I want to say that I’m very happy to see the D&D campaign record completed. Recording the campaign was the original purpose of this blog. If you look at the URL you’ll see this site was originally called Twenty-Sided Tale. Before DM of the Rings, before the stuff on videogames, before all the stuff about geek culture, the intent of this site from the start was to record the events of the campaign as it unfolded.

That campaign was begun in September of 2005, and ran for fifteen weekly sessions. (With the occasional week off for holidays and such.) The whole thing lasted about five months. So, the game ended about a year ago. I haven’t rolled the dice since, which is kind of sad.
I’ll probably do one more post where I detail the various alternate solutions to some of the puzzles and challenges the players faced, and talk about some of the stuff they missed. If you have any other questions, please drop them in the comments below and I’ll cover them in the wrap-up post.
Thanks again for reading.

Overused Words in Game Titles

Crysis 2 has basically the same plot as Half-Life 2. So why is one a classic and the other simply obnoxious and tiresome?
Shamus Plays LOTRO
As someone who loves Tolkein lore and despises silly MMO quests, this game left me deeply conflicted.
Trashing the Heap
What does it mean when a program crashes, and why does it happen?
