Calling All Geeks

6 11 2009

I mentioned a while back that I had an interest in playing D&D.  I had kind of given up on the idea since I don’t know anyone around here who plays or might be interested in playing.  Then I read this yesterday from Gabe over at Penny Arcade and thought that sounded like a perfect solution; play by email!  I haven’t thought through all the details and logistics yet, I thought I’d see if there was any interest first.  I’ve never played D&D before so I thought it might be fun to get a group of people together who haven’t played before or maybe haven’t played 4th edition, though I won’t turn anyone away 🙂

So, how about it?  Who wants to put their RP hat on and go have an adventure?  If you’re interested send me an email at pvillegirlblog [at] gmail [dot] com!


My Internal Geek

16 10 2009

So, I read Wil Wheaton’s blog… there, I said it.  The only reason I started watching Leverage and The Big Bang Theory is because I found out he was going to have guess appearances on those shows.  I’m a geek at heart…  His most recent post deals with the death of his D&D character.  After I finished reading it my internal geek poped her head up from behind some book somewhere and said “I wanna play D&D” and then /whimpered in my head.

Just thought I’d share.  I almost Tweeted this but then I remembered my Twitter updates my Facebook…  Those are 2 very different groups of people!  I think my “internet” friends are less likley to mock my internal geek 🙂


I left the names in this time.  If the dialogue wasn’t enough the names should give it away for any geeks in the audience 🙂

Leonard: I may throw up on ya.
Jim: I think these things are pretty safe.
Leonard: Don’t pander to me, kid. One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in thirteen seconds. Solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. And wait till you’re sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles, see if you’re so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding. Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence.
Jim: Well, I hate to break this to you, but Starfleet operates in space.
Leonard: Yeah. Well, I got nowhere else to go, the ex-wife took the whole damn planet in the divorce. All I got left is my bones.
