#RPGaDay 2016 Day #26 What Hobbies Go Well with RPGs?

Outside of deep solo mediation, a Magic the Gathering addiction, or cooking meth, I'm not quite sure what hobbies DON'T go well with RPGs!

My two other active hobbies easily intertwine with RPGS, and each other. 

Miniature Wargaming:  Historicals mainly, but I certainly painted some old Grenadiers, and new Reaper mouslings this year.    This one evolved out of Green Army Men and Britains, but years of fiddling around with Battlesystem back in the D&D days didn't hurt either.  Sometimes your miniature-less game needs a scene that just won't do on a erasable hexmat. 

History:  Any good gamemaster should have a basic knowledge of history, especially if they're looking into resolving campaign issues in a realistic manner.  It doesn't matter if you've got dragons, cyborgs, or My Little Ponies, some version of your story has been done before.
