Lots has been happening lately. Between writing, family, and working on the remodel to get it ready for the move, my free time has been eaten up. So I thought, why not add another major time suck?

And I did! I’m now playing Dungeons and Dragons for the first time since high school. It’s a twisted path that got me back into this awesome RPG.

I’m a huge fan of the show Community, have been for years, and I love Rick and Morty. After the second or third time watching both of these, I realized they shared a creator, Dan Harmon.

I fell deep down the Harmon hole, watching interviews, a documentary, and a half ton of YouTube videos. Somewhere in this deep dive, I discovered another show he produces called HarmonQuest.

He and some friends, Jeff Bryan Davis, Erin McGathy, and their DM Spencer Crittenden, and a guest star all play DnD in front of a live audience and their adventure is then animated. Trust me, it’s hilarious.

After watching two seasons of this, I went out, bought all the books, watched some DnD videos, and discovered an entire sub culture of DnD Celebrities. All that was left was to invite a few friends to play DnD, and now I’m officially a dungeon master! Not an especially good one yet — there are a LOT of rules — but I can hold my own once I’ve thrown back a few beers.

That’s the latest in my life. Ok, time to put my head down and hammer out more pages in this novel. See ya!
