Real Virtuality

One of the goals of role-playing, in fact, one of the facets of the Ultimate Role-Playing Experience™, is the blurring of the line between fantasy and reality.

The most common example of blurring fantasy and reality is found in singles’ bars at closing time, and is generated by a presence of alcohol in excess of common sense.

Another is created by virtue of prop bling, which also blurs the line between table-top role-playing and larping. It’s one thing to have an entry on your character sheet that says you have 300 gold. It’s another to have a pouch with 300 pieces of fake coinage. And it’s entirely another ot have 300 actual gold coins.

So while Gamer Bling aspires to the third example, he is often required to make do with the second. To that end, today Gamer Bling presents two prop-style bling products: Fantasy Coins and Magic Decks. Buy and enjoy!
