I'll never ever understand those people and games. Ever.
Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

Yes and no. The game and most of the story is created, controlled and described by a Dungeon Master. They usually use premade quests of campaigns as a guide for everything. Within that framework everyone has their own characters that can do whatever they want. So yes you make a bunch of shit up, but as it is a board game, you get to fight a bunch of enemies and monsters to gain wealth and power!

I'm fairly new to the game. I've only been playing for about a month and half. The small group of friends that I currently play with have been playing off and on for years. Most of them started in middle school. Some of them had really unhealthy obsessions with the game in HS and practically lived the game 24/7. Its kinda sad, but I understand. Leaving the basement wasn't for everyone.

I LOVE D&D .... in videogames. Neverwinter Nights was fun as shit, for example, as were a number of early D&D knockoffs from the mid-90s.

I never, ever got the appeal of tabletop D&D though.

It depends on the group and the DM. If you get a real evil DM who consistantly tries to kill everyone it won't be much fun.

When you're with a group of people that has NO qualms admitting that they are all complete and utter losers, you completely disregard the fact that what you are doing is ridiculous.  You just have a good time, and it is good, harmless fun.

I got kicked out of game for being drunk once.  Not the most rowdy crowd.

I would like to add that my character is a 6'8" level 4 Paladin Half-Orc with a neon pink anklet from a defeated foe. All the other players say my character is gay because I used a human necklace as an anklet. I just say hes metro.

I was in a very low key crowd.  In high school, I almost stopped a game because I went out for a smoke and they didn't approve.  "Balor, we've discussed this before.  No smoking!"  

In college, alcohol was prohibited from DnD sessions (DM's rules.)

Back with another group back home, they had some Mike's Hard lemonade one night, so I brought beer and rum the next time.  I got shitfaced and booted from the game.  They told me to go watch TV while they continued.  

S'ok, I passed out in their bed.

Oh wait, I know this one, I already solved it... you learn to fly.
