The last time my gaming group ran a regular Dungeons & Dragons game was in 2008. It was our Dark City campaign, set in our homegrown city of Obsidian Bay and using the Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition rules.
Summer is winding down, which means the chances that my gaming group will have a full gaming session are going up. This week saw six of us get together to continue our Weird Pulp campaign, which had been stalled since June.
I've started running. Not well. Not quickly. Not for long. But I am running ... and slowly making progress (where "progress" is defined as no longer feeling like I'm going to collapse after running for three blocks).
Running was never my thing. My sister's thing, yes, but never mine. I was more about cycling -- I was happy to go on on a meandering 20-mile ride and have fun trying to find my way back home.
I'm back from GenCon 2014. As always it was an exhausting-but-fun four days of gaming, preceded by a few days visiting with my wife's relatives relatives in southern and central Indiana.
One of the big reasons I come to GenCon is to play games, but it's not the only reason: shopping is another. In 2000 I bought my first Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition Player's Handbook there, in 2014 I'll by my first 5th Edition PHB. This is where I got my Battlestar Galactica and Serenity RPG books, as well as more d20 sourcebooks than I care to mention.
