I guess you could say I am a little different of a player. I don't like the campaigns were you have a +4 weapon by the time you hit 5th level. I would much rather prefer the campaigns were you are level 5 and you just find your first +1 weapon. It makes you value everything you get instead of just having magic items thrown at you. I also like tough play. I like making it out of every fight by the skin of your teeth. Where the mages are out of spells, and cleric is out of spells, and the fighters are half dead. The more a character goes through the more you will value it's life.
I'm a big 2nd Edition fan. I collect AD&D modules as well and would be interested in playing them some day. My heart really lies in Dragonlance tho. I'm a big reader of the novels so I know quite a bit about the realm. I have played 3.5 and as far as it goes it's alright, just not my fave. Not a real big fan of 4th Edition goes. I don't like the way it is so similar to an MMO. If I wanted to play an MMO, I'd play WoW, for everything else, there's D&D.
