Greeting from a new guy

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!!!

thanks

Thanks, Eol. I grew up with a slobbery dog, so I guess I feel right at home. Come to think of it, she had point ears, too.

how did that happen?

Obviously I've got some learning to do as my second post identified me as an RDI fixture with 1801 posts. Hmmm. Time to check the instruction manual.

hmmm....

That was odd, usually one of us is quick enough to toss a towel.

...


I claim no responsibility; I had an exam.


Anyway, welcome to the Inn, I'm sure you'll find it quite comfortable here. If you have any questions, just ask. Usually there is someone around to help (sorry again about the towel thing...)

too late

Welcome Gallirian!

Actually I think Alacrity got back at you already by not warning you about the famous Eol Face-Lick! I see you have plenty of towels, Enjoy your time here.

Edit: 1800 posts? Well I take back my new guy welcome, seems your a veteran.

An idea

Ok then, well Welcome anyway!

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, Celeste

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.

New user. Hasn't got a proper refresh to assign his post count. Steals other's post counts. Can't trust him.

Welcome aboard anyway.

Number thief.

Seriously dude ...

... I don't know how to fix it!

Hey, look. Now I've got yours, too. At this rate, I should be able to take over the world by approximately Tuesday.

LOL

As soon as the system time rolls over you'll be back to your "normal/actual" post count and such. You're in good shape.
