Now this is a decent question that I have to temper myself from writing four hundred pages on. There are so many hobbies that can be included here so I am going to try and limit myself to three. Let us begin!
Making maps is such a fundamental thing in an RPG. I used to make maps in the form of flow charts but since I got introduced to people the likes of Matt Jackson, Glyn of Monkeyblood Design and Dyson Logos I have found out that cool looking maps are in reach! These guys are so very helpful and some even have tutorials online about how to do bits and pieces. I now have many journals at hand all the time so when the urge hits me I can leap on it!
I make it a hobby of collecting the coolest ever journals. Really, I love them and many of the ones in my collection are from locals that just have the knack. This is not one that I have actually partaken in yet – I like the mystery behind the process, but it is one I am very interested in.
Why? Dice bags. That is why. My store has one or two people that now locally make dice bags for me and I think that is totally awesome. Sewing is a handy hobby it seems.
Honestly, I actually struggle to think of a hobby that is NOT good with RPG’s. After all, every skill that could be considered a hobby can nearly be turned to an RPG purpose – so roll on hobbies!
