When you can’t decide which game to pick up again…. truly life struggling. Alien Isolation ( maybe even stream it so ya’ll can hear me scream and shite my pants) go and clean up things in Uncharted or FFXV ( but kinda waiting for the update)
im so hyped tho…ive had my standard 3DS XL since like….2012? and its worked so well for me, but its beginning to crash sometimes, randomly. also, its still the old version, and theres some games i want from the eshop that are only on the New 3ds/2ds so the moment the new 2DS XL was announced i was like “omg i need one” and oh my god just LOOK at the design of the one im getting:
That’s awesome! There’s a bunch of ways to start, tbh, and it all depends on whether you prefer to play irl or online through virtual tabletops.
If you want to play IRL, you should try and print out a copy of the Basic Rules pdf that’s available for free online, or you could probably find a copy of the player’s handbook for $30 on amazon.
The hardest part about playing irl is finding a group. If you think you can convince your friends to play with you, then get a group together of between 4 and 6 players (1 DM and 3-5 player characters) and just try and play! That’s honestly the best way to learn, is to just sit down and try. If you have no idea at all how the game is played, then I’d recommend watching a little bit of one of the many podcasts dedicated to D&D to get a feel for how the game works (I’d probably recommend Critical Roll, and you dont need to watch a full 4 hour episode to get a grip on how the game is played).
There’s also a ton of published adventures for new DMs to run that make running the game pretty simple, and they’re also a lot of fun!
If you can’t find friends to play with, however, you can definitely check out your local game/hobby store too! There’s an official D&D Adventurer’s League which is designed for new players, but not all game stores participate in that. A lot of them *do* have people coming in and playing by themselves though, and you can have the game store ask if there’s room for one more player in the campaign.
Honestly? Just ask around! It might take a little while, but you can almost always find someone who’s playing :)
If you’re more interesting in playing online though, then I highly recommend roll20.net. It’s a good virtual tabletop and it lets you search for games hat have open availability!
There are also a ton of communities for the express purpose of helping players find games, and I know that theres even an rpgideas blog that has a sideblog dedicated to that purpose.
I hope that helps?? If you have any more questions definitely feel free to ask, and if anyone has any ideas that I missed please go ahead and add it to this post :)
A kid I met before invited me in a group, told me nothing, and just put us in that custom game. I never laughed that much in my life, especially: -All the fast tap tap from hanzo’s feet -How you go flying just by climbing stuff -Ryu ga-Ryu ga wag- Ryu ga w- -One of them is called Kaplan
Special mention to those two Hanzo flying that made me lost my shit:
