Well, summer's here, school's out, and many GMs and Players are traveling. Never before have I had trouble filling tables at our store... and yet D&D Encounters is the exception - I've had to ask for more kits and beg for more GMs to fill the need! Now that's exciting.
This last session of Encounters, I had to run 2 tables. The last one finishes tonight, and I'm glad. Don't get me wrong - I've loved all three of my groups and had a great time doing it, but 3 tables each week is too much for anyone - especially the mother of a 3 year old child who's afraid of the giants & dragons who will eat her if she sleeps in her room alone. ("Sweetling, they're too big - they'll never fit in our house!")
I've had a great time with groups "respectfully looting the body" and complaining because, "You're the Cleric - You're supposed to heal me BEFORE you run away!", but I'm tired and glad to be down to my one Saturday group with the generally invisible wizard and the eager meat-shield/Dragonborn Kazu.
I hope to make more session reports, but first I'm going to take a nap.
