    It is, but the familiarity is the issue. I really like 3.5e, so I'm not taking the shift to 4e well (where it's a whole new system D ; ). Then again, I've actually taken a look at 4e, and it's not terrible; so I think what I'm actually too lazy to do is to get all of the rulebooks (i.e. buying the core books and getting the other ones digitally).

    Wait I thought 4e was easier than 3.5? Then wouldn't it be less work to play that one? xD

    4e is sufficiently fun, though. It's just... different and I think part of my reluctance to play 4e is because I am a lazy, lazy person. : (

    Yeahh it's a nice idea to think that our club will be able to play 3.5e, but we have a lot of new people coming in all the time so I really doubt any of my friends are going to get that wish. xD;

    WoW isn't bad but I kind of like them separate. ; x

    Yeah, 3.5e is a bit difficult for new players to pick up. I played it for about three months, reading stuff on online message boards, before I got the nuances of character creation and what to do. 4e is just a sort of thing you can pick up and play because of its simplicity (which I personally don't like because it makes playing wizards and fighters nearly the same experience, but hey).

    Yeah, they all wanna play 4e just because the DMs say that it's hard to play 3.5 for any new players, lol. I like WoW though D:

    Ah, 4e. D&D purists (like myself) do not particularly like the game because it turns D&D into basically World of Warcraft. I highly recommend to start with either Pathfinder or 3.5; the former is more balanced, while the latter is more true to the original.

    But that aside, any form of D&D should be really fun. : V

    Pathfinder is what my friends wanted to play last year, but the guy that was going to run it for us got so busy that he had to even back out of playing with us, let alone running a campaign he was making himself. xD My college started an RPG club last year though and my friends and I are all in it so hopefully we'll be able to get into a DnD campaign or something...except none of my friends want to do 4.0 and that's like all that anyone is running. But tbh at this point I just want to try some kind of DnD since I haven't at all yet xD;

    Caaaaall of Cthuuuuuulhu~

    Yeah, it's pretty good. My playgroup mainly plays Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 and Pathfinder with a bit of Pokemon Tabletop Adventures on the side at the moment; we're very flexible about the games we play though, and we've played Call of Cthulhu in the past. We've recently begun to explore a bit of Scion and Anima: Beyond Fantasy.

    Tabletop?! All I've played so far is Call of Cthulhu and one session of Deathwatch but pen and paper RPGs are the beeeeest. Except my group of friends loves Call of Cthulhu so much that it's hard to convince them to play any other RPGs. xD
