I've never played DnD before, but I do enjoy all of the wacky stuff that can happen in it. I think I have a bit of a basic understanding of the mechanics from following a tumblr called yourplayersaidwhat and watching youtube videos from, for example, puffin forest, then researching terms I heard but didn't understand from those sources. I do think that if I were to get into this, I would definitely need to be in the Alpha Thread to make sure I have my grasp on these things as firm as I think I do.

Also, you said no legendary-esque pokemon, am I free to assume the pseudo-legendary pokemon (Dragonite, Tyranitar, etc.) are not considered legendary-esque? (May seem like a stupid question, but if it is a power-scale issue, better to be on the safe side.)
