Coming Soon: More Barrowmaze... (I Hope)
Today I was lucky enough to be able to go to our RPG group at the FLGS for the first time in about 10 or 12 weeks. We spent about five hours in the Barrowmaze.
I may do a write-up of this session (sadly I didn't take my camera), but in thinking about that I realised that I've got notes of two or three sessions that I still haven't committed to the blog. This might be coming soon.
A lot has changed since I last went. In the last session I took part in (which isn't on the blog) we found a new entrance to the Barrowmaze, so a lot of new territory has been explored: I knew about that as I've continued drawing up the maps (pleasingly, some of the disparate areas have been joined up by new exploration).
Another thing is that there have been leveling-up. There are now several Level-3 and -4 players now (which is quite a big thing in B/X). I was playing a new character who, true to form, was killed. It's a bit of a running joke. We're now at the end of Year 3 (game time) and I've gone through 14 characters, all Level 1 (13 dead, one MIA). The difference in game-play is noticeable: the delve was much longer as there was no need to go back and heal up.
I'm lucky in that this weekend is one of those rare ones where we'll play both on Saturday and Sunday (though tomorrow's is in a different setting). Tomorrow we may have a couple of my other friends who I've invited along.
