I'm feeling the hankering for a D&D campaign. This is problematic, considering I'm moving in the very near future. Maybe I'll run it online, maybe I'll rope some players in Pittsburgh. Doesn't really matter- this is the first time in a long time I've gotten an idea for a campaign. My style is always "throw shit at the wall and see what sticks"- I try and let the characters guide the campaign, and I just provide the back-drop.

This formula works better for one-offs and short-run campaigns than for big epic storytelling. But I want to do big epic storytelling. A fantasy campaign in D&D sounds like a good method.

Oh, and all the characters have to be 1st level mages. Because I'm a dick. I was inspired by this:

I actually have a general outline for a story. I may even draw a World Map.
  • Not related, but would you and the lovely mrs., if she's so inclined, mind popping in to my journal? There's a topic there that's friends-locked, but that I think you'd both have some really, really, really valuable feedback on.
    • I will think on it- I want to ensure that I have good advice for you. I'll also run it past the missus.
      • Thanks. This is either walking in to a dream or walking in to a shitstorm. I'm thinking of this interview more as a very high-level discussion. If they and I don't agree on direction and process, then I'm not going to want anything to do with it. So what I'm going to spend this weekend doing is thinking through what systems ought to be implemented.

        Especially on testing/QA/QI thoughts, systems, theories, etc. would be warmly welcomed.
  • You folks any closer to home-purchase-ment?
    • We've got a sublet for a few months, over in Shadyside. With any luck, we'll find and close on a house by August, when the lease runs out.
