I have been gaming since the mid-70’s just after D&D came out in the blue boxed set. I remember a friend and I having to pool money to buy that first PHB (The one with the thieves and the demon altar). I played the first edition Traveller, TS, RM and a host of others. For a long time my favorite game was Powers and Perils, by Avalon Hill. Until about 10 years or so ago, I had said I have or have played in most RPGs out there, but the massive number that have been published lately mitigate that claim. Now I still play several, but my favorites are Role Master Standard System, Shadowrun 3rd ed, Torg (which I have rarely ever played, and never to the end of an adventure) and the recent addition of Savage Worlds.
I am recently retired from the US Air Force, and currently living in the UK, Working as a DOD contractor. My Lady Wife of over 27 years is my most steady gaming partner. It is actually integral to how we met!
