I’m Learning to Play D&D!

After many years of almost starting in a D&D group and having it not pan out, I met up with some friends last night who had invited me to be a part of an upcoming campaign. I am very excited. I feel like D&D is such a massive part of geek fandom and even before it’s rise in popularity, it felt like something I would really enjoy doing. Now that it is almost a mainstream thing for people to do, it’s hard to ignore that it’s everywhere and I still haven’t played.

Last night, we sat down and talked about the campaign. I learned a little bit about what to expect, how to approach the game, and then we even got around to starting character creation. It was a lot of fun, but it almost felt a bit intimidating at first – like, I didn’t want to let anyone down and I wanted to build a character that would help our team accomplish the things!

I didn’t come prepared with a backstory or anything – I felt very unprepared. But we talked it all out, and I decided I wanted to base a character around the comic book character Nico Minoru from Marvel’s Runaways. I’m working on a way to incorporate a version of her into D&D terms and it’s a lot of fun. It’s a new way to look at the character as well, breaking her down into what makes her tick and trying to build something around her essence.

Anyways – I don’t have much else to say right now about it. I’m excited to start this journey to learn D&D and will update more with how it goes!
