RPGs with Kids: So Much Fun

I run an RPG group for children.  Well, we're a general tabletop gaming group, actually, but D&D is the current focus.  For the past few years, we've mainly played board games with an occasional go at the D&D or Star Wars: Edge of the Empire starter sets thrown in.   We've always hovered at between 3… Continue reading RPGs with Kids: So Much Fun

Hobby Update 09/09/18: Oh, Lovecraft, You Need to Dial it Back…

It's not been a very game-heavy week, but I have managed to squeeze in just a little bit of hobby gaming. First up, my after school group embarked on their first proper Dungeons & Dragons session.  For some, this was their first shot at D&D or RPGs in general.  I didn't manage to get any… Continue reading Hobby Update 09/09/18: Oh, Lovecraft, You Need to Dial it Back…

Hobby Update 02/09/18: Terraforming the Sword Coast

There was no '5 on Friday' this week as I've been rather pressed for time, and so have not been reading many blog posts.  I considered doing this on Friday afternoon, between getting home from work and people arriving for games, but I fell asleep!  After my unplanned nap, my focus was on a bit… Continue reading Hobby Update 02/09/18: Terraforming the Sword Coast

Hobby Update 26/08/18: Kings of Pandemic

We gave the Hobby update a skip last week, so it's a double feature today! Last Monday, we broke out a few games down in Lybster.  We started off with some Pandemic.  I was the only one who'd played the game before, but it actually went quite well.  We kept a good handle on the… Continue reading Hobby Update 26/08/18: Kings of Pandemic

Hobby Update 29/07/18: One Construct and His Blade

We're back up north, having spent a couple of weeks visiting family, buying a new car, seeing friends and generally chilling in the Central Belt.  It's always nice to go off somewhere, but I like coming home. On Wednesday, I headed down to Lybster for one of my D&D groups.  We've been using the Portland… Continue reading Hobby Update 29/07/18: One Construct and His Blade

Choosing an RPG for a New Group

I've got a lovely opportunity coming up.  Some old friends are interested in trying out a roleplaying game and I'm delighted to be their GM.  I love GMing.  I like playing RPGs, but GMing is where my heart is.  I like telling stories and working with the players to really create something special. Thing is,… Continue reading Choosing an RPG for a New Group

Hobby Update 01/07/18: Onward to Strahd

A little late this week, but then I've not really done all that much, hobby-wise, apart from a bit of D&D. The first of these sessions was my Lybster group.  We stormed a bandit outpost that we really had no business storming.  It didn't help that several members of the group did not follow the… Continue reading Hobby Update 01/07/18: Onward to Strahd
