Episode 1 – Thunderheart Inc.

“In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.”
 – Terry Pratchett

     Gehn entered the tavern and was overcome by the smell. The smells of ale, urine, and uncleanliness hit his nostrils like a stench from a goblin arse. His entrance failed to bring any notice, as the bar was full of all types. The Rotten Apple was a hideout for all those that wanted to stay away from the sickening beauty and magic of Silverymoon, and have a quiet pint. The owner had even gotten the brawls down to only one or three a week.
     Pushing his way to the bar, Gehn the dragonborn paladin, waved down the barkeep. The old man put down the mug he was wiping and asked, “What can I do for you?”

Well, this past week I had all the new players using the D&D Insider character creator program to help them build their character, select weapons/armor and have the character sheets properly formatted. I then took all their character sheets (including power cards) in PDF format to the FedexKinko’s website for printing. I setup 2 print jobs, “Print Job 1” with 4 PDFs with just the character sheets to be printed on plain paper in black and white, and “Print Job 2” with 4 PDFs of the power cards to be printed in color on the heaviest cardstock available.

Upon announcing that I’d be hosting a Dungeons & Dragons party, I was immediately looked down upon and told “Dungeons & Dragons is evil and leads to witchcraft and Satanic worship! Why would you do this?!?”. I was shocked by this response and more so as it was presented by educated, well spoken, and generally open-minded people.

Previous: Dungeon Delves #1 – Part 1

I have to be honest, I was disappointed with the progress I showed in my last post…even though building the 3D terrain is all new to me and I am learning as I go.  I feel much better and more encouraged by tonight’s update!  Woo hoo! Continue reading
