Ah, it has been awhile since I have blogged. I think I have missed a milestone somewhere. Doesn't matter much, just haven't been in the mood to write much out on here.
However, I decided that today, I would sit down and try to write up something...
Why? Well, first off, I had a great experience last night with my gaming group. We are doing something really odd and a bit old school. I am rolling all of the dice. Yes, to some, that is kind of annoying and prefer to roll it themselves. My players do get to roll something, initiative. And, once and again, I will have them roll a die for a random encounter check.
I find that without really working with a written out "rule system," though there are elements of 2E and 3E I am using, there is little arguing and more interaction with the players and some of the NPCs.
Apologizes, my mind is all over the place. I was reading one of Zak's posts and that made me try and find the rpg he was talking about. Can't find it at all. Then, I was reading Hack& Slash's posts here and here.
I will try and readjust and work on the next blog to talk more about the game. Though, I will say that towards the end of the night, I thought I would have a TPK when the dwarf attacked the leader of a bunch of cultists. It was four PCs, against nine cultists. In the end, they were broken, battered and bruised, but survived.
