In November, I will be 31 years old and a father of my daughter Avaleigh. I have been playing RPGs since I was 14 when I first got onto the AOL Free MUD, Legends of Terris. Back in those days, I was really big into role playing and loved the imagination that I was able to take advantage of, since everything was in words and the graphics weren't even thought of yet.
As more games came out, I would go to them, always boasting of my great past with Role Playing Games... but that was sort of a lie.
As we all know, D&D is one of the first official RPGs that would allow the players to use their imagination and team up with others to complete their goals. Well, to this day, I have never played a full campaign.
That's not to say I haven't tried. Over the years I've bought most of the books and have leanred how to play and I think I will be quite good at it, but to date, I have never had a game with friends.
That all will change this coming Monday, May 7th, 2012. One of my friends in the area said he wanted to put a game together and run a campaign, so once again I brushed off the books and went to work on learning how to play the game. I don't think it will be all that hard to get back into D&D since I have always been a fast learner, and I've played a few Virtual Table games the last few days (I even started building one based on Keep of the Shadowfell).
Now on top of all of this, their team is already up to L6. I'm not sure if they just rolled L6 characters or if they actually built them, but either way I feel like I am missing something of the lower levels. So I talked to my wife and she talked with a couple of her friends and we're going to get a small 4 person team together with a possible 5th joining us as we go along.
Now the L6 team I am looking forward to since I will get to play with vets, but the team with my wife and friends I am really looking forward to since it will get us to learn the game together and we can have a good bit of fun while we're at it.
I'll let you know how it goes next week. Until then, this is Jorom, signing out.
