The littlest gamer

I hate to do another “Wow, it sure has been a long time since I last posted!” post, but, well, it sure has been a long time since I last posted. What have I been up to over the last few months? The last several months have not been entirely devoid of gaming, but the bulk of my attention has gone into the care and feeding of this little 1HD creature:


Baby Gamer is shown here receiving the priceless gift of her first D&D rulebook. Unfortunately she responded to this gift by squirming around and sticking out her tongue—perhaps she inherited her father’s Rolemaster genes, or perhaps she’s just holding out for 4th edition. Either way, as soon as I can buy a set of giant-sized dice that she can’t easily ingest, we’ll have her rolling up a character.

That’s the long-term plan, at least. For the time being I’d be happy if she would just sleep for more than a few hours straight. Mommy and daddy are running dangerously low on Endurance points.
