Last night two of the boys and I got together to continue on The Tyranny of Dragons campaign with the characters heading off to the Raider’s Camp to rescue a friend that had been kidnapped.
My game night usually starts at 6pm and ends between 9-10pm. I would like to run a little later but one of my player has to get up early on Sunday morning to head off to work and he really needs his beauty sleep! I presume if i recruited another one or two more players around the table that might make a different in the group dynamics.
So with two players at the table (since the third one was out) I provided two NPC’s to tag along to help our heroes out in their “quest”. In this particular session they were hired by the Governor to see what motivated the kobolds and cultist to raid the town in the first place? And why did they take their friend as well?
After last weeks cancellation it was good to get back into the thick of things once again. I don’t know how long this campaign will go, but there will be weekends that will be called due to previous commitments; theatrical and work related as well. And also, one of my players informed me of a new business venture that might spill into Saturday evening and I’m fine with that.
Because, I sometimes put a hold on game night for a couple of weeks for a production at the local theatre. And, After all work is what needed to pay the bills and put food on the table. So it’s always good to get information in advance instead of on the day or evening of gaming (or a no show at all) which I can prepare for a good alternate for that evening session as well.
I’m just happy to get at a table, roll some dice, swill some coffee (or a beer) and partake in some face to face gaming. Because, I know there will come a time with face to face gaming will become far and few in-between due to life events and might as well enjoy it while we can. There’s always Roll20 (or other VTT sites) to visit so it’s a sigh of relief knowing that you could not go cold turkey for gaming.
