Depictions of Tabletop 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.
