I like games. But the games I like most are RPGs.
I was introduced to the 'Red Box' in 1984. I was in 6th grade when my Quest teacher put that red box in my hands. Quest was a class for advanced students. The red box was Dungeons & Dragons basic set.
My teacher asked me personally to vet the game for our class. I was too shy and too insecure to be the center, teaching all my classmates about such a creative game. Maybe that's why it was love at first sight.
Before I handed that box back to my teacher on Monday, I had already bought my own copy that same weekend.
I'm much older now, but my love for that game has never diminished. The game tables I've sat at, may have given me more trials & tribulations over the years, than the fabled adventures of untarnished memories we would hear rumors of.
Rumors of those long game nights, of epic adventures, played by fantasy cabals in the 70s. And even more epic adventurers that would never be forgotten. No matter how much time had past.
The one hard, cold fact I think all gamers share in common is this: Life dictates your gaming schedule far more often than your desire to play games ever did.
But I'm not giving up! The game is afoot!
Thank You, Roll20 for giving us all new tools to carry on our finest adventures yet!
