Episode 2 of our D&D podcast is now live on iTunes and over on the official site. Since we recorded these podcasts I’ve had the opportunity to not only sit in on a few different games but actually run my own game. One thing I’ve noticed is just how different D&D is depending on the group and the DM. From hardcore min/maxing motherfuckers, to groups where it seems like the rules get in the way of their acting. What I enjoy about the game is really the table talk. That is to say I like having my friends around the table,cracking jokes and telling stories. My feeling is that the core D&D rules are there for you to use as much or as little as you like. In my game I try really hard to strike a balance between what the rules dictate and what’s going to be the most fun.
