Why are they so fun, you ask. Well, my answer is that you get to be someone completely different, even a different gender, and act out their lives like you could never do. You can become a sorcerer(in different RPGs), a carpenter, a baker, a mathematician, or even swordfight, and you might not be able to do those things in the real world. You can be villianous, heroic, devilish, attractive, ugly, smart, dumb, male, female, the possiblities are endless! You get to work a plot with people you know, and make a story and life together, even if in reality they live halfway across the world and speak Spanish, Dutch, or Chinese and you don't.
