Okay, this will be the last “Dogs Playing Dungeons & Dragons” for a bit!
In any group there’s always that one guy that just does his own thing, no matter what. Sure, he’s part of the team and all that, but his own needs will be seen to first! For dogs in a role-playing game, this may mean the opportunity to vicariously indulge in personal fantasies, even if it means setting group objectives aside.
Battle drills and similar training & practice are a bit like role-playing games, and give you the chance to see how different individuals react… then you know what to expect when more real stuff happens.
I’ll get back to what Joe and the rest are doing, and perhaps there will be an opportunity to see what Nikki Donner is doing at her AIT, or Advanced Individual Training school.
