My one and only com­plaint about gam­ing with Sam is that I nev­er, ever get enough. He’s just so good, and the sto­ries are so fas­ci­nat­ing, that I always want more! I’m just greedy, I guess.

Yep, I flubbed my sav­ing throw against being a geek.

A fum­bled that sav­ing throw, myself.

Is it real­ly greed, though, to want more of some­thing so good?

Sav­ing throws… Man that brings up mem­o­ries of long ago. High school to be exact. I miss play­ing D&D with my bud­dies. Those were some of the best moments in an oth­er­wise hor­ri­ble high school expe­ri­ence.

Do you still play? I didn’t start gam­ing until I was in my 30s, after meet­ing my part­ner.

No I don’t play them any­more. It’s not for lack of desire, mind you. Just nobody I know is into that stuff now. I used to play D&D, Star Wars, and a Twi­light 2000/​Marvel hybrid. I was good at fig­ur­ing my way around vicious game mas­ter plots.

My moth­er was one of those “Chris­tians” that thought D&D was evil! 😉

Ah — yeah, my par­ents would have been the same. There are still peo­ple into gam­ing. Sto­ry Games are the big thing now.

Sounds like fun. Do you play over inter­net or some­thing?

We most­ly play in per­son. We did some online RPing for the After Seren­i­ty pod­cast, which was fun, and Sam has exper­i­ment­ed with it in Sec­ond Life, but I pre­fer the real-time social inter­ac­tion.

Yeah I always liked that bet­ter too. You have a lot more cre­ative games that way, and some good laughs as well! 🙂
