I lean towards tabletop roleplay, though am quite fond of boardgames, as well. DnD, Traveller, GURPS, True20, and a number of others are favorites.
For my RP, I enjoy magical steampunk, if there's such a thing. Bind a steam elemental to power your airship. :) I enjoy *reading* urban fantasy, but I'm not sure I've yet found the right RPG that does justice to my preferred blend of Charles De Lint, Stina Leigh, Robert Holdstock, and Jonathan Lethem.
Maybe I should have held off on that last, but of late I've been reading some updated urban fantasy and harder sci-fi, such as Greg Bear.
Most recently, I ploughed right through "And Blue Skies from Pain", so I'm hoping to pick up the next installment in the series. At the moment, I've got some classic Fafhrd & Grey Mouser underway, a gaming supplement about Mind Flayers, and a hard sci-fi novel called "Hull Zero Three".
I'm a 40-something gamer living in Kingston and working far away in downtown. It's grand to hear there's a place forming up right there across the water.
