Though--I know it's been asked, let's talk more about it. So I started playing back in my early college years. I was very much into partying, drinking and finding companionship around campus. If you saw me then, you'd think I wasn't into dnd--which to be fair, I wasn't; at least not until I tried it. I still remember, I had a history class with a tiny, skinny guy with glasses. We were paired to do a report on World War I (my idea, since I am a huge WWI nerd.) I remember we got most of it done, but he comes over to my dorm and knocks on the door. The girl I was with at the time opened it up, and says to me "There's some weird guy at the door." I find him there and I greet him like an old pal. Mind you--this guy and I were total opposites, but I never treated someone as anything less than equal, whether they were party people or school oriented. He brings the rest of his part of the report and says to me that he's going to play dnd with his friends. I asked him about it--and his little face just--lit up. Telling me about crazy stories and rolling dice. I have to admit--it went right over my head, but he seemed so excited to talk about it... so I asked him "Can I come play with y'all?" His face lit up even more. Told the girl I'd catch her later--and the two of us went to play dnd. I felt like a fish out of water at first--out of my element, and into their world. They were savage, maybe it was because I was new, or because I wasn't one of them--but after my initiation... it became a weekly thing. I couldn't name you many of the party friends I made, nor could I name any of the girls that spent the night with me... but I can name you all 5 of my dnd pals; first, middle and last names, where they grew up and all their favorite things--my life long friends. We played 3rd Edition DnD, I played a charismatic ranger, breaking hearts and wrecking faces; named Marlboro after my favorite brand of cigarettes. Memories... it makes me happy that I still play with remnants of them today. Sadly, over the internet since the chance of seeing them in person ever again is slim to none; but am not the type to say never. Once I left that college and came to college out in Dallas, I made even more friends and played even more games. I even managed to find a girlfriend that loved it too. I discovered Serenity, Starfinder, Pathfinder, DnD 5th Edition, and the list goes on. What crazy stories do you have for pen/paper games? What games do you currently play or plan on playing? Also--if anyone is ever interested, I play on Saturdays with my pals; and the door is always open. Though we'll begin to play again in the next few weeks due to the holidays. We play DnD 5th Edition, but we're moving to 4th I believe--and we play Starfinder also. Also!--in the near future, I'll be hosting a test run of a game I actually made. More info on that at a later time.
