Scarecrow, I'm not really sure what you mean. Maybe a better explanation will help. I have not played a tabletop RPG before. So I would like to find a D&D game that is for a true beginner at this whole thing. For a little bit I may need someone to hold my hand (but I will say I am a rather quick learner).
Whisper, thank you for moving the post to the proper forum. I have looked at the MW-wiki page. It has helped a little, but does little to answer more specific questions about games. For example when I go to game ads and read the original post I think to myself "Hey, this seems pretty cool!" but then I read all the application stuff and it requires things that I've never even heard of. I guess my current frustration is that I'd really like to play one of these games, but I'm competing to get in a game against a large number of experts. So to answer your questions yes, I want to learn the basics of roleplaying games in general and I would like to learn on one of the D&D systems and perhaps branch out from there.
I hope that explains it a bit better, thanks for your posts.
