My name is Dani (short for Daniela), I’m 28 years old and I was always very interested in Pen & Paper games - but as I never had somebody in my circle of friends who share this interest, I never dared to dive into this hobby. A week ago, I bought the Pathfinder Beginners Box, and my first step in the amazing, limitless world of tabletop RPG started!
Of course I am still pretty unexperienced and would need a lot of help and explainations, but I am hoping that I will find a small group which welcomes me and my fiancé and lets us take part in their big adventures
I hope you’ll find a group soon. Maybe open a thread in the general rpg section to get more people to see that you’re looking for a group.
Also the Thursday-game-group is a good start to meet people from the forum. As the name suggests the group meets pretty much every thursday to play various games.
For more info check out the general rpg section.
I have DMed a fair bit of Pathfinder and heard good thing about the starter kit, although I have yet to try it myself.
We have a weekly(ish) game on Thursday, the game itself change every week, as it has become the opportunity for people try a variety of rules and games.
It is not as confusing as it might sound, however and that might be a good opportunity for you to try various games and see which ones you prefer (this week, we had a couple of D&D games, Pathfinder has shown up a few times too and I might DM it again at some point).
That might be a good way for a newby to get into the hobby (and it is also an opportunity to meet people and get invited in a group)…
Anyway, welcome to the boards and I look forward to playing with you and your fiancé.
Hey Thopthes, hey Simon!
Thanks for the nice welcome! I will check out the rpg section and maybe I will try the Thursday game night - i just hope it’s not a problem that I’m a total newbie. I don’t want to annoy anyone with many beginner questions.
No worries. The games change from week to week and are usually new(ish) to most of the players.
No problem, I for one greatly enjoy teaching the RPGs to newbies…
Welcome to the forums Dani! Nice of you to drop by As Simon mentioned, Thursday night’s are a great way to meet a few of us. Don’t worry about being a newbie, none of us are ‘power gamers’ or anything like that, we’d much prefer to meet new people and have a laugh with the multitude of systems that are out there. I don’t know how this Thursday will work out, I believe Simon won’t be there (H too?) although Thopthes mentioned running a sci-fi game, if I’m not mistaken! Anyhow, you’re more than welcome to come along and say Hi.
