Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Sometime in the next couple of weeks I'm going to be playing DnD for the first time. My girlfriend is going to be running the game and she said we're going to probably be using edition 3.5. I was hoping that I would be able to get some advice for a starting player, this is my first time with any tabletop role-playing game.
The thing I probably need help with most is character creation. Right now I'm leaning towards the Cleric class. The problem with that is that I've read I need to be aligned with a deity for that class, but I haven't been able to find comprehensive lists of the deities.
It might be looking a bit far ahead, but any general tips for preforming in the DM role would also be appreciated. For the first game or two my girlfriend will be the DM because she's done that before, but she wants to be able to play in games too, so I think that we'll rotate leadership.
