I started playing AD&D in 1979 and, along with my fellow players, nearly flunked a year of university as a result. After 7 or 8 years of D&D, with a smattering of Traveller, I dropped out of role-playing until the late 90’s, when my wife-to-be and another friend wanted to start a D&D campaign. It was steady D&D thereafter until 4E came out. After 2 years of DMing 4E I decided it wasn’t for me and tried unsuccessfully to get the group to switch to MGT (not enough killin’ and takin’ stuff I guess). That group went back to 4E (I’m a player now, which is ok), and I’m GMing a subgroup trying out Cubicle 7’s new The One Ring.
