GM Dictionary: Sports #20

Here’s the deal. I am not super into sports and generally know only tangential information about them. That being said various sports and sporting events have been huge for humans for…well…ever. So this month I am going to begin expanding my, and your, dictionaries with a whole bunch of sport-related words. Most of these will probably be at least a little familiar to even the most unaware layman, but I want to create a bit of a foundation from which we could do a couple more of these. Because hells there are a lot of sports.



Fisherman Jousting: An inaccurate name for an Egyptian competition where two boats of competitors attempt to force the others out of their boat where they must swim to shore before the dangers of the river killed and/or ate them.


This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs (or potentially so!) than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
