Matt says "Pace yourself, make sure the game speaks to you and get comfortable with the system/adventure."
Donn says "Have it be something you're excited about and be confident."
Edgar says "It's not about you, it's about the folks at your table. Do what it takes to make sure they're having fun."
Adam says "Don't freak yourself out. You won't know what it takes until you do it."

Third Rail of Gaming

Alignment - 3-Point or 9-Point Alignment?
Matt: 3-Point
Edgar: Hates alignment, chooses 3 under the gun.
Donn: 3-Point
Adam: 3-Point

Does 9-Point Alignment suck?
Matt: Too cumbersome.
Adam: Good & evil are irrelevant.
Edgar: 9-Point sucks because of insurance tables.
Donn: Evil is evil. Suggests a two alignment system: "cool" or "asshole."
