So, after several months of watching the Critical Role stream, and several other Dungeons and Dragons streams, the family has decided to attempt to play a game. The kids have grown up with the Spouse and I as gamers, but for the most part have never played a TTRPG with us, though they’ve played other RPGS throughout their lives.
As I’m the one who has most recently actually played D&D, I offered to DM the game – even though it’s been well over 30 years since I last DM’d in this system, and it’s an entirely different system than it was back then. I already had accounts at DNDBeyond and Roll20 (as well as Fantasy Grounds, but we aren’t using the latter two).
Looking over “beginner” modules, I offered up a few choices, and they thought that the Wild Beyond the Witchlight Carnival sounded the most fun, so that what we went with.
Characters were created, backgrounds chosen, a meeting-place arranged…and we began.
