D&D and Game design

Posted by ezekiel2021 (23 posts) -

So lately I have been playing alot of D&D and reading a lot of 4e Material in preparation for setting up a campaign for friends and I never realized how much I needed this in my life especially since the inclusion of earning my Game design degree.  For years I never touched D&D for reasons that vary, if you want the full detail just ask but not enough time for this blog.  Anyway and when I am almost halfway through my schooling I pick up the game.  Where the heck did I have my head for the past 15 years to not ever have played this game and let it help me develop my skill for game design more?  I mean from telling a compelling story to setting up mechanics that a player can follow and easily understand, there is a trove of stuff to learn from here.  If you ever need to learn how to develop a story then you need to just go ahead and pick up a manual, yeah they are pricey, but man they are worth it, CHeers!
