A group of us run a monthly 5e game for kids on the autism spectrum. It started over a year ago with just me running the game. Since then, I’ve recruited two other DM’s and we run a full three tables of kids.

Today I introduced my table to “Into the Borderlands” and sent them off to the Caves of Chaos. The looks on their faces when their first party member fell into a pit trap and they were ambushed by kobolds!

At the end one of the kids ran over to his dad-“Dad! You know that old adventure you said you did as a kid? The one with the Keep and all the caves? I’M IN THAT ONE NOW!”

So..keep up the good work...we’ve got a whole generation of kids we’re introducing the hobby to.

I'll just get up 3 hours early and that should be plenty of time to do updates to character sheets and print off character sheets for my game today.

Opens laptop....

'microsoft is currently making updates...please don't shut off your computer....

waits a half hour

Tries to open Hero Lab

'A significant change was made to your operating system, you'll need to move the licenses back to this computer using this menu..blah blah'

Tries to do that.

'Hero Lab requires you to download an update....

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back in the day I just put a clean sheet of paper in a 3 ring binder, Fuck this noise.

Anyone interested in a little 1st Edition Ravenloft magic on Saturday the 13th?

I feel like kickin' it old school and running I6 Ravenloft at my place., noon-5ish...or later if the group is up for it.

I'm in south mpls just about a half mile off of the blue line.

There will be pizza. There will very likely be adult beverages....and even more likely a number of dead pc's.

Other important information- we have a cat and a 12 year old boy. If you're allergic to either...take precautions. I can host up to 6 folks.

Let me know!

I came across these at Dreamhaven today. For $3 I couldn’t pass them up. I read the editorial in the issue from July,1966 and was fairly blown away. The editor, Leslie Charteris, has a rant about Hugh Hefner and Playboy magazine. It was weird. And then he mentions Ian Fleming and James Bond and it all made sense. The Saint was sort of the poor mans Bond so naturally the editor would have a grudge against Playboy who ran all of Fleming’s stuff. Really weird.

At GenCon I bought a bunch of miniatures. I got home and was resigned to the fact that once again I had bought minis and would likely never paint them.

But then..BAM. Painted. Well, some of them at least.

From my 5e game today...

I had a kid who had never played before so I was explaining dungeons and dragons to him.

Kid: so I could make my own game in my own world?
Me: yes! Totally.
Kid: so I could have disco, dinosaurs, pyramids and one-eyed Willy’s pirate ship in it?
Me:....let me tell you about Kickstarter....
