I started with AD&D and by the time 2nd Edition was being released I had moved on to other systems. Thankfully I was out of the tabletop RPG business through 3.5 & 4, but when 5e dropped and a mutual friend introduced me to my current DM I jumped at the chance. I really like the 5e ruleset, and they're constantly pumping out interesting new content. It makes me happier than ever that I dodged the 4e bullet.

Yeah, here's a hint: DON'T. Just don't play 4th edition. It usually took about 15 or 20 minutes for one turn of combat, maybe an hour for a full round. There were *way* to many rules to keep up with, which is why I like 5e a heck of a lot more. It allows one to concentrate on the roleplay, not the combat.

Yeah, most of us into RPG's hopped over to Pathfinder during the 4E era anyways. I still like PF quite a bit, but it is time consuming to prep. Had to put the game I was running on the shelf, at least for now.

I've nothing against 5E, but I love exploring liter rules systems, like Cypher, and even Old School Renaissance (OSR) stuff like Labyrinth Lord, White Star, Hero's Journey, and Shotguns & Saddles.
