I’m resuming my “serious” campaign today. I’m excited. It’s been a month now (we paused for my wife to recover from having a baby(!)), and we’ve only “skipped” two sessions (since we go every other week or so), and we played our regular (weekly) Sunday night Sliders game for two weeks now, but it still feels like forever.
I’m excited. I’m excited to get back into the world. I’m excited to see what my players do in my world. We wrapped up their first dungeon in my world rather nicely just before the baby came, so there aren’t any loose end that will take getting used to hindering re-integration. A fresh start, the players with shiny new levels (in most cases), and flush with new-won gold. Ready to set off again towards their goal.
I didn’t even do a whole lot to gear back up, just checked the weather and refamiliarized myself with the terrain and current events. But it’s been a while since I’ve really been inside the workings of my world, and I realized I miss it. So I’m excited to get back in. Just a taste is enough to get me hungry, apparently.
