Dungeons And Dragons
As is always the case, as the Dungeon Master for our "whenever we can herd enough players" D&D campaign it's up to me to recap what's happened so far.
When last we left our intrepid band of somewhat merry adventurers, Liz Harper, Anne Stickney, Cory Taylor, Joe "Lodur" Perez and Deb Montague (along with Mitch "Mitch" Mitchell, who won't be joining us this weekend unfortunately) were still exploring the mysterious island they found themselves stranded on after waking up in a volcano lair, being chased by a dragon made of lava, having an altercation on the beach with a bunch of Kobolds, and now, after a run-in with a mysterious shape shifting individual with unclear loyalties they've spent the night in an ancient building.

This Saturday on the official Blizzard Watch Twitch channel at 2:30 PM Central time, our intrepid band of adventurers will once again sally forth into the mysterious jungles of the island of -- well, so far exploding volcano lairs, giant magma dragons, angry kobolds riding on giant monsters, and crashing airships.
In previous articles, we have covered a bunch of beginner Dungeons and Dragons concepts -- how to be a dungeon master, how to turn your favorite books into Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, and how to play Dungeons and Dragons online.
If you're playing Dungeons and Dragons or just like reading the books -- and there's no shame in that, I'm a huge fan of way more RPGs than I've actually gotten to play -- you may be wondering what Baldur's Gate: Descent Into Avernus, the latest D&D adventure, is all about.
So you're running a D&D game, and you're not sure what you want to do.
Sooner or later -- and probably sooner -- you're going to say Okay, everyone roll for initiative when playing Dungeons and Dragons.
Okay, so you're running a D&D game.
