Hello Red Dragon Inn. My name is Michael, AKA Archangel. I have been lurking about for a couple weeks now reading and seeing the games going on here and thought I would finally register and make my presence known.
I am an old RPer from way back in the Original D&D days when I was a little tike of 10 y/o, I graduated to Basic and then on to the Best version ever, 2nd Edition AD&D. I have dabbled with the latter versions but have found them to lack some of the true Role-play feeling of the 2nd Edition.
Anyway, I have been away from playing for a few years, my latest group of players, and there have been many through the years, has gone their separate ways with Real Life intruding upon their gaming time. So I have been seeking a place where maybe I can RP and get back that old feeling I got from RPing once again.
I have tried a few other sites, most I have found to be a bit too strict on silly rules, like having a character approved by the head of the forum before you can even post anything? Well, like I said I have been lurking about and reading for a few weeks here and like what I see. RDI seems more laid back and more about RPing and having fun than rules which are only meant to “allow only the best RPers to play” as one forum’s webmaster said to me; like they are best judge of who is the best RPers.
Therefore I wish to declare that I am here to seek out a game, preferably a 2nd Edition AD&D, but I am open to others though I may not be familiar with the system or have the required books, etc. I have played many other systems throughout the years, i.e. Gamma World, Travellers, Battletech, Champions, Gangbusters, Shadowrun, Serenity, etc. Too many to name them all, frankly I would be hard pressed to remember all that I have played.
So I will be lurking about and keeping an eye on the recruitment section in search of a game. Keep up the great RPing, it gives me something to read.

Welcome to the Inn! I'm another well documented believer in 2E.
Welcome Archangel! As said above, nice to find old school D & D folks. In fact, a group of us are just cranking up a 2ed game; the thread is called "A Single Stone..." and the GM is Tek. Check out what we've posted so far, along with the Q & A thread. If you want to join, I'd bet Tek would be happy to have you if you want to send him a private message.
Though I seem to be a mite late, I can't miss a new arrival or a greeting! It's so good to see a fresh face in the party. I wish you a great stay here in the inn below the tavern and great gaming overall; perhaps we shall see each other soon.
