- Never played before. Any halfway game is annoying the first few times as you learn The System and what is and isn't important, etc.
- Takes a lot of time to set up.
- I feel like a real dork saying things like "leathern helm" or "dwarf mage".
Which brings me to the nerdliness. Playing D&D. Around the dining room table. While eating pizza, hot dogs and nachos. At least none of us has a neckbeard or obesity problem. Although one of us runs Linux. Oh and Mom brought in a sugary snack, plus we had our first game-based injoke.
Anyway, he actually did really, really well at it. I mean, we're wandering around without a clue in a very haphazard dungeon and he's giving hints pretty often ("do you want to check behind you?")...but he has the right attitude. He's confidently telling us what's what and taking our unanticipated actions completely in stride. Kudos, proto-NERD!
