D&D seder

I spent this weekend at my brother’s house in Pittsburgh. Their family organized a Dungeons and Dragons seder for this evening.

Those of you who have played D&D will know that it all comes down to having a good dungeon master. Fortunately, we had a brilliant dungeon master.

J.D. was highly prepared. He had built an entire interactive narrative around the thrilling story of the escape of the Israelites from bondage in ancient Egypt.

In addition, his delivery of the emerging interactive narrative, as well as his ability to respond to unexpected rolls of the dice, were extraordinary. We all witnessed the classic tale of bondage and libration as though we were experiencing it for the first time.

The best part was that my Mom, in the role of Miriam, was the one who threw the decisive roll of the dice. In the end, she managed to defeat Pharaoh and get us all across the Red Sea and into safety.

You couldn’t ask for a better Passover seder.
