Excellent series if you've never played it.

Yeah3

I have all 3... Damn. I am going to have to pull all that stuff out of the attic and dork out with it for a few weeks...

The old DND figures are worth some coin now.

In particular Grenadier models and Ral Partha stuff sculpted by Tom Meier. Lord Soth's Charge is worth several hundred bucks.

There is an even older company and I have about 20 of them... Forget the name but I think they were the first series. They aren't as precise but they are just oozing coolness. Most of my collection is Ral Partha and Grenadier... I used whatever I could find to add too, "Giant" at 1/35th scale ...plastic animals. I have a small army of undead... lol.

Several Giants and demons like Orca and the Efreeti etc. I KNOW those are worth bucks... A red and Black dragon... an Undead dragon ... tons of what I thought were the coolest. I even have some Star Frontiers and Traveller sci fi figures too... Powered assault armor bro...

I actually had a second Huge tacklebox full stolen when I was in Portland in 88'... I don't even like to think of that. So many in that box. A bunch of really cool old ones too.

I have 2 Beholders and a Mind Flayer too...

That's awesome, I lost all my books and mods.

However, I did recently purchase the redone, core rulebook for Traveler

Cool!

I played online D&D for 2-3 years, then I played guild wars 2 for another 2-3 years but video games can't compete with traditional role play, pen and paper games because they force you to use your imagination.

If I ever get good enough at python, I want to design an online game old school style, with just enough graphics to get the job done but most of the game will happen in your head.

" A group playing "Dungeons & Dragons" in a Niagara Falls house Tuesday night was robbed by a trio of assailants, including one carrying a shotgun and another holding a machete-style knife "

Did no one have a protection from evil spell?

What about the magic missiles?

That's the go to for everyone...even if you're a noob.

Keep on the Borderlands set me free...

I knew we had some common ground...

"Queen of the Demonweb Pits"

"Vault of the Drow"

"Expedition to the Barrier Peaks"

I still have an impressive collection of Battle mats, modules, books, the dice etc... And over 6oo miniatures! Including some of the first runs of Grenadier and Ral Partha.

I can go full DORK.

Haven't played in 30 years!

I can still DM with the best but, I prefer being a player.  Troll2

Yeah I remember a little shop in town that sold the pewter miniatures.

Like 1982.

Then I saw this chick walking by the store...

I spent way too much money on the dragons (and the other miniatures) and the paints for them, but it was the crafty girl in me and we actually used the miniatures on our battle map while we gamed.

I used to spend hours painting them and bonding them. The damn wings NEVER stayed on the dragons. They were just too heavy. The WORST was Tiamat. NO WAY those heavy head were staying put on top of the body.

Those dragons and miniatures suffered a lot of moves over the years and they finally all perished. In my last move I finally parted with my battle maps, compendiums, modules, and handbooks...I kept them with me from my teenage years until a couple years ago. I was the only girl who regularly gamed in our group...the others would come and go based on boyfriend status LoL. Boys didn't take care of things very well, but us girls do, which is why I ended up with al of the D&D stuff...lugging it around with me for decades until I gave up the ghost...so to speak.

The only thing I haven't parted with from my D&D (which was aD&D in the 90's) is my dice collection...they're just too pretty. I sure do miss those days and I would, if I could, find a wizard and move to the Forgotten Realms.

I prefered to play but usually ended up as DM , last game we had was a campaign 90% original with a few bits from White Dwarf and Imagine mags thrown in , the whole " game " ran for 3 &1/2 years with us " nerds " playing one session a week.

Good times.

The power of the imagination , something which seems to be dissappearing over time , just look at all the covers bands.

Playing role playing games e.g AD&D , Tunnels and Trolls , Warhammer , Runequest , Traveller , D&D , MERP etc taught me so much about maths , lateral thinking , cooperation , laughing at your own mistakes etc.

A great work out for the mind , in fact if you had roleplaying games for the mind and cycling for the body , I do not think you could go wrong.
