Hi, new to Obsidian

edited February 2016 in Player Lounge
Hi, my name is Jess and I'm a big fan of D&D.
I've been playing for about two years both D&D E2 and E5.
I have tried a few other RPG's but D&D has my heart.
I would consider myself a novice still, but definitely starting to get to know my way around it.
I play in one game that meets approx. monthly and would be keen to have a second game either fortnightly or monthly.
Anyway, that's it from me :-)

    I must ask...

    Is it "just" Jess, as in a single name, like Cher or Prince?

    Or is it "Just" Jess, as in exhibiting the qualities of the cardinal virtue known as Justice; wielding sword and scale from behind the blindfold of impartiality; that consists in upholding the Right against the Wrong; that the Dead cannot cry out for so the Living must do so for them; that always seems impossible until it is done; and that is the conscience of the whole of Humanity?

    ...both are cool though.

    Maybe it's her first name Basileus, Like Justine Jessica and she goes by Just Jess.

    Nah, that would be ridiculous.

    Maybe she used to be a Siamese twin, and the other twin got detached so now, she's just Jess.

    Aww, that's strangely melancholy.

    Unless maybe she absorbed/devoured her twin in the womb to gain her powers... human chimera-style. Then its villainous!

    Welcome to the site Jess.

    As others have said, take a look around, join in some of the fun on the forums here. Feel free to ask questions, take a look at some of the awesome campaign sites people have going and maybe favorite a few.

    D&D is, while not my primary go to game anymore, still a ton of fun and how I came into gaming in the first place

    Again, welcome to the Madness :)
