Here's why I like basic D&D, I'm bringing a bag of dice, my copy of basic, and the dungeon in a bag. That's it! No 3 large tomes, no remembering the DM screen, or minis, no having to bring large pools of dice, or a calculator for that matter. Just the small rules book, the dungeon and a couple of dice and we are good. Of course add imagination.
Now to the Endless tunnels, honesty a really great module, I dunno how many times I've read it, I started playing it one night after a 5e game with my players. I believe it has 5 dungeon levels in the nice throw back blue! There's a dragon in there, a crazy wizard, all kinds of random bad guys, traps, etc. The module isn't really set anywhere, so by happenstance It will be set within Thunderrift (which I've been having a love affair with).
Now all I gotta do today is wander over to +Dyson Logos blog and grab one of the awesome character sheets he has and I'm good to go.
So tomorrow after presents, and a few rum & eggnogs, the boys will be off to battle kobolds in the first level of the dungeon.
Should be fun!
Do you have any plans for Christmas gaming?
