I am a long-time gamer, starting way back when in middle school when we started playing 1st edition Dungeons & Dragons. We later moved on to Second Edition, and played some Rifts and Timelords. I kept on gaming through high school and college, but then too many of my players moved away to other states and/or countries. Fortunately, the Internet kept some of the gaming alive, and Neverwinter Nights let us resume our weekly D&D games… albeit in a slightly different fashion.
Now I’m recapturing that pen’n’paper table top feeling with some virtual table top software and Mumble voice chat.
