I have played tons of RPGs but never actually played P&P. I have a decent understanding of the D20 system, and D&D 3.5 rules. Which is why Pathfinder looks most interesting to me. I am willing to play any game though as long as the group is willing to deal with a newer player.
I am a new player to Pen and Paper RPGs. But have lots of experience with RPGs in general, and know the basics of the D20 system. I usually prefer playing a caster or utility class over a tank, but I am not too picky.
I currently am living in Japan, and am only available in the mornings and afternoons. I don't think that should be a big problem since morning in Japan, is evening in the USA.
