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 the 1980’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 27: If you had to do it all over again, would you do anything different when you first started gaming?
I would not change a thing about when I first started gaming. There is, however, one thing that I would change. We got into A/D&D mode and got stuck in a rut. There would be other games suggested and people were always stating “Man, I need to keep playing my Elf so he can level up” or something similar. It would be false to say we never played anything else. For instance, FASERIP Marvel, V&V, Talislanta, and Palladium Fantasy all got their fair share of play. We actually could have played many more games than we did. There were several games that each of us bought but could not convince the rest of the group to give it a try. At times, some of the content would definitely influence or inspire our other gaming but we seemed to stick to just a handful of games when we had many more available. Just off the top of my head I know that we passed on GURPS and Middle Earth Role Playing just to name a few.
