WiscoDice at the Best Four Days in Gaming

Suzanne and myself made the trip this September to our first convention in well over a year and a half. Gen Con 2021 was an amazing experience. There may have been reduced capacity, typical vendors were not there, and some vendors that were there had booths that were significantly different. That didn’t make the convention any less awesome. In fact, in many ways it made Gen Con 2021 the best Gen Con to date!

There was so much to see and experience this year. With smaller crowds and lines you were able to more easily enjoy the things that you wanted to do. Events may have been hard to get signed up for, but it wasn’t so hard if you wanted to walk up and try a game. There are always no shows for events and this year was not an exception. On top of that, almost the entire Hall A was dedicated to open gaming which made that section of the convention a very happening place each evening!

Preparing Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden for Play

I always loved the R.A. Salvatore stories of Bruenor and Drizzt in Icewind Dale. At the game store one day, I saw a new campaign module for Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden. It was at that moment that I knew that I would run this campaign. It was time to get back into the DM’s chair.

It’s been several years since I have played Dungeons & Dragons (D&D). I started playing the game as a teenager and continued as a young adult, so slipping back into the comfortable chair of being the Dungeon Master (DM) for a game did not seem too daunting. Then I opened the book and found a massively open ended campaign with 12 starting quests, 10 starting locations, and a leveling system that I have never considered. Getting this thing started was going to be harder then I anticipated.

Let’s dive into the decisions I made to help kick off this D&D campaign!
