I totally missed Friday Night Videos the other night. Sorry. Insane day at work. I didn't even know about Paris till I got home Friday night.
OneBookshelf is running their annual "Teach your Kids to Game Week" with lots of sales on introductory material for kids.
While I totally applaud such efforts, I think back to how I learned and how I taught my own kids and we all started with D&D.
In fact my oldest son has been playing for close to 11 years now. He is still playing his first character in our Dragonslayers game. We began the game in early 2005 with "The Cave of the Stinky Goblin" and now have a host of epic-level bad asses.
This weekend we even took some time to play the children of the Dragonslayers, the Order of the Platinum Dragon in the next part of the Slaver's series. The big "reveal" is coming soon and I can't wait to spring it on my players.
