I live in Tacoma Washington and started playing with the D&D Basic Set in 1982 in 7th grade.

My first character was a ranger and I remember being super disappointed at first because my PC didn't use a machine gun (I had yet to read LOTR).
That’s funny. I remember a poster in our high school library, This Man is a Ranger. It depicted an Army Ranger, of course. But I recall seeing it and wondering what was the connection to Aragorn? I didn’t get it. Worlds collide.

Damn, by '81 I had been playing for 6 years (and I only started when I got to college in '75), you can do the math. Still have my old 3 volume white box set as well. So I guess that makes me even older...but still very happily playing with my toys...
You got me beat gramps!

Well if you've been playing since you were 81, I'd say you might be old.
To state the obvious: 1981, less than halfway to being 81 though :P.

Currently about three hours from Lake Geneva (by bike) just over the line into Illinois.

Began playing with a friend's blue box. My first character was actually an entire party (there were two of us - he was the GM and I played all six adventurers). The only one I can remember anything about was that I misheard "cleric" and so I named that character "Radar." As for the year? '78? '79? Before 1980. In any case, I remember picking up a copy of the Monster Manual a few years later and having an epiphany moment when I realized that it had to go to a different game!

You make me feel so young. It's been awhile, Thanks. ;)
