Oliver interviews Mia about the role playing game Dungeons and Dragons and then Alex about the new to Brooklyn Apple Academy Wild West role playing game Boot Hill.
Oliver: This is an interview with Oliver and Mia about role playing games. We’re starting with Dungeons and Dragons. All right, Mia, what’s your most commonly played character
Mia: Misty Moon Whisper. I have two characters named that, but I’m talking about the level five one. The other is level eight. But I use the level five one more often because I do a Dungeons and Dragons course here at Brooklyn Apple on Tuesdays.
Oliver: What class and race is it?
Mia: Both my characters are elf druids.
Oliver: What’s your favorite part about D&D?
Mia: I love how you can be a completely different person and do an adventure with other people that are completely different. It really brings people together.
Oliver: So about D&D. What do you think the best part of making a character is?
Mia: I like how you can invent a completely new person for yourself, as I’ve already said. It’s really nice that you can be magical or non-magical, female or male. Sometimes when you’re done, you can’t even tell that it’s you.
Oliver: All right. Thank you for letting me interview you.
Oliver: Hi. Oliver here interviewing Alex. Alex, we’re gonna be interviewing you about Boot Hill. What is your favorite aspect about Boot Hill?
Alex: I like that it’s a fast paced game. I like the fact that you can die in the game pretty easily. I think that it’s kind of fun. It’s different than a lot of the other role playing games we play where your characters live on forever and become invincible.
Oliver: What’s your favorite type of character?
Alex: I always like to play the big, dumb, strong guy who sort of bullies his way in and kicks the door down.
Oliver: What’s your favorite weapon in Boot Hill?
Alex: The two shot derringer is my favorite because I like being able to stick it in your boot, even though it is wimpy.
Oliver: What type of people do you like to play with the most?
Alex: Oh, I like the people who go and rob the banks [laughing].
Oliver: [giggles] All right. That’s the interview with Alex on Boot Hill.
