Old news, apparently, but it didn't make the front pages.

Haven't played for years, but enjoyed when I did. Any other old D&D geeks here?

Yup, I geeked out to it to the limits: D&D, heavy metal, and Dragonlance books. It was introduced to me by a friend whose father was a 700 Club fan (no, seriously) and discouraged the monster manuals strongly. I was in love with magicians, but I always died early because I never had any hit points. Too bad we were too lazy to stick to a campaign longer than a few weeks - wizards become very strong in time and I never got to enjoy this.

By the age of 15 or so, it just got old. Fun game - it really requires a creative DM to make it sing.
