1976 with Chainmail and some D&D then moved to AD&D in 77. My younger brother and his group needed a DM and got hooked.
You’re definitely not an imposter. Doesn’t matter where, when, how you started. Just enjoy.Reading the other replies, I feel like the imposter.
First time I played D&D was probably in 2001 or 2002. Played one session of 2nd edition with a teacher. I didn't understand much. And a few weeks later a friend got the 3rd edition Player's Handbook and we started short 3rd edition campaign with that teacher.
I started summer of 1981.John, over at the My First Game: Top Secret/SI thread is right! That would be an interesting thread. When did you start playing? What game was it? What was the environment in the gaming scene like at that time? Let us talk of the halcyon days, when the sun was bright and the days long. Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of.
It's a neat little game!Also played and enjoyed Runequest, Gamma World in late 1970s/ early 80s, and made use of lots of Judges Guild stuff in D&D campaigns.
Getting a bit more obscure, I also got to play a short campaign in a rare system called Bifrost. It was a British rule set, quite complex but I remember it fondly, maybe due to a good DM.
Anyone else ever play it?
