It all has to start somewhere.  You may not have noticed, but many of us on the Geekly Oddcast are really into pen and paper RPGs.  Well, one night, after recording an episode of Odder Worlds, we decided to talk about our RPG experience and how we got started in one of our favorite hobbies.  This is a story of first steps, of childhood, of introductions, gateway games, and how it all began for a generation that grew up with the internet but not ‘with’ the internet.

Panel: Tom Herman, David Herman, Jarod Cerf, Kenneth Hurt
