Well, I figure it is time to get my nerd on with the older two girls. We have a dire need of something that will give us some family time without me wanting to eat my young by the end of things, so I'm thinking a nice RPG is the way to go.
And that's where I need the nerds to weigh in. 'Cause I've never played a tabletop game.
I'm torn between looking for some old school D&D stuff (pref. used, so I don't have to lay out an arm & a leg & a basilisk for it) so as to help the girls hone their math skills--especially my first grader who likes to do her sister's third grade math homework--or a simpler D20 game for simplicity's sake. I'm leaning toward D&D because I know where to find modules online for nada. But I can probably adapt them for a D20 system without too much difficulty if I can't find modules for whatever I wind up with, and I think even the 5-year-old would be able to get in on that.
So...Suggestions/Input? (Other than "Sabra, you are far too fucking high strung for this to possibly be a good idea," 'cause...yeah. But I'm doing it anyway.)
And where the hell do I find gaming stuff locally? It's been probably 15 or 20 years since I was even near a D&D game in this city. If I was in Norfolk, I'd know just where to go...
