Favorite Player Character Race

Spoiler alert, its human. But why? It’s because I’m a human and in my experience we can be rather great sometimes.

For me playing a human comes easiest. I don’t know what it feels like to be a Dragonborn, a Tiefling or Dwarf. But with humans I at least have part of an idea how they are supposed to feel and live.

An other reason is that there are less prejudices with humans. Dwarfs need to be sturdy and drink beer. Elves are fancy and sophisticated. Humans are just everything, we have the potential to be the worst or the best and that is why I love to play them!

Cheers!

The D&D 30 Day Challenge: Day 1

Day 1 of the D&D challenge. How I started the hobby.

I have decided that during September I’ll be doing the D&D 30 day challenge. These will be small post about me and the game, enjoy.

How you got started

Watching the game

On January 28 a YouTube channel called Node uploaded a video. D&D 5th Ed – Call of the Wild Ep.1 – Beast Within. In Belgium D&D doesn’t have a big following but I’ve heard of it via tv-shows. So the episode peeked my interest and I started watching my first RPG game.

I was hooked! Immediately after I wanted more. I searched on Youtube and eventually I found Rollplay. They had more then 100 episodes of playing D&D and for a few months that was all the D&D I got.

Finally playing

After a few months of watching (and sometimes binging) I decided it was to to finally play the game myself. I went to reddit/r/lfg and made a post requesting a game. I did’t take long until I found someone who would be my DM. A guy from the Netherlands who wanted to run a 1 on 1 campaign. Happy I could play I agreed to it.

I had a fun session but two days later he messaged me saying he didn’t want to be a dungeon master anymore and that I should do it.

The next week we started playing Hoard of the Dragon Queen with me as the DM. Since that moment I haven’t stopped DM’ing. That campaign only lasted a few sessions since the guy who made me run the game was a rather toxic player and I had to look for a new group.

But that’s the small story of how I started D&D (and DM’ing)
