This geeklist collects images showing players engaged in pen&paper role-playing.

Most rulebooks contain a section explaining What is a roleplaying game?. But while this may be difficult and at the same time nauseatingly overdone already, there are relatively few attempts to depict role-playing. That's why I've started this list.

There are thousands of photos available, of course. I'm less interested in these. Instead, I'm looking for drawings etc. Please include as much information as possible: artist, source, date, title (if the picture has one), hyperlink...

What I find interesting, among other things, is to see how the artists try to make clear that we're seeing people engaged in an RPG, what is considered typical, how players are portrayed (age, gender, racial background), etc.
My first impression is that (apart from photographs) most depictions are humorous: cartoons, comics, surprisingly often inverted: fantasy creatures playing humans.

Symbolic stuff on the table: dice, GM screen, sheets of paper. Sometimes: rulebook, miniatures and a playing board.

There's probably thousands of photographs of actual play out there. I'd say we don't need them all on this list. If you find any particularly worthwhile, post them as a comment to this item. Bonus points if it has an open licence that allows for sharing, reusing etc.!

For a start, there are several photographs at Wikimedia Commons, all using a Creative Commons Licence. See

Microbadge: Citizenship Recognition - Level VI -  Is six any more shiny? ... Well, it's one shinier isn't it? ... Okay, why don't you just make five a bit more shiny and then that would be the most shiny? ... Because these go to six.
From her deviantART page:
Quote:
This was done for an issue of Rifter - from Palladium - for an article on the art of running an RPG. This round table was the intro image to the article. I used myself (you can see the back of my head - I'm the chick with the long hair), my former student Brantley Moore (pompadour and glasses), Dave Jablonski (in the hat), Josh Knapp (dude in the leather jacket), and my husband, Adam, our GM.
I'm assuming that Comfort Love is referring to this article: The Art of Role-Playing Game Master and Player Tips (Issue 38 - Apr 2007).
