Like a lot of people out there, I had always wanted to learn how to play Dungeons & Dragons from the moment my mother (yes has to be the mother doesn't it) mentioned the game after a trip to the library. This, of course, bared no fruits as it was left in a comment and we could never seem to find the game again.
After many many... many years. I found a boyfriend who knew how to play Dungeons & Dragons. That little experiment ended in a disaster. Not too long after that, however, I decided to start learning it on my own. With a little bit of elbow grease and some spare time I began to learn the bare basics.
All in all, I still don't understand absolutely anything about the game outside of the basics... Maybe...
