Dungeons & Dragons and tabletop RPGs

Been playing since 1981 off and on.

After getting clean and taking time off from everything, it's a bit tough to find folks to game with that aren't having a few at the table. I've played online games (as in play by post D&D), but not for a while. There are "live" ones but I haven't tried that yet.

Surely there have to be some clean and sober gamers out there. (OK, tabletop gamers are kind of rare, and sober ones even more so...)

Jesus... Nobody responded!? Where's the world coming to!

Been playing since around...1990 (since 2nd Ed.). I should be more honest: I wasn't really "playing" back then but rather, just looking at the monster manuals. (We'll pretend that counts, mkay?)

That being said, the first serious game I played was a few years afterward when a 2nd cousin of mine brought over a Ravenloft campaign to get our feet wet with. It was a blast! Ever since then, I've been a major Forgotten Realms fan, despite having a bitter taste with what they've done to it for the past X number of years now. Haven't played in a long time, mostly because I too just lack people to play with but I think your reasons are different from mine: most people that play D&D where I live are just flat-out annoying. They can't avoid random tangents, they turn getting sidetracked into an art, they become pedantic toward rules or avoid the rules at all costs...

I play RPGs too. My favorite is Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1st ed.
I also tried a bit of D&D, Call of Cthulhu and a few others.
ALso have a bunch of games on my shelves I never got around to play.
Seems harder to get a group going now that I am older and most of my geek friends have families and careers to maintain.
I mostly games as a teenager - before booze took over my life - but I have been getting a bit into it again lately, played some d&d this spring and enjoyed it a lot

I loved reading about the Planes. My favorite campaign setting is Forgotten Realms (before the Spellplague stuff).

I'm from the Friends & Family side but I'm a long-time D&D-devotee, been playing for over thirty years now. Very much enjoying 5th edition.
Don't let what you can't control get in the way of what you can.
