My first p&p rpg Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (by Gygax) is still have Willhelm my Human Ranger for it (on level 3 - family didn't get to play much <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/sad.gif" alt="" />). Then I moved on to the Robotech RPG and Call of Cthulhu 2nd Ed. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
My first CRPG was Rogue -- an anscii graphic dungeon devler. Rogue is also what games like Diablo, DiabloII, FATE (pretty much any game where the dungeon changes each time you start a new game) is based on. I actually have versions of this game that will run DOS, Windows, WindowsCE (for my wife's HP iPAQ), and Palm OS (for my Palm of course <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />). The great thing about Rogue was that, and still is, free.
Since making my first character for AD&D, I have played and even run many p&p games, as well as playing many crpgs. For those of u old enough to remember the original Pool of Radiance, I actually played the entire Pool series (Pool of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades, and Pools of Darkness) both on paper and computer. Ah, how I long for the return o fsome of those classics. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
