It’s Like Riding a Bike…

My blog is about gaming…. and Dungeons & Dragons is totally a game, so I am blogging about it!

So, I am a bit of a D&Der… I started playing when I was 13 and my uncle told me he would start me and some friends a campaign of our own if I could make it all the way through The Hobbit, which would prove I was ready to be included in such things. I read the book in only a few days, and loved it of course! I played a fair bit through my teen years, once every couple weeks at least, until our group got whittled down from people going away to school or just getting busy with adult life. When only my boyfriend and I were left back in 2005, our characters were forced into early retirement.

In the past year we’ve been trying to get started again. I DMed a few games, and was getting the hang of things, but it is a lot of work, especially making your campaigns from scratch, so my interest faded a bit. My brother just recently started DMing for us though, and I’ve really enjoyed getting back to playing as part of the group! He is liking being the DM, and doing a good job of it too, so I am thinking we might be able to get back to it being a regular event!

My current character is a level 3 cleric who keeps trying to be good, but has a bit of a bad temper… lol. I had never tried playing as a cleric before, but I am enjoying it! It’s nice to be able to focus on keeping friends alive rather than just slaughtering enemies for a change, though sometimes I get caught up and take a few more swings, when I really should have been keeping someone else from being knocked unconscious, hehe. I haven’t let any of my group members die yet however, though I did almost kill one of them myself…

So I am thinking I may start blogging about some of the funny/interesting things that happen during our games. I had tried making comics of some of the most humorous stuff from the game I was DMing, but I am a mediocre artist too, so they kind of suck, hehe. We’ve already gotten together twice this week to play, so hopefully I will have lots to write about soon!
