If anyone doesn't mind I'm going to post this here and share a bit of a story with y'all, as i tend to do with these kinds of things.(Well, you really don't have a say in this, i mean it's my account and all.)
Anyway, I recently discovered (about a year ago now) a wonderful show on geek and sundry called Critical Role. And Critical Role, for anyone who doesn't know the show, is a series in Geek and Sundry where famous Voice Actors from Games and Anime play a role playing game called Dungeons and Dragons. This show that was apparently the most popular show in Geek and Sundry and it had more than 100 episodes and it was about D&D. Now, I didn't really know much about D&D but I've already heard about this game through various American Tv shows and movies (i.e. Stranger Things) but I didn't really understand what the hell it was other than it was a tabletop game that involved monsters and species similar to the Lord of the Rings. At first I just stared at the playlist and said in my head "like who the hell has time for this? It's 4 hrs long per episode and it had over 100+ episodes? And what the hells so fun about D&D anyway? Nah. I think I'm good." and I moved on and kept listening/ watching Let's plays, Con Interviews and TedTalks on YouTube and Podcasts on Nerdist while I work on stuff. Then one day I had run out of things to listen/watch to (Didn't know it was possible) then I recalled the memory of finding this show about D&D and decided "maybe I should watch one of these episodes (Critical Role episodes), I mean it has Laura Bailey, and Mathew Mercer in it (which I knew from Persona and Catherine and etc.). And Orion and Sam (from ace attorney and persona). At first, I didn't really paid any mind to it other than just a background noise while I work on stuff, and then it got me intrigued on how wacky and serious it can get, sometimes it can be about random shenanigans, other times it was about adventure and a fierce strategy based combat between a talking arrogant Dragon and a bunch of underdark beings or about defeating a door. I ended up really enjoying the show for over a year now, to the point that i wanted to play in a game session of D&D myself. So i just started to make possible characters and character background in my head. And then someone posted about Roll20, an online platform for D&D, (which I didn't know existed) and asked who has an account on Roll20...or something like that, then i decided to brows the comments and found someone offering to DM a game, of course I jumped immediately( even though I consider myself an introvert and anti social who can't peak proper English OR my NATIVE tongue) and said "I want to join please!", he accepted and they helped me create my character and help me understand the mechanics of the game. And despite the differences and difficulties I had playing the game, and constant internet problems, they still welcomed me and guided me, and now we're on our 4th or 5th session.
Which brings us to THIS guy. He's name is Elhand(randomly generated) Novus Ludio(Latin translated from Google which means "New Player"...I think) and he is a Halfling Rogue that I play in the campaign I'm a part of. He's background story is inspired by Kino's Journey and he also has a kinda androgynous look about him (also like Kino) and he is a conniving, annoying coward who only cares about himself, basically he's a piece of shit (unlike Kino). And he also has a mask that looks q lot like Emil's face(because I love Emil from Nier) in a oni demon's head.
As you can tell I'm really enjoying myself in fact I am enjoying the game so much and the character creation process that I have already prep-ed another character in case Elhnad dies because of my stupidity.
If you haven't played D&D or know D&D i highly suggest you consider checking out Critical Role and see how fun D&D can be because it really is fun pretending and using your imagination to RP the character YOU created and adventure in a magnificent fantasy world. It's a great distraction for life problems and a great platform to make new friends or bond with your old ones.
I really do owe our DM a TON of gratitude for not only spending his free time creating the world that our camapaign is in but also for letting me experience my first game and just for letting me join the campaign in general, and thanks to the players as well for being so friendly and awesome human beings.
