Online Labyrinth Lord in the Wasteland of Gath

  The journey begins....
I got to play in my first ever online game earlier tonite. Christian of the Destination Unknown blog encouraged me to play a quick session in his Wasteland of Gath game. I had a fantastic time. I've been corresponding with Christian for awhile now, and it was wonderful to have a "face to face" talk/game session with him. I had worried about the tech issues and my limited abilities with technology but we had no issues during the game.
 Gathering and burning the bones of the unquiet dead for a funerary rite to THE Metal Gods
Proper graves and burial rites for the two souls at peace.
Thanks again Christian!!

Guardians of the Galaxy volume 2

My wife and I saw Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 today. We both really enjoyed it. We couldn't decide if we like it better than the first one. All in all it was a fun movie and if you liked the first one then you will most likely enjoy this one as well. This one is chocked full of Easter Eggs, and I will need to watch it another time or two to get many of them. I'm a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic from way back and there are some great tie-ins to the comic series. Also there are several scenes at the end as the credits roll (5 in all I believe) so don't leave until the end.
From a gaming perspective this one has some fun fodder to use in your sci fi RPG's!


Friday Night Ravenloft!

Last night we resumed our 5E Ravenloft game, I'll avoid spoilers, but suffice to say the first adventure in the Ravenloft campaign is quite tough. The DM really knows how to run the game and the other players are fantastic gamers. I've been playing since '79 and I really find myself challenged by the skill and ability of this group. I'm trying to get my head around the various nuances of 5E, this group is not only helping me make the transition to 5E but are making me a better player. Which rocks.  We finished the first Ravenloft adventure (Death House) Holy Crap was it challenging. The DM said he was impressed that we all made it out alive, great tactics and teamwork got us through, it is a TOUGH adventure for the recommended levels. I now have a 3rd level Tiefling Rogue!   Even Strahd showed up for a cameo! The DM has the Ravenloft board game so is using the minis from that! Good stuff.
It is so great to be gaming again!  Hope you all have a great weekend and get to roll some dice!
Take care, B.B.
