The Shaman

I played tabletop miniatures and board-and-chit wargames for a few years before I was introduced to roleplaying games with the Holmes blue-box edition of Dungeons and Dragons in 1977; we gravitated to 1e AD&D as the books were released by TSR.

I soon picked up Metamorphosis Alpha, Boot Hill, Traveller, and Top Secret; my favorite roleplaying games continue to be historical and science fiction. Other games I played included Bunnies and Burrows, Mercenaries, Spies, and Private Eyes, Chill, MegaTraveller, Marvel Super Heroes, and Warhammer Fantasy Roleplaying. In 1989 I quit gaming for thirteen years; in 2002 I saw 3e D&D in a store and picked it up; soon after I gravitated to d20 Modern and Mutants and Masterminds. In 2005 I renewed my interest in the games of my youth, beginning with original, now-"classic" Traveller, running a short campaign; presently I'm running a Flashing Blades campaign, ran a Boot Hill one-shot at a small con, and continue looking for players for a Top Secret campaign.

I participate in a con each year with some of the local gamers from Dragonsfoot. I'm a member of the St Crispin's Irregulars Meetup, though I haven't been to a game-night in awhile.

I have two young children whom I hope may someday enjoy roleplaying games as much as I do.

My other hobbies include cycling, paddling, and backpacking and camping. I read a lot of history and historical fiction.
