I am a relatively experienced player- not quite a beginner, not exactly advanced. I have a pretty good understanding of game mechanics. I've been a player in multiple games, both face to face and online, and have DMed a good deal of campaigns (about 75% online, 25% in person).
I like a 50-50 RP/Combat mix, but I love RP-heavy campaigns. In a nutshell, I like: RP-heavy, high-magic, mid-power, high-fantasy campaigns, and a good dose of humor is preferable (and lack of humor is a 'no'). When I'm a player, I prefer a DM a little loose on the rules but not too much so. As a DM, I tend to be rather easy-going and lax as long as you can justify what you're doing.
As for game worlds, I'm not interested in Ebberon games and as a general rule, and I tend to dislike Underdark campaigns unless I have a DM that doesn't base every Drow city off Menzoberranzan and every house matron after Malice. I'm interested in a weekly game with a little bit of scheduling flexibility. I can't go much farther than Chantilly or Reston to join a game as it stands.
I am only interesting in joining a face-to-face group at the moment.
On a side note and I apologize if I come off as sounding weird, but I work better with guys (I'm female and all my good friends are male). I wouldn't mind at all being the only girl.
A bit of general info: I'm currently in trade school to become a massage therapist. I also cook, and I'd be more than willing to feed any group I join. I tend to be considered a motherly figure by my friends.
On DnD: I've tried to join face-to-face groups not DMed by me twice, and both times they fell apart due to player or scheduling conflicts. However, I've played in numerous online games; I'm experienced in handling them both as a DM and a player, so if you need advice, I'm willing to give it. I have nice little collection of supplement (a mix of 3.0 and 3.5) books I'm willing to let a group use, and a massive e-book collection. During the summer, I play DnD almost every week. Otherwise, I play either every other week or about once a month.
