Thursday Thoughts: 2019 In Full Swing!

Less then a week into the year and I already am itching to get to some local places that sell, and have game nights for, and encourage a safe place to play for Magic! The Gathering.

With my Magic! The Gathering and Warcraft goals, I am super excited to say that this year should be no less then amazing for gaming!

The other thing that I am super excited about is the D&D one shot that I will be in with a couple friends from my raid team! (Hi Chickens, Love your faces!)

In a later post and podcast episode, I will let you know how my search is going for finding a tournament, where I am with my Warcraft goals, and how the one shot went. I am so excited, I cant even stand it at the moment!

Thursday Though’s: Finding A Campaign?

DRAGON!

So, it has been a while since I spent time in a campaign. At this point, I do not want to give up quite yet either.

With all the tools available, I do not think that I have spent enough time looking as of late. Holidays and life in general has offered up little time to find a group.

As of right now, It looks like I have the potential to be a part of a one shoot and a Warcraft themed game. I do not have a lot of detail’s on the Warcraft theme group as of yet other then it will be near the end of January.

The one shoot is also going to be sometime in January. Just not sure of a date.

Just as an fyi, the local game stores that are near me, do not provide a game night for D&D as of right now. It sucks.

So depending on how things work out in January, that will help me make a choice weather or not to DM a game for myself. If and when that will happen, I am not sure at this point. However, I will make an announcement on the blog after I reach out to the gaming communities I am a member of first.

Just a few though’s for you on this Thursday.

Thursday Thought’s: Why do online D&D campaign’s fail?

51gjhbnhskl-_sx375_bo1204203200_.jpg

I am looking for a new D&D group.

The last group that I was a part of, for a small story on what happened, the biggest issue was that life happened. Everyone was (for those of us that shown up for the few sessions that we did have) very nice and we made some headway into the campaign. The Dungeon Master is very nice and knowledgeable. I honestly have nothing bad to say about anyone or anything that had happened. At times, life has a different thing for you to pay attention to. I am not angry with anyone that was intended to be a part of the group either. Stuff just happens.

For as crappy as the situation is, it got me thinking. Why do online Dungeon & Dragon’s campaign’s fail?

Yes, I do believe that the group failed. We had an inconsistent time frame between sessions, players (who had things come up in their life and honestly that you can not be mad at them!) that did not show, and for lack of a better term we as character player’s are noobs. The intent of this particular group was to go through a dungeon crawl type of campaign and to learn mechanical ways to get through the fights in a better way. It did not lend itself to much RP; however, the interaction between the players was very good.

For as much as I would have loved for this to work out it just was not in the cards. For as inconstant as it was, I am still very happy with the short interactions that we had as a group. I honestly did and still do like the DM and the players I did interact with. Do I wish we had communicated more? Sure. Do I wish that we as a group that could have made it to sessions on a more consistent basis had a say on how this ended or continued? Yes!

For what it is worth, I did some digging around the Internet and from what I had found, other then general douchbaggery, the biggest issue that I have seen for groups and campaign’s that have failed is communication.

Weather something was changed by a DM or a player just trying to do the best for their characters that they needed to speak to their DM to change – talking about it seems to have been the biggest issue.

I know what a few of you are going to ask. Why not find a place locally that runs a game and jump on the chance and play in person? I would if there were games in session. However with the lack of interest or inconsistencies with scheduling at this point it just is not feasible for them to run a game currently.

So, I am bummed but I understand that life just happens.

Dungeon’s & Dragon’s: Dice Bag!

bagOver the weekend my family and I went to a local festival and had a great time.

There is a thrift store close and decided to check things out. I had not intended to purchase anything but I stumbled across a bag that I absolutely fell in love with. I was not sure what I was going to use it for but for a quarter you could not beat the price.

As soon as I seen the bag I knew, no matter the price, I would have made the purchase! It was way to cute to pass up. The original intent for the bag is for make up products; however, I had a different idea. So all of my dice are now in this bag and I could not be happier with my purchase!

Zephirah’s Adventure: Office Hours

dsc0673I very recently stumbled upon Adam’s youtube page while doing research for a D&D group that I was building a character sheet for. I wanted to learn more about the class that I had chosen to play and BOOM.

I really think that Adam has a lot of good ideas, has a very firm grasp on the rules of the game, and honestly a sassy attitude that I can get behind. In some ways, If I was not so new to Dungeons and Dragons, we are very similar in personalities. I tend to learn from people that have a bunch of experience in what my interest are. This case is no exception.

I do want to toss a word of caution out here for you guys and girls, their is a fair amount of cursing to where I try to limit the amount of them in a written form. I am not apologizing for what he is going to say language wise but If you will listen I am sure you will agree with the sediment.

So, how did you like the episode? Fantastic! (Yes, I loved it as well!)

Did any of you have similar situations to the writers / callers in the video? I would really love to know what you think.

Here are all of Adam’s social media links, if you liked what you had listened to, please give him a follow.

Featured Blog: The Pink Dice Chronicles!

12pcopaquepinkwithgoldIt is refreshing to see a Dungeon Master share their thoughts via a blog. It explain’s everything from how they started their journey with Dungeons and Dragons, their thoughts on various rules, and a plethora of issues that can and have come up during their sessions.

I would strongly encourage reading a blog like this. It gives a player of Dungeons and Dragons a different perspective. Also, for as infrequent as the post are for this particular blog in question, it still provides solid content and great commentary on a verity of topic’s.

Take the time to read “The Pink Dice Chronicles” here!

Now I want a set of pink dice, thanks! 🙂
