I haven’t been playing a lot of games lately. I was Dungeon & Dragonning for awhile, but with my priority list the way it is, that managed to slip off my radar. I’ve been missing it – missing something – but there are a handful of other things that are just too important to me to replace.

So last night, Marty was testing a new game on me. It’s a game he’s putting together in d20 format to play with a few of our friends, but I knew my brain wasn’t up to d20 tonight. So he started talking it out to me.

I don’t want to give it away by typing out details. But do you know, it was like one of the old text-based games – Hitchhiker’s Guide, or even Dragonrealms. Dragonrealms still uses that format, and it’s a perfectly good format. The only problem with those games, really, is that the computer will only accept certain phrases as actions, so unless you know the set really well, you have to cast about for them every time you want to do something. And furthermore, this wasn’t just a pre-planned scenario – he was tweaking it as he went along, depending on what I decided to do.

It was like playing chess. It was incredible.

We got through one obstacle and, rather pleased with myself, I wanted to keep going – but at that point it was already pushing 1:00am and my thought process was getting fuzzy. Then he gave me a hint, and that was it – no hints. I don’t want to play if you have to give me hints. Screw that! :P

But I have to do this again. It’s too unbelievably fun and interesting to forget about. It takes everything I adore about D&D and condenses it into one game, without the math, without the rules. It’s just the story, and two people trying to trip each other up! Excellent!

Besides which, he’s very good at it. So nifty.
