I spent part of my weekend playing a different game.
It was the first time I have played Dungeons and Dragons with the new rules, and so things had to be re-explained to me – and most of it was done in Wow terms because the people I play with also play wow.
There were epic battles and M&m’s
Epic Bosses, and magical creatures
and my Pirate Wench - as an unpainted figurine, Aka the Human fighter Mandra I am playing.
My character was being introduced into the campaign because a warlock party member went Afk in real life, and in game bits of his body was found at an abandoned camp. The Magic hand said that he is still alive, however. I joined the party after proving my strength by defeating the party members in arm wrestles are we are all off seeking the missing key fragments as part of a massive quest on an island.
It was good to have a break from wow, , and yes still be a little geeky. Pretty much everything can be explained in wow terms. Tank dps, range ( the shaman gets a pet though not the archer.) – abilities have cool downs ( once per encounter abilities / once per day abilities / and free will abilities – there is armor with bonus. Magical items to wear, and lots of fun to be had with Rp. So .. whats that smell. Ew it must be the half orc.
So an afternoon of fighting netted us 300 xp each.
