As nerdy as this sounds, I recently started to play with some of my friends and coworkers and it is so damn fun. Anyone else on here play? Im trying to create a new better character and was also looking for tips.

I played once with Pwn and Gmen. I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing but I had fun.

I've never played Dungeons and Dragons and from what I've heard, I don't think I ever will. Just the same, I used to enjoy a show on youtube called Counter Monkey where someone told RPG stories and I watch a weekly twitch show where people play Battletech.

Never played it but from what I've heard it sounds like a good way to spend some time.

Yea absolutely, I am a writer part time along with my regular job so I'm always looking for something to help stretch the old imagination muscles and this is definitely something that does that.

If you need tips on creating a character, let me know, I have done some character creation videos on youtube as well as I'm running an game that my wife, some friends, and I are podcasting, so I've delved deep into the nerdiness of Dungeons and Dragons.

And to tom cody's comment, it's a great way to spend time. It's fun to escape for a little bit, most games tend to be fairly funny simply because of the human part of it and you get to play some cool stories and have some cool battles. We also have had so many just hilarious moments of role playing and conversation where a player says something completely absurd in character and now I as the dungeon master have to come up on the fly how the person they are talking to will respond.

I got started right when 3rd Edition was released and have played tons since then. 3rd Edition, 3.5, 4th, as well as FATE Core, Pathfinder, Robotech, Numenera, and The Strange. With a good group, tabletop gaming can be an amazingly fun hobby.

I play 5E. Started about 2 years ago.

Haven't played in a few months though, work has just been insane.

I wish I still played, always liked it. Played some 3.5 in college, some 4.0 after. Randomly bought the 5.0 PHB but never played it.

I am a Dungeon Master.

I Create Worlds.

My advice is play to have fun don't play to win, it is cool to have a charecter that has an obsession, or an exagerated personality.

Good characteristics would be loves gold, loves killing stuff in brutal fashions, racist against elves, or dwarves, or your charecter is a dwarf and wants to score with hot elf babes.

have cool/stupid backstory, like you were raised by two prostitutes, your Dad was an evil racist wizard hell bent on enslaving halflings, cos he hated midgets.
Or your wife was killed by the king, but you still kind of like the guy cos he has good fiscal policy for all.

I spent most of my RP life playing a DM/GM and I am very similar. Nothing makes my job more fun than players who craft intricate, unique, and creative backstories, traits, and especially flaws.

And I am not talking about that trope filled rogue who "grew up on the streets and had to steal to survive". I'm talking about a dwarf who's brother was killed in a mine cave-in and he has now developed a phobia of the underground. I'm talking about a rogue who once took an assassination side quest to kill a woman, did it in the dark and discovered he had murdered his own wife, and must now live with that guilt for his life. I'm talking about a half-orc bard with a passion for well composed music (this one was incredibly fun to work with). I'm talking about an alcoholic warrior who becomes physically abusive and violently drunk to ANYONE around him (this one seemed, while good and easy to work with became much more amazing when I learned WHY/HOW he became the person he was).

Anyone can make a PC. But can you make your own story? In many cases the more you come up with, and the more unique it is, the better a DM/GM can play and craft the overall story around your PC. I haven't played a lot of PCs, but when I have, I actually would write upward of two to three pages of backstory, traits, likes and dislikes, even details about close family (if any). When I have done this, I found the DM specifically picking bits of my details to help with story/plot hooks, creating more depth in game, etc. It only helps game when you take the time to really and truly flesh out your character.
