In Which I Fail to be a Sponsor

A clutch of students at the school where I teach are trying to form a D&D club. We have a gaming club, but it's board/card/video games. I was tapped as a potential sponsor, but coaching debate takes up so much of my time that I can't really commit to it. 

...and that sucks. When I was a larval teacher (doing all my pre-service shit), I was really into the idea that someday I would sponsor some kind of rpg/gaming club. Now I have the chance and I just don't have the time. 

I mean, yeah, it'd probably be 5th edition, but that's the D&D for this generation and I shan't begrudge them for it. 

The only two other teachers in this school that I know play are also likewise busy with extra commitments and can't do it, either. 

Damnation.

  1. Ooo...that’s rough.

    You know, it wouldn’t HAVE to be 5E, considering what’s available for purchase these days (including PDFs of original texts). Besides, it’s not like The Company is offering fantastic tutorials for new players. Just saying.

    1. The kids want to play D&D, and this is the D&D that they play. I'm not going to say "sure, I'll sponsor your D&D game" and then try to get them to play a different game.

      Also, as the sponsor, I don't think I'd be involved in the game, just a place for them to be able to play at school.

  2. That sucks. I know what it's like. For me it's balancing academic research/paper writing with gaming. I'd love to be running three different campaigns right now. But just no time. Or if I take the time, my career suffers.

    1. I had a little taste of the academic paper writing life when I participated in a research grant project this summer. It totally drained my desire to read or write anything for myself. I can't imagine that I'd enjoy it full time.

  4. Being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com

    1. I resent the insinuation that I am human, sir. Your vampire kingdom has insulted me and I demand reparations.

      I'm thinking a $20 Chili's gift card should do the trick.
