New Premium Module: Tyrants of the Moonsea! Read More
First, let me apologize about the bloggy feel of my post.
So, when I first started playing all these great 90's D&D video games I never actually played pen & paper D&D. I was in my young - mid teens and was an in-the-closet-nerd who hid the fact that I was all about playing RPGs and loved diving into some of the "geekier" video games from my friends. I always wanted to try the P'n'P version but never had enough guts to try it in fear of peer ridicule.
Fast foward to this past summer. I was on a project at work with some new co-workers and found out that one was a semi-hidden nerd who formerly played D&D. She brought some old modules and we played a bit and I had a BLAST (as I thought I would). I finally told my friends about it recently (most of them the same friends I had from when I was younger) and while a few laughed some of them mentioned that they had the same thoughts and shared some interest in playing some D&D. Now I am playing D&D encounters at my local comic shop every Wednesday!
Anyone else have a similar experience or ever have the desire to play the real D&D but were to afraid to take the plunge?
Side note: I kind of want to get into playing over the net too if possible to find a group with the right times/edition but I don't know how much it would hold my attention since I really like to roll the dice. I feel like it would lose some the magic.
No longer In-the-closet-nerd,
