I've been playing D&d with my classmates since middle school. My sister would always be ashamed when I walked into the comic book store and high fived the owner and was known as "the only girl ever to play D&d". Bit of an exaggeration. ;) For some odd reason, however, the game has suddenly started to appeal to her. Now, I'm going to ahead and assume that this is because of all the recent hype about how "cool and cute" nerds are or something absurd like that. She's in high school. God knows what's going through her mind. I didn't realize it until I started digging up my Player's Handbook. This is a lot to take in! I don't know how I'm supposed to teach her all of this information. Heck, it's probably going to take her two hours to fill out a character sheet! I'm pulling together some friends of hers and maybe a few people who have tried to learn in the past. I just want to be able to sit down, fill out the Character Sheet, meet again tomorrow, and get the game rolling as efficiently as possible. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this? None of them will have played, half of them probably think it's a board game, and the other half probably think they're just rolling dice the whole time. How do I explain the numbers to them? The concept? The way their characters should act? The cadence of the game?
