Last weekend I wanted to gather some experience using the D&D 3.5 rules (my current campaign is still using the very simple M20 rules). More and more, my players start asking questions – why a rogue gets to do extra damage in this or that situation, how much cover they should be getting, why they cannot transfer some of their to-hit bonus to their damage roll, and they start noticing the simplicity of the skill system.
And since I wanted to provide a gentle roleplaying introduction to Claudia, I offered to run the free The Wizard's Amulet by Necromancer Games. The rules worked fine, and we ended after the first combat. It was funny to see how she didn’t quite want to hurt the baby Leucrotta. After the game I decided that I shall try to have more talking and less combat the next time we try this.
I really need to find a lot more players!
(When I showed her my Fudge dice, and rolled a +4 on my first try, she had to try as well, but failed a dozen times. Her face was fun to watch. Hehehe…)
