We should make a Skyrim board DnD group. I'd be down, if we could set it up and there wouldn't be way too many people.
That would be tough to execute, I always found it easier to play DnD with people I personally knew because you always have to take into consideration that people have different attitudes and personalities. What if they don't like the GM? What if they don't like how the story is being set up? Playing with randoms over the internet, while would be fun, would be harder and not as exciting as actually playing with others face to face IMHO. Still, would be cool though.

I started when DnD came in a number of cardboard boxes and the 133t players had their own matching dice. I think it was reading novels like Camelot and the Knights of King Arthur's court in second grade that sparked my interest in fantasy/history. RPGs in many forms were a natural extension of this interest.
