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.

We played Mayfair James Bond but hacked in the Feng Shui ruleset instead of the slightly older, cruftier shipped mechanic and it worked great. Also better for later, more high-action Bond.

comment What is an example of a “Pure” Simulationist system?
TRoS even bills itself explicitly as being narrativist... Detailed combat mechanics != sim.
