Part 1 here, looking at the character creation process.

Now it's time for reflection of my running of the game, how my house rules worked and how I dealt with the players.

1st Campaign Session Reflection Part 1: Character Creation

So way, way back at the beginning of January we played our first session of my Ionia campaign. This was my first time running a campaign that wasn't entirely traditional D&D, having only run 7 (I think) sessions of Keep on the Borderlands before and having never played D&D as a PC, so there has been a steep learning curve.

The first session was Death Frost Doom, an opening act before the sandbox starts properly. Players were dropped at the foot of the mountain with starting equipment. Here are some thoughts on how the session went, about time I did this with things in real life settling down and giving us a good chance of playing again. I'll be splitting this up into sections, looking at different parts of the session.

New Old School Minis

Things have settled down a little and there is more time for hobby activities, so hopefully I can get some more regular posts up. For now, here's some pictures of some new models that arrived this morning, courtesy of Miniature Heroes. MH did a competition for the New Year, where by liking their Facebook page you were entered into a draw to win a £10 gift voucher and my girlfriend entered on my behalf. Unbeknown to us, we won, and only found out this weekend, so straight away we claimed the prize and placed an order.
