Once there was a fair search engine named Alta
Vista. I was searching for a roleplaying game...wait, first I should tell
you how I learned of a roleplaying game. I lived in Maryland and I was
over at my friend Ryan's who lives in the same neighborhood as I do.
I noticed in his big brother Jamie's room that it was decorated with dragon
and wizard posters, figurines, etc. Another thing I spotted on the floor...
a big box that said "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons" on it and I asked what it was.
Jamie said it was a roleplaying game. So of course I ask, "What's a roleplaying
game?" and he tried to explain it to me but I didn't quite understand,
but one thing I understood was, it uses your imagination. I went berserk
after he said that. At school I always dreamed of being a brave knight and
go on advenrturous quests; basically, I am full of imagination. I loved the fantasy
setting and I have many of J.R.R. Tolkeins books. I asked if we could play it, but,
since I was allot younger, he assumed it would be too complicated for me so he simply
said "Its too advanced." Of course I was disappointed but it wasnt going to end there.
I was hooked. So I went to this way cool hobby shop and asked for a roleplaying game.
There was a humongous isle on them. I was trying to decide which one I should buy.
Well, I looked around a little and saw one entitled "Robotech." So I decided
to try it out. I bought it, took it home, then realized its bulk size. But at that
point it didnt seem to matter to me. I sat reading it for a few hours
and realized I didnt understand a word it meant. So I was extremely
sorrowful and sad. I complained to my mom a million times but she said there wasnt
anything she could do about it. So now I was in search of a more simplistic
roleplaying game. I searched day and night, night and day. Found nothing.
Then I searched on the internet on a search engine entitled Alta Vista
and searched for "Easy To Learn Roleplaying Games." Of course it just
gave me all these normal RPG pages but I found one called "Tunnels & Trolls."
It led me to the company (Flying Buffalo)'s homepage and I tried out the solo adventure.
This was awesome! I thought. I actually understand this. So I persuaded my mom into getting
me it and here I am now! (Oh, and I have to mention I also got Advanced Dungeons & Dragons).
So thats my up-to-date story and I think Im gonna stick with it my whole life!
