🎲 Dungeons & Dragons: getting reacquainted

I've been playing Dungeons & Dragons for around 20 years now, primarily with a small group of friends that were into the entire role-playing thing to start with. In 2018 I am now a player in one campaign and a Dungeon Master (DM) for three. This feels slightly over-the-top compared to the ...
