I’ve been playing these games since I was in middle school, and playing fantasy-style and imaginative games in general since much earlier than that. I love the creativity, intellectualism, and expression that comes along with table-top games and view them not only as entertainment but as a form of artistic story-telling as well.
I have a background in Philosophy, Music, and Law with a smattering of Computer Science and Physics (which is not to say I’m necessarily much good with computers or formulas). I enjoy art of all kinds, especially music and table-top games, and have always been a sucker for an opportunity to indulge the arts.
About my Work:
I spend a lot of my time in games trying to emphasize character & world consistency, plot intrigue, and inventiveness. I like to encourage players to help build the world around them and to really invest in their characters.
My current big project is the “Threads Setting” – started as the Threads of Yarn campaign. This was a game that started as a fun little throw-together, and grew into a 7 player, 14 Player Character, game that lasted three solid years as both an investigation & intrigue game and as a world-building and game-modding project. The present arc of the Threads Setting is that I am developing significant rules variants and replacements for the standard D&D 3.5 rules that the game started with and planning to move forward with the same setting in multiple games throughout the developing history of the world.- – -
Wile I work on ironing out details for the Threads Setting, I am running a game titled The Good Guys, LLC – a tribute game to the excellent webcomic, Order of the Stick. The game is fun, wacky, and meant to encourage players to find fun ways to manipulate the many loope-holes and rules-slips of D&D 3.5 while letting loose on the RP side of things.
