And that was almost a decade ago - does that mean the World of Skell is over 30 years old, by now?
Yes. Many fond memories of inexplicable gamer decisions, stupendous dice rolls, and friends sitting around the game table.
One of the cool things is as I've grown older my knowledge of medieval times has increased and I feel the little details bring out the DM in me. The game keeps my mind from totally accepting what nature wills. D&D, along with my children, keep me young at heart. The gods know there are enough things in this world that try to stamp out creativity and imagination.
As long as I can roll the bones....my old bones will "roll dinkus" (roll damage for those who do not speak Chexxan).
