My name is Kristy Cutsforth and I currently live in the midwest in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I would say I’m a pretty all over the place geek. I’m an artist and love reading anything that is well written and entertaining. I enjoy cosplaying, I’m a writer, I love to cook and bake, I passionately listen to all genres of music, and I’m a vegan animal lover with 2 cats. I’ve been married to my college sweetheart since I was 23 and we both passionately love to play role playing games together. I currently run and operate my own cosmetics business, Pumpkin and Poppy Cosmetics. Most of my makeup collections are inspired by nerdy things like Lord of the Rings, The Tudors, Star Wars, Labyrinth, etc…
I actually had a pretty rough start when it came to playing RPG’s. I began my first campaign in 2008 in the middle of an already established group playing 3.5, at level 5. I choose an Elf wizard and had NO IDEA what I was doing. I didn’t have a player handbook, I was every Dungeon Master’s nightmare. Fast-forward to 2015 and I began playing Dungeons and Dragon’s 5th edition. I actually read the PHB this time and developed a cat-folk life cleric named Rowena Nailo that started my passion for role playing.
I came upon Castle Falkenstein when I was researching steampunk rpgs and I purchased the core rulebook. It read like a great fantasy-steampunk hybrid novel, I was hooked and had to run a game for my friends. I currently run my own Castle Falkenstein game, which is how I came to be in contact with J. Gray (who wrote the Curious Creatures supplement and Tarot Variation for CF for Fat Goblin Games) and why I’m in the Castle Falkenstein campaign here on Obsidian Portal. Castle Falkenstein is definitely hands down my favorite role playing game because it combines so many things I adore: the Victorian era, history, steampunk, fantasy, magic, and adventure. I really hope this game becomes popular again because it is a gem and its a truly magical experience to play in the world of New Europa.
