I've just updated my profile for the blog, and I've decided to post it here:
I started with D&D in 1982 at the tail end of the Holmes Basic era. My first set was Holmes Basic with B2 and chits. Two brothers who were neighbors had the same set, and the Monster Manual (which I found simply enchanting) and showed me how to play.
My first character was a magic-user named Greedo (after one of my favorite Star Wars figures) who quickly ended up with a +10 dagger, +10 ring of protection and an artifact that could summon the creatures of the Zodiac. It was a blast, and I was hooked.
These days I am a player in an AD&D group. I've been with my current group for over a year now, and we've been exploring T1-4 since last fall. We play twice a month, in person.
I can be found at the Acaeum and OD&D Discussion forums as Zenopus, Dragonsfoot as Zenopus77, and Knights & Knaves Alehouse as Zenopus Archives.
