What are your favorite genres? (horror, fantasy, western, sci-fi . . .)

Fantasy, but I'm flexible. I like grit, not powergaming. I generally favor lower magic (magic is MAGICAL!) settings, but I can roll with a setting like Glorantha. It's about the consistency of the narrative for me. If we're in a hardcore simulationist mode, that might mean me trotting out my wargamer / medievalist hat...

What are your favorite game systems?

I can go super crunchy, or hardcore narrative. Right now I'm interested in a lot of indie, pseudo-OSR stuff, like: Dungeon World, Dungeon Crawl Classics, Advanced Hackmaster (the new HM), ACKS (Adventurer-Conqueror-King, though I don't own it), Other-stuff-I-can't-think-of-right-now. The one thing I've no interest in is D&D (any version), Pathfinder, or retro-clones that are bound too tightly to the old ways. Whatever I play, I'm likely to hack if GMing.

Are you looking for a new game/group in Austin?

No answer yet

What was your first RPG experience?

Playing "Melee" in 1977. "Melee" was a microgame that via a long development cycle morphed into "GURPS". From that, OD&D boxed set. Greyhawk was a supplement for me, not a setting. Yep, I'm that old. I grew to really not like D&D as a system. Fortunately, there was Runequest (became BRP and basis of Cthulu), The Fantasy Trip (halfway house between Melee & Gurps), all melded together w/incessant mad homebrewing. We all homebrewed then...

What websites do you prowl for rpg releated information?

Er... google? rpggeek and seem to have the most reasonable communities. That said, I'm not a member of either of them.


40 something. I do tech work, and political work. I'm into markets. I was a musician once upon a time. I'm interested in getting back into rpgs for a variety of reasons. Been a loooong time...
