    Name: Dean or Dino

    Age: 42

    Loc : Rochester ,New York moved around the states a lot now back in Canadaigua ,NY

    Started ? Not sure the day. Me and my BF at the time were bored one day and went to his Aunt and Uncles house,he was in a little room panting little men. I asked whats up, he showed me the D&D figures he was painting i was awww struck. ( i was 11 or 12 ) I said i had heard of it and all ways wanted to play,he laughed and took us to his DEN. He had a topic graphical map he had made of his D&D world (cities,castles and countries ) in great detail .
    I was pretty poor growing up so i saved for some time buying the AD&D sets ,i read them over and over (it was really sad) It was also hard to find other full time players at 1st.
    D&D lost out to females and sports after a time,more so the females.

    NICKs: Prymus- a god of the dead (forget where i read it) it just felt right Tarrasque- that monster was just badass Happy
    Arumm- just need a another nick once in a while EQ,ect...

    Okay, Skip! Denis and I spoke and are willing to admit it, we're "only" 51-ish years "young." (And really looking forward to Medicare and Social Security!) That help you any?

    (Skip - {only} 41) Kids! What can I say? Evil Grin

    Love ya', Skip! And I'm just having fun with you. Wink

    (Glad you like my story, by the way.)

    So............10 years to go and it's "Subtract 2 points of Strength, 2 points of Dexterity and 1 point of Constitution". Still, you gain a point of Wisdom. Bargain. Happy

    First Name: Dave

    Age: 45 in a few days

    Location: Logan Utah

    When you started playing D&D: When I was 13, 1981 I believe. I lived in a pretty rough neighborhood but this game kept me and my friends occupied instead of going down the wrong paths other people our age were taking.

    What rules you started with: Basic D&D.. the Red Bookm but we quickly advanced to AD&D 1

    where does your Forum Nick come from:
    When I was a kid, I hung out with a group of friends, and we called ourselves 'Dymond Dave and his disciples of Lust'. The Dymond part kinda stuck.

    I never noticed that we had so many people from the UK or the RSA here.

    Anyway:

    1) James;

    2) 44;

    3) Clarksville, TN;

    4) March 1981;

    5) Blue Book (just the book, no box...), then went back to Greyhawk, Blackmoor, Eldritch Wizardry, and Swords and Spells;

    6) A lack of originality... Wink

    Re: A Couple of Questions

    First Name?
    Jay

    Age?
    35

    Location?
    Little Rock, AR - or as the wife and I call it The Cesspool

    When you started playing D&D?
    '88 or '89 my sister started dating this punk that I now call bro-in-law. His best friend was a heck of a DM, excellent at spinning a story but completely ignoring rules. We gamed every weekend for about 6 months until he was arrested and sent to the big house. I took over as the primary DM from there and have never looked back.

    What rules you started with?
    AD&D, which sadly had its name posthumously changed to 1e.

    where does your Forum Nick come from?
    I was a poor puppy in college. I was down to one disposable contact lens, and not being able to afford a new box of 'em, I went for a week or two only having sight in one eye. The fellas called me One Eye Jay. I started using it as my go-to name for video game avatars and such. Over the years, One Eye gained personification as a crusty old bastard separate from my own identity, hence Old One Eye or Ole One Eye. I use it on all message boards I join, so if you see Old One Eye elsewhere - it is me.
