and so it begins ...

I'm about to start a D&D 4E campaign for my son and some of his friends. This is the set up I have.


I'm starting them out with the first Dungeon Delve (which I've placed a morning's journey outside of Fallcrest), but instead of setting it in an excavation, I'm putting the dungeon down in the ruins of an old Dwarven tower, so I can use this set of dungeon tiles that I really like.


Once they make it through the delve, they'll be encouraged to head up Kings Road to Winterhaven, where strange things are afoot...

    'tis a thing of beauty.

    Is that THE dice bag from "Happiest Days" right there in the foreground?
  • jbmallus 6y

    TPK! TPK! TPK!
    Hopefully, in the future, you'll have them play some Hackmaster ;)

    Next, you can come to my house and set up a game! ;)

    Nice screen! The one I use is small and pathetic, I have to crouch behind it and keep my miniatures in a box beside me. Would love this set up! Happy Questing!

    Nice... reminds me of my old games growing up. Gods, I haven't played in like 20 years... I still have my dice, tho, including my favorite D20 LOL

  • Rick 6y

    I miss my D&D games...hope you have a blast Wil!
  • JHG Hendriks 6y

    Love the Illuminati dice bag.

    Wil - at what age did you start teaching your son? Mine's 9 and I am just starting him out on 4ed.

    Loved the podcast of the d&d game on the wizards website. :)

    I was never one for D&D, it has too much rules.

    Focus on ROLE PLAY not slice n' dice, and you will have yourself an experience of a lifetime. Go for Warhammer. It has the "Tolkien" generic universe with a set of loose rules which makes for many creative interpretations. Just my 2c.
    D&D is cool, but it has little to do with role playing. It is Monopoly Advanced. Remember that role playing doesn't need a rule book.

    Aside from that, your gear looks absolutely adequate, from one nerd to another:)

    I don't think my brain can understand 4th ed rules! That d20 thing never thrilled me. I am a sucker for D&D circa 1979-88... AARGH the memories!

    I peed a little.

    All my friends suck and never have time to play.

    Wesley Crusher is going to be the DM - Nerd Nirvana!
    Very cool. I wanna play. :)

    Its amazing, your son and some friends and that you play RPG is great too. Greetings from Berlin. Sebastian. :)
  • Timothy Finucane 6y

    I am officially jealous. I have several years to wait for my kids to be old enough to get this stuff.
  • Mike Bogle 6y

    Dude - sooo sweet!
  • Tomi Tapio K 6y

    Nice! (found by searching for "RPG")
  • Chris Gruhl 6y

    Heh, that's pretty cool. My Dad was my first DM back when we played out of a red box and had to "color in" the numbers on the dice.
