But I don't want to fuck a slut drunk enough to fuck anything at a party. I've been propositioned before, but both women were batshit crazy and another was an escort so God knows what she carried.

NAYRT but as an actual wizard I just never really treated losing it as a big deal and ended up passing long periods of time without pursuing opportunities. In my early 20s I was too self conscious and I eventually adjusted to a life where dating/fucking wasn't on the radar.

I have a perfectly functional right hand.
Look, whenever I talk to someone who is surprised that I'm not constantly interested in fucking women, I think of one horndog I used to work with who went and joined the military to (no shit) torture people. Like specifically to torture people. He didn't get assigned a role that would put him in such a position, thankfully, but it's always made me wonder whether I'm better off simply containing my autism, because there was something clearly wrong with that guy.
It was said to me in confidence, so I haven't told anyone other than a few people who either couldn't identify who I was talking about or are required not to talk or both.

To be fair, you can't exactly judge whether or not it's good for your mental health because you haven't experienced it. I would give more credit to the other anon, who has been fucking sluts and has found it good for his mental health, than to you, who merely assumes it would not be.

Most of the good stuff from 3e either got put into Pathfinder (there's a reason it's called 3.pf) or 5e, if not both, so the vast majority of people who really liked 3e have no reason not to move to one of the two 3e-similar systems that are currently in print.

>> No.77696440

This thread makes me look at myself a little. I am a very horny dude, but I never wanted to have meaningless sex. And when I finally got the chance to fuck a random chick, it felt hollow and I felt like trash afterwards. It didn't feel good to have a purely physical relation with someone.
Ever since I got a girlfriend, and one that is just as horny and open about her sexuality as I am, and that supports me and loves me for who I am, the sex is just another facet of my affection for her, not the point of the relation. And all that at 26 years old.
I'll basically say what some other anons were saying: you do you, my dudes.
There's no need to rush.

ntayrt but another wizard here. No, I have basically never experienced desire the way other men appear too. I have some vague interest in sex as a thing that could theoretically happen, but no drive at all to pursue it as a goal. The interest simply isn't there.
>>77695396
I got into roleplaying mostly through 3.5 (though my first game ever was a decrepit boxset of the FASA startrek RPG). I dunno if my experience is common, but I just slid off of it after a while and become more interested in other games. While I might arguably be considered a 3.5 grog, and own way too many books for it, I stan almost exclusively for GURPS these days.

The closest thing I know to a 3e grognard is someone I play DnD 3.5 with. He has the 3.0 phb and is mostly used to Neverwinter Nights. He tries to cast multiple spells per turn with haste, uses spring attack as complete freedom of movement, and constantly references the 3.0 rules. It's fine with me cause whatever it's all for fun anyway but if I was the dm I'd probably be a bit stricter with the rules.

They moved on to Pathfinder, which if it was released now would be called a Retroclone of 3.5e I suppose. Other than that, 3rd edition's d20 system was so widespread that there are hundreds of modules and games based on it to satisfy any itch well into the future.
Or maybe not enough time has passed for nostalgia to set in for it I dunno.
(Also, are there 2e fans around? They seem to be a very small minority. Most OSR play is done with B/X and very rarely 1e. The only retro clone of 2e I know of is For Gold and Glory and rarely does anyone mention it.)

I run a 2e game but I strip out a lot of the rules. Most of the stuff introduced in complete books slow the game down. I'm working on 2e retro clone sense Gold and Glory has spell errors and other things.
