newbie to RPG

I've only recently gotten into RPG so my answers will reflect my late start.



1. lots of mountain dew (nope...a glass of sweet tea)
2. loads of funyuns (Aren't they extinct??)
3. black light (not lately, usually just the light of the tv in the backgorund)
4. something to get high with (not for a long time)
5. we're all still virgins (gotta go with "no" on this one)
6. Computer geek? (not really)
7. Dorky-(of course not!)
8. Pastey (I prefer "porcelain-like skin"))
9. Pimple Popper- (Only my own)
10. Avid reader of Sci Fi and Fantasy novels and thinks JRR Tolkin was a God (yes to SCI-FI and no to Tolkin)
11. Pocket protectors (no)
12. Glasses (yes, but only for reading)
13. Mounds of comic books (none)
14. Thinks D&D the movie was good (Never saw it)
15. doesn't need caffine to have a 48 game fest non stop (I can't even get through an episode of Dr. Who without falling alseep)
16. knows the complete history of more than 10 items in any RPG (No and why on earth would I want to?)
17. Knows complete history of at least 3 comic book heroes (nope)
18.doesn't have posters of babes/hunks on his/her walls, instead has dragons, knights and other fantasy types (I have a collection of LA Williams fantasy art on my walls. Inaddition
19. swords on walls while playing but by end of game everyone has one in hand. (yes, I have a suit of armor and A Richard The Lionheart Sword and an Excalibur sword. I also have two rapiers that belonged to my father in law.
20. went to a renn. fair and got most dwarf like person there( go to Renn Faires at least once a year)
21. started playing at age 7 and has yet to stop. (started playing 6 months ago and stop to go to the bathroom, eat, sleep, shop, watch tv, play with cats etc.)
22. has spent more on books in a given year then on a car(uh NO)
23. keeps spare copies of their D&D books in trunk just in case they need them.(spare copies??)
24. has played D&D in a woods on a scary with thunder and lightning, etc. night and was only afraid the DM might use this as a chance to kill off their character ( can't say that I have)
25. same as 24 but in real haunted house. (this one either)

More...

1. lots of mountain dew (No... Didn't start gaming until well after I outgrew MD)
2. loads of funyuns (Can't stand them.)
3. black light (no)
4. something to get high with (No)
5. we're all still virgins (Possible for all I know... I don't ask all the people I game with.)
6. Computer geek? (low-level. More an enthusiast than an expert)
7. Dorky-(Yeah)
8. Pastey (Only in the winter... I can tan when there's sun)
9. Pimple Popper- (Alas, I still fit the acne stereotype.)
10. Avid reader of Sci Fi and Fantasy novels and thinks JRR Tolkin was a God (Yes, but Tolkein was only a Valar)
11. Pocket protectors (no)
12. Glasses (Contacts. Again, moved past that stereotype before I became a gamer)
13. Mounds of comic books (No, though I read them occasionally)
14. Thinks D&D the movie was good (It was wretched. The Dragons were the only watchable parts.)

16. knows the complete history of more than 10 items in any RPG (No)
17. Knows complete history of at least 3 comic book heroes (No)
18.doesn't have posters of babes/hunks on his/her walls, instead has dragons, knights and other fantasy types (Two dragon posters, a wolf, and one texty poster that's always amused me)
19. swords on walls while playing but by end of game everyone has one in hand. (No, I store mine a bit more safely and no one touches them. We have used my quarterstaff, though)
20. went to a renn. fair (Once. It was fun.)
21. started playing at age 7 and has yet to stop. (18, actually, as a college freshman)
22. has spent more on books in a given year then on a car(Don't own a car, never have. So yes, on a technicality)
23. keeps spare copies of their D&D books in trunk just in case they need them.(Keeps spare copies on my hard drive, with the really essential files on my jump drive too)
24. has played D&D in a woods on a scary with thunder and lightning, etc. night and was only afraid the DM might use this as a chance to kill off their character (No)
25. same as 24 but in real haunted house. (No)
26. Been persecuted by jock or other stereotypically anti-nerd group. (Once this drunken football player mooned my gaming group in a public lounge. Other than that, nothing.)

Hmm, let's see

1. lots of mountain dew (Nope, can't say I've ever drunk the stuff. I kind of prefer beer anyhow )
2. loads of funyuns (No idea what they are)
3. black light (Nope)
4. something to get high with (Ermm, occasionally )
5. we're all still virgins (Can't say that I am, but it's not very ladylike to ask everyone else really...some weird guys may take it as some sort of come on)
6. Computer geek? (I can barely switch mine on)
7. Dorky-(Perhaps a little)
8. Pastey (I have a permanent tan, so nope)
9. Pimple Popper- (Thankfully not )
10. Avid reader of Sci Fi and Fantasy novels and thinks JRR Tolkin was a God (Only Sci Fi I tend to read now is Prattchet)
11. Pocket protectors (No)
12. Glasses (Yep)
13. Mounds of comic books (I steal my brother's when I want to read them)
14. Thinks D&D the movie was good (Nah, it was only good as a Python-esque comedy, but I get the impression that the guys making it weren't going for that look really)
15. doesn't need caffine to have a 48 game fest non stop (Nope, I need caffeine and lots of it)
16. knows the complete history of more than 10 items in any RPG (Erm, I may do)
17. Knows complete history of at least 3 comic book heroes (Bah, caught me out again)
18.doesn't have posters of babes/hunks on his/her walls, instead has dragons, knights and other fantasy types (I have one knightly figure on my wall)
19. swords on walls while playing but by end of game everyone has one in hand. (Nope, no weapons here)
20. went to a renn. fair (Nah, not my thing)
21. started playing at age 7 and has yet to stop. (15 when I started, and that was when I bugged my brother to let me play )
22. has spent more on books in a given year then on a car (Maybe before I owned a car I did)
23. keeps spare copies of their D&D books in trunk just in case they need them.(Hehe, yes I do!)
24. has played D&D in a woods on a scary with thunder and lightning, etc. night and was only afraid the DM might use this as a chance to kill off their character (I did play DnD in a park, in the dark and with lots of rain, does that count?)
25. same as 24 but in real haunted house. (Not unless you consider my house haunted...come to think of it...)
26. Been persecuted by jock or other stereotypically anti-nerd group. (Can't say that I have)

Oh and there should be: 27. Thinks Sarah Michelle Geller and/or David Boreanaz is the perfect example of feminity/masculinity. (I love Angel... )

14. Thinks D&D the movie was good (Nope)

Here we go...

1. lots of mountain dew (No, coffee.)

4. something to get high with (Never while gaming.)
5. we're all still virgins (Coming up on a 5-year anniversary, if I was, we'd have a serious problem...)
6. Computer geek? (I do tech-support for a living.)
7. Dorky-(Certainly not.)
8. Pastey (Exotically pale, thank you)
9. Pimple Popper- (Not anymore - thank you Clinique!).

18. doesn't have posters of babes/hunks on his/her walls, instead has dragons, knights and other fantasy types (Actually, I tend to have paintings.)
19. swords on walls while playing but by end of game everyone has one in hand. (The swords will stay above the mantel piece. This is not negotiable)
20. went to a renn. fair and got most dwarf like person there (At 5'9"? Not likely.)
21. started playing at age 7 and has yet to stop. (More like 14.)
22. has spent more on books in a given year then on a car (Not really, no.)
23. keeps spare copies of their D&D books in trunk just in case they need them. (AD&D? When there is Ars Magica!)
