End-of-Week Elmore (10/28/16): Basic D&D Alignments in Action!

I love this Elmore update of that old illo of the Basic D&D alignments! 

Speaking of Basic D&D, I know I'm way overdue for a recap of the first session I ran with my RPG newbs last Friday. I hope to get that written up and posted sometime this weekend. 

And speaking of Lawful, Neutral, and Chaotic, I attempted to explain alignment to the newbs, but by they they'd already had their fill of my teaching them the mechanics. They just wanted to game! 

Trust me, much hilarity did ensue, and a bloody good time was had by all!

Happy gaming, all!

End-of-Week Elmore (10/21/16): GAME DAY!!!

Woohoo! Tonight, I'm running my first roleplaying session with adults since...I don't know when! There are some cool folks in my neighborhood who are "gamer-curious," and it got around that I play D&D. The rest is history! As far as I know, none of them have played D&D before, so I get to introduce them to it!

I'm running a session tonight using Moldvay's Basic! Generated a bunch of characters with one of the many handy-dandy websites out there, so the players have about 15 characters to choose from for the game.

I'm using the Points of Light setting by Robert Conley. And the module is (drumroll please!) B1: In Search of the Unknown! Of course! Why not, right?

Expect a full report of the session soon! Happy gaming, all!

End-of-Week Elmore (10/14/16): Nice Geas!

"Hey," she said as he placed the irresistible compulsion upon her. "You got a nice geas right there!"

Big things are happening on the home front, folks! More details in the coming days, but here's a hint: I'm about to live up to the title and intent of my blog! 

Have a great weekend, happy gaming, and stay tuned!

End-of-Week Elmore (10/7/16): Warriors of the Night

I come back to the old dusty roleplaying blog after a month or so, and what do I see? My blog link widgets are gone! Anyone else experiencing this right now?

Great job, Blogger!

Anyway, a quick google and I find out that the crack Blogger engineers are working on doing...something to the widgets. But have no fear, they say, all the blog link widgets will return, with all blog links intact.

Yeah, well, believing is seeing in this case, for sure.

PLEASE, Blogger, give me my links back!

Oh, and happy October everyone! Best damned month every created!
