Long-time D&D player, favorite settings back in the day were Dragonlance, Dark Sun and Ravenloft, preferably all mixed together. Really, homebrew has always been king. Especially homebrew with peices borrowed from all those excellent sources out there.
Favorite parts of the game: (1) design, everything from new player races to campaign story arcs and (2) making a new character while waiting for my current character to get squished.
Non-RPG stuff: Married (woohoo) with two kids (again, woohoo), located in a Spokane (why not) suburb (yuck), employed in software.
