Right now, it looks like my second gaming session is only going to have two people too. If I don’t play, it’ll be two more weeks following then that we game again. So basically, I’ll be one month behind of where I wanted to start.
The thing that chaps my hide is that I’d like to play with only two players, which is nigh well impossible with D&D 4E, but very doable with an earlier edition game like BFRPG or LL. Why, because you can pad out an under-sized group with hirelings (or as I think of them, hit points on the hoof).
It’s not too late for me to suddenly convert over the campaign. It’d be a huge change in campaign tenor, but I could probably keep most of the maps, et al.
