It's not sad to be excited to reach 2nd level. The world is a dangerous place and adventure is the most dangerous occupation a PC can have. You should feel accomplished when you reach a new level, even if it is "just" 2nd level.Lurker wrote:Just did the math ...... only 301 exp till 2nd level !!!! Wooooo hoooooo
Is it sad that I'm excited to make 2nd level ....
I hate to admit it, but when that second group of gnolls attacked, and I only had 4 HP and all the spell slingers were tapped out, I figured we were dead meat !
Then, Barlieg made the lucky toss onto the bed .... woosh roast gnoll!
Plus, I couldn't resist the role playing opportunity when the dwarf started to use the brandy to soak the barricade the 2nd night ... the horror of the thought of that. Wasting good brandy just to potentially save our lives
And I'm glad everyone is having fun with the game. That's one of my biggest concerns when I run a game is that everyone is having fun, feels challenged, and gets to roleplay a bit. Sometimes I feel like it is playing out like a video game. Probably why I'm not a big fan of straight up dungeon crawls. They feel artificial to me. I like to have a good mix of dungeon, with town stuff, with wilderness stuff, etc. That way, the players feel like they are getting a good gaming experience.
