44: My D&D Diary- Preludes & Codas

Ben has been a GM for over 20 years, but in all that time, he's never really run D&D! 5th edition has inspired him, though, to step up to the plate and take a swing at the Adam of all tabletop role-playing games. Hear him ponder and meditate on systems, settings, and why he's taking a stab at running 5E! More updates to follow!
