One for the Gamers....

My mind has been evilly polluted by my two closest and oldest friends in the world. I know now what hit points and armor class are. I understand what D20 is.

Yes, I have begun participating in role playing games.

It's not like I don't have enough bad habits already.

On the up side, I've made some solid new friends, and I have something to look forward to every week. On the downside, I have a new hobby. It's not like there's enough hours in the day or anything.

At any rate, I've been corrupted enough to find this funny.

And this.

And this one's for "Nomac". This ain't going to be me. Ever again. Never trust a hobgoblin.

A lawful good halfling never hurt anybody! Although, I have crossed paths with a dwarf that that handed my pride to me.

It's the darn hobgoblins you've got to watch out for, though....

What, no Email address on your blog?

So this is the first time you ever gamed? Most people start in high school or, at times, college. They find that it is a great way to have a social life and then stick with it through adulthood. It is sort of like the weekly poker game except that no money changes hands and the conversation is less rambling.

Every year I attend GenCon, the largest gaming convention in the world. I attend the one in Indianapolis (there are actually 3, with one in Europe and another in California).

About 30,000 people show up for the Indianapolis show, which is far short of the 100K which attend the San Diego Comic Con. Still, we are rather proud of it.

Drop me a line if you ever want to go to a convention. There are a few tips I can give you to make it a more enjoyable experience.
