With a family it's tough to do stuff on my own, but I hope to get some one-shots in every now and then at these meetups. I already host and run a weekly game with friends, but you never know, there may be room for one more!
For one-shot games it doesn't matter what the system is. For campaigns, I've found that I prefer systems that kinda make some almost realistic sense regarding character advancement (before applying powers and special abilities). Thus, I try to steer clear of D&D and Pathfinder for campaigns. Playtesting-wise, I'm always up for playtesting systems and adventures that I'm working on for publication (and my own personal amusement). I think I have about 4 on the go currently!
I'm up for trying anything once (or twice, or more!). I guess it also depends on my mood. I'm all for playing a 10, but I'm not one to complain if the GM turns that 10 into a 1 on the fly.
As mentioned above, I run a weekly campaign already (I'm always the GM, it seems!). I'd like to play for a change at the meetups, but I can always jump in with a one-shot game or two.
I've GM'ed probably 75% of the time. Which systems? Crickey, there are a lot. Spycraft 2.0, Dungeons & Dragons 3.5, Fantasy Craft, Dark Heresy, Warhammer Fantasy RP 1st & 2nd Editions, Legend, Call of Cthulhu 6th Edition, Savage Worlds Revised, New World of Darkness, OVA, Basic Roleplaying, Tri-Stat dx, BESM 2nd & 3rd Editions, Wushu, Pathfinder, Dragon Age, Fiasco, Microscope, Mouse Guard, A Song of Ice and Fire, Exalted, about 5 or 6 home-brew games... ...and that list doesn't include different settings! So, yeah. A lot!
I started roleplaying about 14 years ago with colleagues after work at GW. I met my wife whilst RPing, our eldest child plays & now my day job is game and graphic design for Modiphius Entertainment, Mindjammer Press & Crafty Games. RPGs are my life!
