I am a old time gamer at heart - I discovered the original D&D rulebooks at age 6 (some 24 years ago), and fell absolutely, positively in love with role playing. As a child, I watched the Dungeons & Dragons Saturday morning cartoon - not in re-runs, but in it's original running. I progressed from the various boxed sets of D&D to AD&D (now known as first edition) to second edition D&D, to 3rd edition, and finally to 3.5 edition of Dungeons & Dragons. I read the rulebooks in my spare time. I fantasize campaigns, both as a player and as a DM.
I've played, I've DM'ed. I've played other role playing games, but I always seem to return to my original.
In short, I'm hooked, completely and totally. There is no hope for me to overcome my obsession with D&D gaming, so I might as well make the best of it ;-)
