It got so serious one time that when we entered town after me and another towed some anvils there (The others were dying of some disease and they had to ride on the anvils, lazy saps), I went looking for some bitches and booze and got two others to join me, with the responsible one going to our captain and boss.

Otherwise, very serious. Probably. You should definitely bring your own dice and if you get a good group, it's some wicked fun.

Yeah, the group is important. It has it's own dynamic, depending on whose all in it and what they're like, but if you can get a good/great dynamic, shit's great.

Got probably my last D&D game this summer tonight. Wedding and relatives are going to be taking up my time so I probably won't be able to play with my group again. I don't know if I'm going to continue playing D&D in University, but I think I'll take the books with me regardless.

By pure coincidence, D&D came up in idle conversation when I was talking to my frennz last night. (Yes. Frennz. It is spelled so wrong that people cant get mad at me. its like "Oh dont get mad at him hes obviously retarded. look at his waterwings."and no spellcheck wont help because FUCK SPELLCHECK.) We figured out that my freind "President Limes" really wanted to get some D&D Action as did some of my other frennz. All we need is a DM and were good. "But that means wed have to... socialize out of our circle."
"Oh yeah.... eeeeeeeeewwww..."

You can always learn. DMing isn't that hard to learn if you really try. You just have to read the core books a lot, and have a fair grasp of the game and it's material. If you're just starting, then you're obviously sticking to at least the 3 core books: DM's Guide, Players Guide and Monster Manual, and you really only need to know the first two.

There are tonnes of articles online about DMing if you or one of your friends is interested in it.

I wanna get into PnP, but it just looks really focus-based and serious business.

It's as serious as you make it. My character in one Shadowrun game was hungry, so he went duck hunting in the local park. With a spear. And tried to steal an old lady's dog so he could have that for dinner too. Oh, and the shaman said that ducks are immune to magic which was why he couldn't help. So you've got a massive troll flailing around with a pointy stick in a duckpond, and everyone else watching and laughing. That was a very silly night.

Or, in the same campaign, the troll decker who doesn't know how to use a computer. So he pays informants for the info he needs, and pretends he needs the money to pay them for new programmes. When that fails, he does decking by beating people's faces in with his computer.

Yes, that was a very silly game.

Could we go on raptor president hunting quests in DnD?

Also everything is pretty much all set, just we need a proper DM. this game isnt just something "you can just get into" you NEED veterans.

It's certainly easier to have a veteran to guide a new group though, especially a new DM. If you end up DMing, just try to keep in mind that your players are probably only thinking of things from their own characters points of view, and probably won't notice any minor inconsistencies that you might have when you're trying to control everything.

If Im DMing Ill want the story to make as little sense as possible and to have zero continuity. People would just take everything in the moment and hold on to what they must.

"I throw my sword at it"
*I roll dice*
"your sword is now a fish. You throw it, and it transforms while in mid-flight. the hobgoblin catches it and eats it. the fish was rotten. The Hobgoblin dies."

Super random is still entertaining, I might just suggest to be selective with what you make super random, if you cock-block your players too much they'll feel like they really aren't contributing and get bored.

In all honesty, I think random is so fucking awful. I've played with DMs who thought they were being really funny with their game and everyone just kept going "Ugh."

Actually, I'm like that with everything that people do so they can be "Lolsorandom". That shit is fucking annoying.

Let them do that then.

Then, the next game, "You wake up, your heads splitting. Ugh, you feel like shit. And... you're chained to a wall. In a cell. Fuck, those were some powerful hallucinogens you guys ate. Now you've sobered up, the city watch wants you to face trial."
