I'd be interested in playing, but have no frame of reference as I've never played D&D, just my dad's old D6 Star Wars RPG and Paladium games that I grabbed after he died when I was a kid. Once the play starts I'd probably be okay with some help and pointers along the way, but setting up a character is beyond me as I have no idea what sorts of classes and what not are available beyond what I've seen in the free basic stuff that was posted.
I was thinking of a human female (yeah, lots of females here) ranger(?) lol anyhow I have a bit of a mental back story for her. basically daughter of an aristocrat who refused to conform, "she's a queer one" was a phrase most commonly used about her by the people in the community where she lived. She tended towards running the forests with the local hunters and trappers instead of doing her embroidery (though she can do that too), and wore *gasp* breeches instead of petticoats. Good with a sword, but better with a bow, she's a decent tracker and hunter.
Her father arranged for her to be married off to a drunken sot who'd already gone through three wives, and instead of becoming his fourth she slapped on her leathers, grabbed her bow and ran for her life. Eventually finding herself at the guild and still on the run.
Can anyone help me make this real so I can join too?
