I was cleaning my DM files (some folders I keep with info on adventures I've ran through the years) and came upon something I thought I lost: the character record sheet for my very first 4th ed. character... A dwarf fighter.
His name's Theoderik (I know...). If you check his profile, you'll see the revamped version. He was originally a normal dwarf guardian fighter created back in 2009. He was meant for a campaign a friend of mine was supposed to DM, but the other player's reaction wasn't positive because the story meant for us to become evil and I seemed to be the only player to be ok with that...

In order to provide some variety to the themes of this blog (I don't want it to be only about Kemet's exploits), I thought it could be interesting and fun to talk a little about my experience and difficulties DMing in a country where access to RPGs is not easy. With "a country" I mean "Mexico", where I live.
First off, finding D&D books.
When I resumed DMing (I started playing D&D in 3.5, but my second DM was terrible and I stopped playing until 4th ed.) I knew I needed some rulebooks, but here in Mexico the tabletop RPG world is as tiny as the individual member of a swarm. According to WotC store locator, Mexico holds seven D&D (core) stores. Hmm... Well, I'll speak about my particular case.
If you happen to live in the administrative capital of the country (we're supposed to live in...
