I started playing DnD as a kid. Very similar to a Stranger Things kind of vibe – DnD got popular, friends played casually, and I really enjoyed the books.
There was a hobby shop near my Dad’s office in Princeton NJ, right near the university. I would walk there and buy the pewter metal miniatures.
There were rows and rows of them in glass cases. Glorious. In fact, right now painting miniatures is one of my favorite hobbies.
Like a lot of people, as I grew up there was a lapse in playing DnD. Now and then I would get nostalgic and read the Monster Manual.
Over the past few years since 5e was released, I’ve really started getting back into it. Currently, I run a campaign online for some friends and my brothers, and we also play a side-sesh just to mix things up.
It’s a great way for us to keep in touch since we don’t live close together.
We started with Fantasy Grounds but have moved over to Foundry VTT.
This site is a way for me to talk about my experiences and try to make others’ games just a little bit better.
