Wasn't Vin Diesel heavily into DnD or was it Warcraft? I know he likes the genre in general.

Definitely D&D, and both iirc

I got to play 4e a little bit years ago and I was just really getting into it when the group I played with fell apart. Initially I enjoyed the combat more, because I enjoy the strategy and movements needed to gain the best result; playing as a rogue (dark elf), that was important for me to deal better damage. Eventually, though, the banter was more enjoyable. I need to move to a larger city so I can find a group to sit in and eventually play with.

Fuck 4e, homie. If you're all about tactics and strategy like me, Pathfinder is the only way to go

I'm real into 5e personally. It's also the only system I've tried but I found it very approachable. I hear Pathfinder is better in terms of customization, that the math help simulate all things better, but I'm playing with a bunch of new players and 5e is still something they're all trying to pick up (and beginning to get). They're killing it on the banter part.

This was my experience with RPGs as well. When I was a DM, as long as my players were having fun and roleplaying well, I'd fudge the rules so their characters that they were invested in wouldn't be killed off if they hit a bad roll.

This store in Brooklyn has D&D sessions, I haven't had time to go though.

I've never done a store session either. I live closer to Brooklyn Strategist which I think also has sessions.

I’m kind of jonesing to play after looking through the 5e books. When I was a kid I was always into the damage dealing aspect of character creation but I’d love to play a bard. Good battlefield control spells, party stats and rolls buffing (which seems more fun that constantly healing like the typical support character does), and they’d be great from a role playing perspective with the high CHA and multitude of skills.

You just act out some stuff, and anytime the stuff you say pure going to do is not garunteed to work and also not def going to fail, you roll a 20 sided die. Then you add numbees to that, the higher your total the better you do. Usually there are 6 stats (strength, dexterity, constitution, intelligence, wisdom and charisma) depending on what you’re doing you’ll usually add a number based on one of those. If you’re really good at a thing in particular (proficient) you add more or that roll on top of the ability based number.

Beyond that, you decide what kind of character you want—essentially do you want a lot of physical prowess or are you more into magic and the mind? Maybe you want some of both? Your class helps shape all of that and what kinds of things you can do.

Next step would be to do a little google research or ask specific questions tho.

How'd I miss this??

I played a lot as a kid and picked it back up about a year ago at DragonCon. Now I regularly play weekly (my group is running Curse of Strahd, which is DARK af and Storm King's Thunder which is light and fun as hell.) Generally we play by AL rules so we can use the characters at different cons/events. We also do individual mods at store sessions.

I assume your group plays homebrew?
