Exotic D&D?

2009 June 22

Over the weekend, most of our D&D crew packed up and headed out to Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve here in Colorado.  We had packed our gaming gear, however a smattering of bad weather on Saturday afternoon and some overly rambunctious children prevented us from actually getting to play D&D under the stars.  The weekend wasn’t a complete loss from a roleplaying perspective… I got all sorts of context surrounding moving through difficult terrain and what a desert ecology actually feels like first hand as we hiked to the top of some of the largest sand dunes in North America.

One of my fellow campers joked that we were probably one of the only camping groups to come to this site with a battle mat and D&D books in tow.  We all had a laugh and lamented that it was too windy and dark to play properly so we left our campaigning aside, but it got me wondering about all of the interesting places that our readers come from.

So I ask you this, gentle reader: What’s the most exotic locale that you’ve played a roleplaying game in?  Did the environment get in the way?  Did bears eat your dice?  Birds swoop in and snatch your mini off of the battle board?  Tell us about it!

    Also, I triple checked that I hadn’t accidentally typed “erotic D&D” into the subject line. 🙂
