Does anyone still play pen and paper games?
I've always been attracted to D&D. I grew up playing RPG video games, but my attraction turned into something special when someone gave me a computer game called Baldur's Gate.
It is a game based on AD&D 2nd edition, and from what I can tell it does a darn good job of reproducing the experience. I played this game religiously as a young teen.
Here I am over a decade later still playing!
There are a few places that host table top games: the game shop at the mall, the comic shop etc.
I've always wanted to jump in and learn.
I've mostly been skittish because I'm a shy person, and also because I really don't understand the rules very well.
Playing a video game is easy. Learning to make friends again seems weird. I feel I'm too old. I'd feel like an interloper.
Growing up, none of my friends were even slightly interested in D&D even though we played board games like Risk.
For some reason I am getting an itch to try it out. Any advice on how a Johnny-come-lately can get into a game?

Every 1 to 2 weeks, we (my family) meets with our small DnD group. We play ver. 3.5.
We make a dinner out of it and have a lot of fun with it.
