I've been playing D&D for years and tonight I'm going to stream the first session I've run in a long time, and I'm making some setting appropriate drinks for my players.
Tonight I'm running D&D for the first time in a long time and I'm very excited. A lot of game groups enjoy having something to drink at the table and here I'm making a couple of setting appropriate drinks, one with and one without alcohol. The Tavern Punch draws on punch and tavern traditions of yore, while the Kobold Kooler is a nonalcoholic riff on a silver fizz.
I love Dungeons and Dragons, and TTRPGs in general, I've played quite a few: Vampire: The Masquerade, Wraith: The Oblivion, Demon: The Fallen, Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Mage: The Ascension (Mage: The Awakening was also surprisingly good), as well as FATE, WH40KRPG, etc. etc. Mostly though, we played D&D. My first experience with D&D actually happened before I even knew what it was, I got a box of DragonStrike, TSR's answer to Games Workshop's Hero Quest (basically a board game encapsulation of Dungeons and Dragons) and I loved it. But I never played it much beyond its introductory board-game level of play. Later on, in my freshman year of Highschool my friend Mike would introduce me to AD&D 2nd Edition and I was instantly hooked. It was pretty much all I wanted to do.
And now I am again! Tonight at 8:00pm Eastern Time I'll be live streaming D&D at twitch.tv/GregFromHTD
