Default Dungeons and Dragons

Not so popular since the MMO's
My buds and I have been playing together since 1992.
This last weekend we finished off a major adventure.
Perhaps concluding 20 years of game.
here's some pics.

I always liked the old "real life" D&D. It had a social element totally lacking in digital multi-player games, to say nothing of actually fostering soem imagination and creativity. :)

I can remember way way back in the 1970s hearing about people that would play games like this and disappear for long periods of time and I could never figure out why they would get so involved, that was until the PC came out like the old comodor64 with games that were text based. I know that myself would probably become addicted to a game like that.
That was a long adventure you and our friends played.

Props to your DM on the effort (clearly visible in the pics) he puts in to developing your sessions. If he is half as good at story telling and plot development as he is at creating areas/battlegrounds/maps I am one highly jealous npc ;)

Quickly, someone video gaming studio should hire your GM. Would probably make for an amazing game.

I haven't played D&D in probably about 10 years, it was a lot of fun, probably why I got into MMOs later on...

Is THAC0 still a thing, or is that long gone now?

Sorry, all my knowledge of DND comes from thoroughly reading Baldur's Gate manuals.
