I'm talking about like a book(or just your brilliance) and some dice?! I really am not all that into computer games(I like some) but seriously...please shout out if you agree!

Haha...My definition of old-school rpg is "offline-rpg".It frustrates me that Square-Enix is catering mainly for MMORPG players these days.Old school gamers like me who play games only on their Xbox 360 are left in the cold!
Even happened recently with Arkane Studio's....I saw such promise in 'Dark Messiah of Might and Magic',yet it seems they have focused on creating a "single player MMORPG or multiplayer single player games or something like that"(You gonna have to google Arkane Studios and visit their site to understand this concept)
On a higher note though, 'Magic the Gathering' for PS3 with the eyetoy seems pretty cool!

I play with a group most thursday nights. We mostly use the Champions system. The group has been together since college. I joined about 6 years ago, and I am the youngest at 41.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
