A New Adventure

Last night shteevie kicked off a new D&D campaign, with nibowl and other good folks among the players. In some ways, this is always the best part of a game: before any arguments among the players, or disappointments during play. I'm especially intrigued by shteevie's pantheon, which is compact and fairly interesting. If it doesn't work out, our alternate Mondays group will dissolve with the arrival of football season, I'm sure.

Our little group decided on a wilderness theme (a ranger, druid, poacher were among the characters generated), so we've already got a little group cohesion from that. Plus, we were all thrown together in an original way, with mandatory backstory as second sons and daughters sworn to serve a local Duke.

Of course, no one actually brought a 3.5 PHB to the session, but we managed to stumble along without one. We're hardcore in our geekitude.

Geeek! Wow, I didn't know "poacher" was a valid character class. Huh. What next, "redneck"?

It's not a character class, it's just a general a character concept. Some geek you are. :)

Anyway, all I want this character to do is walk the earth. You know, like Caine in Kung Fu. (Audio Link)

Sarcasm or an expectation?

Just the normal course of things. I've never been in an RPG group that didn't have disagreements. And any long-running group inevitably disappoints at some level.

Fortunately, the expectation for this one is amusing: "This is the campaign that models the world of Nintendo console RPGs." So, it's not a big angst-ridden drama-fest, right off. For a sample of the tone, see 8-Bit Funnies.

That's the most depressing thing I've heard someone say about gaming!

You have to find yourself a new group! Say, you should join one of our Saturday games. There are two campaigns to pick from. We've been going for years 'n' years . . . .

Glad to know that it's being accepted as decent. I've been wanting to see what his games are run like, since I've only ever seen him as a player.
