    Just finished a 4e campaign this summer and am currently running a 2e Vampire the Masquerade story. Playing tonight as a matter of fact.

    I've played a number of role-playing games, but never (A)D&D. Still got the books and lots of dice, but no time nor anyone to play with.

    We have an older thread about RPGs in general (see here), do you want to keep this one specifically about D&D or should I merge the two?

    No D&D, but I do play WoW and SWTOR. Does that count?

    You could try one of these: http://www.mintproducts.com/velvet-coin_pouch-choose-from-three-colors-save-on-quantities.html , only $.49...but shipping might make it less cost-effective, unless you happen to be in the market for some silver or gold. However, you might also try some coin shops in your area.

    I say go with the classic crown royal bag. I have a leather bag that I got at a ren fest a few years back. I've seen some leather workers on the forum. (sorry I don't do names well, and I'm still new here or I would post some names) Maybe they could make you a custom bag?

    P.S. the coolest dice bag I've ever seen was a gold fish bowl

    Merged then, since folks seemed to talk about various non-D&D games as well.

    I use the pouch that came with my only Benchmade knife. Thinkgeek sells a chainmail pouch, which is pretty cool. And dang it, I want those high precision dice even if I haven't played any RPGs for a couple of years.

    Chainmail pouches are cool, but I've seen them chip dice pretty badly. I had one completely eat a Zocchi die set by wrecking the points. The points are there for a reason :(

    That's a nice set! I've got one similar :) Don't have the leather pouch though.

    The other day, I brought my percentage dice into work just to have fun.. Co-worker comes over and says "We need you to do this.. " I say "You have a 35% chance that I'll do it for you" and then roll the dice. ;)

    Made for a fun day :)

    I carry those same metal dice ... but in brushed copper. A warmer look. They've been holding up quite well over the years ...

    I've decided to take a shot at resurrecting this thread.

    [​IMG]

    I've been missing tabletop games pretty hard lately. I find myself wandering around Roll20 often, but ultimately I give up. Something about joining a game with people I don't know at all is just off-putting, and none of my friends in this area are actually into gaming. I'm semi-tempted to aim for an EDCF group, but that sounds like a lot of work. :)

    What kind of games?

    I was into M:tG for a while. But, my passion was for vintage and legacy. And there's just less of it here....almost no vintage at all. The last time I played it was at dragoncon in 2011....I did win that tournament, though. In a 73/75 card mirror match, both differently evolved from the vintage world champion deck. It was a lot of fun. And the Legacy crowd here leaves a bit to be desired...it's very clicky.

    I also really enjoy Talisman. But, I very rarely get to play it.

    I'm not sure if either of these are what you're into, but I miss gaming.

    MTG went through my little gaming community like crack cocaine through a -- we'll never mind. I played a few times but found the whole thing very uninspiring. And as no one else was playing a proper RPG neither was I, and I basically never played again since then. So, I do have a grudge against MTG...

    Before that apocalypse, I played AD&D 1ed, Shadowrun, Champions.

    I have a complete set of Talisman 2ed which I haven't played in decades. I've got a couple of nephews tall enough for it now, though...maybe I'll dust it off.

    My favorite was always D&D, but I've also fooled around with some other stuff like 7th Sea, Spycraft, Wheel of Time, and even some Vampire: The Masquerade.

    Part of the issue is also the maturity of people in general. I tried out a D&D group on Roll20 one time. Let me just say that it was... extremely distasteful.

    That was my one experience with D&D as well (with co-workers). I am a fan of board games, but the only RPGs I've played seriously have been the MMO variety.

    Oh I've played plenty of D&D. I've just re-learned that looking for maturity on the internet is a fool's errand. So I sit here building the occasional character sheet when I get ideas and then doing nothing with them.
