This post is part of a series of posts in the D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Challenge. The information in many of these posts is related to events that occurred primarily in the1980’s. Since it is now 2014, I can not guarantee complete accuracy with such a large passage of time but I will present the events and information as best as I can recall.
Day 25: Longest running campaign/gaming group you’ve been in.
The only constants in the longest running gaming group I have been in were Jamie King and me. We began gaming together in the fall of 1980 and would continue to do so until the summer of 1991. That was the year that the majority of the gaming group was seniors. Upon graduation, five of us had joined the military and would soon leave out for various destinations all over the globe.
Over the years, others would come and go at the game sessions. There were times that my brother Mark would play A/D&D with us. Our mutual friend Dan would join in but it was mainly when it was something other than A/D&D. He was not fond of the class & level system because his older brothers had convinced him that other systems were “superior”. The stoner kid down the street – I can not remember his name – would play but he was mainly into the live action events. For several years, the Carman brothers (Ray and Neal) gamed quite a bit with us and that was when we played the greatest variety of games; Talislanta and Palladium Fantasy were some of the most often played.
