Our lovely DM is finally back from the US so we regrouped to continue our DnD campaign. This was only slightly complicated by the fact that K had moved house during our hiatus and lost all of her character sheets. We re-rolled a new level 3 for her, and got started. As usual, we met… Continue reading Back to DnD!
Whelp, that’s it. Dear DM has a plan to travel to the US, toddler in tow, for a whole month, and we’ll be without her fantastical instruction. Since we wanted to get at least one more session in before she left we re-grouped at cafe Marlayne for a Sunday afternoon. We’d left off having defeated… Continue reading The last DnD meet up for a whole month!
