I started writing this blog entry Thursday night after the first session of the Chronicles of the Lost Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Firstly, its was the most fun I have had running a game in a long while. Secondly, they killed a Red Dragon Wyrmling on their first night. And thirdly, I rewarded them with level 4 and some loot, not a lot of loot, but some. And finally, every one of them went sort of out of their way to tell me they had a lot of fun too and I even got compliments on the main story line giving meaning to doing it. I feel great about all of that. — the first point, I have been DMing a long time, and I honestly can’t remember that much fun. Seriously, I had a blast and hearing their reaction to finding the Wyrmling was priceless and then them honestly beating the Wyrmling was just amazing. — The second point, they took 2 fire breath shots and only had 1 player go down and he was promptly revived. It was a tough fight and they not only survived, but beat the Wyrmling. — The third point, they deserved level 4 and a little loot, they did what I was thinking was near impossible.—- And the last point, people telling me they had fun happens every time and I don’t always believe them, this time I am sure they did, they earn bragging rights for that fight. And getting the compliment on the main storyline or plan as he called it was just cake. —- So, I thank the players, Cori, Dave, other Dave, Craig, Scott, and Kayla. I knew this group was special but damn, they rocked it.
In other Chronicles news, I have set the bar real high for myself. Last night’s game was incredible. I hope and will strive to keep that intensity up for the whole Chronicles run. The old me could do that, the chemo brain part of the new me in unsure. But dammit, I am gonna try. A promise I make to my players, my friends old and new, I will give you the best I am able.
That is all that I am writing in this blog entry, a real blog entry MIGHT be written later today, but I thought this night deserves a special entry.
