Confessions of A Part Time Sorceress -Review
This is a book I'm sure one of you out there is interested in. It is, as the cover claims, "a girl's guide to the Dungeons & Dragons game." Written by Shelly Mazzanoble, it's full of wit and energy. Several times, I've burst out into giggles despite the fact I was in class at the time or riding the bus. Shelly goes into all the rules and the world of D&D enough so one can understand how to play and even DM a bit (after some experience), but without complicating it with all the unnecessary extras that usually dissuade a novice.
With a lot of jokes relating to both D&D and all those girly things at the same time, she captures people's attention, and for girls, probably convince them to play. A perfect idea for that girlfriend of yours who refuses to play because it's "complicated, boring, and for guys". I know that, more than ever before, I want to get into a campaign, and already character ideas are sprouting.
I wonder how weird it'd be to play in a campaign with my teacher DMing it? =D
