Living my childhood dream

Filed under:Dungeons and Dragons — Lake Desire @ 8:17 pm

I’m finally living my childhood dream of playing Dungeons and Dragons. I’m playing with some folks in my English department and my friend Abby (the retro review writer for Cerise). We’re a big group, eight total, and half of us are ladies. We just made characters tonight. All of the numbers are kind of confusing, but the world-building and races and roles each class has in the party is pretty familiar from playing RPG videogames.

I’m a middle-aged dwarf named Olshar, which means fat moon. She has a beard and is politically radical with a martyr complex. I’m a paladin since I like tanking in MMORPGs.

I’ll post more updates with how my first D&D campaign goes! If I like it well enough, I’d eventually like to DM for an all ladies group.
