I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment How to deal with rude players?
I think it's a duplicate enough that it's going to get all the exact same answers every problem-players question does (kick him, talk to him, talk to him then kick him, kill his character, etc.).

comment Looking for a game system to handle non-human PCs in a modern setting (Not horror)
This could be done with hundreds of games - try to narrow down more of what you'd like out of a system to support this. What do you "have on hand" and why doesn't it fit? What would make GURPS, FATE, or Savage Worlds a better answer than the other?

comment Simple, classless system for normals exploring ruins of ancient high fantasy world
Don't know about default (it's not out yet) but they say you can not pick one and go nuts on skills and wild-casting...

comment My novice players slaughtered some NPCs out of hand. Do I write this off as a learning mistake or show them the consequences of actions?
Don't answer in comments.

comment How do I handle offended players as GM?
So they didn't even die, just got wounded, and got all pissy? Solution: kill them more. They need breaking in, clearly. Have them read How can I suggest the DM stop trying to kill us?

comment Does a White Mage Arcanist need to Use Magic Device to activate a Wand of Cure Light Wounds?
