So the other morning at breakfast I was telling my kids a story about a D&D session from way back in the day. My daughter asked, “Why don’t we play that anymore?”

I went into the usual blah blah blah about not enough time and how her brother didn’t seem to like it as much and how our plans for a regular group fell through and so on. It all made perfect sense and was totally correct.

Then she said, “But you have so many great stories about your old adventures. I wish we had some great stories like that from our games.”

How do you say “no” to that? I mean, seriously?

So we’re going to dust off the books and get back at it. A little, anyway. Probably a very unorganized and loose campaign. Maybe not even a real “campaign” in the typical sense. We’ll have to see. At this point the key is to get back to playing regularly. We’re going to stick with 1e AD&D. PHB, DMG, and MM only.

I’ve been pretty much out of touch with the blogs and boards since spring. I’ll be trying to get back into the swing a bit and will probably do a little posting here. We’ll see.

    The unique pleasure of being a DM and a father.

    And the unique obligation :)

    Welcome back, and good luck with the gaming. Keep at it, and try not to worry about the little details so much that you freeze up and stop. The kids will love it regardless.
