The Halflings Gem - Conclusion To The Icewind Dale Trilogy
All that being said, reading books that take place in the realms, has got me re-reading a lot of my old D&D books. I have the menzoberranzan campaign setting, the FR one and the Dale's sourcebook (which is apparently highly coveted). I also just picked up a cheap copy of Myth Drannor, that i'm currently pouring over.
As to wether I will run the realms again I'm not sure as of yet. I do miss Elminster. As I posted the other day I sent home one of my players with my old 2nd edition books, in hopes that he may get into DMing as well (that makes me smile), but I also sent him home with the first 2 books in the trilogy. Of course there is a possibility that we may end up in the realms after he finishes them. I guess the thing about the Realms is that is very much the typical type of campaign world that we all quite like (or secretly like). For instance just latetly I started working on a big Hex map that's 11x17. looking back at it, its slowly becoming my own version of the realms. Not to say that I should stop myself from creating my own campaign world. I do love that idea, because no one can say "hey that's not right!". Much like playing in a band when you write your own material, nobody can say your playing it wrong.
We have agreed as a group that we are going to need a re-set as far as RPGing is concerned. As to wether we play D&D, Basic Fantasy, or AFF, is to be decided eventually. The one good thing that we have agreed to is a semi weekly game. Which begs the question "Shane do you have time to pull this off?".
That was a ramble!
