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 Is it really possible to represent a 'genius' character completely accurately?
Yeah, I'd like a more system-agnostic version of this question; when tied to a system it becomes more uninteresting.

comment Reward distribution and story continuity with rotating players/GMs
Good question! I think it's OK to focus on two aspects that you'll doubtless encounter in doing this, it's more focused than just "how'd it go/tell me what to watch out for" like many questions ask.
