I bought my first D&D book yesterday. Even though I’ve always been pretty geeky I have never played. When I was growing up my parents would have associated it with demon worship, there’s also the fact that I never knew anyone that played.
I bought the book because I recently read a series call The Twenty-Sided Sorceress (awesome series BTW) and the sorceress used D&D spells to focus her magic. I don’t plan on using it that way but I did like the names of spells that were mentioned and all the details given.
Worst case scenario I’ve added a pretty cool looking reference book to my shelves.
