New campaign, new to Obsidian portal not new to RPGs :)

Hello all

I was an enthusiastic RPG guy in the 1980s - AD&D, Call of Cthulhu, Top Secret, Judge Dredd... mainly DM'ing/GM'ing. Until recently, I'd rarely spent much time remembering those long-ago pleasures. That all changed a few months ago when I was watching an episode the of cartoon Regular Show with my 9-year old son. The plot concerned Mordecai and Rigby playing a game clearly based on D&D. My son, mystified, asked me to explain what was going on. So I told him about D&D and remembered that all my old AD&D 1E books, modules etc. were boxed up in my dad's loft. So my son set about pestering me to get the books out and teach him how to play the game. So I did... and the campaign that I'm now organising on Obsidian Portal is the result. I'm happy enough playing with my son and my (very patient) wife, but I wouldn't mind connecting with any fellow UK-based D&D enthusiasts, maybe.

Thanks!

    Hi ThuriaDM

    Welcome to Obsidian Portal and indeed, back into Roleplaying. I'm sure you will find this site a useful tool in setting up details of your campaign to aid you as you progress. I am currently running a game for my two nephews aged 8 and 12 and would be happy to exchange observations and ideas.
