Keeping it in the family

So my sister-in-law kind of dropped an unexpected bombshell on me: she wants to try D&D! AND my sister wants to try it, too! I'm kind of floored. I guess I'm not so much floored by SiL as I am by my sister; I mean, she always did enjoy fantasy and science-fiction novels and television shows, but not as much as I did, really, and she was never really the creative/imaginative type. I have a strong suspicion that she's mostly going along with it for her wife, but I hope she has fun with it, too.

In my head, the chances of SiL wanting to play a druid are hovering somewhere around 97-98%, and the same chances for my sister choosing to play a fighter. But then, this whole thing is surprising enough that I'm pretty much prepared for them to ask to play anything. My sister as a swashbuckling bard? Sure! SiL as a plucky young sorcerer? Why not! It is a game of imagination and possibilities.

We're going to their place for a weekend, where I will walk them through character creation and their very first dungeon crawl. I really, honestly, truly have NO idea what to expect. D&D is so different from group to group. It's one of the things I love about the hobby. Different group, pretty much different game.

I will keep you posted! I am sure hilarity will ensue.
