Family man with over 25 years of roleplaying experience. Trying to get back into gaming after a 6 year hiatus. I value story based roleplaying over die rolling, but the dice are there for a reason (plus they make cool noises when they bounce off the table). I have been playing D&D since the blue box Dungeons and Dragons days.
I have played many RPG systems over the years, including: Arcanum, Champions (Hero System), Dungeons and Dragons(original, basic, expert, Advanced, 2nd Ed, 3rd ed, 3.5, and 4e), GURPS, Vampire: the Masquerade, Werewolf: the Apocalypse, Mechwarrior, Rolemaster, Traveler, The Fantasy Trip, Elric!, Earthdawn, Aftermath, Rifts, Palladium, Runequest, Shadowrun, Twilight 2000, Teenagers from Outer Space, Paranoia, TMNT, Pendragon, and who knows what all else I have forgotten.
I also have dabbled in many miniature games and card games over the years.
