So Dom and Rob play DnD very often.. And I have never played. After countless days of them breathing down my neck to play, I gave in.. We drove to the liquor store, bought more beers than we should have and got all set up to play some DnD.
We had our buddy from Roll4Adventure come and be our DM (Don’t I sound official?) And he did a hell of a job. I’m not sure if everyone that DM’s a game of Dungeons and Dragons is like this, but he was the Gordon Bombay of DnD.
I’m not going to lie, I was thrown off by the name Dungeons and Dragons. I thought we were going to be screaming “HEAR YE HEAR YE” and playing with fake swords in a room that smells like Funyuns. But to my surprise, it wasn’t like that. We sat there and played a video game in our own heads. We chose the next level, we decided how we dealt with adversity throughout the game. We even chose to go to a bar before we went to go steal a spyglass from this old dick. That’s what stood out to me. When you play a video game, they tell you where you have to go and what you have to do. But in DnD, you decide where you want to go and what you want to do, to achieve the goal.
There is no other game that I have played that is like this, and for it to be a table top game is sick. I was deleting beers at an alarming pace, and playing a clown named Hamilton.
I want to take this time to apologize to all Dungeons and Dragons players. I have talked shit about this game and I completely go back on everything I have said. This game is the tits and I look forward to playing it again.
Shout out to Shawn and the guys over at Roll4Adventure for recording our crossover episode of my first time playing.
