Dungeons & Dragons 1.5 Edition
We start off with Hambone's experience playing the classic fantasy themed board game Talisman for the first time. He played the recent fourth edition from Fantasy Flight.
Did you know there was an unofficial 1.5 edition of Dungeons & Dragons? There was! Beginning with Unearthed Arcana and following through Oriental Adventures, Dungeoneer's Survival Guide and the Wilderness Survival Guide, it was partly a natural evolution of the system, partly a desperate attempt to save the company from financial ruin. Stu walks us through the history.
Finally, we started playing Pendragon and we chat about character creation and the first introductory session. (Stu never explicitly states it, but the tedious bit was not the character creation itself, but rather working through the family histories).
