My sons made it official for me, the kids this year in the AGC will be playing some good old retro gaming.

There will be a great learning curve here but I really cannot wait and I can't wait to get started on this sandbox game!


Birthday with the boys! Old School

For my birthday today the boys gave me a few hours of old school gaming! I took one of the caves of chaos "goblins", and set it by itself. The kids played a Human Ranger, Dwarvish Cleric and an Elf Fighter Thief with an npc Mage. They laughed as the Ogre tried to ambush them on their second journey in...the Ogre escaped so we will see him again! No great treasure yet but we are having a blast so far!

Summer

On this fine summer morning I am hope with all three boys and I am going through my gaming boxes in the garage...there are going to be some happy people at Half-Priced Books today!

I am working on a Basic/LL/SnW campaign for the fall for the AGC kids...but that is going on in my head as I clean...and clean and clean!

I am very stoked!

Ok now why? Well after this next session for my Pathfinder group I will be getting a chance to sit on the other side of a GM screen and actually PLAY! One of my players is taking up the mantle of GM for about three to four months and I am very excited about this because YES it will be Dragonlance. Now I am not a huge fan of DL but I have been doing some reading and I have to say the timeline he has chosen is exciting to me, it will be set in the Age of Mortals.

The GM has also put all of the characters together, we will get a chance to read the backgrounds of the character and go from there...

I won't bore you with how long it has been since I sat on the front side of a GM screen for a campaign of any sort...but let's just say that some of the top songs included artists known as the Bangles, Cyndi Lauper and Madonna was just hitting her own!

To quote a favorite movie of mine from the seventies, "This is gonna be GREAT!"

The party of big Kids from the Northlands Gaming Group have picked back up and are in the middle of the AP from Paizo, Bastards of Erebus. They are in the final leg of the adventure assaulting the lair of the Bastards, and so far things are actually going well. We had to pause to halt the session and will pick up in July...this is going to be very interesting for me as now the real fun begins....

The pic above was my first introduction to Tieflings from 2e and I must say that the pic is one I like better than what passes for Tieflings now...just thought I should share!

I really want to do something with Doctor Who now after watching the latest episodes....especially seeing Madame Vastra and Jenny, really want to see more of those characters!

Demons run when a good man goes to war
Night will fall and drown the sun
When a good man goes to war

Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and the dark will rise
When a good man goes to war

Demons run, but count the cost
The battle's won, but the child is lost


Great episode and now I really want to see more...I still hate Moffat but I am beginning to appreciate him..,.

Welcome to June, I wanted to get something down earlier but it was a busy day at work today...anyhoo. Summer is here and now I am in my DnD mood, I am still running my Cthonian Stars game and that is great, my mind keep wandering to gold and monsters now. :)

I love Pathfinder but I have a chance to do something else as a one shot this summer and I think I am going to go with a B/X LL and CnC combo! I have the idea down, I need to put some characters together for a nice little exploration/dungeon crawl!

I will post more later about this special Northlands exclusive! :)
