I've mentioned in several posts over the last week or so that a new D&D campaign was brewing, but I never saw this coming. Someone else in my gaming group has agreed to be the DM. Despite the fact that the last time I wrote about my brother I was poking fun at him, he has definitely elevated himself to heroic status with his agreement to run the game next week. I probably shouldn't get too excited. The last time he mentioned running a campaign, I ended up with this. Hopefully any work that I do this time won't go to waste.
Potential waste of energy or not, I am excited beyond belief because I honestly can't remember the last time I actually got to play a roleplaying game. Sure, life behind the screen is awesome, but every once in a while it has to be nice to play the game without all of the pre-game responsibilities.
4th Edition D&D is the system. The setting? That hasn't been detailed yet, but I think it is safe to assume that my brother will follow the First Rule of Dungeoncraft (never create more than you must) and stick with just a small town and a dungeon.
The only question is... now that I will/might actually get to play, should I go back to one of the drow I was planning on using last year? Should I go with a personality-based archetype? Should I come up with something new?
When I do decide what I want to play, I'll post the character info and sheet. Suggestions are more than welcome!
