About Grimkrieg
Introduction:
Looking to play and create great games
About Me:
I have been playing RPGs in one form or another since I was ten (1985). In some ways I am still that power-gaming little munchkin as a player, but I mostly GM so it rarely comes up.

I hate gNs. Don't even try that crap with me ;)

I have written seven novels and three novellas partly based on my game worlds, all self-published. I am actually procrastinating from my 1500 words nightly on novel #8 in the first series as I write this.

I have children and step-children. They game :D

My most profitable job was working on computer games, but the monetization aspects of modern game design sickened me so I left that job and now I am a lot poorer, but happy and self-directed :)

My Game Details

Details of games currently playing and games being sought.

Town:
Guelph
State:
Ontario
Country:
Canada
Game Details:
My longest running game is a custom system with a personal setting called Fantachronica. It is epic fantasy where the players take on the roles of mythic heroes gathering power and knowledge to face down truly abominable foes and influence the world. Inspiration is taken from history but seasoned with over twenty years of campaigning and tinkering with rules.

I considered publishing it, but the gNs wars soured me on the idea, and I went into computer gaming and writing instead.
More information:
Private games with custom settings
My Character:
I realize now, after thirty years of gaming that most of my characters have been an attempt to recreate that dynamic Larry Elmore picture of a warrior, swinging his sword at a Red Dragon on the first set of Basic D&D that I saw.

  • 02:21 AM - ad_hoc quoted Grimkrieg in post Mearls' "Firing" tweet
    I find his wording a bit off, especially since I like complex rules ;) ... but I have to apply the principle of charity here. I think he is referring to the gate-keeping behavior being the problem, not my love of Champions and Power-gaming nature. 'insist on gatekeeping' is the key part of the sentence and the complexity and density of lore are given as ways that people accomplish that. If the gatekeeping part was more passive and occurred at the end of the sentence then I would say that it was poorly worded. As it is, the subject is clear to me.
