Re: C&C Demo in Dallas, GA

so I ended up with 8 players ranging in age from 9 to 52 years old for a couple of hours last night. :o pretty cool.

I'll give a longer recap (with pictures) by this weekend. Just been crazy busy since last night. :)

Thanks Tyler! :) Just trying to make you guys proud as I attempt to make more roleplaying explorers in my region aware of C&C.

Re: North Texas RPG con :

eh. :( may as well count me out. I just returned from GnomeCon yesterday to turn right around and go shopping for a new washing machine. *sigh* The 12-year old machine finally gave out completely. So much for budgeting for a NTRPG road trip.

ya'll have fun storming the castle... without me. :cry:

had about 7 players throughout the day, peaking at about 5.

I've had a couple of regular sessions since that time, and I plan to hold another UnderM...

Re: Shadows of the Halfling Hall

looks like we'll see how this goes sooner than expected. My regular AD&D 2E UnderMountain group will be missing their elven wizard this Saturday due to a previous engagement. Instead of continuing for a session without him, I've convinced them to give C&C a try. 8-) I'll report back after the weekend.
