What is your experience playing D&D? With RPG's in general?
D&D... not much experience. I never really had the time or the schedule to get a D&D group together, not to mention a general lack of interest where I live. I have, however, poured over the books for 3.5e, 5e, and pathfinder over the years, coming up with different characters I would like to play, getting a basic understanding for the mechanics, and immersing myself in the lore of various different settings. I do have a vast experience with RPG's in general, as I'm an avid gamer; however my experiencing in roleplaying is rather limited.
Please describe the D&D character you want to play including your class:
I'm interested in a variety of classes, and would likely roll up one of each over time. However, the two that I'm currently the most interested are the rogue and the paladin, and a Fighter. Here's an... idea of the type of characters they would be.
I would play the assassin with a heart of gold (Neutral/Chaotic Good Rogue). Someone who takes the job and accepts the money, but has a very strict personal moral compass, and will outright refuse a job if it goes against it (such as targeting women or children.)
Or maybe the Paladin, orphaned as a young child when marauding demons happened upon his village and began to enslave and massacre everyone; who only escaped death or worse by hiding under the corpse of his mother, who sacrificed her life. He who turned to the church and dedicated his life to the faith, to become strong and protect the weak, and to oust the the evils from the world, to rid it of the corrupting essence of undead, demons, devils and all other manner of infernal beings. (Preference for this one, but I can make either work.)
Another character I've been working on is more of a young boy, who grew up in a large city (likely the capital), one day saw a parade of the Knights of the Order, and after seeing their charisma, the auras they exuded, seeing the love and adoration they received from the cloud, set forth from that day to become one himself; he trained every day, read, slept, dreamt of paladinhood, devoting himself to good. So less of a Paladin and more like a chivalrous knight, a fighter of renown, who fights for the people and the greater good, willing to do whatever it takes, to sacrifice himself if need be, to save those he holds dear.
My rogue is still being fleshed out, but my Paladin has a rather detailed backstory and the like that I've been working on for a little over a month now. The Fighter is relatively new as well.
What do you look for in a D&D campaign?
Just a group of people to share adventures with, who share in the joys and triumphs of one another when amazing loot is found or heroic and great deeds are performed, who share in the sadness and somberness of the bad times, of the death of a party member or the loss of a characters loved one or family member, who are willing to take the story and situations seriously, but also remember that in the end, it's just a game.
I am a full-time college student, and I work 20 hours a week, so I have a pretty set schedule. Tuesdays and Sundays are totally booked, and Fridays are iffy at best. I live in Hawaii, so I'm at GMT-10, with no DST, so sometimes I'll have to be reminded about scheduling changes. I'm generally available after 4:00 my time, so 6 PST/7 PDT.
