Hey, it's not like I set this group up at the beginning of the year or anything. But between various job duties for my buddies and my own extenuating circumstances, it took months and months to get this going. But we were able get together finally and play the first session.
We're using 5th edition rules, because they're cool. Admittedly, I need to reread and reread again everything because I'm still calling for skill checks that haven't existed since '98. But I'm a role-playing DM, so the rules can work however I need. More imporantly, I had to set up the area and make it comfortable for everyone.
|Ah, a DnD table with plenty of room, always a complaint...|
|My little area, complete with dice and NPC mins and the write-up and... Still lots of room!|
|I changed their faces to protect the identities of those involved. Plus, I found the paint program on my reader!!!|
The end of the session saw them all involved and waiting for the next step, and we had to close it down because it was late. Luckily, I had written the end point for this session into the adventure already, and the session took a bit longer just because everyone was so 'new'.
Next session sees them delve into their first dungeon and truly begin the epic quest I have them on right now. Maybe there'll be details to come, but we'll have to see. Stay tuned!
Have y'all been role-playing at all? I'm only just getting back into it since 2006 myself and it's FUN! Happy Gaming!
