Hi folks. I wanted to introduce myself briefly. I'm a D&D player from way back, c. 1981. Started with the Basic rules and have done most of my playing with 2nd Edition, though I've never DM-ed beyond 1st. Haven't had much time for gaming in recent years as the rest of my group lives in Toronto and I'm out here in New Brunswick, so it occurs to me that this might be a good place to fill that lack.
As a personal note, or maybe reminiscence, I'll offer an image of the second game I ever played. A new acquaintance had just introduced me to the basic set. He did not have any dice, so we wrote numbers on paper and drew them from a jar by way of making our rolls. It was love at first contact, and this is the system that I used during my second game, a few weeks later, when introducing my two best friends to D&D, working from a photocopied rule book. I say this now--and he may kill me or worse for bringing it up--because one of the friends present during that that suburban basement all-nighter was the person who would later become known here as Alacrity, who for the record is the best DM I've ever encountered.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to know the community here. I hope to find myself in a game with some of you before too long.

Well, hey! Any friend of Alacrity's...
...gets a super-slobbery one of these!
Welcome aboard, Gallirian! Always a joy to have "new" faces show up, hereabouts... especially when they're looking to participate don'cha know?
Anyway... Ummm... "Don't feed the Grugg" ... "Here's a towel"... "Always as if Eol's been soaking his toes in the coffee before you ask for a cup"... Ummmm, what else?
Aw heck, if you know Alacrity, I'm sure you know the "guidelines"...
Edit: Ha! I finally got one before the other Innmates passed out towels. YES!!!

It seems the 'glitch' has you showing the number of posts of whomever posts just ahead of you. As now you have the same number of posts as me. Not sure what is causing it; we have had some glitches on here lately messing with posts.
Thanks for the welcome, Celeste. As for how I found the place, I've been aware of it for a while through a couple of old friends but have been hesitant to sign on and speak up. The only gaming I've ever done is table-top, and I was not sure about other media. But I'd very much like to give this place a try. Currently trying to track down my old manuals, which have been shuffled through many moves and are probably feeling rather cranky with me over the neglect. Anyway it is nice to be made so welcome so quickly.
