This weekend I’ll be attending my first gaming conference at Rice University called Owlcon. I’m going mainly to Dungeons and Dragons, but apparently there are some LARPs at the event too. I’m heard about these activities, but assumed they are for the diehard fans (who have the costumes and weaponry and know how to speak in ancient tongues) and not for casual weekend gamers like myself. Honestly, I have no idea how it will go.
I bought the D&D 3.5 books a few months ago (knowing they would go out of date in a few months — boo, hoo). Honestly, I’ve only spent a few hours reading the rules. I look forward to seeing how gameplay differs.
