Hi Julia,

Is that the first thing that comes to mind? It sounds like your finished with something that's the whole game for you. From what I read here, beyond the colour/trimmings of the game, it's like chess or a seduku. So it'd be like being finished with chess or seduku, which doesn't sound right to me. How did you see it?

Yes, that's the first thing that comes to mind, but in reference to your comment, no, that's not what I meant at all. I don't feel "done" with D&D, and I'd totally play it again.

When I was in junior high and high school, I was really fascinated with D&D and wanted to play it, but never found anyone to play with, until last week at GenCon. I've been out of my teens for almost 18 years.

Hi Julia,

Ah yeah, I think I get you. It kind of completes a desire to explore the concept/that RPG. I'm not sure I've really completely tried out an RPG like you have here. Where you've sort of wrapped up a loose end/facination from teenagerdom then moved on to deciding an over all opinion - rather than never getting a complete experience of the game and just continuing on the initial passion to explore the thing fully.

Though I think that might be a feature for many - a friend of mine who'd stopped playing table top and just plays world of warcraft now, couldn't understand having goals for the game when I said I'd met mine in getting to level sixty in it (the old max level). Perhaps it can be considered a feature to never be able to form an over all opinion on the game. Heh, just meandering in my thoughts, it's a requirement for D&D threads don't you know! Wink

The funny thing is I played D&D red box at SteveCon two months ago. It was totally a nostalgia trip for me and pretty much the same experience as you had with your game.
