Or, you can just be pretty munchkin and play a Bard...spells, chainmail (well Elven), and weapons oh my! Personally, I most enjoyed playing highly
skilled and specialized humans whose only magic was the items and potions they accumulated. Wish I had the time for it, but I don't even hardly ever
have time to play an actual campaign in RL.
My friends and I (and some of the wives) even have a current campaign, but we're lucky if we get to play once a month these days (so hard to even
remember what the heck we were doing).
If you ever want some great boardgames though, that scratch the DnD itch, here are some:
Runebound and Descent (even Talisman, to a degree). There are some others, but these are our favorites for some good sword and sorcery fun. They
aren't cheap though (but do give you some great figures). Both games are from $50 to $100, and there are add-ons that really add up.
If you are trying to get an online DnD chat thing going, may want to stick with earlier versions that have lots of info available online. Personally,
I still prefer 2nd edition, but I do like the 3rd edition idea of Feats, as it helps personalize the characters (i.e. two fighters can be completely
different based on their Feats).
