In about four hours I will be seated at a large table with a cup of coffee and a character sheet. Yes, I am playing my first round of D&D in what must be five years.
I have played with this group before, however, there’s a new guy joining us, which is pretty cool. We tend to play the same characters every time, so I expect that I will have to make another dwarf fighter. Even if that’s the case, I think it’s a small sacrifice to get to play again.
Wish me luck.
I have often wondered why Dragonlance died here on the blog. From a business perspective one could be excused for believing that the world of Dragonlance would be a perfect platform for expanding into several different areas such as toys, movies and so on. Now, I am not going to go into a long discourse about this subject here, however, I will point to the Star Wars franchise as a blue print for how this could be done.
I am definitely getting my Star Wars on these days. I am reading the Thrawn trilogy, and I spend time scouring the internet for news about the The Force Awakens. There are many interesting aspects of the way Disney approaches the rejuvenation of Start Wars that are similar to the way especially Marvel but also DC has managed their story lines. I wonder if there are lessons in here that might have worked for Dragonlance?
