Well my girlfriend for the longest time has never understood my obsession with d&d until now. Last night i finally talked her into playing her first game of d&d and it was great! She really expressed no interest in the game before and had no conception of how the game was played. I decided to run od&d with her and she rolled up a magic-user (male by the way) who apparently was also a time traveler of some sort. Even though she thought she wouldn't she loved it and played beautifully best player i have had in a long time. It was really amusing how well she fit into her role and really loved dragging on conversations with local npc's (forcing me to role-play more then i would have at the time). Regardless we both had fun and we plan on continuing the game so i will try to keep some postings of are sessions.
Unfortunately i have been getting ready to go school and have not had an opportunity to game nor blog much about the subject and in about two weeks i will probably not have any gaming at all for awhile. I will still try to make an effort to make some kind of posts here for those that care and hopefully i can find some people that enjoy some good ole d&d in Saint Louis where i will be attending school.
Here is a recap of the first session in my ad&d campaign. The first session saw two of my regular players show up and my brother jumped in. The characters rolled up where a paladin, monk, and a dwarf fighter. They started out in my capitol city called Izulde the "the magic capitol" and heard rumors of a forgotten wizards tower (tower of xylathern) just a days walk from the town that had recently been uncovered. Their first venture into the dungeon saw them only making it into the main room and opening a door to another. Behind the door the uncovered a crypt full of coffins and on the far side a large coffin padlocked. The dwarf immediately decided to break the lock on the coffin revealing that it housed an undead ogre ready for the kill. The dwarf was brought down instantly and the other two barely survived and managed to escape to the surface dragging the dwarf behind. Upon again reaching town they rested up and decided they needed another companion in doing so they met a strange creature, humanoid in appearance but completelycloaked calling himself a Yaki. This creature claimed he was a thief and was generally good natured but untrustworthy. So they ventured back into the depths this time avoiding the undead ogre but encountering a giant weasel which they bested quickly and another ogre whom the paladin managed to haggle with. The dwarf discovered a elevator shaft to another level and activated it not knowing that it was one way only. He decided to call upon the power of the Yaki (whom apparently had various strange powers) Yaki made a deal with the dwarf and in short the dwarf died in the end by selling his life. After which time the chracters left to regroup once again ending the first session..
not very inetresting.. but things will get better..
This is going to my title for my new role-playing game. The rough draft is finished and here for people who would like to take a peek....//www.mediafire.com/file/wgrzymgnjuk/age of lore.pdf Feedback is welcome!
I never got to meet Mr. Gygax but i did used to correspond regularly with him through email a few years back. He seemed like a cool guy and even though i never met him i miss him and am grateful to him for giving me hours and hours of entertainment and making me the person i am today. Cheers Gary I'm still having a blast after all these years.
I am currently working on a homebrewed roleplaying game. It will be a fantasy game based in medieval europe but more of a historical simulation with folklore and myth mixed in. I am currently working out the bugs and preparing for playtesting.
