[meta] Enter the Age of Worms

Posted in: Girl Gamer,Meta-gaming by Ariel on June 29, 2011

We struggled with Oriental Adventures. It is a great setting and challenging, but the ebb and flow of life events and the unfamiliar mythology are what did us in, in my opinion. So, we are back to our roots: D&D 3.5 and back in an epic adventure — The Age of Worms. It is fun because this is the same universe as Shackled City but with new 1st level characters. Both for the fun of new personalities and some new faces at the gaming table, we rolled new characters.

We’ll get to know them better in the coming weeks. For now, Angel’s character is a gnome named Lily Folker — Fizznip to her friends. Next, Mawley is Taj’s new human fighter. Our former sorceress turns in her staff for a sword. My new character is Ariel, a half elf cleric. Yeah, going totally against type (not) with a cleric.

Next is Olivia’s new character Vakka — a half orc cleric who believes in transcendence through alcohol. Chica is new-comer Judy’s halfling ranger. She rides a chicken. Yeah, total win. Grrriel is Michelle’s half orc character. She and Vakka are cousins. Kurboom is a gnome sorceress, played by Adrienne and Zuffy is a half elf ranger played by Shalon.

Big group and one human. Huh. Bunch of rugrats. Well three little folk. And a chicken. And our own Sarah (Acgar, the half dragon) is taking the DM helm. We are honored to have using her time, energy and humor to make our gaming night each Wednesday.

Here’s our initial group portrait:

[meta] Some Gaming Fun

Posted in: Fluff,Meta-gaming by Ariel on January 10, 2010

I try to point the camera at my friends sometimes and not just at their Dungeons & Dragons minis. Here’s Tad showing us how Ian’s sweet Matrix-like move is gonna work.

Taj and Angel listen to our DM as she describes the scene.

When Myntilly died the other night we had the traditional chocolate binge. Something about chocolate just facilitates the grieving process. Speaking of eating….

This is an old picture but still one of my favorites of Sarah. It also shows old friend Melissa, who’s moved to Arizona.

Last, there’re hardly ever pictures of me, so here’s a (fairly) recent picture of me from our trip to Mt. Rainer.
