Warning: The following post gives away my geekishness, and my age.

I remember spending a not-insignificant portion of my youth planning and playing roleplaying games. The real, pencil & paper type, with funny shaped dice and everything. We played everything from ShadowRun to StarWars, but our favourite was surely Dungeons & Dragons. The games would take days to plan and prepare, and even longer to play, and as such, involved a necessarily huge amount of coffee and junk food. We’d gather round in someone’s lounge or bedroom, fighting to get an actual chair to sit on, otherwise propping ourselves up against a wall with a mangy cushion (if we were too slow), and then letting our imaginations, and that of the DM, dictate our entertainment for the next few hours. 

I came across a great set of posts by Will Wheaton, who is currently leading a D&D game at home for his teenage son and friends. For those of you who know that unique, and uber-geeky joy of roleplaying, you might enjoy browsing through them, as he describes in quite good detail how they progress…..
