NOTE - The MB doesn’t like posts over 4000 charachters? I’ll just DP if that’s a’right with all of yas =P
Wow, this is a lot of information for me to process. I would like to start by thanking you all for your help in this matter, and that I because of what you guys have told me, I feel that all around DnD isn’t really a bad thing…just somthing I would have to be careful with. I’m a 17 year old kid, attend mass regularly, confession weekly, rosary daily, etc etc etc. I highly doubt I would have problems with the occult.
Makerteacher - The dragon quest I was talking about is a video game orriginaly released in Japan in the 80s by Enix, later released over here as “dragon warrior” It’s pretty much your generic video game RPG. Such and so kid is decended of such and so great knight and it is his destiny to defeat the evil dragon lord or whatever =P I find LARPs (live action role plays) interesting, but I really don’t have time for THAT kind of thing. I cosplay on occasion…but that’s about it. I’m not much of a groupe person =p
AmandaPS - I really don’t see a difference. I don’t know how much RPing you’ve done in the past, if any at all. But I’ve been deeply involved in a few different kinds of role playing throughout the years, including video game role plays, and online text based role plays. You really do become quite involved with your charachters, personaly I tend to create charachters that I would like to meet/be IRL (in real life). For instance, for my primary charachter, Beloch Shrike, I created a race known as the shai. I created an honor system for them, and tried and follow it myself (Before I read the book of five rings, and found a much more worthy honor system =P).
Also, it seems we share interests, I’m comprable to an E ranked saber fencer (at least that’s my estimate) and am testing for my High Yellow belt in TKD in a few days. Martial arts are a big part of my life. I’m also an aspiring computer programmer, graphics designer, and just about anything else to do with computers, telephones or electronics.
Pug - I have no personal reservations, but all of the adults that I know tell me it’s forbidden by the church. Which i have always found hard to believe.
oh, and about this -
“You are not doomed to endless nerd-dom if you play it. I know players who managed to get married, even to have kids and seem normal.”
I am too doomed to endless nerd-dom/geek-ish-ness! And proud of it! However, there are a lot of geek/nerd girls that I know that are possibilities if I ever decide to end my relationship strike. I often wish there were less of them…chosing which one to pursue would make my head hurt (thus the relationship strike X’D)
Jdg164 - Light is so annoying…it makes my light-deprived eyes burn really badly X’D
