My first roleplaying experience ever, happened when i was 7. A kid across the street had this game called Dungeon and Dragons. He asked me to play, Handed me a piece of paper and said "this is you". Our first couple of sessions we didn't use dice we simply, acted out the battles with wooden sticks and Hot Wheel race tracks (Yea the Orange Ones). I cant remember what version it was but I think it was 1st ed/3rd version (Magenta Box). Regardless, i was hooked. Anyways i was gamer from then on. Dabbling in this or that. But got really into table top war gaming in my teens and my adult life. I really a wargamer at heart, but rpgs, has always allowed my creative side to thrive.
