I would really like to get into a D&D 4.0 game. I would be willing to join a power leveling or a roleplaying group, but I prefer realism and challenge to weapons so powerful or groups so rich that the gameplay seems trivial. That being said, I don't want to die every gaming session. I'm fairly easy going, so I would rather find a group than be picky. I am willing to be the DM, but I have never done it. I will in this case be slow and need some mentoring, but I would be fair and consistent.
I haven't played many games in the past. In high school I played D&D 3.0 and 3.5, and I dabbled in Zombies, AD&D, D&D, and a few I can't remember. I would like to get into a once a weekend group either in my local area or over the internet.
