I've been playing roleplaying games since I was 10 years old; that's 36 years for those in the cheap seats. I started out playing original Dungeons & Dragons. The older guys at a scout camp were playing late into the night and because I couldn't sleep they invited me along. I was given a halfling thief to play and the game was amazing, after that I was hooked. Because I lived in a small Michigan town, I had to run games by the time I was 15 if I wanted to play. I haven't stopped yet.
