The last session (session 9) was canceled due to a lack of players. I want 4 players minimum to play the campaign, and we only had 3. However, a total of 5 of us showed up to play something anyway. :) We ended up playing a few games of Descent Journeys in the Dark, which is a fun hack and slash board game, and a good break from role playing. The Valnwall game is reset for later this month.
On other fronts, I am now playing in a D&D 3.5 face to face game every other week. Its been a while, since I have been DMing Labyrinth Lord for almost a year now, and going back to 3.5 rules is sort of a shock to the system. I hope I can just go with it, but I find the constant skill checks annoying, and character management as well. The story and background and the DM are all fantastic however. This makes up for a lot. :)
I have also started playing in a AD&D\LL AEC game over skype with Scalydeamon, Father Brian, and some other fun guys. This is the first time I have tried playing over skype, and I have to say it is going better than I thought. I was worried about it feeling a lot different than a face to face game. It does feel a bit different, but it still feels like good ole D&D most of the time! Sometimes I get WoW flash backs like I am talking on Teamspeak or Vent, but those are few and far between. Now if I can just get my Druid to survive to 2nd or 3rd level...
