I have been playing role playing games for over of half of my life and have been running games for nearly that long as well (going on seventeen years). I majored in film, English, and theology in college and have only being a well rounded individual to show for it (which is not a bad thing in the grand scheme of things).
I love RPGs because I always seem to make friends when playing or running games. It is one of the most diverse forms of self-expression I have ever seen, and has the most immediate result. They also let me tell a story with a message that is amazingly organic and on a level beyond that of film, books, or music. It uses all of these things, and lets others be more than a mere observer… We can be participants in the stories. It’s like this crazy, mechanical, living jazz…. Unfolding right in front of me. What is not to like about that?
A little bit more about me? I love Doctor Who, Star Wars, and steampunk. I’ve never heard a type of music I did not like on some level, and my tastes always seem to grow a bit more with each new song I hear. Favorite movie of all time? Has to be a tie between Jaws and E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial…. That little bugger from Saturn always chokes me up.
Anything else you want to know about me? Read my campaign’s as they grow or just ask.
