D&D 3E
I got this problem... 
9th-Jul-2003 12:25 pm
OK, just so you know, I have been playing D&D since 1977. I have been DMing since 1980. Over the years I have moved and at one time I was DMing one campaign and playing in two. But my life has become very complicated. I have a wife and two kids. Now my group meets once a month (not really enough for me, but what can you do)... My group consists of my wife[42](barbarian), my son[13](ranger), my daughter[9](sorcerer), neighbor[51](cleric), and me[43](dm). How do I get everyone together so that we can play more??? Any suggestions???

Play during a well-balanced family dinner?

*applauds* That made me smile, regardless if you meant it sarcastically or not.

sounds like it should be an easy group to assemble. Just talk to them. Tell them you want to play more often and that the game is better if you don't have to spend the first hour re-capping last session and figuring out what's what. If they are just not terribly motivated, go to your local game store and start up a second group, those kids are old enough to give you a night out to do your thing. I'd invite you to my group, were you local.

I played with someone not too long ago in an email game of the Star Wars RPG (d20). At first, I thought that the idea would bomb, but it's turned out to be a really excellent idea. Gives me another game I'm playing in without ever having to leave my seat at work or at home!

The GM usually makes all the rolls himself, has all the character sheets so he knows the results - occasionally he'll ask us for a roll and we just trust each other. We send in "moves" on what we'd like to do in the given scenario. Occasionally, he presents us with options (#1-5 usually pertain to the given scenario, #6 is usually "Surprise me!"). It may seem a little clunky, but it has actually worked out rather well.

It may be something you want to try if everyone's online.

It's all about setting up a consistent day and time.

However, I would recommend getting into some form of online RPG since it sounds like you're not getting as much gaming in as you'd like.

That you're the head of the family, and you DEMAND more D&D!

Another trick would be to also convince your kids that this is fun free time and not any sort of family time get together sort of thing.
