Are you a DM or a Player?

Player. I have the ability and experience to DM, but not the time.

What game do you prefer? (e.g. D&D 3.5, Shadow Run, etc.)

D&D 4e. I'm open to other systems, but I strongly prefer 4e D&D for the well defined roles and combat tactics. I prefer playing team-player type characters, and tend to focus on powers which position allies or enemies. I actually like campaigns with a bit of railroading - I get frustrated when I have no idea what we're supposed to do.

How long have you been a D&D gamer?

All my life. Seriously, I picked up my dad's 1e D&D books back when I was 5, and memorized every monster in the monster manual. I tried DMing once in middle school, but didn't really start playing until high school (Star Wars d6 RPG). In college, it was L5R and D&D3e.

When is the best time and day for you to play?

If weekdays, after 7. Weekends are better though.


I'm a biotech professional and statistics student who commutes by bicycle and mass transit. When I play games, I tend to get really into powergaming my characters (without going so far as to make things unfun for the group).
