So I got to thinking at work when looking at 4th Edition books online and reading the reviews Curt had posted. It has come to my attention that what is the point? What is the point of playing if nobody is availabe, or when people are they putt around the internet half paying attention while the few who take it seriously only get so much enjoyment. Now we have all done this and I count myself no different. In fact my schedule has always been wonky. But then I got to thinking some more.
If I am taking a day a week to see people in person or spending a few hours every few days to play WoW then why the hell can I not take the time to play D&D. Just playing WoW I have been able to play with Curt, catch up, talk to Chris, do some questing together and having a good time. So why can we not do that with D&D? The idea pool is not dry as their are constant campaign suggestions.
Why go to GenCon even apart from the coolness factor?
When was indeed the last time that 2, 3 or 4+ of us got together and slayed a dragon. Not coming to you? Me neither
Well that is going to change folks. You may have noticed my responses in the 4th ed rule book thread. Cause personally I would play 20 hours of D&D rather then a game of WoW or AoC. So the gears continued to go.
Now personally if I was Curt I would be down that most games got a handful of characters in or none at all and not want to run much of anything. But I say we do the good man who takes his time to prepare all this stuff for us the time it takes to give him what he needs to make an awesome game.
So with that in mind I suggested we do a game where we are explorers investigating a cavern which we think is ruins of some sort. From there game goes on, no worrying about meeting, back to basics. Game would take place in Eberron as Realms is getting a 4th Ed overhaul. Thing in mind for the game
– Every thursday 7 – 11 (4 hours)
– We play with whoever is there though I would like if we could get a 75% attendance record. If you cannot make it and loose out on cool things (tough shit)
A concept I read about and would like to try is buying a $20 audio mic for omni directional recording for voices. This is so we can conferance from a single location to Curt over Skype. This means that we can group up together and play without being seperated so to speak. Because distractions, internet surfing, even playing video games has occurred and then people ask questions like what happened for the past 15 min while. So for others and Curt it can be insulting and annoying.
Also we can keep books in a single location, kinda get that frat house spirit of gaming again.
So far those I have contacted this afternoon and are down with said schedule are:
Neil, John, Curt (obviously), myself and even Clifford
Clifford is available only if we can do the conferance thing though since he is still sans internet.
Everyone is over tonight so characters shall be made!
Edit: Oh noes, the spellingz!!!
