Today I have no Character creation notes to post, because last night I actually ran a game. I had the privilege to teach someone how to game. It went well, so well in fact that I felt refreshed about players and the hobby.
I had to choose something for him learn with, at first I thought Big Eyes,Small Mouths would be a good choice because of the simplicity of the system. Upon further thought however since he was completely new to the hobby I wanted to familiarize him with all the dice types. I also needed something I knew well enough to be totally confident of, and something I could throw together real quick.
There was only one choice for me, AD&D 2ED.
He took to it real well, the game was fun and filled with a good hearted mirth. We only played for two and a half hours but it was a good solid opening. He had a great time and was interested in his character, he seemed excited to come back next week for a full game session. Hopefully next week I can add to the players.
I had more fun running a game then I have had in awhile, I am very heartened and stoked not only to keep running games but to show more people the hobby.
After a few adventures we may switch it up to another game, but as long as we are having fun why not keep playing? Damn I am excited!
