Dungeons & Chimneys: Ahoy, mateys! Welcome to Freeport!

It's on! IT'S ON!!

My D&D campaign started yesterday. Finally. After almost a month of problems and a thousand of postponed plans, we have finally started. We weren't as prepared as I would have wanted, and there was some trouble during the session, but in the end everything was OK.

Dungeons & Chimneys: Mustering my players!

Greetings, ladies, gentlemen and goblins!

As I said in my previous post, I will soon start a D&D game in my university, inspired by my adventures in Guildford.

I managed to convince two people to play along, and a third one is interested in have a try at least for a while. This means I managed to find a total of three players for my campaign. I wish I had a fourth one, but for the time being I will have to fill that gap myself with a character of my own - which will be an excellent chance to try other playing styles.

This can change in the near future, but the party will most likely be composed by a ranger, a mage, a monk and a cleric (that's me).

Dungeons & Chimneys: Introduction

What is this? A new post on this long-forgotten blog? And a new section, too? Astonishing! Could this be the umpteenth attempt of resurrecting The 9th Circle of Hell? Yeah, it is!

"What is to expect now? Are you going to talk about dungeons? And chimneys?? You have finally gone nuts, haven't you?" These are some of the questions I suppose my readers (the two of them) will be asking. What is the purpose of this new section? Easy answer. As you might know if you have been following my other blog (in Spanish), I have been playing a lot of Dungeons & Dragons in the UK, and that is one of the things I will miss most, for the UJI has no Games Society in which to spend hours rolling dice and attempting to murder Tim.

Given this situation, I felt sad about not being able to play D&D anymore. Suddenly, I had an epiphany (noun; an illuminating discovery, realization, or disclosure), possibly caused by the British lack of sun: I could be a DM! I could run my own D&D game! I didn't feel that I was prepared for this responsibility, but I couldn't hurt to try.
