When they made this particular hero, they didn't give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn't give him a tank or a warship or an X-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn't give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray. They gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that's an extraordinary thing. There will never come a time that we don't need a hero like the Doctor.

I also just added Paranoia and Dead of Winter to my list for him

As games, or just brainstorming themes for 2021?

GS: If you had to choose between kicking evil in the head or the behind, which would you choose, and why? Minsc: I'm not sure I understand the question. I have two feet, do I not? You do not take a small plate when the feast of evil welcomes seconds.

So my son is asking me to run D&D for him again. I'm already running a homebrew Campaign for my friends (started in-person, moved to Roll20 because of the pandemic and now possibly moving to Foundry because Roll20 is annoying me) so I haven't really had time to put anything together.

I'm thinking about possibly starting an online game with him and his cousins and running Sunless Citadel into Forge of Fury into Red Hand of Doom (the last would require converting to 5E, but it looks like a lot of people have done it and posted their work online.) I haven't run any of them before, but from what I've read it's easy enough to tweak them to chain them together fairly smoothly.

My other thought would be Temple of Elemental Evil, which I've also never run, but I played through the video game about a million times and helped out with some modding on it, so I'm pretty familiar with the overall plot.

Kalshane, those are all good choices! Red Hand of Doom is one of the best campaigns ever.

Ryan and I are still happy to do so, but I don't know where things stand with the other players

I'm good, but Hec may be taking some time off. Someone in Natter said they'd checked with him recently.

Hey. New board.

Gud hasn't posted in a long time. I'm a little worried. I emailed him.

Right, Hec. I know my Davids apart, I swear.
