From the beginning of January (Term 2), I have been taking part in the Role Playing Lab at VFS. The RolePlaying Lab consists of weekly sessions in which we meet to play table-top RPGs.
In the case of my group, we are playing a Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 campaign.
Although I have heard a lot about them, I had never got the chance to play a table RPG before. In some way I am glad because now I learned how to do it with an amazing Dungeon Master! Funny enough, our Dungeon Master is a VFS Graduate himself. Diego R. Pons graduated way back in 2006, in the 4th Game Design Class ( we are in the 40th class), and currently works at Next Level Games. Our DM plays all characters incredibly well, and is able to provide us with a deeply immersive experience both with his performance and the soundtrack and images he prepares.
I don’t really understand how I survived my first term in VFS, but I did it, and I’m alive – YAY!
…Well, I suppose I should introduce myself first.
My name is Andreia, 22 and I came from Portugal aaaaall the way to this side of Canada to study Programming for Games Web and Mobile at Vancouver Film School. While finishing my bachelor’s in Graphic Design I got really frustrated by not being able to actually make stuff happen and thus decided to learn Sorcery (aka Coding).
It has been a great adventure up until now, super far away from home, but it’s been worth it.
I’ve been around since October but haven’t really got the time to write something. So here it goes my review of the first term.
When I look back at the last 2 months this is how I would describe it:
(Programming students – and everyone around hearing them crying and eat ice cream – will get this)
