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 can I get people to play a “diceless system”?
Question reopened and answers deleted. You should be answering based on real experience (the Back It Up! principle, see blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/09/good-subjective-bad-subjective. If you haven't done this, please don't answer with your theoretical musings on the subject. I'm sure many people have convinced their group to try a game outside their comfort zone, answer with what's worked in practice.

comment What games are out there that could be played in a single night, with no prep?
I don't think someone could run Paranoia without reading the rulebook, which is a requirement of the question.

comment I'm not a DM anymore. How do I adjust to being a player again?
This question is fine as system-agnostic.
