I just got into D&D and basically have no practical experience with pen and paper games, thusly i want to be able to play offline and actually pick it up. I've always been attracted to high magic settings (I became aware of D&D through NWN 1 and 2). I honestly dont know what anyone looks for in a player so consider me tabula rasa.
I'm a science major at Seattle U and ive become bored with video games, i figured going to pen and paper might be fun. I guess you could consider me a noob, but ive always hated that term.
