It's been a busy week. I don't recommend having 3 teen-agers at once, it can be rather taxing. I have begun reading the WSG, but only barely. I saw the community D&D episode. I liked it. My eldest daughter and I had a philosophical discussion about D&D that ended with her saying that, essentially, D&D is just a template and you can bolt on whatever flavor you want for a campaign. I said "exactly", which was probably not the reaction she was expecting. I still can't figure out why more realistic high medieval settings elude D&D players. I guess there is something in the medieval attitude that is just alien to modern thought, I suspect it is the emphasis on religion.
