family have kept me busy. DnD is now part of Americana, with references to it on TV and in print, it is very much larger than just a “brand name” it is a whole new type of entertainment. I’m not sure why I came to this web site and downloaded the play test. Something got me thinking about the game again. I have a feeling that a lot of people are thinking about it.
That being said what elements of the game as you play it make it difficult to include non-gamers? Think of people like your neighbor who invited you to his softball team, or the guys at work always talking about poker or fantasy football, your aunt who lives by herself and doesn’t get out much.
