Playing Spike

This past weekend, my family and I went to DunDraCon, an annual gaming convention we've been attending the past three years. As usual, it was an absolute blast, but this year even more so. Why? Because I *finally* won a lottery slot in the Buffy RPG game. :)

I've been trying to get into this game for the last three years, to the point where I make everybody in the family put it as their number one pick for that session in hopes of increasing my odds. I traded off with them for Car Wars, since there was only one session of that, which turned out to be hysterical when all five of us got in. For the Buffy game, we only managed to snag one slot, and crazy enough, it was even me.

Now, I'm not an RPGer. I always loved the character building aspect of it, but the actual play always left me a little bored. However, I didn't care about that since this was Buffy. Even better, we got to pick our characters. Buffy and Willow were already taken by the time I had a chance to snag one, so I made the obvious choice. Spike. The scenario was set between S4 and S5, which was fun even though we ended up with a Riley in the mix. Oddly enough, that turned out to be hysterical because he ended up volunteering to protect Willow (who we needed to keep safe since she was the only one we could trust with magic), so I made a point of alerting Buffy every chance I got that Riley seemed more interested in her best friend than her.

The game took all of Sunday, and I came home to rummage around in my Buffy stuff because I was pretty damn sure I'd bought the core rulebook for the game at some point. Lo and behold, I had. I don't think I've ever looked through it before, though. I bought it mostly just to have. I'd love to play again, but that would require finding people who would play with me, and I just don't know who that would be. Oh well. At least I got to play once.
