All D&D, skip if you aren’t into it

Teresa actually said she would not be upset if I played D&D a few nights a week (like 4).  She said if I did it 6 nights she’d begin to feel like something was wrong with our relationship.  I think I just want my 2 nights on mumble and maybe a weekend day in 3D with in your face people.  Would do me good to get out and meet new people.  I am just afraid I am gonna find a game with a bunch of kidlings and be the token old fart who plays.  Well, I didn’t make it to the game shop tonight (I said Saturday on yesterday’s post, but then found out that D&D is on Wednesdays, oh well).   Maybe next Wednesday I will go.

Jon turned down my offer to run a game on his mumble on Wednesday night.  He said he is just totally not interested in playing D&D anymore.  I believe to the point that we will never resume his game.  That is ok, I am trying to put together a high level game on Derek’s server on Wednesday nights instead.  Adam and Cori are in definitely, waiting on Jet’s schedule before we begin playing, so we won’t start until late July, that is if Jet, Derek and Alan are up to playing 2 nights a week with me as DM.  Shannon wants to join us, but wife agro is keeping him from joining.

I have decided that I am making all the characters for the high level game.  Well, not completely making all of them.  I am gonna supply the stats and the magic items, but all the choices are gonna be made by the players.  This way I won’t or shouldn’t have arguments about X player getting more than Y player and so forth.  Not that I think I would have a lot of that anyway.  The character sheet thing I use now does a great job of supplying information.  So, I plan to use that for everyone.

I posted a metric ton of info on the Facebook group for my game today.  Lots and lots of information.  When I released this info for the low level game it was over a couple weeks, todays info came in the matter of a couple hours.  I hope I didn’t give information overload to anyone.  It wasn’t my intention to scare anyone off, just supplying info in a timely concise manner.

My gaming world (I don’t use any of the canonized worlds) is developing quite nicely.  I have the eastern and western edges mapped out and some of the middle.  It’s a huge place with long distances between city-states.  But this gives me lots of room to play with.  Realistically, with how my world is set up, I could probably run 10 to 15 different campaigns and not have people traipsing over the same ground as each other.  It is that sprawling of a place.

The Friday night game went well last Friday.  Like no time had passed since we last played 4 months ago.  That is what happens when you play with friends.  You can just pick up where you left off like nothing happened.  However, it didn’t go down like I expected it to, either I didn’t say something I should have or they misinterpreted something I did say.  One way or the other, they didn’t go the way I wanted them to go, as a matter of fact, they got a whole lot of nowhere.  It’s all good though, I think they had fun, I know I did.  Plus, now I have things in place to get them headed in the right direction.

Just trying to have some fun with my friends.  Not my fault that my friends live so far away.  I would play with them normally in person if the opportunity showed itself.  But since I live in Iowa and they are all in Indiana…  I guess that’s not going to happen anytime soon.  Oh well, it’s all good, we have mumble and Facebook chat.
