    Do you play? What edition? What campaign settings are your favourites?

    I'm an official Herald-level GM of the RPGA. I've been playing and running games in the Dragonlance campaign setting for years now, though I've just recently discovered a love for the new setting, Eberron. Oh, and v3.5 rocks.

    I've just started playing D&D 3.5 as a half-orc. I'm a lvl 1 Barbarian and a lvl 2 Cleric of Kord. It's fun.

    My mommy would never let me play.

    said I was gonna stab her in her sleep, cause I had been brain washed by the devil.

    I showed her. C4 is fun.

    Right now we're mostly playing 3.0 w/ a few houserules from 3.5, as well as the "Complete" line of books from 3.5.

    I guess I should say that I'm currently playing as a C/G half-orc cleric. My guy swings a nasty greatsword, as we just collected the head of a goblin bandit who was terrorizing some of the villages on the road to Baldurs Gate. We didn't get any money, but it did lead us to a mummy-guarded vault that held some interesting swag.

    I just started in a new campaign last night, in Eberron. I'm playing a N/E Maenad Psion. Fucking wicked.

    I stopped playing when I ran out of cool people to play with. It's hard to find a good group these days. Especially one where everyone showers.

    My favorite character of all time was a gnome cleric in FR. He was a badass. I'd love to resurrect him in a new campaign.

    The group I'm playing with right now contains a Dwarf with a Charisma of 4. He wears an iron mask to hide his hideous mug.

    We're going through the Black Gates on an imperial mission proposed to us by King Brownwyn of Caer Brownwyn, my half-elf Monk's hometown, tomorrow. Yay, death! ^.^
    I might find my Void Monk elemental soon! <3
    And the DM will probably turn my alignment to Lawful Good (was Lawful Neutral). Probably should anyways considering none of our party is actually Good.

    I haven't played in years for this exact reason.

    The people that always play our games don't take it incredibly serious and thus are clean. And there's a small, twelve year old asian girl with a vicious streak that plays, so there's that, too.

    That's the trick to a good group - people that don't take it incredibly serious. You have to be serious during the game, but it just can't be your life. I used to have a good group like that about ten years ago. Now I've just got a box of dice and nowhere to use them.

    I usually DM with my cousin and a few of my friends, and I made up my own campaign setting when we started. Yes, v3.5 DOES rock.

    I really enjoy the character creation process, almost about as much as I enjoy actually playing. I could tell you about the kind of characters I've created, but that would require thinking and effort, two things of which I currently have little of at my disposal.

    Effort is overrated, and thinking...

    I always wanted to get into D&D. a year ago, one of my buddies found a 1st edition rule book in his attic. We attempted to try to set up a game, but to no avail. As of now, I can't find anyone who knows how to play D&D. I've been looking for some free D&D online clients, but most of them are VERY BUGGY. Please help a aspiring nerd look for some party members. PLEASE

    I've only had the chance to play like twice in my life, but I swear it's fucking amazing. I love it. I have a really over-active imagination, so I really got into the whole role-playing thing. It was awesome.

    ..... I should play more often.

    Maybe we could set up a D&D campaign in here? With DSchneider as our DM?

    That'd actually be pretty cool. It wouldn't work with dice and such, but if we just stick to Roleplaying elements, it might be fun. As long as people are willing to not be idiots. And no dragons.*

    *No PC dragons, I mean. Battling them is fine, but just no playing as.
