I’m playing Dungeons and Dragons now. I play it like a champ- with a lot of whining, inability to pay attention to the plot, and constantly asking for assistance. I am that kind of player. You know, the kind of player on Saturday night that spills red wine all over the monopoly money and then takes a half hour explaining how his possibly non-existent sexy co-worker was giving him “the f-me eyes” while you’re waiting for him to make a damn decision whether or not he’s buying Figgle Farm Railroad or whatever.
You know my style.
I play with other people. Good people. Experienced people. I am not good. Or experienced. But I play it like a champ- a champ that may have had his circuits scrambled by years of trauma and alcohol abuse, but a champ nevertheless. I have a character I made up. Farson Windhoek. He’s passive-aggressive human ass with a thing for music and is considered a “bard”. I have no idea where I came up with such a character since it is nothing like my darling personality. But it’s fun to play pretend, especially in the “Dungeons and Dragons” world that’s been created by Christopher Boore as our Dungeon Master. I killed an ogre in the last episode. Or did I not say- oh. Right. Yes, we podcast our Dungeons and Dragons sessions.
SO YOU CAN HEAR ALL OF WHAT WE DO IN HIGH DEFINITION.
CHECK IT OUT. YES I DON’T HAVE VOLUME CONTROL.
So really, I’m like the drunken fratboy you hear next door who’s yelling at his television, but for some reason you stop everything to listen because the blather is amazing and the people he’s with are just interesting as hell. This is what this podcast is like. Well, no it’s better than that. It’s a full show.
It’s great too because you hear the others do their best to have a fun role playing game which they have been playing for years while struggling to not go full Bill O’Reilly Inside Edition Meltdown. (For more on these fine folks: http://www.oldschooldnd.com/writers/).
And they are playing awesome characters. A barbarian. A paladin. A dwarf. An elf (I hate elves). A monk. A Magnum P.I. All are there. On an adventure through the Forsaken Ruyn and beyond….
