It’s Sunday Brunch time, but that doesn’t mean we are ready to forget about last night’s fun. Saturday night was Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) night for many of the WiscoDice crew. What better way to keep the fun going than to play a D&D inspired board game and eat some homemade deep dish pizza.
The Game….Roll Player
Roll Player by Thunderworks Games is a game in which you are building a hero. This hero is formed based on backstory, character traits, and race goals selected during set up. These goals are obtained by players drafting dice and purchasing enhancements at the market. Even if you are not a D&D fan (like me), this is a challenging and enjoyable game.
This game is played so frequently here that we have all the expansions, which add additional enhancements to your character build, such as familiars. (Fiends and Familiars expansion) One expansion, Monsters and Minions, also adds a way to test your characters abilities as they battle. These expansions are just that, expansions for the game, definitely not needed to enjoy repeated plays.
In today’s game Ben created a Purist Wrathborn Wandering Thief that was accompanied by a Serendipitous Jackalope. I created a Free Spirited Magician Gnome that grew up as a Street Urchin. Her familiar was a Resilient Dragul Wolf. Ben’s Wrathborn beat the Gnome by a very close margin
The Food…Deep Dish Pizza
A long time staple of my husband’s D&D sessions is pizza. Therefore, we “had” to make pizza for brunch today. Our family enjoys Chicago-style deep dish pizza, so as part of of pandemic baking adventures, we have been working on perfecting our own version. Today we used the crust from the Food.com Chicago Style Deep Dish recipe. Toppings, in order from bottom to top, included: mozzarella cheese (not pre-shredded), Italian sausage, onion, and yellow pepper, pureed canned tomatoes, and topped with grated parmesan.
Look for our posts on how the Dungeon Master (DM) is preparing the Icewind Dale adventure. Additionally, watch for our upcoming podcast where the DM and other players discuss how the player characters are faring.
