New DDC:er here. I've had the PDF for a long time, but it wasn't until I bought the book a few days ago that I really got the game! It has been on my bucket list for long but I've hesitated due to already owning far too many versions of D&D and because I'm not sure that some of my players will appreciate the delicate workings and mindset of DCC.
Screw that. They're getting funnelled
Like most people here I'm a "geezer". Started playing b/x in 1981-82 and went on to AD&D after about a year as I recall. When 2e came out in 1989 we abandoned D&D for other games like Call of Cthulhu, CyberPunk 2013, Traveller, GURPS etc. Then we had a 17 year RPG hiatus due to studies, careers, girlfriends/wives, kids, houses. All that adult stuff. You know what I'm talking about, I'm sure.
However, I kept on reading about games and even bought the occasional gaming book. Around my divorce in 2008 my interest in RPGs increased (therapy?) and I started lobbying with my old crew to start gaming again. Funny thing is, that when I mentioned D&D, they finally said yes. And after one session they were hooked
Since 2011 we play regularly and have introduced new blood into our ranks (wives, kids and new people). Aside from that I play in a weekly 5e hangouts game and will try some PbP also.
Most of the time I'm behind the GM screen, but I get to play also. My RPG interest has branched out to running an RPG blog as well as writhing some adventure modules for Blood & Treasure and Swords & Wizardry, and at the moment I'm working on a thing for Fantastic Heroes & Witchery.
I live in the South of Sweden and are now married to the sweetest woman (who's also into games, fantasy and horror). We have 2 kids (every other week) and a small but vicious dog.
Anyway, I'm glad to be here and hope to have many fun moments with DCC.
