If I could pick any real-world superpower related to gaming I think it would be the ability to draw.
That’s it. Full stop.
(I really don’t want to go through the work to develop that skill! I just want to wake up with it one day. My stack of how-to-draw books is bigger than my ambition to take it on.)
My non-gaming superpower would be the ability to speak any language.

Oh yes, me too about drawing. I so wish I could conjure the visuals in my head to the page.
But my non-gaming superpower would be teleportation.
Both of those are strong on my list too.
Yo, this is me as well. 100000%
Yup. So far I’m just trying to get better at pixel sprites.
ditto on that stack of how to draw books though…
I’ll trade you my drawing skills for your game analysis and GM-fu.
I’d go for “snapping fingers and poof mini becomes instantly painted in high detail”.
Not only good for gaming, but mad bank to be made.
Gaming Superpower: conjure illusory costumes and scenography
I’d want something akin to “Be able to tell a grand (for a given value of grand) story.” With it would come a better grasp of vocabulary and technique. Me no speaky well in flesh space.
I decided to put some work in it. It feels good.
I’ve been saying for years that I wouldn’t sell my soul to be able to draw, but if I were selling my soul anyway I’d throw in the ability to draw as lagnaippe.
Ralph Mazza I’ve got at least 20 boardgames for which this would be the best power. Orrr if I knew someone who had that power.
Having very little fine motor control, I feel this very strongly…
I would love to be able to draw and yet the knowledge that I could practice up to being at least passable hasn’t gotten me anywhere.
Lol you know mine would be rule deciphering.
Mine would be being able to actually run prewritten adventures. There’s so much good stuff out there and I have no idea how to get that stuff onto the table.
I’ve been lucky with artists though. I can’t draw, but I’ve had both a comic book artist and an animator in my groups over the years. And I’m looking forward to gaming more with Alex Mayo and Greg David, who can both draw like it’s no big deal.
Ha ha ha – if you only saw all the hair-pulling that leads to a finished drawing 😛
