Is it necessary for another "blog" to exist on the world wide web concerning Dungeons & Dragons 4E? In the generality of things and to make sure that the world goes round...not at all. But for whatever reason, I do feel that by joining the ranks of blogger, my life (and possibly the lives of others) will be that enriched if not at least captivated from that wonderful creative outlet known as the role playing game. Dungeons & Dragons to be precise.
My primary goal with this account is to notate the adventures of the campaign dubbed "Paper Legends" that has just taken off. Filling the role of recap and putting it all together in a somewhat more story like format. Hooray for reference! After that I will be sharing my thoughts, feelings and ideas about the games that I have taken part in or just cool things that I've stumbled upon. Toss in a tip or two with possible tutorials and we're good to go.
I've always been fascinated by the role playing game since 4th or 5th grade but never really got to experience it till last year at the age of 27. The idea of RPG video games were also always fascinating to me but I could never get into it as I found the whole grinding to level up before facing so and so boss guy tedious and very boring. It still amazes me that I have so much intrigue from the worlds of Final Fantasy when all I have is maybe an hour tops of actual play time.
I finally got to play D&D late last year and it's been a blast. This has been one of the biggest deals to me in entertainment since my dad bought me and my sister a Nintendo Famicom (I was born in Malaysia). Getting to collectively experience and shape a story with friends over food, booze and funny shaped dice in order to let my imagination run wild? Heck yes! And I'm coming back for more!
