So a couple weeks back, I got out the Chessex BattleMat and some Dungeon Tiles for my kids to use while dorking around with some D&D minis. We've been playing a very simple form of minis battles lately and this just added to the fun.
Last time I only posted about their dungeon designs on the Chessex mat and the fun we had playing through Bobby's dreadful rooms and Anna's chaotic caves. So this time I wanted to display my son's handiwork using some Dungeon Tiles to create a fun little room in which he and I could continue our dorking-around. And thus...
Here's a (somewhat suckily-focused) shot of Bobby's creation:
And here's a closer shot looking into the room. Crazy fire traps there, eh? Must be something good in some hidden door behind the big one. Hmmn.....:
Dig those two orcs standing over the swirling portal of doom (or whatever). Here we see the orc leader Tarqo as he beckons to his 2nd in command and is all like "well Grund, WTF is that big orange thing?!?!?"
"Dunno." replies Grund. "Shine some frakkin' light on it, mage!"
"Ah-ha! 11? I think that's a 'miss'. Dunno tho'...INT is my dump stat." reveals Grund.
"Ya' mean *one* of yer dump stats, ya clumsy, pig-faced, motherless, wuss!" clarifies the mage before he quickly casts Dimesion Door and safely departs.
Ok, all seriousness aside (hehe), I love what my son did with these tiles. He stacked and unstacked them, placed and replaced them, adjusted and ...err...well...adjusted them some more, until he got the exact design he wanted. He had that "don't bother me, I'm workin' on something huge here!" look in his eyes....with his tongue curled up and out to one side in that total concentration facial gesture....you know the one...
No, not that one, silly.
Now come on! Jeeez! That is one freakin nutty pic though.
Yep, there ya go!
Anyway he made a nice little room for us to use for our (short) battle session that night. With the Chessex mat session and the design phase of this room behind us, we didn't have a whole lot of time left to fight with our minis. Ah well, he'll just have to wait until next time to embarrass me...err....engage my troops.
Until then, we'll be waiting for him...
