And so our thrilling game of Second Edition D&D comes to an end. I managed to survive my serious case of self-inflicted deadly poison long enough to wander off to do the job, alone, with incomplete information. Josh cast his one spell and had to take a nap. Chris took no actions whatsoever, thereby making him the winner by virtue of being the person to make the fewest number of idiotic blunders.
Also there was something about Jedi and fish people in there? I don’t know. I wasn’t really paying attention to that stuff.
The D&D seems to have gone over well. We’re currently talking about maybe doing some more of this, perhaps outside of Spoiler Warning. We’ll see.

People were so worried about the boring gameplay of The Old Republic they overlooked just how boring and amateur the art is.
