Curse of Strahd – Episode 1 (Technically 2)

So, this is actually the second episode. We’d already played a week before after setting up our characters.

I feel a little weird about it, though: beyond my usual social anxiety, at any rate. See, one of the characters I’d kicked around before that first session was a Bard thematically styled after the witches, particularly Granny Weatherwax, from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. But we also needed a Rogue, so I decided to toss one together. But I didn’t want to just play an archetypal Rogue and, with Discworld on the brain, I settled on cynical Watchman Samuel Vimes as a base point. And it was all downhill from there, because I didn’t have a name so I temporarily (sic) named him Sam Vimes and I didn’t have a personality so I just made him act like Sam Vimes, so now I’ve committed to role-playing somebody else’s character and I feel a little weird about that.

We have been remarkably lucky, except for that one time a door critically-one-shot our heavily-armored Fighter/Paladin.
