Bureau of Underground Land Management or something like that…..

 

My kids are now 12 and almost 10 and old enough to read the complex rules of D & D. Since it was Spring Break they spent some time creating their first characters and today was the “introduction session” I’ve personally been gaming for a few years but do NOT consider myself an expert gamer at all. In fact I’m a very shy gamer normally…. I can’t be shy in this game thus my character is a bureaucrat of the “Underground Land Management Office” and in charge of the miscreants that have to keep me alive so they get their freedom back.

First roll of the game by elder kid

<insert sound of a D20 rolling>

“so what did you get?”

“UMMMMMMM a 1”

“critical fumble you see nothing!”

It was a spot check.

Next roll….. younger kid <insert sound of D20 rolling>

“well, what is it?”

“A 1!”

“really? eeek”

another spot check.

I think my character is in trouble!

I’m a geek

I’m a Geek! I love that I’m geeky and can solve a number of computer based issues for my co-workers and family. I love teaching my kids geeky things. Right now my daughter who loves to draw is learning the art of playing with GIMP and how much fun geeky art can be. I fully believe that it is important to be a geek of something. I am not just a computer geek however, I am a geek in sewing, in pattern drafting, especially for dolls and miniatures. I love photography but I am more a nerd there as I don’t like to share much of what I shoot only the really good stuff. I am a file geek too. As a clerk I work with computer files and paper files. I like to think I’m good at it as well. If you’re going to geek out on something it might as well be something you enjoy! What are you a geek of?
