  • >> James: I'VE TRIED TO TALK TO REGGIE ABOUT THIS.

  • >> HE WON'T.

  • >> James: I'M WONDERING IF YOU CAN HELP ME.

  • YOU RECENTLY FINISHED A DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS GAME THAT WENT ON

  • FOR THREE YEARS.

  • >> YES, THE ROD OF SEVEN PARTS.

  • >> James: SURE.

  • HOW DOES IT GO ON FOR THREE YEARS?

  • HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?

  • HOW DOES IT END, AND WHY EVEN BOTHER ENDING AT THIS POINT.

  • >> LET ME ASK YOU THIS, JAMES -- DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO

  • IMAGINE?

  • >> James: YES, I ABSOLUTELY DO.

  • 100% I DO.

  • >> OKAY.

  • WELL, THEN, IF YOU CAN GET TO THE POINT WHERE YOU AND, PER

  • CHANCE, FOUR TO SIX OTHER GROWN ADULTS CAN SIT AROUND A TABLE

  • AND ALL TRY TO IMAGINE THE SAME THING, AND THEN WHEN THERE'S A

  • CONTEST OF ANYTHING YOU WANT TO HAPPEN, ROLL THEM BONES, THEN

  • YOU CAN PLAY DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS FOR THREE YEARS.

  • BASICALLY, WE TOLD A FANTASY EPIC AKIN TO "LORD OF THE RINGS"

  • THAT IS ENTIRELY OUR OWN AND EXISTS ONLY IN OUR MINDS.

  • SO TO TRY AND SHARE -- OH, HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED WHEN OLIUS

  • DEFEATED THE KRACKEN!

  • IT'S LIKE TELLING SOMEONE YOUR DREAM.

  • SO INTERESTING.

  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

  • SO IT'S A VERY, VERY IMPORTANT STORY THAT WAS TOLD ONLY FOR THE

  • SIX PEOPLE THAT WERE IN OUR GROUP.

  • I'M VERY PROUD OF THAT.

  • >> James: WELL, THAT'S THE BEST WAY ANYONE HAS EVER

  • EXPLAINED DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS TO ME BECAUSE I'VE NEVER QUITE

  • GOT IT BEFORE BECAUSE PEOPLE DO THAT THING OF TRYING TO EXPLAIN

  • IT, AND YOU'RE RIGHT, YOU CAN'T.

  • >> NO, BECAUSE IT'S JUST A MEMORY AT THAT POINT, IT ALWAYS

  • IS.

  • >> James: BUT I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND THE NOTION OF HAVING

  • A SHARED, CREATIVE, IMAGINARY EXPERIENCE WITH A GROUP OF

  • FRIENDS THAT IS ONLY HAPPENING THERE AND THEN, IN THAT MOMENT

  • THERE.

  • >> YEAH, YEAH.

  • I MEAN, WHEN IT WAS ALL DONE, WHY IT WENT THREE YEARS IS

  • BECAUSE THE STORY KEPT GOING AND BASICALLY, AT EVERY MOMENT, WE

  • WERE, LIKE, NO, LET'S KEEP TELLING IT.

  • >> James: HOW DO YOU END IT?

  • WITH SOME TEARS.

  • NO JOKE, THERE WERE TEARS AT THE END.

  • YEAH, BECAUSE CHARACTERS YOU KNOW FOR A LONG TIME DIE OR THEY

  • MOVE ON AND THEIR STORIES, THEIR EPILOGUE IS KIND OF SAD IN SOME

  • WAYS, AND WE ALL, LIKE, SAT AROUND THE TABLE, WE MET FOR THE

  • FINALE AND WE SAT AROUND THE TABLE AND HAD DRINKS AND SAID,

  • REMEMBER WHEN IT'S SEPTEMBER AND IT WAS HEROS DAY AND WE WERE,

  • LIKE, AH, CRUSHED A CUP OVER OUR STORIES.

  • HOW WE ENDED IT IS WE GOT THE SEVEN PARTS OF THE ROD.

  • AND WE DEFEATED MISHKA THE SPIDER QUEEN.

  • JAMES -- >> James: I GET IT.

  • I COMPLETELY GET IT.

  • >> SEEMS LIKE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WE DEFEATED MISHKA.

  • >> James: YEAH, AND THE SEVEN RODS OF THE KRACKEN.

  • >> YOU'RE MAKING FUN OF ME, I CAN TELL.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> James: NO, I'M NOT.

  • THAT'S THE BEST -- >> DID I SUCCESSFULLY DITCH PEN

  • AND PAPER ROLE GAMES.

  • >> James: YOU DID AND I NEVER THOUGHT THAT WAS POSSIBLE.

  • REGGIE, DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR OUR GUEST THIS EVENING?

  • >> Reggie: I DO.

  • TONIGHT'S QUESTION GOES TO -- ( DRUM ROLL )

  • -- LET'S MAKE IT FOR THOMAS.

  • >> OH, OKAY.

  • >> Reggie: OKAY.

  • UM, SO, WHEN YOU'RE ROLE PLAYING, WHEN DOING DUNGEONS AND

  • DRAGONS, SPECIFICALLY, AND PEN AND PAPER, OBVIOUSLY YOU CAN USE

  • HEXAGONAL STUFF, FIGURINES.

  • WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PLAYING?

  • I LIKE TO DESCRIBE WHAT MY CHARACTER IS DOING, I DON'T

  • REALLY PLAY MY CHARACTER SO MUCH, AND HOW DO YOU NAVIGATE

  • THE DIFFERENT STYLES OF PLAYING.

  • >> YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THIRD PERSON INVENTED BY --

  • >> Reggie: YES.

  • THAT'S THE ONE I WAS IN.

  • I HYBRID PLAY.

  • THIS WAS INVENTED IN 1991 BY KURT COBAIN OF ALL PEOPLE, WHERE

  • YOU DO A MIX OF FIRST PERSON AS IN I SAY THIS, I DO THIS, AND

  • ALSO A MIX OF THIRD PERSON, PER CHANCE, USING YOUR CHARACTER'S

  • NAME OR DESCRIBING EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO IN THE SCENE, AS IT WERE.

  • OF COURSE, YOU'RE DOING THE PALM WITH MANY FINGERS, THE SYMBOL OF

  • THE BROKEN TWIST, AND THE THIEVES GUILD.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> Reggie: I'M ONLY LAUGHING

  • BECAUSE IT'S CRAZY HOW PRECISE THAT IS.

  • THAT'S ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.

  • THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT.

  • >> James: IT'S ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!

>> James: I'VE TRIED TO TALK TO REGGIE ABOUT THIS.
