Dads & Sons D&D

In addition to running my (very occasional) Dads and Daughters D&D group, I also participate as a player in a campaign with a local friend. Our sons are the same age (12) and we play about once a month or so. My friend is the DM and is running us through the Princes of the Apocalypse campaign. He had us each create two characters so we have a party of 6, even though there are only 3 players. It gets a little schizophrenic, but we're having fun. I think the boys especially have enjoyed learning and playing the game. Right now they mostly like to "roll play", but I'm working on getting them to do a little more "role play", if you know what I mean.
My youngest, Liam, joined us for a while. He is 3 and wanted to "roll dice".
My middle son, Ayden, is always very patient with his little brother.
Bill, the DM.
He keeps all the characters on a spreadsheet on his computer. This makes it much easier for the boys.
Guy is a genius.
Still loving my game room.
Calvin plotting the destruction of our enemies...
or wondering about opening the second bag of Chili Cheese Fritos.
I'm not sure which.
Liam enjoying the dry erase markers.
These two boys are amazing together.
Aftermath of a battle vs some Earth Cultists and their pet Ankhegs.
We crushed them.
I'm grateful to be able to do as much gaming, painting, modeling, and blogging as I've done lately. Mostly it has simply taken me deciding to do it and not waiting for that ever elusive moment when "I have the time." You gotta do what you love. Life's too short to put it off.

Anyway, that's it for this week. Until next time, carry on!
