(Drawing up a fake treasure map and promising equal shares all around might work as an introduction to the other players.)
In B/X D&D I'd pick magic-user. My backstory would involve being an entertaining swindler of sorts who worked "part-time" for the thieves guild but didn't realize that the guild was serious about the "no work on your own" thing; so now on the run and looking for a few sturdy companions to relocate with; quickly.
Since I keep directing people from FB to this profile: Yes, it's really me, this is my new home away from home away from home. For RPG stuff anyway. Sign up for any Mastodon instance and then follow me. If I know you personally, I'll certainly follow you back. If I don't know you, well, I'll check out your profile and we'll see.
Feels like the 101th time I've joined yet another mastodon instance? I am a B/X D&D person. I dig reaction rolls. Every few years I post about D&D at https://nilisnotnull.blogspot.com/ When I grow up, I want to run games like @kensanata does. I don't know if I like social networks anymore. I used to live in Baltimore, MD but I am back in Munich, Germany now. And 2020 has really sucked so far. Well, except for the time when I ran a B/X D&D game at a convention, right before COVID hit. #introduction
I'll play just about anything, but I prefer running house-ruled B/X D&D games with a somewhat Gygaxian flavor.
