|Roleplaying is one of my
biggest passions; so much so that it warrants a sub-domain at my website.
And this is just for the "for fun" side of it...
A little history...
1977, Christmas. I was eight years old, and my mother bought me The Basic Set that year. I don't know that I'd even heard of it at that point - buy my mother had, and though she didn't quite understand what was needed (ie, players) she knew enough to feel it would be good for my imagination.
Obviously, she was right.
Years went by, though iterations of D&D and AD&D and then other games. Superheroics, Western, Scifi, other fantasy games, eventually humour and all the way through the "horror" games of the late 80s and early 90s.
I started running games early on, to horrible results; it wasn't until I was about 15 that I had an epiphany and realised that it was about story and plot and player fun more than numbers and dungeon crawls and hit points and treasure.
Here, in this subdomain, you will find records, characters, links, thoughts, essays, and whatever else. Sadly, as of the past couple years (I say in the middle of 2010), I haven't done any gaming. :(
UPDATE: As of Feb 2011, I am playing (via Skype) in Glenn Walker's DCU-set campaign of a group of anti-heroes (ironically, using the old Marvel Super-Heroes RPG.)
My character is called Mighty Joe and you will several pages (including an in-game journal) here.
