Teethcutting

Yes, Amiee and Amber have had their first Dungeons and Dragons session playing together. On the same side, full roleplaying mode with character sheets (after a short tutorial on how to use Daddy's beginner-friendly customised character sheets) and me as the DM.

We stole the same three characters Amiee and I use for her own solo game - a cleric of Talos, a Sorceror with a penchant for messy pyrotechnics and of course the legendary Murgh the Minotaur, a very large and aggressive chappie who Amber took over as her character.

I placed them in Amn in the Forgotten Realms, looking to hire on to fight the Ogre Mage-led army which has taken over the south of the country. Having got into possibly the shortest bar fight ever (a Half-Orc who hates Minotaurs mouthed off and the Sorceror cast a 100% successful Disintegrate spell) they came to the attention of the Shadow Thieves who control much of the cities of Amn and somewhat undiplomatically told them to come back in the morning to negotiate as they wanted their kip. Amber's Minotaur hears the noise of someone trying to unpick the door lock, opens the door to the great surprise of the troupe of black-clad thieves who scramble desperately back into the shadows and declares:

'We's tryin to get some sleep. Come back in da mornin or I'll kill yer."

No troubles, no messing around, the kid was seriously focussed. An excellent start to proper home DnD that doesnt involve cuddly toys...

Hey DSD,

Just wanted to let you know that I had no idea you'd returned to blogging. So sorry I didn't realize :(

Hope you're doing well!

Hi DSD,

Nice to see you back I had no idea. Didn't know you were a D&D fan. Many moons ago I used to be into most of the RPGs. D&D, Tunnels and Trolls, Runequest, Traveller and many more.

A few years ago I came across the FUDGE RPG system which you may find interesting.

As I said - nice to see you back!

Grabbed the fudge system, looks cool. I use something similar when I write LARPs sometimes. Will play with it some when time permits.

If you want to revive your gaming habits you could always come down to Conception 2008 next February...

I'd feel way to self conscious to do role playing. Hey i just remembered, did you see the video clip with the guy who had shot his mate with a crossbow? it was one of the funniest clips ive ever seen on the internet, and id love to show you if you havnt seen it.

Anyway, yes, i painted a bit of warhammer and quite liked space crusade, and what was it hero quest? but then i got a PC and pretty much never played a board game since. warhammer 40k:DOW is quite good, and supreme commander totally kicks ass.
