|It didn't hurt that there were these "myconids" all over the woods...|
The highlight of the night was when the witch 'summoned' a terrible dragon, and the party was sure that their goose was cooked, but then the druid cast a swarm of bats to distract it and because of the bats, they figured out it was all an illusion. Pretty exciting for a 10 year old!
I also had a chance to finish up some work on a one-shot Ashen Stars adventure when it was raining and we were stuck in the tents. Ashen Stars is a pretty great science fiction rpg based on the Gum Shoe system, and I have been wanting to run a game using it for a while now. I've never written a real investigative type adventure, and those require a lot more preparation than I'm used to, but I wanted to try it and I'm so glad I did. I got to run that adventure last weekend, and boy was that a fun game. I probably should write that up sometime.
So overall camping was a win for gaming. And when we got back home I saw that my copy of the Lamentations of the Flame Princess hardcover was waiting at my door!
