The lodge featured heavily in an April 7 feature article on roleplaying in the UAE by Gulf News’ Friday magazine reporter Shreeja Ravindranathan, who joined us to play a session.
I loved the fact that Sheerja wanted to play with us (and, earlier, with LARPers in Abu Dhabi) before writing about the hobby.
Although I’ve written about gaming in newspapers before, it was a delight to see our hobby through fresh eyes.
It’s a great article from someone who spent enough time talking with us and playing with us to understand the appeal of the hobby.
(It’s taken me a couple of weeks to post about his because it came out as the Middle East Film & Comic Con was in full flow, and all my focus was on that.)
