I’m playing a role-playing game tomorrow.
Not a role-playing video game. A role-playing game. Involving dice. Possibly involving miniatures, and perhaps even a wipe-away grid mat.
I’m pretty excited. It’s been far too long. Truth be told, I don’t have a lot of experience, but the last time I was in a role-playing group, it was a lot of fun. Beer, rock music and some very light-hearted encounters involving a demon called Alan.
That was D&D 4.0, though. We’re going for something a little different this weekend.
I’ve never played any tabletop wargame, and I probably never will. It’s too expensive in terms of time and money. I love the overall setting for the Warhammer universes though. I am particularly partial to the 40k setting, but our GM is familiar with Warhammer role-playing and that’s what we’re going to do.
I’m looking forward to it. Warming up the percentile dice. Warhammer 1.0/2.0 seems to have a pretty nifty career system. I’m going to miss the video-game style action of D&D 4.0, but this should be a lot of fun.
