What a great weekend for gaming!
Friday Night I went to my regular 2nd Ed game. We were missing some players so I got to bring along my oldest son. We got there and more players were missing. So we created some new characters living in the same world with the idea that they could be alternates for anyone that drops into the game or we could even switch from our primary characters to these. Some hiccups, but all in all a good night and a great bunch of characters.
Sunday Morning I registered for my GenCon games. I didn't get everything I wanted, but I still got plenty. Going to be playing some Ubiquity and Mage the Ascension for the first time in years.
Sunday Afternoon. Again, missing characters. This time my youngest son crashed on the couch from his night of playing paintball. So my oldest wanted to play our 1st Ed game and finish up the Caves of Chaos. Instead I had him take one of his alternate characters, an assassin, and discover that Mendel the Merchant was part of the Slave trade to and from the Caves. This will play nicely when they hit the A series later.
Merchant killed, plot discovered. All in a good day's work. Now they just need to clear out caves A, B and C and they can move on to the next adventure.
