None of my geek friends, or I had ever played D&D before. I don't know how we truly called ourselves geeks not having done so. We sough to remedy that a couple weeks ago and have been playing once a week since. I thought it would be "too much" geek, but it turns out to be a lot of fun. I think the part that's most appealing is sitting around the table with my friends again.
What started out as a trial, has turned out to be pretty fun.
