Halloo! Just checking in here from the Pacific Northwest, USA. I've been RPGing since the days of the three little booklets (mid-1970s, I'm that old, ha!), but most of that time in other games than official D&D. GMing for much of that time, in more different systems than I can easily remember. Currently taking it easy on GMing; I'm in a great group where we rotate duties, so I've been playing a lot more than running lately.
My most recent GMing stints have been Feng Shui and D&D4. Long-time history buff, retired after 35 years of a union job, now playing househusband and stacking up a few more minis to paint "someday" ;)

Hey everyone!

I'm Michael from San Antonio, Texas. I've never played D&D, but I bought the starter set in March to see if my kids would like it during COVID (four of them, ages 8 to 15). I'm a pretty avid board gamer, and am usually the one who reads the rules and explains a game to newcomers, so I'm the DM. It's been fun, and I've added a few homebrew side quests to Lost Mine of Phandelver. I love D&D now, and I think it will be something my kids remember playing with me when they get old. :)

I also like playing Gloomhaven, Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico, Dominion, Through the Ages, and other board games with lots of pieces.

My favorite die is the d4, but only if the number rolled is up top. (Some versions have the number rolled on the base of the triangle side.)
Happy Birthday, Michael! I hope you have a wonderful day.
How is GMing working out with you lately? Are your kids still interested? (moods can be fickle in that age)
