Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Tonight I ran a game for the first time in nearly 15 years -- and my first D&D game since the early 90s. Over the course of the session:
- the gnome tamed a giant weasel and rode it around the battle field;
- the party argued about throwing the (largely ineffectual) henchman at a pursuing mine cart;
- and the players used their problem solving skills to figure out a course of action when the paladin caught fire.
In short: it was a great time and reminded me why I love RPGs. Thanks to everyone on these forums for helping me to work up the courage to invite some people over for a game.
