Running a mystery adventure in Dungeons and Dragons can be difficult.
So you want to play Dungeons and Dragons -- or any tabletop RPG, really -- but you, like me, are broke and can't afford all those books, and a ton of dice, and minis, and maps, and even more dice.
This isn't a post about how terrible Dungeons and Dragons is -- I think it's a fine game system for a specific kind of role playing campaign.
On Saturday, December 19, those brave souls who venture to the Blizzard Watch Twitch channel at 2:30 PM Central will witness the culmination of 16 episodes of our D&D play stream, as the party of ragtag adventurers who have gone from being trapped in a volcano lair to escaping to another dimension to returning home to find out their lives were stolen by imposters now head back to that volcano lair to destroy two horrible artifacts of a dread alien god in the unquenchable flames of another god's summer vacation home.
Dungeons and Dragons has your attention -- with Tasha's Cauldron of Everything coming out, how could it not?
Last weekend, we went back to our long running D&D campaign and almost immediately found ourselves role playing a bunch, as our Dwarf Cleric Mediel and her undead Warlock cousin Malachi talked it out about how stodgy and confining Dwarven culture is, and our Tiefling Rogue Mischief found out she has three moms -- sort of -- and our Gnome Wizard Wilyur Rustspark has come to a resolution on his evil doppleganger, and our Elf Fighter Zellan really hates pirates.
Tasha's Cauldron of Everything arrived this week and like the title promises it brings a whole new book of "everything" to the D&D player.
This Saturday, November 14, at 2:30 P.M.
I recently had an interesting experience that led me to a discovery I'm pretty happy with.
