My first (and only) session of AD&D 1e at the Legendary Realms Game Store was 3 weeks ago. It was a blast and my dwarven cleric, Calishun, survived the day and still hope to make 5th level.
We had a very full table, so I learned the following lessons:
1 - Getting a seat early can keep you from accessing the bathroom easily. I would have had to have disturbed about a half dozen of the dozen at our table. Yes, we had that large a group and it was fun. Ensure empty bladder prior to game time ;)
2 - Dice rolling off the table is not fun. I don't want to lose dice. Therefore I now have this snazzy dice rolling tray.
3 - Cool dice. I'm breaking out my cool dice. With this tray they shouldn't damage the table. They should also avoid the floor - see number 2
4 - My own mini. Part of the Reaper Bones 2 collection. Cant see much detail in the light, but it's a dwarven cleric. Woot!
