    I would actually like to play but I believe with my current life situation I won't be able to. Nothing wrong has happened but I'm preparing to get a new job and I'm still trying to work out how I can continue playing with my current D&D group without things clocking heads. :(

    I wouldn't mind playing if somebody could explain what the game is, what it consists of and how to play lol.

    Basically you have the players and the Dungeon-master (DM). The DM sets up a campaign/story for the players to run through and narrates. Throughout the game the players interact with the world, make decision, get into combat etc. Whether an action taken by a player is successful is usually determined by their character's stats and dice rolling. For example, your party is in a dark cave and you decide to try and look around for monsters - you might add up your perception stat and then roll a "d20" (Dice that goes from one to twenty) and add the two together. If the number you get meets the DM's set value for success, you might see there's a monster inside, if not you might not. There are different dice for different situations, but you can find a rolling simulator that has them all at https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm. The whole adventure continues in this choose-your-own-y way until you succeed or everyone dies.

    Ok, so I've posted a link to the 5e handbook above. What I need first from everyone is the race and class they'd like their character to be. Don't worry about names yet or background details, anything like that. I'll work with each of you with your characters to establish a bit of backstory within the campaign world. Post your character choice so we can continue.
    For example: Halfling Rogue, Dwarf Cleric, Elf Barbarian, etc.
