Your first contact with RPG's
What I want to know from you is how you got into RPG's (the year, age at the time, which system,...)
Here's my account of my first RPG-encounter
Back in 1992 when I was but 9 years old (has it been that long already
) my brother and I saved enough money to buy a Sega Master System.
We didn't had the cash at the time for new games so we rented(spelling?) them. After a few months I came across a game with a cool dragon on the front( Dragon Crystal for those who remember
?) and took it home with me. I really liked ?the game and when it was time to return it I looked at the box one more time and saw the magical words: Adventure Role-Playing Game ?
The next vacation I looked for another game with these words and my eyes fell on Phantasy Star, played it and from that day forward I'd never looked back.
What was your first experience with RPG's?
