Topic: Returning to pnp after 25 years...umm help please
I foolishly said yes to my 16 year old when he asked if I would show him the game and play with him. Mostly I was just stoked my teenager wanted to voluntarily hang out with his mom (so uncool right)
I downloaded all the books, printed out character sheets and sat down to do what I had in the past done multiple times...we got as far as the ability scores and then got very overwhelmed. The game has so much more to it now, which is great
Unfortunately at the rate I am going reading the over 1000 pages of material, we might get to play by the time he finishes high school.
This weekend I really devoted a lot of time and research online and found a wealth of information but the 3 page character sheet and the creating the many other facets of my character seems to be alluding me. I tried to reach out to local gaming stores and was met with resistance. I can't just walk in on their Wednesday night campaign and ruin the chapter by asking 100 questions...it would have been nice to find a few other players so my son cab experience a proper game.
I have tons of material now, our character pieces, game board, DM screen, and the little plastic buckets and walls....we are all set, expect where do I begin? Please help me look cool in front of my son. You would think with almost 10 years experience I could at least create a character...thanks for your time and assistance.
