Last weeks Dragon Age session went great. We had two players, though there will be three tonight. Last week the guy playing the fighter made his character in about 5 minutes and after the session he was really pleased with how effective his warrior was at being the tank. Right out of the box he had meaningful damage reduction and a good knock back effect.

It was a short session so we had 1 fight, an ambush on the way to the Keep. The combat was fast and interesting. The only thing that slowed it down was the lack of copies of the stunts for each player to see. I’ve got photocopies of the stunt chart so that should go faster this time.

The session ended with the party arranging with the Keeps Priest to go into the Caves of Caos to help him find a religious artifact that was stolen. I’m adding house rules to make a Priest class. It loses arcane lance, and gains a Lay on Hands type ability and the ability to vast in armor, along with some bludgeoning weapon proficiences. The other characters are a Thief and a Mage, so we’ve got the 4 basics covered. I’m really excited about running this old school adventure using the Dragon Age rules because they have an old school feel to them without having to mess with Basic D&D.
