Group topic

We got some feedback from Kelly:

Dear Liz and Mike,
I’ve been listening to the NED podcast from the beginning and really enjoy listening to your exploits in RPGs. I’ve never taken part in one myself but your continued enthusiasm has really piqued my interested and I’d like to give it a go.

The thing is I have no idea how to go about this. I’m slightly intimidated by the intensity and fervour of some of the players who may not respond well to a new person who knows absolutely nothing about the rules of the game. Is there someone out there running D&D for beginners?

Are there friendly groups that would allow someone to come along and quietly observe one of their evenings to get a feel for it? Is there lingo I need to learn? Books I need to read??
Enlighten me oh mighty Games Masters!
