It’s been a few weeks since I did some game related stuff. This summer was busy and quite active as my players took the summer off to enjoy life at the cottage, hanging around campfires and drinking suds with buds and family.
The Dungeons & Dragons game that had been running with the Tyranny of Dragons books has hit a roadblock and I don’t think it’ll recover from it. It’s been so long since we’ve played that I had forgotten where we left off. And, I’m thinking of gathering the gang back now that summer is on the wane, and fall will soon upon us in all her glory.
After several weeks of not rolling any dice at all; it made me think of that Simpson parody of The Shining. But my mantra was “No dice rolling, no gaming makes Tim something something.” Yeah, I’ve a touch cranky at times, I swear that gaming is theraputic as well a very nice social activity of people gathered around and sharing an experience or two.
On Monday, I got the chance to actually play. Well, it was on Roll20 and it was an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons adventure and I created a thief with the moniker, Garrin Goodfellow, a halfling tallfellow from Brumbletoe Brooks. And as described by another player a “pyscho death-wish half-pint” simply because a group of giant fire ants come pouring out of a huge hill and towards the party, Garrin, with dagger in hand goes charging forth into the fray.
Well, Garrin took a beating and he kept on weeping.
Overall, it was a fun session and a blast to play. Since I wasn’t on the other side of the GM screen. I look forward to the next session in two weeks time. But, meanwhile I got to prepare for this upcoming Saturday as Game Night kicks off once again…. hopefully.
