Getting Back Into Dungeons & Dragons

I decided to get back into D&D recently with the kids being old enough to play.

There’s an old adage about having a big family is ‘starting your own football team’, well I am not into football but I am a massive geek so I have got my own roleplaying group.

I decided to go for the Essentials Kit as a starting point as it seems the logical place and after some researching, I decided it was better than the actual Starter Kit

Everything you need to create characters and play the new adventures in this introduction to the world’s greatest roleplaying game.

The box set boasts everything you need to run a D&D game with one Dungeon Master and one to five adventurers. A newly designed rulebook on-boards players by teaching them how to make characters, and the included adventure, Dragon of Icespire Peak, introduces a new 1-on-1 rules variant.

I am currently painting up miniatures for our first One Shot dungeon crawl to get the kids used to the rules which I will post up shortly.

The group is looking like a nice all rounder D&D adventuring group, the character choices are…

Lvl 1 | Goliath | Barbarian

Lvl 1 | Tiefling | Fighter

Lvl 1 | Human | Wizard

Lvl 1 | Tiefling | Rogue

Lvl 1 | Elf | Cleric

The kids have even been talking about their character backgrounds and have said that the Tiefling characters are going to be brother and sister and have a shared backstory which I love and will be using that as a hook as we go on.

I look forward to playing and will post what happens as we go.
