    I appreciate the offer. I'm not sure what the "power cards" are. I hate to see D&D stuff go to waste but I really don't know when I'll game again. Still, I have to pass. I guess I have enough "stuff". I've fallen in with a group that likes a lot of table top games. We played Zombicide Black...

    I was thinking you're name was familiar, you gave me some DM advice and encouragement back in 2008. I appreciate that! I had some great sessions with that little group. I did some gaming since that was more "theater of the mind". I guess I'm just not geared that way. My bent is more to the strategy...

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I like the roll-play vs. the role play which is why most people play D&D and similar games anyway. Combat does take a long time. I think WotC should've marketed it differently. I remember them advertising getting through 2 encounters an hour. It's more like 2 hours per...

    In January, 1603, London is in the grip of a bitterly cold winter. The air is crisp with a heavy frost that is slow to thaw. Rumors abound that the plague is once more abroad in the city. Numerous houses have already been boarded up and people have again taken to the slaughter of stray dogs,...
