I began by playing D&D 4E. Since nobody that I knew was playing, I invited every nerdy friend I had, and soon we had two ro three games games going during every weekly meeting. During this time, my friends and I also learned how to play 3.5 (which we preferred), DnD Next, and Pathfinder. They soon graduated, and me, being an underclassman, was left behind.
Soon I found my way to this website, and I don't plan to leave any time soon.
