I had never played Dungeons and Dragons as a child. I had heard about it and assumed that it was evil or demonic based on the biased descriptions from the adults I was surrounded by.
However, my husband introduced me to the game when we were dating and I must say it was completely not what I expected, nor was it like anything anyone had ever portrayed it to me. I enjoyed creating my own characters and basically getting "to choose my own adventure" and using my wits to find treasures, battle enemies, and create storylines.
Does anyone still play it?
My husband does, every chance he gets. He's been playing since the 80's. I've played other RPG's, but never got into D&D. I was like you, though. It never sounded like something I'd be interested in, but when I started playing, I loved it.
You're welcome over for a game anytime you're in Michigan!
Yes! I don't, but my boyfriend did when we started dating. The two groups that he was with fell apart and we got into boardgaming as a hobby. I don't like D&D. I don't get games without a direct outline. Having the DM make it up bugs me. Of course, that is what many people love about D&D.
I know many people in my boardgaming group do have campaigns still or sit around and daydream of them.
Also, if you go to a gaming convention like Origins in Columbus, Ohio, there are huge halls with D&D or similar RPGs. It is alive and well.
I'm 45 and I've been playing off and on since middle school. My son and I play in two father & son D&D groups. He has Asperger's Syndrome and it's been great for him in socialization and problem-solving, plus it's just fun.
Funny you should mention the Satanic thing. When I was in high school, for English class we had a debate about whether or not D&D was a bad influence on young people. I argued in the negative, and won handily.
I loved that game too finding other players was difficult though they didn't like it for whatever reasons but I enjoyed the 'imagination' involved.
I actually used to live in Michigan and still have family there so I may just have to stop on by... Lol
If I could find some like-minded people I would love to play--I used to play when I was in graduate school.
A funny story: at one time we had 24/7 games running with five different DMs, so we would drop in and out of games as our schedules required. I used to go over to play and sit on the sofa, but my schedule was so exhausting I would usually fall asleep after an hour or so, and as a result the sofa got named "The Couch of Sleepiness." Then the legs broke off of the sofa, and it was rechristened as "The Dwarven Couch of Sleepiness."
Isn't it odd that the game is so stigmatized? "Oh you're so weird - using your imagination to create an exciting time with your friends!"
I know a whole group who plays (5-10 people), the only reason I don't is that I keep moving away from them!
