Yes, I am a "real girl", guys. We do exist :-p I'm newish to the gaming world. I started out with D&D 3.5 and also played Pathfinder. The group I played with created their own worlds and story lines and XP charts but used the books for character levels/races/skills/etc. I used to game 2 or 3 times each month but haven't played in a couple years.
