Bio

I have been gaming since I was about 10 years old, or knee-high to gnoll. My dad and I bought the old (somewhat new at the time) red box D&D on a lark for my older sister. She never really played, but her boyfriend played and I was interested, so he ran a couple of games for us. I was already hooked on fantasy and science fiction, and I was hooked on a new way to explore the worlds I loved. I quickly moved from D&D Basic to AD&D (1st edition). When 2nd edition came out five years later I balked and grumbled, and then saw that they fixed many of the glaring problems that we had been band-aid patching for years. AD&D 2nd edition. always was and always will be my game, and I spent many long hours trekking across all the known realms. In between I played a multi-verse of other games, but most especially G.U.R.P.S., Champions, the Worlds of Darkness, Shadowrun, Middle Earth (Rolemaster), as well as Battletech and Rifts (Palladium). I only played D&D 3e and 3.5e a few times, and found them much too crunchy to be truly enjoyable. I never played 4e, but I have fallen in love with 5e. Despite my complaints of D&D 3-4 I love the renewed interest they brought to the game that allowed for the evolution into 5e. I have also done a lot of free-form online roleplaying, back in the bad old days of AOL chatrooms and IRC. I have DMed many games, and I enjoy crafting worlds as much as playing in them. A good game, as player or DM, is a special type of magic. For many years I was a performer at the Oklahoma Renaissance Festival, and I learned how it really feels to wear armour and wield a sword, not to mention a thing or two about creating magic.

While I left the worlds of imagination for a time, I have returned with a vengeance. I jumped into online role-playing, exploring Roll20 first, and then Fantasy Grounds. I play primarily on FG, with Discord for voice and video.

I am a bartender and student, pursuing a teaching degree. I want to teach Literature to high school students. I know, I'm a masochist! I bring a discerning eye to mixing drinks and crafting delightful experiences for my guests, and I try to bring that same discernment and delight to my games. With the pinch to my pocketbook brought about by this crazy world, I have decided to try to make a few extra dollars doing something I love.
