Thoughts on 2016 and Plans for 2017
2016 was good for me as far as gaming goes. I was able to start playing again after a long time away from the table. I am now playing in a Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition game every Tuesday night and running one every Saturday. On Tuesdays, I am playing an orc barbarian in a Hoard of the Dragon Queen campaign. (I was playing a human bard until she got killed.) On Saturdays, I am the DM for an Age of Worms campaign. It was written for 3.5 but I am running it converted to 5th edition.
Earlier in 2016, I subscribed to Dungeon Crate and I have just started a subscription to RPG Crate. So far I like Dungeon Crate and will let you know what I think of RPG Crate. Reading the reviews, I have high hopes for it.
The response to this blog has been very encouraging. In January 2015 I had 58 followers. I now have 265 followers. Thank you very much! I will be adding my thoughts and ideas as well as reference material and updates to my player’s sheet. I didn’t work on my “Dragon Hunt” novel much last year, but I intend to get back to work on that this year. I expect there to be a lot of new material published for 5th edition this year. I am sure that I will be getting copies of all of the supplements, adventures, and expanded rulebooks, but I will continue to focus this blog on the Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide and Monster Manuel.
Happy new year. I hope all of your rolls are successes!
Happy new year! I love your work! 🙂
Thank you very much! I am working on several ideas for new posts. Stay tuned.
Thanks Ronny, and keep the emails coming! I like the information in them.
I have Hoard of the Dragon Queen and The Rise of Tiamat but haven’t read through them yet. I just finished reading through the PHB. I’m currently reading through Lost Mine of Phandelver so I can DM it with my wife and daughters. I assume that reading through a story/campaign beforehand is a good idea if you going to be a DM. I recently just bought the Out of the Abyss story; I really like the Drow storyline; especially Drizzt.
Talk to you later.

I haven’t read the Dragon Queen or The Rise of Tiamat because I am a player. The DM gripes a lot about it though. But yes, I can’t stress enough how much easier it is to DM an adventure if you have read through it a couple of times, at least. Drizzit is cool. I have only read one of the books and I can’t remember which one.
I’m taking my group through Tyranny of Dragons and have just embraced it’s faults and a chance for me to add my own bits into the game…like your Alabaster Portal idea. Have fun with the dragons.
Thanks for all of your contributions Ronnie. I would like to get in more play time as you did, but life always seems to have plans! Happy New Year to you as well!
Thanks Drew. Reality does sometimes get in the way of fantasy. Here’s hoping you can find more time this year for your leisure time pursuits.
Happy New Year Ronny! Feeling a bit jealous about your weekly game and look forward to you have to say about gaming in 2017.
