What is your RPGA/DCI number (if available, not required)?

Paizo (Pathfinder) #79392. Wizards (4E D&D) #[masked]

What is your preferred time of day to play at the meetup?

For the monthly Saturday meetup, I used to DM in the 10 AM slot and ran a campaign for 4 years. For home campaigns, I prefer Saturday or Sunday. I have also been a DM and player during the weekdays in the evenings, but currently I can't make it happen.

What edition/s of D&D are you currently playing or interested in playing? What other role playing games do you play or have an interest in playing?

I am currently a DM for a 5E home campaign after being a DM from[masked] for a 4E campaign at the Saturday meetups and DM for 4E Encounters Seasons 1-6. I also played Pathfinder as a DM and player for a few years but have switched to 5E exclusively. I prefer RPGs that emphasize role playing and developing stories and characters, over focusing on tactical combat, but slaying monsters and finding treasure is still a must for me in any D&D game!

What is your preferred character classes and level of play?

I like to get dirty and play melee characters (fighters, rogues, paladins, bards, and the occasional cleric) who slash, stab, and hack, though I am looking to try playing a 5E monk and trade in swords for fists. Level matters less to me than role playing a character concept.

Do you like to run games as well as play? Let us know!

Yes, I usually DM more than I play, and I am currently a 5E DM for a home campaign. I hope to get back to being a DM at the meetups, especially to help newer folks join the game, either at the monthly meetup or at a weekday meetup. D&D forever!


I like RPGs that emphasize plot, role playing, and shared story telling, and I have been hooked on D&D and fantasy starting with Basic D&D and AD&D. I also enjoy cooperative board games and hanging out with cool and mellow people.

What James R. is saying about this Meetup Group

The Pasadena D&D Meetup is a wonderful opportunity for D&D gamers to meet each other and gather as a big group at Game Empire.
