Tabletop Roleplaying is a way of life. A philosophy or worldview. I choose to spend my time and focused attention on TRPGs. I'm a TRPG intronaut. I GM and I PC.

I'm creating an open-source TRPG called the Fifth Edition Focus Practice (5eFP). 5eFP is in alpha playtest and actively looking for more participants. Contact me to find out which builds we need.

Once upon a time storytelling was an integral part of our lives. We taught with stories, reminisced with songs and stories, shared great deeds, and united people with stories. TRPG is a lost form of experiential storytelling we are rediscovering right now! Let's explore it together.

Some words I'd use to describe me: Passionate and creative visionary. Director style: relater/influencer. Bohemian renaissance man. Secular and nonsecular humanist.

More on TRPGs.

Some call us "gamers" or even "storytellers." These labels are barely adequate. They serve to identify us in a large group, but they merely nick the surface of a Herculean iceberg hidden beneath the surface of a vast ocean. We are the iceberg and the ocean too! We are both the audience and the characters in an unfolding series of our own creation.

TRPGs transform our personal experience, allowing us to relate to ourselves and others in mysterious and miraculous ways. They give us ways to create characters and interrelationships within stories that embody aspects of ourselves in some way. We are Life seeking to understand itself through story, theater, symbol, and allegory.

Over time and practice, we gain a greater sense of who we are and what we want in our life. All of this is fuel for life's great anvil of personal transformation. Our experiences within TRPGs inform our waking ("normal") lives in fascinating ways.

We momentarily transcend our individual focus to include others in a shared narrative. We become larger than the sum of our individual parts. Together, we build words of wonder and adventure waiting for us to seek and explore—a great expedition into imagination for everyone to enjoy.
