How time flies especially considering I played my first roleplaying game in the fourth grade: D&D basic in a purple or red box set if my memory serves me right. A good friend opened my eyes to Tolkien when I was eleven, then MERP came along and the world has never been the same. It’s been a really long time since I’ve been a player. The fact that I love stories and narrating landed me inevitably in the GM (now LM) seat amongst the gamers I know.
Currently, I’m running a campaign in Cubicle 7’s new The One Ring (TOR) Roleplaying Game. Titled “Hope’s Flickering Flame,” I intended to use Obsidian Portal for managing the campaign. Never really happened though as I am too unfamiliar with site to use it effectively. Some time soon though…
TOR’s my new gaming passion and one I don’t think will pass anytime soon. MERP ran longer for me that it did my gaming friends, so it passed on with the passing of my crew. (Not under the Wheel just on to other things.) I attempted a play-by-post TOR game on Obsidian Portal some months ago. First experience at PBP, and I must say an interesting one though I will always prefer the old-fashioned method of sitting around a table.
During the day I work at a power generation company as an engineer. Not bad work, but mostly in it for the fact it supports my family. Given other turns in life I might have been a full-time of theology or Tolkien studies, or better yet both. Those are two passions of mine after my wife and children.
