Dungeons And Dragons
We're two sessions into our Blizzard Watch Dungeons and Dragons game, and so far we've seen our party of adventurers wake up on slabs, fight their way through a goblin infested volcano lair, steal an airship, interrogate a goblin they've named either "Bud" or "Bob" depending on who you ask, and crash said airship into a river while it was on fire from the breath weapon of a dragon that hatched out of that same volcano.
Dungeons and Dragons is more popular now than it has been in years, if not more popular than it has ever been.
I think the first computer game I ever played was a Gold Box Dungeons and Dragons adventure, if we're not counting text adventure games, none of which I remember.
It may not have been an entirely wise decision, but I'm going to be running a D&D game for us Blizzard Watch folks -- and we're going to stream it, record it, and let y'all listen to us do this.
One of the first books I ever bought for the Third Edition of the Dungeons and Dragons RPG was, of all things, a Diablo themed sourcebook, named Diablerie.
In my post about Pathfinder I talked a lot about the Open Gaming License which allowed Paizo to take the revised 3rd Edition of Dungeons and Dragons and essentially create Pathfinder out of it.
I knew I liked the fine folk of Boralus.
