It seems the old military adage also proves true in day-to-day life, especially where blogging is concerned.
As it applies to today's post, it means that my planned series of posts regarding our game group's foray into the Caves of Chaos is about to take a slight shift in direction: Instead of covering the group's activities (with myself as a player) I'm going to be covering my family's activities in the same setting (with myself as DM). This is because I have good reason to believe that the group's exploration of the Caves will not extend beyond our first session, for a multitude of reasons.
It appears that the rest of the monsters infesting the ravine east of the Keep will fare far better than their kobold neighbors did, as Griswold (my fighter PC) and company decide to retire from the adventuring life and take up pursuits less hazardous to life and limb.
Of course, as so frequently happens, one group of adventurers departs the Keep, only to be replaced by another. In this instance, shortly after the departure of Griswold and company, another trio arrives: Murloc, a fighter (my youngest son's PC); Alaris Silverblade, an elf (my eldest son's PC); and Fiona Silverwind, another elf and cousin to Alaris Silverblade (my fiancee's PC).
Full of youthful exuberance, but steadied by a voice of maturity, the trio is set to make its mark on the Keep and its environs.
