I've always been interested in these sorts of things, rpg, gaming etc, but been too shy to join. Now I've finally joined a dnd 4th ed group and I'm going soon.
I'm positive it's my thing, but I'm not totally ready to buy stuff yet. So, what can I do to prepare? I already have a group of characters that I know intimately, could I bring them and adapt/specify as needed or am I expected to build one from scratch every time?
What should I expect? A friend took me to a gaming hall once but I was too intimidated to absorb anything, so I have absolutely no idea.
I have a really strong imagination and I world-build all the time in my head, this is a good thing right? What other personal qualities should I work on?
Anything you think would help is much appreciated - also I'm autistic so this is really intimidating for me, all the socialising aspect of it.
