I am not sure, but I still suspect this is a trial.

Certinally n_n .

Ok, so I was watch a youtube Video the other day on how to introduce new players to DnD. One of the things the guy recomended doing was running a quick One Shot to introduce new players to the Mechanics of the game, exploration, Interaction, Roleplaying and Combat. And I realized there was the perfect opertunity to do just that in the Mines of Phandelver adventuer module that came with the starter set. In it, it has you already haveing met your quest giver in Water Deep(?) and him giveing you your quest while he and an Escourt start out ahead of you, so then your adventuer starts with a Gob.in Amubush on the Road. What if you change it up though? What if you start out with the party encountering the quest giver in a Tavern in Water Deep? From there, you can have opertunities to explore, interact with NPC's, make a skill check or two, and it all cumilates in a Tavern Brawl, either with the quest giver or a local gang of thugs, depending on how you play.

Sounds very good!
By the way, it has been a tiring week, so I am very pleased about the fact that weekend is here  :)

Thanks Dina n_n . Just wish I'd thought of it sooner -_- .

And I'd be a lot more psyched the weekends here if I A.) Didn't have to spend 5 hours and $50 tomorrow to take a Pre Licesing course, and B.) Have to work on Sunday. But I get Monday and Tuesday and I'll hopfully get to put my idea to the test on Monday, so we'll see n_n .

Congratulations, Otlan!

It is a very cold day. I am hoping the building where I work is warm

Just checking in and catching up. Soon to hit Level 32 on Pokemon. Averaging about 60km a week on walking. My wife says I am fixated. Hope all is well.

60 km! That is a lot! And I am level 33 and play since 2017  :o
Also, apparenty to exchange Pokemon the players need to be physically close to each other, so my idea of sending you a South-American-only pokémon won't work. I am sad about that.
Also, 5 of my Pokemon are out of order as I have no way to relive them. So I am not doing a lot of fights with the Rocket team, which is a shame as I like doing that.
