Well, it didn't go quite the way I'd hoped but we finally got the new campaign started. And by "we", I mean Matt and myself, because we were the only one's who showed.
Well, Justin was there, but he was playing Star Frontiers with his group. Matt and i considered scrapping the D&D and play Star Frontiers instead, but we opted to get the campaign rolling.
It went well. It was Matt's introduction to 4th Edition D&D so we spent some time going over what was different. Since he hadn't played since 2nd Ed, it was quite a bit.
I think he really liked the new combat and it's emphasis on tactics. We made it through two combats and some roleplaying.
My home-made power cards worked well. Matt liked spreading them out in front of him so he could consider his options. Because I kept encounter and daily cards as he used them, he didn't waste time looking at options he no longer had.
I think he felt a bit overwhelmed trying to juggle four characters at once and hopes we get some new players soon. Me too.
We played a little Magic before and after also.
We plan to play again next Saturday. I'll let you know how that goes as well.
Here's some pics from today's session.
