I’m Brian “Old Sardul” Collins – a D&D player since the “earlies” of the mid Seventies. I’m proud to have attended the first Origins convention, in Baltimore Maryland in 1975; and the first DunDraCon in Oakland California in 1976. The campaign world has progressed ever since, using D&D original rules, then the Perrin Conventions, then Arduin – which we used from about 1982 all the way up to the year 2000 when the 3rd Edition D&D brought us into the orthodox fold.
There is plenty of time for actual roleplaying these days. The Pathfinder game has energized our group and with any luck new campaigns will take hold and proceed properly!
