Day 7: What was your most impactful RPG session?

My most impactful rpg session, without a doubt, occurred during a one on one game with my son, Connor.

The year was 2013. The game was Dungeons & Dragons: 2nd Edition. I was the DM. Connor was Valeros, a human fighter.

Why was this so impactful? Because it sparked a love for the game in my son that nearly rivals my own. He has grown to become a terrific roleplayer and a brilliant dungeon master.

In addition to saddling up with us oldtimers on a weekly basis, he also runs his own games for a group of great kids.

And to think, it all started with a human fighter befriending an ogre named Thun (“Thun rhymes with fun!”) and the sneaky little goblin murder/thief Soggybottom.

He took to the game right away, became invested in the story, his character, and, more importantly, made a real connection with his NPC compatriots.

He was heartbroken when Thun died in battle and overjoyed when he was resurrected by powerful magics later.

Yeah, that first session created a monster… and I couldn’t be happier.
