D&D and Halloweens Past


1992. We were in college, and after an entire day of paintball wars (single shot pump action pistols, none of that automatic spray the woods with paint crap for us), we got ready for a whole long night of D&D.

Anyhow, we're all drinking and rolling dice and on the third floor of this guy's apartment. We hear the knock on the door of trick-or-treaters, but we're all too tired and drunk to go down and up to answer it. Besides, all we had was beer to give them anyhow, and we weren't parting with the beer.

Next thing you know, his window gets pelted with half a dozen eggs. We look out the window, and it was a bunch of high school kids, too old to be trick or treating in the first place, taunting us like the frenchman from Monty Python's Holy Grail.

Being all adrenalined up from a successful D&D slaughter, we all looked at each other, finished our beers, grabbed our paintball guns, and proceeded to hunt down and shoot the punks for the next hour, all over the neighborhood.

Best Halloween D&D night ever.
