Day 2: First person who you introduced to D&D. Which edition? Their first character?
So from the last post, my introduction to D&D wasn't incredibly informative. But I was in love with the idea of what Dungeons and Dragons might be, so I acquired the Blue Box from the book store in the mall and dove in.
I guess you could more accurately say that Doctor John Eric Holmes introduced me to D&D. It was his words that flowed into my brain, telling me finally, really, exactly what D&D was.
After perusing the blue box rules, I decided the game was definitely something I should be doing. I arranged a sleepover with my friend Chris, determined that we could figure the whole thing out.
Hats. We were sure hats were an important part of the D&D experience. After all - every hero in the blue book was in a hat, right? So he both made wizard hats out of construction paper and tape. You have to have your priorities straight - right? Then we sat on the floor in his room.
Chris rolled up a character, and I began to DM - and play D&D - for the very first time.
Honestly, I have no recollection of what his first character was. There were a lot of them. And a lot of death. Glorious, limb rending, flesh melting death.
Can life be any more enjoyable than that? I think not.
