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

comment When exactly do “once each round” effects work?
Good question, we often have bleed vs regeneration order of operations arguments...

A really good point; see related question rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/13954/… for more on that.
