Gaming in the empty nest

Recently, it became me, my wife, and three cats in the household. No demands on our time beyond our own pursuits and responsibilities. For want of a reliable local gaming group (for now), I decided to propose a solo campaign to my wife. She took the bait.

In my campaign world, there is now a brand-new female elf orphan adopted by a minor noble and raised to succeed the position after proving herself as an individual of uncommon valor and worth through a career of heroic adventuring. It is very Blackmoor-ish and I couldn't be prouder.

---We'll discuss my hopeless Blackmoor fetish another time---

In the meantime, I'd like to dedicate some of this blog to sharing the development and progress of this little experiment, where I will be creating an NPC to accompany and assist our burgeoning heroine - and to give myself a presence in the campaign where I can help my semi-novice wife out during the course of the game.

Stay tuned for irregular updates and progress notes. My wife wants some mystery and she wants some wilderness and dungeon adventure. I think I've got her covered on all counts. And...I think I shall run a stealthy halfling trapdodger and burglar. Oh yeah.
