Marcus W's First game!
"The very first time I played any table top RPG was DnD 5th ed. I was rolling a Half Orc Paladin. This was during the early beta so I didn't want to get too attached, which was probably for the best as he died later during that campaign. During my first combat phase a fighter and myself were in the thick of battle surrounded by cultist back to back in order to prevent flanking. So, for my first roll, I choose the biggest baddest target within reach... then I rolled a natural 1. I ended up dropping my hammer on my fighter companion's head for nearly max damage.
"It all worked out in the end. We won and I was actually able to "save" the day by jumping over a huge cavernous pit in order to grab a staff that was required to complete our mission. Since that day I have been hooked. Regardless of all of the natural 1's I have rolled since then, RPG's have provided me with new stories to tell, new ways of looking at things, and amazing people that I would never have known otherwise."
