Author's Playing D&D

For the past few Januarys I've been returning to my home stomping grounds of Detroit Michigan for ConFusion.  This past January, I was invited by Peter Brett to join in his annual Dungeons and Dragons game. I've played D&D in the past....way in the past.  In fact, it was over 30 years ago that my friends and my future wife used to get together on Saturday nights to play until dawn.

Peter arranged for the game to be recorded, and has edited and made it available. Here is the full video:

The video has introductions, although I noticed that don't mention their books/projects so let me provide a little more details:

  • Peter V. Brett - bestselling author of The Demon Cycle which includes: The Warded Man, The Desert Spear and The Daylight War
  • Howard Tayler - is both a writer and an artist. His best known work is his space opera comic called Schlock Mercenary.

  • Rich Morris is also a comic artist who does Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic (YAFGC)
  • Kelley Armstrong is a #1 New York Times Author of so many novels I couldn't possibly hope to list them all. Some of her series include: OtherWorld, Cainsville, Age of Legends, The Blackwell Pages, Darkest Powers & Darkest Rising, Nadia Stafford and a whole host of short fiction.

  3. I'm puzzled with lots of exercises. I was afraid I could not do the right time despite my hard work. I need a support person.

  4. Five times each year, the corporate offices close and the employees spend a full day working at a https://prowritingpartner.com/essayshark-com-review/
    restaurant to stay connected to the everyday business. With this, the company also doesn’t believe in having one large central headquarters with the co-CEO’s residing on both coasts. This allows the company to watch the market across the country and grow.
