waxunpleasant said: John, do you play d&d? what's your favourite class?
I played one session in junior high and was immediately killed by a ghost. The DM told me “you can’t fight this ghost, your HP are too low” but I didn’t really get the game at all and felt, philosophically, that every dog must have his day and anyone in battle stands your classic fighting chance. This was not the case and I was immediately killed by a ghost. I don’t hold it against the ghost he was just doing his thing.
I did start playing games when I was revising Wolf and now I have a weekly gaming night and we just played through a D&D dungeon I’m a Druid. I don’t have a “favorite class” though, it’s fantasy, part of the pleasure is trying on different skins to see how they feel — that’s really the point, right? If I play the same class all the time, then I’m really not exploring in the way I’d like to. That said, any character I play is probably going to express an interest in religion and magic, because, you know, me.
