My wife gets sick of me at times, mostly due to my perverted nature. I can’t blame her, considering I turn everything into a Michael Scott “That’s what she said,” moment. But seriously, if you start your day at 7am with the following e-mail from your boss, what do you expect me to do?
“Today is a very tight staffing day! Let me know if there are any holes, and I will try to fill them.”
As I mentioned in my first post, I am currently dungeon mastering (yup, I turned it into a verb) a Dungeons and Dragons 4th edition campaign. DnD has been a game I have played for roughly ten years now, and I can’t think of a time when I have enjoyed it more.
Our campaign tries to play every Sunday night for around 6 – 7 hours, and we have been doing so for about 3 months now. Every PC I know holds the notion that the higher levels are more fun, and while I agree, I think it is important to start at the lower levels to work your way into a character and campaign, not focus so much on the fighting but also on the story of the world itself. But to appease my crowd, in the roughly ten or so sessions that we’ve had, I have power-leveled the group from level 1 up to level 5.
I may, from time to time, document a certain battle, part of the story, or something on here. Only a few of my friends will be interested in reading it (if any at all), but I know that in the future, I may appreciate knowing what went well and what didn’t with the sessions that I plan.
Sometimes, I just need to start things over in my life. I need a change of pace. A new outlook. Insert other cliche phrases here. At times, I feel my creative juices just don’t have as many outlets as I would like. Sure, being a sweet Dungeon Master allows me to create sweet worlds and fun encounters (or that is how I perceive them), but apparently my brain is crying out for more.
This blog aspires to be that new thing for me. We will see where it goes, if anywhere. Hence the title.
