I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment How do I plan out a character's growth in Pathfinder?
Please don't use comments for debating vaguely related topics. They should be used in a limited fashion to point out omissions/errors in, or ask for clarifications of, the answer.

comment What books should I bring with me to my first gaming session?
I think "bring" is a less useful scope than "read" - it doesn't matter what you physically have in hand but reading the PHB would make one infinitely less clueless at start.

comment What books should I buy to play with an average D&D group?
DraconeKing I still am not quite getting it, are you saying that since 4e isn't what every play group is playing, you imagine some other version is and you're asking what you need to buy for those other game(s)? (in which case BESW's answer was on point?)
