I figured, in a whole community of gamers, there must be some Table Top Players on these forums. This forum is for discussing about things like your party, your favorite RPs, or your favorite experiences in dungeons.

One of my favorite experiences in Pathfinder was when we were first starting, my friend found a empty wine jug and threw it at the wizard and the DM counted that as an attack. The bottle missed and the wizard started yelling IRL, "I'll get you for that Dwarfy!" It is one of my favorite moments with my friends.

This reminds me I should play Buldar's Gate someday. Last time I played I just messed around as a thief...I'd prefer to be a necromancer or a conjorer.

This is like the 4th thread like this about D&D/ Table Top games. We probably dont have alot of those players around here cause these threads always seem to die.

It does my heart good to see people playing Pathfinder. I prefer that to the new edition of Dungeons and Dragons too. <3

When did you get started on it?

Pathfinder is so amazing! Unlike that 4.0 D&D :P

We got started in 6th grade when our dwarf fighter brought in the kit. We are all in 7th grade now and still adding members to our ranks. I sadly missed todays meeting because I was sick. :, {

Haven't played in a few years, but I've been playing D&D since it was AD&D 1st Edition. Last I played was 3rd edition. Never played Pathfinder.

My favourite edition is still second edition. It fixed most of the 2nd Ed. problems and it's simple. Unfortunately most people here that still play prefer to play 3rd or 4th ed.

I've also played several other RPGs, my favourite being Paranoia.

I love playing D&D, don't really have many opportunitys to play it but when I can I enjoy it. I play 3.5 rules. I also prefer cities over dungeons, never have been a big fan of those.

I'm gonna try again.
Currently playing: Rune Factory 4, inFamous: Second Son, and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

I believe I have the Shadowrun DM book in my closet somewhere...

(After 5 minutes of looking, the Shadowrun DM book is dragged out of the closet. Another 10 minutes pass while pages are turned.)

...Yep, I have the Shadowrun DM book.

Thanks given to Xkhaoz for that one avatar.

I run a 3.5 Eberron campaign, I try to run it once every month as I'm too busy to do so more often. I've been playing on and off for over 30 years now.

I started playing D&D back in middle school which was Advanced 2nd edition at the time and yes I remember THAC0. Played that since 1990 up to the release of 3.0 in 2000 I think it was. Played a little bit of 3.5 but had to stop due to the birth of my son and havent played since. I still have alot of my old books and stuff and my son who is twelve has been asking me to teach him unfortunately all the people that I use to play with back in the day no longer play and I have no idea how to find a group that wants to deal with a new player.

Some of my favorite campaign worlds have been Forgotten Worlds, Ravenloft and Greyhawk,

I didn't even know people still played these types of RPGs. Has their popularity has a resurgence?

I ask because I hear a lot of you saying you got into it during middle school, but when I was in middle school it was all about chess & Yu-Gi-Oh! (then again, I was in middle school during '03-'04 & '04-'05, which I believe was during the surge of trading card popularity).

That sounds about right. I got into D&D in 1990 even Magic the Gathering was unheard of. By the time I graduated High School which was 1996 MtG was quickly eclipsing D&D as the top nerd game. So yeah by 2003 card games where in full swing. I dont think D&D ever left so much as card games were more convenient, I mean why lug a whole bunch of books around when all you need is a deck of cards? Still alot of people I knew that played MtG at school played D&D at home so I think that is what was. Just convenience.

The popularity never waned.

RPGs stopped being a public spectacle because the media found a new scapegoat for all the social ills in the world (videogames). Once the media started ignoring RPGs, people who weren't into RPGs forgot about them.

But the production of RPGs never ceased. In fact, if anything there are more of them now than ever.
