We're talking about Dungeons and Dragons and the like here. If you don't know what that is, stick it in Google.

Currently we are playing a couple of 4ed DND campaigns. One is set in the Forgotten Realms, following loosely from the events of our previous campaign below. The other is set in Earthdawn, also following loosely from the events of our earlier Earthdawn campaign.

Before these ones, Alex DMed a campaign set in the Forgotten Realms. This was based on the the Bastion of Broken Souls, culminating in the fight against the ancient wyrm Ashardalon. I played my first real female character - an acrobatic fighter named Tali.

We also finished an Earthdawn campaign DMed by Giles that we started in late 1997, involving an educational trip for a Prince of Jerris. My character was an Obsidiman Earth Elementalist named Kerac with a slightly warped sense of humour. I'd tell you a bit more about him, but then I'd have to kill you.

Earthdawn is a bit of a different system - it has opportunity for good role playing and the game mechanics are quite good, but the character development is a bit limited due to the class restrictions. If you haven't seen/played it, have a look at the Living Room Games site. If you're looking for good resources, have a look at my Links page, where most of the Earthdawn sites on the web are rated. Or go to my Earthdawn site for our campaign.

In the past we also occasionally took time out to play a Gurps mystery series set in late 19th century London - the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
