As a player, I'm looking for a good DM and group with a decent balance of Role Playing and Combat. I'm personally a big fan of the Forgotten Realms setting, as I grew up reading every R.A. Salvatore book I could get my hands on.
I started playing D&D back when I was around 12 years old. Unfortunately, it was short-lived, and I didn't get another chance to play again until I turned 15 years old, where I had an opportunity to get into a great 3E D&D group. Bad luck struck again, and my gaming days ended much too early.
It wasn't until very late in 2008 that my friends brought up the release of 4E. Since February of 2009, we've been playing once a week every Saturday, occasionally having our hiccups and skipping a week.
We also played World of Darkness once, just to test it out. We also tried out the Serenity RPG for a good two months, we alternated between D&D and Serenity.
