Call me excited! I am finally buying the things I need to write my fantasy fiction novel based on my character from the game EverQuest. I’m going to be using the Dungeons & Dragons style of gameplay to write most of the book. The reason is because I have a somewhat okay imagination, but it’s not that good that I can just start saying “this guy did this with his blade” and “that guy did that with his staff” and “this enchanter cast this spell on the orc.” I played EverQuest for many years, but I never really paid too much attention to the mechanics of the game. I kept all the battle spam out of the guild/group chat window.
My partner actually bought me this tile set at Barnes & Noble today. I actually read the description on the back wrong. I thought it said it included the D&D starter set, the Dungeon Master’s kit, Miniatures and tile sets, but it just has the Wilderness tile set. Last week I bought these dice from someone on Etsy, it includes a bracelet lol. I just want the dice, but I can give the bracelet away. The dice just shipped today and they said it should be here by next Monday. UGH! Well, I’ve waited all these years to get started, I can wait another week.
I decided that I wanted to buy some other things that are also important when playing, or learning to play Dungeons and Dragons, such as the starter kit and some miniatures, which are what I thought came with the Wilderness tiles. The starter kit will come with its own pair of dice, but I figured they would probably be plain white or something, so I don’t regret buying the extra dice from Etsy. I also bought 3 sets of miniatures. Fantasy Figures, Army Builder and Skeleton Warriors. I figure the army builder one will be the characters in my story, the fantasy figures will be the bad guys which I will place in random spots on the tiles, and same with the skeleton warriors.
I didn’t realize it at first, but the army builder characters are lego characters heh. That’s fine, they don’t have to all be the same exact thing, as long as they fit on the wilderness tiles and don’t fall down, it’ll be fine. Now all I need is a good story that won’t bore anyone to death.
