The Return of the Red Box

Why did nobody tell me? Actually, it’s nobody’s fault but mine… and perhaps I was simply too distracted with running a Chronica Feudalis game to pay much mind to what was going on in the world of D&D, but this is just too awesome to not report, even if it’s old news for most! What am I blabbering on about? The return of the introductory “Red Box” D&D set. Not the actual return, mind you, but an introductory set for D&D 4e styled to look just like said box. While some may call it blasphemy, I think it’s very cool and smart marketing. This is the box that myself and many others got started with, and those with kids will feel fond memories seeing the updated box, thereby buying it to introduce their children to the game as they were in the past.

Has been the Dungeon Master for the group since the early nineties. It all started when a school friend’s mother ran U1: The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh for him and some friends. Enthralled by this new thing he'd discovered, he quickly assembled a group of his own and began running games. From that point forward, he was hooked and hasn’t looked back since. He’s run games that run the gamut from old school to indie, and is always looking to try new systems or tinker with existing ones.
