Technically speaking, I am quite far from A Complete Noob when it comes to playing tabletop RPGs. I am on the committee of my local club, which meets once a week in a community centre to run a huge variety of games – from the big names of Dungeons & Dragons and Call of Cthulhu, to quirky little homebrews, and everything in between.
I first joined the club around 2 years ago, and I was terrified walking into that room. I didn’t know a single person there, but they had seemed friendly enough on the Facebook page. And anyway, I told myself, this is the one social situation where you can guarantee that pretty much everyone is at least as socially awkward as you. It was one of their “drop in” sessions, and if I remember correctly I played a one-shot scenario of Lamentations of the Flame Princess.
