We’re essentially a bunch of nerds that enjoy the game, and the process, and want to keep playing until we are crusty old raisins.
Some of us have experience playing Basic D&D from the early 80’s and then Advanced D&D, including the 2nd Edition in Jr. High and High School. When we started the Atlin setting we played version 3 and 3.5 which served us well. We tried version 4 out for a bit and found it pretty lame so we then played the “beta” version of D&D 5.
We are now fully using D&D 5 and most people seem to be enjoying the simplicity and awesomeness of the rules.
