Got a question, I have been an avid rpger since I was 6, I am now 29. I cut my teeth on the old red book basic boxed set with the blue dice and white crayon.
Now, I have the PHB and DMG for 3.5, and a bunch of 3.0 books as well, and I want to start running a game, but I have only sat in on 2 very short lasting campaigns. I would play a bit more, but all of the d20 games at my school's gaming club are full, and I am on a waiting list. In the meantime, I would like to play, and there are no games being run on monday nights.
I didn't play much of 2nd ed, but played extensived in 1st ed AD&D.
So, how much of a learning curve do I have in regards to 1st to 3.0/3.5?
I have skimmed the books over and have noticed many differences, but alot of similarities, but not having DM'd in this new edition, I am a bit nervous about jumping in without getting a bit more practice as a player first.
So, some advice would be nice.
