Hello, guys (and gals)!

My name is Sanguinous Rex, and I am the Dread Lord (my RP title) of an online MMORPG gaming community known as Pax Gaming (www.paxgaming.com). I have been a huge fan of tabletop RPG's since I was a kid - my first experience was GMing a crazy little game called Paranoia in 6th grade! I always found myself on the "DM/GM" stick throughout most of my gaming life all the way through high school. After high school I stopped playing, partially because I was both tired of finding gamers to play and also having to run the damn things lol

I missed out on gaming for over a decade (with the exception of a single AD&D 3rd Edition game that ran out of steam fast after one of the players had a major blowout) until last year when I met some new friends through an old friend and experienced AD&D 4th Edition for the first time. As a system it's far from perfect but it was a lot of fun - especially since I was finally a PLAYER! I created an awesome character and we played a steady game once a week.

Even though I had thought that I would remain happy in player-bliss, my "creative juices" began to flow again and I started world building. I didn't have a desire to play 4th Edition because I am less technical and more "RP" oriented and I knew I would get lost in the tactical wargame that is 4th Edition combat. But I found out about 5th Edition and got very excited. I continued to work on my world and decided that 5th Edition would be my stomping grounds.

However, several people in my online gaming community shared my interest in tabletop roleplaying games and after discovering the Obsidian Portal I decided it was time to finally start. With 5th Edition still a year away, I decided to go OLD SCHOOL. The campaign is being run under AD&D 1st Edition, with a modified skill system designed by me. What an awesome system and so much easier then 4th Edition ;)

So the campaign might continue under 1st edition indefinitely OR once 5th Edition gets released we will be switching to that. Not sure yet.

Anyway, just saying heya from one tabletop gamer to another! Oh, and is anyone else excited/interested in D&D Next (5th Edition)?

    Welcome Sanguinous Rex! Lots of friendly people here- if you have any questions, just ask!
    Hoping they get 5th edition right, but not a D&D fan in general- but know a healthy D&D is good for the industry.

    Hi Sanguinous Rex

    Welcome to the Portal and nice introduction, by the way. I hope you find the Portal as useful as I have and that your renewed enthusiasm for world building blossoms in this very fertile garden.

    Personally, I have moved with the D&D editions until 3.5 but I will be having a keen look at what they come up with in D&DNext.

    Hey Sanguinous Rex,

    Welcome to OP. You'll find tons of help and support here, dead gods knows I have. I'm in the process of heavy modding the 4e gameplay myself, and am totally dreading D&DNext. I know I'll love it, but I tend to get bogged down with rules and such. I'm nothing if not a leech though, so even if it sucks eggs I'm bound to take a rule here or there.

    On a side note I tend to be a "As-far-out-of-the-box-as-possible" DM when it comes to unique scenarios, and always love discussing new ideas. If you ever need something weird, obscure, outlandish, etc. send me a message and I'll see what I can do to help.
